Your 2nd statement is as much blindly labling something as the 1st sentence.

You know how many units GMG has sold with WifI, you know how many have had issues? Of course you don't, so you have no idea if it is .0001% failure rate or 50%...Enjoy your Yoder...sell, give away or let a family member use the GMG, I guarantee they will enjoy it! Move on Dude!

You are right, sometimes you just have to call a Spade a Spade!

and there are insanely large amounts of reports on the internet of dissatisfied customers who have clearly demonstrated that it doesnt "just work" for them.

Sometimes you have to stand up and call a spade a spade, even if it is the unpopular thing to say.

Again, you prove my point for me. So its ok for you and others to make sweeping statements about the excellent features and function levels of a product, and when someone makes a similarly sweeping statement to the opposite, you say thats wrong. Sorry, but there is a word for that kind of behaviour.

And yes, I dont have statistics on sales vs faulty controllers, but in my opinion there are too many reports of these issues in other forums, and on facebook user groups. Thats not the worst thing though. The absolute worst thing about all of this is the constant approach to anyone who says they have an issue being told its their fault and never the fault of the product. An even slightly cynical person would equate that behaviour with trying to protect future sales of the product, especially where this behaviour is coming from people who are selling products.

I was happy to let this thread die, but if you want to keep dredging it up and keep telling me how I as the customer am wrong, feel free, but its a really flawed business model.

Spade = spade

Im not disgruntled at all mate, GMG/Hark fixed the issues I had and Ive been happily cooking on it since. Its a nice unit, and I will keep using it until the Yoder arrives, and probably after the Yoder arrives as well. I just take issue with salesmen and fanboys telling me the problem is mine, and not the manufacturer's, which I (and many others) have proven time and time again to be incorrect.

When were you told the problem was yours? As far as I can see all anyone tried to do was help you find a solution.

When I was told that it was an apple issue and android worked fine. Anyway, Ive proven that it was a (multiple) controller issue, its been fixed replaced and is now working, lets move on before we upset anyone further or incite the mod-hammer.

Fair enough, I take a man at his word till he proves otherwise! I have edited my previous statements to reflect that!
