    ANND the LIX pen arrives !

    Yep, LIX has finally started a few deliveries. Out of the 500 "stated as available", it seems a fraction were sent to US backers.

    This is such a success that a week after the 1st delivery they have published an update requesting feedback on their support email.

    After a few days of mixed reviews, a backer summed it up quite well : "An amazing 58% failure rate ending the "there was a problem, but we fixed it" fairytale."

    For a 800000£ project over a year late : good job LIX. Let's see if the follow-up wil solve this and make it worth the backers' while ... -or anyone's really-.

    Did you back them? i.e are you waiting for a LIX pen or has it arrived?

    Not received yet, no. I'm hoping that not receiving it opens somehow the chance that perhaps they'll solve the problems in the new batch and so remove this 50% failure chance in the one I may eventually receive.

    In other words : I've mourned, I don't expect much from them. This was also an eye opener on KS policies for me.

    AAANNNDD no it doesn't arrive anymore.

    The 50 or so they seem to have delivered to backers and reviewers were a failure with an extremely low functioning rate.

    Now 1 month without answers it's quite obvious they are bust.

    However their website is still up so if you ever are tempted to go for their product ... don't.
