Blinder M27 & Blinder M47 X-TREME Laser Jammers
 
Quote:

Here is some footage of the new Blinder M27 and M47's...It has Upgradable capabilities, so no more having to buy a whole new jammer, when the technology changes. This is the best Blinder Xtreme series yet. These jammers have not yet come out, but when they do i'm definitely doing a upgrade.. Awesome performance...
This above announcement (originally posted here a couple of days ago by another member and also several online retailers), unfortunately appears not to have been sanctioned officially by Blinder.

Despite some loose cannoning/missteps by some who claim to act on behalf of Blinder's interests (apparently acting on their own), I have attempted to ascertain the facts directly from the manufacturer surrounding the new Blinder M27 and Blinder M47 models which may become available in several weeks.

Additional information about the Blinder M47 and M27 can be found, here:

The information that was posted about the Blinder M27 and M47 was certainly not sanctioned by Blinder USA...TheM27 and M47 will not be released for a couple weeks yet..."ALSO BUYER BEWARE!!"...Several sites are already selling the new unit and I can honestly say.."THEY DO NOT HAVE THEM IN STOCK"...and because several of them released the info before being sanctioned by Blinder USA they will not be receiving product at all!!! Comes to show you that greed and a big Ego will often time hurt you not help you!

Thanks for weighing in here at STH.

When I first saw the post, I thought, of course, Blinder had sanctioned this.

It wasn't until I spoke with the manufacturer, that I got the full-story.

Hopefully, we have contained this sufficiently, so "rumor central" won't go into high-gear on these forums, and people will give Blinder the time they should have had (all along) to properly/formally introduce their products.

I suspect, this will also serve as a guide going forward for who can be trusted with advanced/inside knowledge and who can not.

Perhaps that's a silver lining in all this...

Thanks, guys!

It irks me that there are those individuals around - and what's more, that they are continually allowed to *continue* to represent Blinder.

As you said on another post, Veil Guy:

Allen, I think you can I could both agree that we've seen this already play out and continue play out on other online forums and communities such as rd.net (which is the reason I chose to create this forum, something you already know).

When agenda-driven shills (ie; hired guns) are sent to do their marketing (often destructive) on the behalf of whom they represent, chaos often ensues and little if any productive knowledge is much harder to find or ferret-out. Which is often their goal, as the most calculating and unethically-run companies [which] have a long-term plan (ie; 'TC's sales & marketing' grand strategy) and enough resources to sell through it.

In other words, they prefer more "heat" (ie; controversy) than light (ie; illumination) and in that [with] chaos truth is often the first casualty.

I think the individual concerned fits, "to a 'T,'" your definition of being a shill.

I'm glad to see that not only did the Forum administration here clamp-down on this, but also that mhardy is here, to represent Blinder's true interests, in an honorable manner.

BTW, mhardy, I had one of my local NASIOC guys ask about the Blinder only a few days before yesterday, when I first read about the Mx7 units. Not only have I asked that particular NASIOCer to hold-off on his pending purchase (for which I'd recommend that he go to you, of-course :)), but also advised him, per your advice on RadarDetector.net as well as here, of the fact that there are currently unscrupulous individuals out there who are mis-representing Blinder, and that, as of yet, they do not have stock of said item.

Allen,

Thanks. Ultimately, though, the responsibility, I believe, should rest with Blinder. Sometimes, you get what you pay for. How many times (of amateur hour) will it take for this point to be (finally) driven home? :dontknow:
