The point is there are still way to many unstable crashing WIN's, OK I get that in manufacturing you will see some defects but this is still way out of control at this point.
Trust me I want a working unit as badly as you do but I'm not a gambling man and really don't want to spend much too valuable time trying to fix something that should not be broken to begin with.
A) it's not known it's a software or hardware issue for sure
B) we keep seeing the same 20 or 30 people saying their unit doesn't work (also after a clean reinstall which is not much work and you may want to do anyway), there have been about 2500 shipped out to IGG, 2000 to Jd and hundreds to resellers
C) Most problems seem to be reported by people within a short range of time, strongly indicating it's one batch. All but one persons on the spanish forums were happy. Japanese seemed happy. Happy germans also on youtube. We just don't hear about them, because they use Japanese or spanish or German language forums. GPD seemed to ship out mostly by country. I think the shit just had hit the fan in the batch made right at the moment they started shipping to English speaking markets - which is why on here they seem aklmost universally shit.
If on the Spanish forum they seem almost as universally great, it's probably one bad batch.
D) even for English markers, we don;t know how many hundreds are enjoying their wins.
TLDR: remember last year? We had a poll when the XD was released, more then 30% of respondents had non-working XD's! The poll results were basically the same! Yet you are totally correct in what you said in your last post, the XD's mostly worked great! Why? Because the poll results were more skewed then skewered meat on a shaslick stick.
Especially since not only are people with issues more likely to report it, they are alo more likely to keep track of the forums all day long because we are discussing possible solutions here, and thus they are a hundred times more likely to even see a topic with a poll has been made. Proof? Simple. Within two hours we had 9 people reporting the bottom bar, and one in the upper. Now, 30 hours later, we still have 9 people in the lowest bar, and 11 in the upper two bars with no problems.
CLEARLY, people are much, much quicker with reporting when they have issues then when they don't. So it's very liely that if hte percentage here is (by now) 36 (yesterday it was 85...), in reality the % with unusable units is more like 5% at most.
