EEVBlog BM235 pulled from Amazon
« on: May 12, 2017, 01:15:44 am »
Today I was looking up the BM235 on Amazon for a friend when I noted the listing was gone. Does this mean the 121GW is being released soon?!? If so I'm super excited for it.

In the past when this has occurred it is because they were out of stock.

The 121GW is not a replacement for the BM235, it's a higher range model that will be sold in addition to the BM235.

Why wouldn't he just leave the listing up and have a will be in stock this date notice like every other product on Amazon that runs out of stock?!? Did Dave say he was going to sell them concurrently. From reading the supporter thread here about it and watching all the videos I got the impression that he wasn't going to be selling both.

I emphasized 'he' in the quote above to note that he (Dave) didn't do it, Amazon did.
Here's a link where Dave says so:

Good to know. Odd. I wonder what criteria Amazon uses for this decision. I shop on Amazon A LOT and I've never seen a product page disappear when stock runs out.

Good question, and I agree, I've not seen that behavior on Amazon either (well, that I was cognizant of anyway :-)
Maybe Dave knows... ?

Probably because there is long restock time, IIRC a few weeks, and Amazon would hide it so there is no back ordering for it, as the customers are used to next day delivery on all items.

Here we are getting used to same year delivery.
