i dont have any evidence of this, but just playing devils advocate, has anyone considered that Mike
may be closing up shop and is just staying open to honor warranties before he shuts down all operations? i mean he’s been at it forever so although this is highly unlikely, i dont think its out of the question...

If Mike was going to do that, he could just say so and nothing would change from what it is right now. There would be no need to hide it.

This is how it often happens with such style of business.

Oh.. did someone say they are looking at another two weeks. Hmmm, turkey day might be that birth of a new hatching..... black case with who knows what inside.

If he wanted to get out of the business, he could sell it and pocket a lot of money. It would be odd to see a company like Valentine simply fold the tent. Two weeks.

That’s exactly it . He built the detector his way and he will revert it back if mods are done. It’s his detector anymore nor does he even inform the customer. He just does it. The customer has 0 say in it
I agree with you. But I also can see the other side of it all from an engineering perspective.

They should inform the owner of what they want to undo and why and then offer a choice.

What if they were to say that they would deny any fixes for display problems for that unit in the future? How many people (that don't understand circuit design) would be unrealistically upset about that?

Also, how many cases of VR changing LEDs back to red are there? Is this real, or is it a story that is passed around that actually has a lot more behind it?

I'm having difficulty believing that Mike V. will have his staff take the time and effort to swap out custom LEDs and replace them for red before sending it back. Sure, he does thing His Way, but that seems a bit anal, even for him.

I suspect what's really happening is that people are sending in their V1s for upgrades (edit: or repairs), and V1 decides to just swap out the old unit for a new, up-to-date unit off the shelf which, not surprisingly, has the default red LEDs.

how long should you wait before you let your job know you are resigning?
