Down at the bottom of the story, click on the "its happened before" link.
I have zero problem with any skeptics on the Elio. Its fair... The thing is, I dont care. My eyes are wide open...

My wife pissed away $60,000 on a movie that was gonna make us rich. It never made a single frame let alone a dollar.

I have $1000 in on this. If it works, I am gonna have a cool rig. If it doesnt, oh well. No I cant afford that $1k very often, but my risk is limited, and done with my eyes wide open.

Plan for the worst, hope for the best!

Best wishes!

60 grand!!! Yikes. In your situation, I would risk the $1000 too. Hope it works out.
I signed up 3 or 4 years ago for their newsletter emails because it look interesting. Maybe, IF they make a go of it, I might have to pay full retail.

And if you do, you will get one with the bugs worked out, so maybe you are the smart one, not me! ahahaha
