on that front. Not that I don't appreciate quick shipping, but you know, just saying, our world these days just seems to be
so impatient. wink.gif
I dont mind the wait, but they give conflicting messages. On one hand, so do they reduce options to speed up production time, and on the other hand so do they find more resellers.
Yes, we might end up with shorter production time per case, but with more cases being ordered, so will the que be longer.

But only time will tell what the resault will be.

Hey Caselab, could you give me the ballpark pricing on shipping alone for any cases to PEI, Canada?

You can do that via the website by putting together a cart.

Congratulations on the deal with MicroCenter

No warm and fuzzies here in regard to the brand exclusivity but that's me as an individual consumer. I can see how it's better for the business and a larger consumer base

The reduction in SKUs is more of a concern to me. Customization is a critical component of the CL brand. The customization options are what made Case Labs stick in my mind when I first visited the site. Is it possible Case Labs could release technical drawings of all the discontinued parts so your existing (& loyal) customers can still achieve the level of customization we expected upon purchase?

I understand its a reduction temporarily. Just for them to keep up with orders and get acceptable order time (whichever that might be to them).

Once they catch up and got the processing time on a reasonable level - then they'll open the options again.

Unless the company were to move, invest a couple of million into new machines and hire 10 more fabricators, what we've been doing wouldn't work any longer. All chassis are fabricated by people utilizing various machines, not giant stamping machines in a factory.

Ironsmack I hope you're right and this isn't wishful thinking & interpretation. The way I read the text is that CL as a business is going to focus on streamlining production through the reduction in SKUs (I'm thinking/worrying say 4 different tops for the S8 for example), at best until they can reach some long term goal that could be quite some time out (investing millions and doubling? the workforce). I imagine XNine isn't sending these statements to their legal team for clarity but from that text I'd just like to make sure CL is aware of (at least my) our insistence on maintaining the many many SKUs/options they offer today, not just the temporary color hold.

Speaking of which - CL come with standoffs? If not what thread so I can order in advance? I never seem to have enough! smile.gif

I think you're reading WAY too far into it. It's all about eliminating the old and items that don't sell much anymore. The entire philosophy behind the company is modular chassis, and that won't change. We've already reduced SKUs before by eliminating items like the two TX10 models (combining their features in to one) and the SM5, SMH10, etc, etc,etc. Every company has products that go through revisions or EOL altogether.

Besides, Gemini needs to come some time, right?
