Oh yeah, we never got that discount either.It was announced that the Cerebra would be shipped first week of May. Today is May 10th and nothing had been shipped. The fact is Vertex has been saying we are so close for so long it’s a joke! Look at the date of an email from Vertex.
At this point assuming they ever even ship it they ought to just give all of you like a $500 additional credit to use on any other vertex gear you want. It really amazes me that there are still people standing behind them on this at all. I understand some of them are friends with the owner but to be honest if I was friends with the owner after this Fiasco I wouldn't be any more lol. On the bright side I think there's a reasonable chance that they might get this launched before the new 2020 Apex comes out in 2021. [emoji41]Oh yeah, we never got that discount either.
It was never made available. Now they’re writing the discount will be after the Cerebra ships and not when it ships. What a joke. They could have honored the discount anytime in the last 3 years.When we were told about this discount, didn't they basically put a 25% discount on everything that we as beta testers could apply it agaist and made it available to everyone?
Yeah and even though BRS sold it as a beta so people really shouldn't be mad at them for any reason I bet you it still will keep them from ever carrying EKoral, Fishbit, Reefangel, etc. Till they've been out a few years until they've been out a few years and have an established track record. Which is going to lessen the chances that one of them will actually make it a few years and get an established track record.This was a kickstarter con job and Vertex and the companies that sold this product should be ashamed. There’s no way Vertex didn’t know they were taking the money and dumping the hardware just a few months after the program started. A Vertex employee posted that he/she knew this a long time before the dump was announced. This is a fail, and Jason the CEO of Vertex should be ashamed of what he did to those that bought into the lies about what state this product was at and what it could do. BRS sold it as a beta. It wasn’t a beta. Aquarium Specialty sold this as a functioning unit for early adopters. The hardware was guaranteed as finished. Claims were made about cloud functionality; there was none. Most people’s units couldn’t even function with the basics.
As much as I would like this to be true, I really doubt it, lol.LOL, Terence releasing Trident just to beat Vertex Cerebra to market is hilarious
Mega troll job
Hahaha, ya, like that went into the equation. You guys crack me up.
As much as I would like this to be true, I really doubt it, lol.
The fight among controllers is between Neptune and GHL. GHL released info the Ion Director, which measures Ca and Mg, that im sure pushed Neptune’s release to a point.
The Cerebra has lost any of its credibility with this fiasco, and although I think it will come out after years of fooling everyone harmed in the process, it will measure basics of controlling for years to come, which is old news in 2019.
Competition is what we all hope for, after all this makes things better for us, but this Cerebra proved to be a big flag how companies can screw you selling something short of what it promised, keep you money and fold you for years like its no big deal.
Yeah BRS does such a great job, and their motto seems to be we carry only trusted products we’ve used. Just seems for whatever reason this product had no vetting from BRS for whatever reason. BRS definitely seemed to back away from the product. But even as the beta it was sold as hardware complete. The fact that the product failed isn’t most of my problem. The anger comes from the fact that Vertex lied about this product while it was being sold. That’s one. But the really big one is that they continuously lied to everyone on the Cerebra forums that bought this product and in their marketing to the public. Not just once, but over and over and over for years. You just can’t believe anything they write. Why would people not be critical of them? Or trust them? Or want to use their products? Or purchase them? There was this huge thing in the forums where Jason sent a message and couldn’t even post it himself. It was supposed to be a quasi apology that wasn’t really an apology. It basically said what we are trying to do is difficult. Why all the lies and umpteen false release dates. Just tell the truth for once. They should have said in 2016 we messed up it will be a few years. They set all the communication and lack of communication . When the forum gets upset, Jason just fires the front man or the front man leaves. They’re down to a skeleton staff and went back to lying and pulled a 3 year promise of a 25% discount on all Vertex items when Cerebra ships. Now that discount is pushed forward to a “future” date. Nobody is on the forums. And nobody seems to have any kind of expectations for this product even if something is delivered.Yeah and even though BRS sold it as a beta so people really shouldn't be mad at them for any reason I bet you it still will keep them from ever carrying EKoral, Fishbit, Reefangel, etc. Till they've been out a few years until they've been out a few years and have an established track record.
