Tnx for that folks, I’ve just had a look on the B O B site and they’ve got a jacob “C30” listed for £9, which claims longer throw and more lumens!!.
So what do you think, A60, or C30??

I dont think the C3o will beat the jacobs A60 at all.

Reasons are:

Same emitter but A60 has 55 mm bezel where C30 has 45mm bezel so less throw.

Upping the drive current from the A60 to C30 to achieve this increase is impossible. I think we are dealing with chinese lumens and lux and that means you can only trust the product when there is someone who reviews their impresssions of the C30

When I placed an order for the A60 at B.O.B they took my money and then a couple days later credited my paypal back without telling me why and it took me another day or two for them to reply to all my emails on why this was done… So make sure it’s in stock…

bestofferbuy have a 10% off coupon: BOB10

So the A60 is only $13.14 from there.

I only skimmed this thread before I posted the above, so I didn’t notice the comments about BOB being out of stock. What a bummer, especially since I just placed an order there myself.

Please let us know about your experience with colorapple, they come up alarmingly regularly on google shopping searches, I’ve just never seen anyone have a buying experience with them yet, thanks for taking one for the team. :bigsmile:

Did it ship yet? Just trying to get a sense of the service with these people.

Received the following email from Bestofferbuy today:

I see things have not changed with B.O.B, makes me wonder if they ever had this light at all. Not a good way to treat first time buyers or to get more buyers…
they get an AVOID rating……

Exactly. It was indeed my first order with them, and I wont try to shop there again. Who wants to order from a site that offers up products they don’t have in stock, haven’t had in stock for quite some time, and don’t expect to have in stock anytime soon, if ever? I mean, how hard is it to remove a listing in such circumstances?

It’s absurd.

This is exactly what happen to me from them and this was 3-6 months ago, like they couldn’t have stocked them by now or remove the listing like you said. They probably never had them to begin with…

Best offer buy have cancelled three or four eBay bids of mine a day before they end, I suspect they did not want to sell at the price I was winning at and got upset no one else bid. Definitely a company to avoid.

I went to order from colorapples a couple of days ago only to discover that there was no “add to cart” button in the listing, so I figured you must have bought the last one. Guess not.

All of this nonsense made me think that the A60 might be disappearing for good, and I really want one, so DX it is.

Hope you have better luck than I did with DX Cainn, I bought a $50 torch off them, it arrived DOA, they ignored every email I sent them, it took Paypal to make them refund the money.

I’m not too concerned about such things in this case as I’m planning to mod the A60 anyway. As long as it’s physically intact, I’ll be happy enough.

Besides, I’ve had no negative experiences with DX so far. Really pisses me off that you can’t change many of your own account details though, such as your email address and nick name. It’s retarded.

Just a heads up. I ordered 3 of these on 09 Sep. from DX.com As history shows that the prudent buyer only has 1 or 2 items per order i ordered them seperately. On 11 Sep I have all 3 items shipped form them. So apparently they have them in stock. Just FYI. Smile

I ordered my Jacob A60 from DX about 3 weeks ago and they shipped it out 3 days after I placed my order and I received it early this week.

Don’t worry megabeam. DX still pay the price for their often sub-par customer service, and a last resort purchase from you wont change the fact that they’ll have to lift their game across the board to win back many of the regular customers they once had.
