    Instructions were given for the exchange process with hints of new news in the coming days.
    Those that own beta units have to register for a replacement if they haven’t already and then send in their PCBs from the head units to exchange for the new V7 (a headunit, lcd screen, powerbar, temp probe and all necessary cables)
    Extra power bars will be dealt with in the same way. Register, send in the PCB and get a replacement.
    As for extra Multibars, that’s being determined now. Presumably that will be handled like the powerbars. There are no longer “multibars” as the BNC connectors, usb, hdmi ports, etc are all on the head unit now.
    After the first batch of 80 are shipped the first week of May, the ship date for the second batch will be announced.
    We have arrived! I’m stoked! And hope at least one of my units will be in the first batch of 80.
    Reviews by BRS, Marine Depot and Reefbuilders are presumed to be in the next month or so.

    Finally at the end of our long journey. I'm going to miss ******* and moaning on the cerebra beta forums. :(

    I'm in the queue for the new Vertex controller ship. If it's half as good it promises to be then it will have been worth the wait.

    Well, you're assuming the thing will work. ;)

    I do not recall seeing how long between the first batch of 80 being released and the next set will be.

    I'm one of the 80. They haven't settled on a ship date yet, but when we receive ours I'll be sure to post a review.

    Grats and good luck, I know it's been a long time and patient waiting. I hope all works great. I wanna see this work, competition creates better products for us consumers.

    So Anybody got one yet since the first week of May is gone? or even a tracking number to know that they at least shipped it?

    They just reached out to confirm our addresses. Sounds like they're shipping next week?

    Well the Trident has been released as of 12 a.m. this morning depending on your time zone. I think it's sold out online pretty much everywhere already but you can still get it from some local fish stores but regardless it's been released. got your cerebra yet? Or even a tracking number where they've shipped it like they said they would?

    Dang. You really shoulda taken that bet. Ha!

    Sorry it’s kept you up at night waiting to Zing me. Congrats. ;)

    In all non-snarkiness though, I’m glad the Trident is out and I’m glad the Cerebras are on the way (tracking has been emailed to some as of yesterday). Better technology helps us all. And it’s easy to play armchair quarterback. I wish them all the best of luck. I can’t imagine the stress the people in charge of these products have been under.

    Yeah but he was cutting it really close. If Trident testing would have went on for another two or three months before release the cerebra might possibly have made it out first... But probably not lol

    I haven’t gotten mine either. I can’t remember if I saw it on the FB group or the forum.
