Preface and Terms
This is a group buy which brings new concepts and products to the community. Orders are taken beforehand and then submitted to the vendor as a whole, allowing the factories to do a single run of components, making the product available for purchase without any extreme upfront costs and stocking.
The group buy will be run as close to schedule as possible, but delays are possible if any issues in production occur. Orders can be changed and canceled during the ordering period, but after the bulk order is submitted to the vendor, orders may not be changed or canceled. Understand that because of the nature of a group buy, there may be the unlikely chance of superficial changes to product specifications (i.e. screw color, SMD component spec, etc...) that will never hinder or affect functionality of the product in any way. By joining this group buy, you understand all stated above in the preface and terms.
