    Default Feeler for Eightonlight XMass Special GB

    Curious if anyone is interested in hosting and grouping together to legally import some projectors from Eightonlight while they run their Christmas Special?

    Might get a few takers if you post some details about this "Christmas Special"...

    I don't really see this as a groupbuy opportunity. The prices aren't going to be lower by teaming up. Omar said there basically is no profit on these already and there will only be a limited supply available. Even when there had been a "groupbuy" everyone has still paid and dealt with shipping on an individual basis. The only thing the previous groupbuys did was facilitate a lower price as long as a certain amount were sold.

    I'm considering one of the AT-X 12 watt units but, really need to think long and hard about where the funds are coming from.

    do you REALLY need to eat ?


    Bradley jay , ? have a you a achieved a further discount ? off xmas prices to merit a group buy ? .... maybe simpler to just ask if you can get a further photonlexicon discount or boosted power or a free gift for members ordering by a certain date ... its always worth asking !

    I have informed Melody of the interest in a potential Group Buy and pointed her to here to disclose any pricing inquiries.

    I inquired about volume discounts, and Melody replied she can't go lower than the Christmas Specials. Looks like there is no point for any sort of group buy for a volume discount... For anyone curious, here is what I was quoted. I'm eyeing a pair of Venus II's ATM...

    I have to say to prices are rather nice. Can you post some images of the units guts. Would be real nice if the blue was 462nm. It would be almost like the old hene argon in color.

    They all say 445nm in the description above.

    You are using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain.

    A few months back, Lighspace quoted me that they could upgrade 445 to 462 for $100.
