Finally my GT got shipped!
Thanks Martin, for providing the info!

Registered with 2 tracking numbers.
Hopefully we’ll not hear about folks getting only half of a Giga Thrower in the days to come…. Wink

Happy new year!

Yes, there are still some not shipped, we knew they would not get all of them before the CNY.

From what I can gather there are ~50 lights not shipped at this point.

But there are some first lights that are not shipped like mine, some users got their third lights, that makes me realy angry .

Most of those were because they were simply shipping by country or they were next to each other on the list.

Trust me, lumintop is not playing favorites here, they don’t have a clue who or what the lights are going to. All they know is they pack them up and slap a shipping label on them.

I agree it is far from ideal but no matter what someone would not have their light right now, so if you had your light, someone else would be in your shoes. There is no perfect option here.

On the other hand, people who bought more GTs and at a higher price with DHL option are far more valuable customers for Lumintop than those like me who are waiting for one GT from the 111 group sent via registered shipping. Maybe that is why we have to wait so long, simple business math IMHO, although not fair at all.

Nah, this is not the case, Lumintop doesn’t even know who paid $111 and who paid $150. Neal handles all the money and just sends them a list of addresses that they need to ship lights to. I have seen the lists, there is nothing at all except the shipping and contact information for people, nothing about payment.

I was under the impression the first 555 was simply for the lowest price in the group buy? I will admit that by now I would be mildly worried, not angry, about paying months ago and not hearing a bean. But then I’d kick back and realise I only paid $111 for a world-beater – less than the amount I’ve seen some really tiny lights go for.

Correct, the only thing the first 555 got was the cheaper price, priority service was never part of the deal.

Although I can understand people being frustrated that it has taken so long. Trust me, so am I. I had hoped to be done with this whole project last year so I could move on to other things.

I have a fairly simple question, is there anyone else in the U.S. that paid in the 2nd batch (fairly early) and NOT recv’d their light yet?

Any guarantee that who is in first and 2nd batch will be sent/get shipping notice before 3rd batch will start?

or we will see someone from 3rd batch got GT but not rest of 1st and 2nd one.

Thanks

My tracking number (I got one from Martin) don’t fit with China Post tracking …

After 10+ emails to Neal I finaly got an answer, probably from his wife…

Hey

Just checked

your GT still not shipped

will ship after the Chinese New Year with DHL

What can I say, I’m very sad. Crying

Around 200 orders were still open, 180 lights were shipped this week, this means 99% of GT were shipped. Maybe I’m the last… Crying
Maybe I will never get it. Who knows…

Even if I get it, GT will arrive in 4th month (March) after my payment.

You are from first batch?

Yes first batch:

gregor [116]

Not good. Crying
After 1+ month of emailing Neal I got such answer on the day they start holidays.
I can’t even reply. I must now wait for 2 more weeks and then wait again to get some new information.
If I will get it?, based on past emails, there is no guarante that I will get any info.

So my GT will maybe arrive in March, maybe April… Question

Kind regards
