Power Genius XL update from the 11/19/2018 Insider email:

Production Update

This past week we were pleased to host the 4O3A team in Austin to coordinate our efforts for production restart. As of today we have contacted all remaining customers to return their units for upgrade. We plan to complete those upgrades in the upcoming days so that we can begin shipments of new units. The Thanksgiving holiday will slow down things a bit this week but we expect to be fully staffed the following week. We are in the process of increasing final test and burn in capacity as well as bringing on additional personnel to increase throughput.

Thank you once again for your patience as we complete this process. Based on feedback from the large number of customers who have received the upgrade, we are confident you will be glad you waited.

BTW, I was contacted to return my PGXL for the 6M upgrade, and it is now on its way to Austin.

It is great to see regular updates on the PG-XL from Gerald, the latest being December 3, '18, and that FRS is nearing a point where they plan to contact those who were early on the backlog list.  I'd really like to know whether FRS plans to fill all the PG-XL orders that were placed before the end of 2017, sometime in 2019.

WB4IVF - Howard... Following up on your post regarding returning your PGXL to Austin TX for the 6M upgrade.  Did you ever get it back?   Doesn't seem to be much status these days on new deliveries. Just curious if Flex is making progress on their backlog repairs.

I got my PG back about 10 days ago, loaded with the latest firmware which has some improvements over the previous version – it’s a little quieter on the lowest fan speed setting, min. keying delay has been reduced, and the panel backlighting is finally adjustable.
