Hey, I heard that the '07 Borgs had an issue with the solenoid, in that they wouldn't cycle faster then 20 BPS. Does anybody know if MacDev has fixed them, or offered some sort of solution for them?

I hope so. If they can't get the 07s to cycle faster than the 06s, that's just sad.

MD advertises them at 33 out of the box, so I'm sure it's just a first-run glitch. I just hope it gets fixed soon so I can order one without worrying about sending it back in to get teched.

Before this I wasn't even aware of this glitche, then again, barely any Borg news has reached here.

Kinda sad, isn't it. They're easily as good or better then any other high-end out there, but they're so unknown.

From PBN:

kai83;30337363 said:

Issue # 1: Solenoid will not Cycle 33 pbs.

Status: Confirmed and acknowledged by MacDev.

Found Cause: Evidently the solenoids MacDev purchases has a wider spec tolerance than suspected. All 07 markers are currently affected by this and it seem they fastest we can get them to cycles is 20 bps.

Solution: MacDev has promised that ALL customers will receive an upgraded solenoid once they have found a solution/noid to fit the current situation (probably a trade). This will be a cost free fix available to all 07 owners old or new.

Time Frame: TBA. We do not have a solid date with the release of this new solenoid. There is speculation of a Custom noid that will be produced. <Unconfirmed>


I ask here because nobody over there has a definite answer either way, and I was wondering if there was one here. I can't find any mention on MD's website of it, and, since you'd think they'd make note of it either way.
