  1. A shame its only Zen2 Lucienne and not the Zen3 Cezanne. (Which were both released this January.)

  2. For 6 months Gigabyte has been destroying customer comfidence in their product by advertising the existence of these products on their website, and publishing links to their distribution partners, meanwhile none of their partners having a single unit or even the ability to pre-order them.

    That’s not even a paper launch. That’s straight up false advertising, wasting their customers’ time over and over. If that’s how they treat their customers before we’ve even made a purchase, I hold little hope for how they will treat us after they have our money.

    Avoid.

    1. I thought it was just me being in Canada that resulted in never finding those in stock.

      Whenever companies like Asus and Gigabyte launch Mini PCs with things like “were going to have a model with this feature, and a few more models with another feature”, I always wish they were just more realistic and focus on just getting the primary model in stock.

      Theres been several times that I’ve wanted a specific Gigabyte Brix model, but I’ve ended up buying something else because they just don’t seem to exist.
