I agree with other VP50 owners that this is really a slap in the face
First of, I liked my iScan+ and now my VP50. It does wonders to picture quality. But...
It doesn't work as advertised. All the bugs, still remaining in the VP50, doesn't get fixed because DVDO's resources is used on the new VP50PRO. Great.
And all the usual trade-ins and money back plans etc. etc. that aren't really useful for International customers are just another way of getting some more money out of us who already paid a lot for the VP50.
It's actually around 5000$ for the VP50 in my country. For some of us that's a lot of money for a product that still doesn't work as advertised.
And then the usual suspects come out and tell us how great the new deal is and pad each others back failing to mention the bugs (that history tells us there are in all new DVDO products). The NDA only allows positive feedback to slip out and then when all of us are lured in and upgrade, the bugs appear.
I hope my criticism doesn't get moderated away... again.
I just feel it's unfair to pay a minimum of 2000$ (International customers) for bug fixes to a product I've already paid for once (yes there are some new features, but that doesn't justify it).
