Ok, I've found a review of this exact light:

 

http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?310856-Flood-Beam-Hea...

For the lazy, yes it comes with everything in the other reviews and summarized in the OP Smile

With this light being the really good one I am now sorely disappointed that this buy is not open to everyone on the forum. Had I known the original "gift" would disqualify me from this group buy I never would have accepted it. This is a MUCH better deal and a FANTASTIC light!! You lucky bastages!!! Cry

People who have been on blf for a long time have this light from a former deal .The newer members couldn't get this light then , so maybe this is fair .

I haven't been on the site for a long time and I don't have one. I want one but not at $30.

There is no restriction in unit for newer members like me. Some guys demand more than one. So, i couldn't really realize the exact point of this deal. There could be restriction for one unit and experienced guys can take advantage of this deal also if there is a limited stock. Otherwise 30-17= 13$ X2= 26$ ???? Experienced guys awarded with 8$ gift. While calculation is so obvious can we talk about fairness?

Altough i knew UF H2-H3 is better than Trustfire Z1, i prefered to buy Z1 due to lower price. And now i had an opportunity to have H2. I believe most of guys here did same before. So, i believe Semur, you can arrange this deal to make it more "potential" for your site Smile

 

Why is one fair and the other isn't ? Did people complain when there was a 100 post restriction? Rules that don't change make more sense than changing rules in the middle of the game .

Tell you what...I'll trade you even up. You get my $8 zoomer and I'll take your UF-H2. After all, it is fair, right??

The difference is the first deal was a "Gift", not a group buy and, as such was Semur's discretion to offer. Personally I think it should have been offered to everyone or no one. Kind of like in school when the teacher says you can chew gum as long as you brought enough for the whole class.

Group buys on a forum like this should be available to all members especially when the requirement is that you merely be a member. In reality being a member should be the ONLY requirement when a dealer offers a group buy. If I was Mr Admin I would set this as a standard practice rule.

If you were out shopping at a store, let's say BestBuy, and they offered you a free MP3 player (not an iPod, just a cheap Chinese throwaway player) just for being a regular customer and you said "Hey, nice gesture, thanks!" then a couple days later you open the Sunday paper and see their ad with a special for 1/2 off an iPod touch (latest generation) with no quantity limits and as long as supplies last. You go in and they say, "Sorry, but we gave you a free cheap mp3 player already, you can't have one of these". How would you feel about that? You didn't ask for the free junk mp3 player, they offered it to you. That's pretty much what's happening here.  I'm not a betting man but if I was I'd bet you'd be pretty pissed and would likely take your future business down the street to any one of a dozen of competing stores. Poor business move on BestBuy's part...poor move on DD's part.

Enough of this. I don't want to come across as a complainer...just saying my peace about something that has irritated the hell out of me and others that are less vocal than I.

Peace,
Johnny

makes an excellent point. he probably will buy the light. maybe everyone who really wants it will eventually buy it, and if they have to pay more it probably won't bankrupt them, none the less, he makes an excellent point.

I agree that he does have a good point.

 

So, how do we get this going?  I think we definitely have the required number of people interested.

I'm not eligible (and I already own one) but if I was, I'd happily take a couple.

Anyway, I really just wanted to say thanks to agenthex for his work. Smile

Since many folks have ask the same question, I just wanted to clarify that according to the info from Semur, he/she will provide us with a page to purchase when the group buy period ends. Just before that happens, I'll probably have to tally up the people interested and give the list to DD to ensure eligibility or whatever, so if you replied with intent to buy above (or PMed me) you should be fine for now.

No, wait until the 20th, when the buy period is over. More info will be posted here then.

First of all…

Hello to everybody…

Even if that is my first post, is not the first time that I browse around BLF… (I join BLF time ago)

Now that homework is done is time to say that…

Great question and one that I have considered as well. Seems like well over a 100 YES responses to it ( I haven't counted them). Still more pouring in. People love a great deal. I have seen many sale items on the internet these days where a sale is supposed to be valid until a certain date, only to be sold out immediately as the seller had NO IDEA the response the ad would draw. People have eyes and ears and are ready to pounce.  Sushi
