Hi all,
This thread was kind of upsetting :
http://www.morphzone.org/modules/newb ... php?topic_id=5495&forum=3

I don't understand. Would some expert enlighten me on this topic.

I didn't put this in the Amiga Classic Forum because it's not exactly cold! I'm not sure what I was reading?

Moved to the classic hardware section. I don't think this is "too hot to handle" at all. Just a user rather annoyed at the service received from Hyperion.

Well, what I could read Hyperion did everything they could to get the broken board to fixed.
I was a bit surprised that they did put that kind of commitment in fixing one borken board...

Hyperion properly do not tri repairing it them self, but most have sent it to some one how does for example DCE, DCE does not have the best service record when it comes to reaping things on time.

Maybe DCE collects X number broken board then make order of X CPU’s, to get discount, instead of ordering X number of CPU’s and have this in storage until a broken CPU board comes (on option 2 DCE risk having storage to long, the CPU goes out of warranty, and discover way to late the product was DOA, and there for ends up whit extra cost.)

Hi all and @Raziel


Me too! The Amiga.org announcement was dated February 2004:
http://www.amiga.org/modules/news/article.php?storyid=3197
>>Now is the ideal time to get your Classic Amiga ready for OS4.

I got the OS4.PreRelease for the A1 in July. I was unaware that the classic was even being worked on. My main concern is upgrading my a1200 to run OS4.0 Are there any reputable vendors support this. The only I believe in is AmigaKit!!

@LiveForIt and ssolie
Yes, if Hyperion subcontracted the work, then they got their reputation burned by a third party vendor. That's not good for business.

How much is it going to cost to run on Classic?

That doesn't matter at all. When Hyperion accepted the board for repairs, they are responsible for it, even if they subcontract the work.
If they can't send the board back to the owner, they should pay him a refund.

It seems they are equally unreliable keeping hardware promises like they are unable to keep software promises. OS4 for Classics still is not released. But at least someone bothered to bring an empty box to Empoli.

It is old news that Hyperion offered repairs for ppc-boards and
i think it was via a French repair shop but i am not sure.

Here is the link:

Edit: It is not because this board dit not got repaired that all
the rest off the repaired boards are bad too. Btw. i did send
my board to dce a long time ago and it took a long time too.
