Obviously the device is NOT yet officially available. (Be very wary if considering purchasing from such sources, especially Ebay!!!)

Wait for the official release date & only purchase from an official reseller when that time comes.

I have just visited this seller's site. I have asked the question....how did he obtain these before the official release date and have forwarded details of this site to John at minix. The price on this site has now climbed to 302 usd.

Did they respond ?

As I'm sure you've read...... buying one prior to the official release by MINIX would be a mistake!

For the sake of a month it's not worth the risk.

Hopefully others don't get sucked in and MINIX can prevent this from happening again in the future.... this isn't the first time it's happened, unfortunately.

Hi

No reply yet. I just felt it was important to let John know. I will never buy from Ebay.......I have waited long enough for the U22 and a few more weeks will be worth it. Hopefully John can unravel this and prevent others from making a possible mistake in buying from an unofficial source.

More than likely they won't reply!

I'm sure John appreciates you passing the info along!:)

Got a reply. Forwarded it to John@minix.
This guy on Ebay claims it is a genuine product.
But I will wait for official stores.
The box maybe legit but I'm certain it will have pre-release firmeware which will not be suitable for the general public.

Hi Ralf,
An obvious problem I can foresee is that no matter what way they found to get hold of the product, you are buying an unfinnished product. I am not even questioning if the price you paid is equal or inferior or superior to the final product, but in what I am concerned, should you have any chrisis with the new box you might come here trying to solve it and very likely we will have no idea what you will be talking about.

But I am sure we will probably give it a try...

Please allow me to add an extra remark.

When you buy an unfinnished product you can't tell what part was unfinnished. Was it software, was it hardware?
There must surelly be a reason why the product is still not being officially sold.

You might believe it is something related to software, and that in future updates your machine will be just like any other, yet you should keep it mind that it might well be something slightly worse. If the reason is hardware, no matter what updates you throw in, your machine will never be like the ones approved for releasing.

Keep in mind that the products being already sold in unofficial shops, if they were not subtracted from the production line, they were probably supplied for evaluation to someone that was aware, opposite to your final consumer convictions, that they were getting hold of a product that is very likely to be far from what should be expected by you.

These, lets call them testers, don't intend to keep the produtct as you do, because they will get the final version for sure, in time.

So, please follow the advicing given so far, and be patient. The wainting is for our own good.
