I can't find a question from you in my mailbox or on this forum. Can you please reask it? We reply to every email.

May we ask why you are not satisfied with your openSPOT?

We are working on the new product, and we will release the details as soon as we are ready to launch the product.

I have an OpenSpot and love it. Just plug it in and it works. I have many friends that have other "spots" and they are continually talking about how to do this or what they have to do to get something to work.

My OpenSpot just works and I'm looking forward to their new offering and the features it has.

I love my openspot and it has worked fault free for 12 months now, like the concept that it can operate without a PC. I'm looking forward to the next release and will probably get it as soon as it becomes available. By getting everybody excited think how much the guys have saved in advertising costs, makes good business sense to me and to make sure their product is right 1st time. They have always listened and issued updates as and when they are discovered. Keep up the good work guys and looking forward to my second openspot.

Wow! A topic started by a d**k!

I LOVE my Openspot! The product is ROCK SOLID and has always worked for me. The support is excellent and the feature set has been solid. True, there are things other hotspots can do that I would love to see from the Openspot, but that's why we wait for new products to be released.

I sincerely hope the person who started this thread doesn't dissuade others from Openspot. The guys at SharkRF obviously put their blood, sweat and tears into what they're doing. I know the next product will be AWESOME!

I'm just seeing normal frustration levels expressed by customers.
I feel that many questions.. especially feature requests go unresponded to.
If gives the general impression that the developer simly doesn't care
Or does not take an active interest in further development.
I try to be understanding when I can we all have lives and teh dev. may choose not to live here
24/7 like some of us would really want.

I agree with you on many of your points but the way you went about it could have been a lot more constructive.

Trust me, I’ve written many posts just like you did. And I know I can be a d**k as well.

The current Openspot product is quite good. There’s always room for improvement and there have been times I’ve made suggestions to the developer(s) that aren’t considered.

The good thing is that there’s plenty of competition in this space now. I’ve found that a Zumspot + PiStar offers more functionality at a much lower price point. But there is still advantage to running an embedded device as is found in the Openspot. The question is whether or not it’s worth the premium.

Hopefully whatever they come out with next is released at a more competitive price and offers a feature set that differentiates it from the competition.

IMHO it was a terrible mistake to take the existing product off the market so far in advance of the new hardware coming out. Almost 4 months and no replacement.

Only time will tell....

I don't agree with your statement. The company has been great and my OpenSPOT fantastic. Every question I asked was always answered quickly. One of my questions prompted them to do a quick fix for me to test that resulted in excellent results. They had the fix for me to try in a matter of hours. That fix quickly found its way into the product.

I would buy an additional "classic" OpenSPOT if I could find one. Here is hoping to hear something about the new product in the near future.
