Has anyone recieved any higher capacity replays (eg 5160) on the trade in program? I wonder whether they will have to add a drive to a 5040 since I don't see any 5160's for sale on their web page. I sent my receipts in Aug have a rma ups to send the 4160 back in. I know it is set up for a cross shipment. I'm emailed them for an update-response is should be shipped shortly.

I've been calling twice a week since the beginning. My guess is that they don't have any 5160's. Supposedly they will be shipping in a week or so, but your guess is as good as mine. Basically, they ran out of 5160's and aren't telling anyone really what is going on. My CC was charged 4 weeks ago and nothing has shipped...


Of course, you really can't complain since RTV is doing us such a huge favor.


So it goes...

I am also waiting for two 5160's as a trade in for my 4532. Every time I call in I get the same story about the 5160 being delayed. One thing is they finally charged my credit card the $370 on Sept 25th so hopefully I will get the 5160's soon.


As a side note, does anyone know if lifetime service will stay activated on my old 4532 unit? What I am trying to decide is if it is worth it to eat the $370 and keep all 3 units or if I should send the 4532 back. I am trying to figure out which way I can make the most on ebay.

Huh? I don't think you can keep it... this is supposed to be a trade up/down program, not 'get one at a good price'. The CC charge is the incentive to send the old one back.


Read this again... http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/connect/ In any case, can you really sell the 4500 for more than $370?!

Sure I can keep the old unit. The $370 is why I can keep the old unit. My question was on the details.


As for what I can get for the 4532, I can get way more than $370 for it on ebay, as long as the lifetime service is still intact. A 5160 unit with lifetime service also goes for a lot more than $370 on ebay.

Not the way I read it, but, okay, sounds like a winner for you, $$-wise!

I seriously doubt that they would keep the activation on your old unit. Besides, that would really be taking advantage of the program. I mean, DNNA is really going out of it's way to make things right and you are going to try to take advantage of them? It's that kind of stuff that ruins deals like this for everyone else...

Hundred's of years ago there were sheep farmers in England. Each farmer had some land for grazing, but there was also common land from which everyone could take. So many farmers took advantage of this and only grazed their sheep in the "commons". After a short while the "commons" were ruined and no one could enjoy it. Today we know this as the "tragedy of the commons".


I see the same thing happening today with people buying things only from the web avoiding local sales tax and with big-box companies such as Walmart that provide low prices on goods yet shrug off health benefits leaving it up to the state to pay for it. In both cases the "commons" is the government (the collective people of the state), and the tragedy is government debt.


Of course, you are probably free to do what you want, but in the end you are probably screwing us all. Thanks.


Cheers

IMO, the $370 keeps me from "screwing" everyone else who participates in this program. Ofcourse, since there doesn't seem to be any guarantee that lifetime will stay activate on my 4532, I'll probably just return it and then sell one of the 5160's on ebay.

Guess I don't really know, but I want this to go smoothly from DNNA's perspective since they are going out on a limb for us. They could have easily said tough luck--4k5k just won't work.


I'm in the same position you are; I have a 4320 that I'm trading in for two 5160's. I have considered all my options and I think that if you want to sell anything, sell the 5160 (as you suggested).


Cheers

Has anyone trading in a 4532 been told they are getting a 5320 instead of two 5160s?

They told me that they do not have 320 hour versions of the 5k's. I'd prefer to have two units over one anyway, but that's me.

Well, I have to agree. But I recall Replay Lyndon indicating there was a limited number of 5320s and I was just wondering if anyone either got one or was told they were going to get one.

Hm, got a link to anything about the 5320 being in this program? Since they never sold a 5320, I'd be surprised to see a 5320 in the tradeup pipeline! :)

I would also be a little peeved if I got a 5320 instead of two 5160's, as I am planning to sell one on ebay. I suppose shipping me a 5320 would be within their right but I would not be happy.
