Hello Felix, Hello Rhain,
I will have this discussion internally again about the EARLY BIRD backers. Please do not forget that you still get a 2 year warranty ($100 value) and free shipping if you are inside the US. So there is still a huge benefit for early backers. Also, you now get a ONE with 1TB for $399, so it is another $100 discount.
Regarding the “ugrade fee” for backers who got a discount: It is not always $50. It is $20 if you came in at the $379 level, or $25 if you got a $25 discount. It is simply the difference to the original price.
Hey D Thompson,
sorry, auto-correction sometimes yields funny results. Of course we mean “backer” and not “baker” (-:
the EARLY BIRD specials had a 2-year warranty included as well (and free shipping if you are in the US).
you will be able to upgrade to the 2.5TB or to one of the USB solutions.
