IMHO - the problem is the consumer AND the manufacturer. The manufacturer created a sensation with information leaking long before release - and the consumer bought the hype. There is no emergency to get a Trident. LOL its completely insane. It is not gold. It will not cure cancer. It will do something you can already do. I actually kick back and say - if/when I get one - great - if not - I'm doing fine without one. Thats the problem with creating this 'artificial' demand IMHO - people will realize - wait why am I so focused on the 'fear of missing out' when in reality im doing fine without one. The trident is not a necessity for anyone - its a luxury for everyone. Again just MHOHere is the thing though... Neptune knew the hype, interest, and demand. They should have learned their lesson from the the 2016 Apex launch. Instead of being prepared for a smooth launch, retailers are being punched in the face for Neptune's inability to logistics. I will caveat a point that there may be a high reject rate at the assembly/testing point, but that should have been worked out leading up to launch.
I mean as of yet - there is no data that tanks with a trident do better than those with a bubble magic doser and a weekly alkalinity test. Frankly - I'm surprised that they are still advertising '9 cents/test'..... When the only reason for 2/3 of those tests is to keep the machine running properly. This is the sticking point I have about this device. (Though I'm on the list)
