If everybody already got emails from the good folks at DD saying their lights have shipped, why does it matter if their names are on a list. They took your money right?

Semur, can you clarify if the list above is just an informal reminder of who ordered, or the actual list of lights shipping out?

I also realize some members are displeased they don't qualify for every promo under the sun and have taken to petty retaliation in hopes that ruining things even a little bit for everyone else will somehow assuage their displeasure. However, I would recommend that they reconsider their behavior, because this forum isn't better served by alienating vendors who are at least trying to reach out to the community, even if they're not doing it in the most business savvy way.

If the above is referring to my post, I simply asked what the reason for the list was. I'm just reading the thread and asking a question. To be accused of petty retaliation and ruining things for everyone is a little insulting. I asked why is there a list that everyone must get their names on if the lights have shipped as DD reported in emails. Read my post. If the above was not directed at my post then my bad and carry on.

It's just a general comment about rather transparent behavior that you've also no doubt observe go on elsewhere. The prior promo wasn't all that well planned and it's understandable that some members were peeved, even though they've suffered no loss except perhaps their expectations. Since fixing problems after the fact is clearly not the best idea, so I just wanted to clarify things ahead of time. Hopefully everything goes well the rest of the way and everyone is happy with their group buy promo purchase.

Semur, can you give an updated status on the shipping for the remaining orders?  It's been almost 3 business days and I have not seen any shipping notice from dinodirect.

About 70 orders have been sent out. And since there were too many headlamps we purchased from the factory, they did not have enough boxes to pack the lamps. But please do not worry, they will be sent out soon after our test.

Today I get a picture of my purchase. I had hope to get one in a nice package (looks better if you give it someone as a gift), but the picture shows only the product flimsy foil Frown

Light up the darkness.

I got an e-mail TODAY from DD. My order has shipped!!!! Break out the champagne! I paid for it on the 20th and it shipped today! Hoo-yah! Happy camper here! Shouldn't be long now, right? Right? I'm waiting at my door. I ordered two of them so I'm doubly excited. Hey, maybe that's why it took 8 days to ship cuz I ordered two. If I ordered one maybe it would only have been 4 days to ship?

 

elated...  Smile

I hope you are not right on the units ordered to ship time ratio....  I'd love to get an email saying that my order has shipped.

Mine was delivered today.

I'm very impressed. Comes with nice presentation box containing the torch and the headband.

Bright, floody beam, ramping works well if a little fast, it goes dim enough to be able to look directly into the led. The magnet in the base is strong enough to hold it at any angle. It seems very well made. Only tried with a LSD NiMh so far, I have some 14500s here but might just let someone else try that first  Wink

So, my first purchase from DinoDirect is a resounding success, thank you Semur. And cheers for the little bag of crystal mud, the missus loves that stuff.

I look forward to seeing if everyone else gets the same thing.

I guess for those who missed the short 2-day sale, we can only hope that they follow this up on the XP-G version, though that one is only 16340 and 17670-compatible. I've concluded that 14500/AA size is ideal for most headlamp use.

 

If they are making money on this deal, you'd think they'd want as many people to participate. It's quite obvious now that many of us have known about the Ultrafire headlamps, and have not gotten one, but would at the right price. Headlamps are a really underserved area here--and obviously, the demand is there. Current headlamps are either too cheesy, or rather pricey. With as many quite decent cheap handheld flashlights as there are out there, you'd think there would be more compelling options with headlamps.

Dang. At least you got in on the deal. You got one of the best "high end budget" headlamps for half the normal price, you should be grateful if it comes only in bubble wrap and works properly. Every single budget light I've ever gotten, with the exception of Solarforce bodies, have come with no formal packaging, no matter where I've gotten them from, even other Ultrafire products. Someone who really wanted an H2 would probably be keeping it anyway, rather than giving it away to someone who probably wouldn't appreciate it nor use it as much. Gift giving often involves trying to get the recipient to think you spent more on something than you really did, and that's one thing I really dislike about the practice. I say if you want to show a person you care through money, then spend the money. If you got it for you, enjoy the light!

 

When you buy a hard drive, do you buy bulk/"oem" versions if they're cheaper, or do you pay extra just so you can get a package to take apart with instructions you don't need? That was the mother of all headlamp deals to come along so far, as far as I'm concerned. I'd like to see Zebralight come in here and do something like that, but I'm sure they won't. Heh, I'd be happy if they just acknowledged our forum--but to my knowledge, they haven't, even though their products come up regularly here. Hasn't given me any extra incentive to buy from ZL (nothing against them though). Especially since I'm slowly learning to mod my own stuff, thanks in large part to this forum.

I've just received UF-H2b safely this afternoon..seem to be good quality after external inspection. I'm testing with ni-MH after 15 mins and felt very warm....I'll test more tomorrow...:-)  

Thanks Semur for this promotion...
