No, but for once I would like Belquette to actually stand behind the claims that they make. Seriously Jerid, why are you guys trying to so hard to dodge the question? This is exactly the kind of behavior that I pointed out when I stopped doing business with them in the first place, which YOU have told me up down and sideways that they have changed as a business; I don't see that.
When I first went over to the Flexi side, we (ie, you, me, Tom, Mark, etc) used to berate the T-Jet gang for constantly promising things (either online or at trade shows) that never came to fruition, or simply never worked right, or were just nothing but hype to sell products - if they couldn't back up their claims, we were all over them..... Apparently, you have forgotten this, but as a machine owner who has been BURNED by several companies in the past, I have not. In fact, I have become even more adamant about holding companies accountable for their claims (truth? lies? or just fluffed up marketing?), since they DIRECTLY AFFECT the end users and potential end users.
Considering I dropped well over $30,000 into Belquette when I was a machine owner, I think the least they could do is back up the claims they are making on their website, when a curious former-owner like myself asks. But once again, I stopped spending money with them for reasons like this, so I am not surprised; I was just checking your theory, Jerid, about Belquette having changed so much since "way back then". The Mod may be a decent machine, and they probably (finally) hit something right on the head with the bagged ink systems; however, I see the same half-truths I am used to seeing, and the same "assuaging customers concerns without actually doing anything about it", regarding the Flexi. Maybe I am wrong about that, but you guys sure expend more energy trying to rebuke me than you do trying to back up your website claims.
Let me ask you something, Jerid - since you seem to feel that a manufacturer or distributor ONLY needs to answer questions about their machines to people who own them, then why do you continue to pop up in the Neoflex forum, grilling Peter about his machine quality / customer satisfaction rate / etc? Next time you pop up and try to take jabs at another brand, I am going to copy and paste your responses, to me, when I ask about Belquette's products.
