    Hi all,

    I trust you and your family are doing well apart from anxiously waiting upon arrival of the aluminum parts. Especially in these uncertain times and for some of us being home bound. Unfortunately, the manufacturer also seems to be struggling as I received the following message yesterday:

    Following up here- my sincere apologies, the anodizing process went wrong so we are experiencing a further delay to fix that. The order be shipped by the 27th of March.

    This means yet another delay, which I'm also very sorry to report to you.


    @tekk:
    Please follow this tread for updates on upcoming rounds, but I will probably also send everyone that have indicated their interest a PM upon starting a third round.

    Hi all,

    Almost all parts fits perfectly and only the power button needs some attention. You'll need to file some very minute part of either the button or the front itself, especially in the corners. These are not "square" enough, with rounded edges. The probable reason is that there is some margin in the CNC cutting. In the aluminum colored front, I've filed the front panel so the power button is in it's normal position. In the black version, the front will still need some filing and this is the max position of the power button.

    Please find an impression of the metal parts as received:

    A difference in "shine" is noticeable where the front is more "brushed" while the drive cover parts are more "pitted" and "shiny". The difference is the right pictures showing the 3.5" drive covers is exaggerated due to the photograph, in real life it is not that bad but still noticeable. It depends on how the light falls on the object as also can be seen in the far most left picture. On the black items, there is some dust (maybe the room needs some vacuum cleaning ).
    Nonetheless, I have filed a complaint with the request if they could remake these parts.

    The most disturbing part is that there are some very tiny holes on the left and right of the lower 3,5" cover. Here the hole on the backside (for the mounting screws) is too deep. Again the allowed margins were here too large and we ran out of material.

    Wow, amazing, and the black one looks even more amazing! In the end did you order a black batch as well PRS? In case you did, I would be interested in the black version too! Or is it just a prototype?

    Hi tbtorro,

    I missed the fact that you also were interested in a black version. Did you want to exchange color or have an additional one in black as well.
    I have ordered a small batch of black, including one for myself and would consider selling that one too. I've already one bare aluminium from the previous round and only one A4000 as I've sold my spare a couple of weeks ago.
