Why has the EZB4 price jumped from 69 bucks to 99 bucks?
Does it have new features?
Why should I keep recommending EZ Robot to people when you keep increasing prices? You are making me question my recommendations?
Free shipping was already increased from 100 to 200 bucks?
Please tell me whats going on?
I know you have new staff and no sales for a long period!
You should have more communication and respect for your home base.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Experience early access to the latest features and updates. You'll have everything that is needed to unleash your robot's potential.
I respect you very much.
I did not hear the comment that prices would increase?
Where is the communication?
Maybe D.J. can explain why the price increase was moved up from December to October 2nd? Almost 2 months?
Where is the communication?
I support EZB, it has a great product, but it should have better communications and support to its home base.
I am just venting my thoughts. I have spent slightly less than $ 1,000 three kits on EZRobot (direct & indirect purchases).
Maybe I should be quiet.
Look forward to your ICreate EZB4 progress.
We initially pushed out a lower price for the EZ-B and a few other items as a special sale to our current community. Although we didnt openly advertise this sale, it gave the first group of people who ordered a really good deal, which we thought was fair as most of you had been waiting very patiently for the last few months. While we originally wanted to keep the sale longer, we hit the volume goal very quickly,and unfortunately it would be hard to keep those prices and still keep the electricity on!
Thank you for responding Mark, I understand.
But I also agree that it would be great, if you could see how long ez-deals last.
A time-counter in the shop or the mainpage would be great.
I am sure people would buy more if they had that kind of information to plan a bit.
Btw. What is the pricehistory of the ez-b4 + Revolution robots?
Below are just some numbers that I recall so far and some guesses. Didnt have time to check it thoroughly. Atm still at work.
Please correct and help me to get a complete overview. Maybe even from ez-b v1 on ?!
69 USD from 01.10.2013 - 31.12.2013
99 USD since 01.01.2014 ?
ez-b v4 Developter Kit
no special sale
229 USD since 01.10.2013
449 USD from 01.12.2013 - 05.03.2014
499 USD since 05.03.2014
369 USD from 01.12.2013 - 05.03.2014
449 USD since 05.03.2014
249 USD from 01.12.2013 - 05.03.2014
449 USD since 05.03.2014 Attention!: Now 2 X 3 servo Arm with Gripper (69 USD) are included
-> effective raise i 131 USD from 249 USD to 380 USD
Personally I think the Roli was the best priced deal and the best choice for people that are completely new regarding robotics.
Especially since the old package incuded 2x LiPo battery + 2x charger
I am happy that I preorder all 3 robots
Cant wait for them to arrive so I can set my evil plans for worlddomination into motion
Btw. Isnt there some goodie if you got all 3 of them?
Maybe one develeoper kit for spareparts and to build an automated house for them
Btw. is there anyone from Germany or nearby (EU) with a 3d-printer, that can help me out?
I will need a few special parts in the near future.
To be frank, we actually lost money on pre-order prices. The pre-order prices did not include a mark-up for the low volume of units that we would be manufacturing.
So, any of you who pre-ordered - congrats for saving a great deal of money on your orders And thank you very much for your faith in our abilities to create the most amazing robot product in the world! It's so exciting! You'll be receiving pre-orders soon
In May last year I spotted Sparki the Easy Robot on Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/arcbotics/sparki-the-easy-robot-for-everyone?ref=live The cheapest pledge was $99 plus $10 postage outside US. I procrastinated and missed out. Recently I came across an advert for Sparki and checked out the price. It's now $149 and postage to Australia is $40!
BTW an email I got from Ez-Robot on 20 September last year had the following prices: Ez-B V4 $69, Development kit $169, Roli $219, Six $329 and Six $469. I procrastinated for only a couple of weeks and got the development kit for $189. I procrastinated for 5 months and got Roli for just $249. Both fantastic bargains in my book! Even more so when you consider they include postage!
Ez-Robot has issued regular updates of progress and explained delays in a way everybody is able to understand. In addition there was generous compensation given to those who pre-ordered early last year. Most kickstarter project I have pledged to have encountered similar delays. None of them have provided compensation. Few provide satisfactory communication and support?.......don't get me started!
There are always new features that hold my interest in such a great product.
My robot is usually on almost every day.
I cannot believe the advancements in EZ Robot since I started, and I appreciate them.
D.J. and Staff have been excellent in helping everyone along with the great community!
I also very much appreciated the store credit that was given to pre buy customers and used it to add an addition of extra parts to my order.
The printed keychain and Christmas postcard also show EZ Robot is an excellent company.
Thank You EZ Robot,
