I think a double box with shrink wrap should be sufficient.

It clearly wasn't in this case.
Though you may well be right, and this kind of puncture damage is a one-off occurrence.
I'd still maintain that there ought to be inserts between the inner and outer boxes.

If you log on Hyperion Support forum, and go to the memberslist:

http://forum.hyperion-entertainment.biz/memberlist.php

You'll see all members on the forum. Users who are betatesters (Any platform I guess) - has an ICON "BETATESTER" - I can count more than 100, but we don't know if they are X1000 betatesters or just "plain" betatesters

@raumfahre

There was some additional cardboard in the cavity between boxes. However, we have found by experience that conversely if you pack the cavity too tightly, you can get the opposite effect: as packages get pushed together in transit, the cavity packaging itself can push against the product and cause damage.

Standard polystyrene inserts in the cavity between boxes would not have helped much in this case anyway, as the pictures reveal that all the boxes and plastic packaging were breached straight through by the object that punctured them.

The larger the box is made in volume, the greater the shipping costs because couriers charge by volumetric shipping. Therefore it is a balance between getting the correct protection with an acceptable shipping cost for the customer.

For all the folks inquiring about additional production and distribution of AmigaOne X1000, could you verify this?

Thanks for the videos.

How do you experience the AmigaOS that comes with it?
Is it stable? Or does it hangs occasionally?

It's not Amigakit's fault if the Fedex staff were doing javelin practice at the warehouse.

@Rob

As an ex mail employee, I personally would not use FedEx.

UPS has a more electronic automated sorting system and my recent dealing with UPS has been very satisfactory.

Maybe AmigaKit should consider switching to UPS.

The AmigaOne X1000 system is looking very nice, what is final price we are talking about for second 'run' ?

From the link I offered in post #46 of this thread, I would say the user interpreted the meaning to be what he wanted it to be. How do you read it?

And my experience as an end customer has been that UPS is utter crap. Within the USA, UPS is fine and do a good job at a reasonable price. Just don't try to use them to send shipments outside the US border.

UPS hide fees, charge you insane brokerage and require way more documentation than is required when shipping to/from Canada and I do not recommend UPS for anything outside the USA.

I've been using FedEx for years for international shipments and they have been rock solid. Easy paperwork, reasonable brokerage fees (free is pretty reasonable), very fast and useful employees at the counter. FedEx Ground on the other hand.. well, I would recommend UPS over FedEx Ground.

Sorry to see the damage to the case. That simply isn't anywhere near good enough packaging by AmigaKit. For international shipping, the case box should be inside another box with plenty of packing.


Mine was very well packed, boxes within boxes.

Thanks all for your kind words!

I am surprised though how no one here has remarked how well, on live unedited video, I handled the dent.

I think I was nice and smooth, said ah crap, nice dent, will contact AmigaKit, and basically not worry about it and not let it affect my good mood opening the new system.

I think I was still real cheerful even after that and continued filming.

I have heard good things about AmigaKit and have over the last 2 years made purchases with them, this X1000 being the big purchase.

So I feel confident if Fed/X does not take care of it, AmigaKit will.

As long as they insured the package and all that, and I have the original boxes and packing showing where the impact of some sharp enough object went through not one but two boxes, then hitting the case with enough force to put a nice dent in it lifting some of the black paint away, we should be good.

I immediately emailed them pictures of the case, and both boxes of where I believe it was punctured, and they have turned in their claim I guess. So I am just awaiting word what is next.

I am still very excited to have the X1000, read the owners manual last night along with the technical manual on the X1000 board, and already have the X1000 on the Internet, working at the full 1920 x 1080 rez, and downloaded OWB-MUI.

The only thing I need to explore more is my monitor can do up top 120hz for video but noticed the settings in my screenmodes only shows something like 67hz or something. There was one that showed at 120 but it did not work so not sure about that. Maybe that is only if I use a HDMI but DVI needs lower? Not sure.

@amigasociety

I'm not sure the 120Hz your monitor can do is for the input signal, rather it filling every second frame based on the surrounding two frames as HD TVs tend to do these days. The incoming signal is still 60Hz in those cases, which is a normal refresh rate for a computer driving a monitor... I wouldn't worry about that at all, it doesn't really mean much on a flat panel display anyway.
