View Full Version : New SB2 owner is getting a bit worried

Is it also fair to say that the SB2 was tested for weeks if not months with
tons of hardware combinations before release?

The bottom line is that they take the design of the product very seriously
and even if a minor hardware rev is required it is probably not going to
effect the bulk of the users out there.
