Yes, its happening. And China is not to blame this time.
About a year ago I have been contacted by Paco Millán, a person with longest and most impressive email title I have ever seen in a world of mostly unformal Amiga community:
Community Manager and manager of external communication at AMIGAstore.eu ( http://www.amigastore.eu ).
What was it about? Apparently, at that time Amigastore.eu folks have been unable to come up with viable replacement power supply for small box Amigas by themselves, so they expressed an interest to buy bulk quantity of our AMIPSU lineup and resell them under their trademark, through their web-shop. Because (from number of various reasons) it really made no sense to me, I politely turned down their offer. And I thought its the end of it. Untill today, actually.
I have recently been asked by one of my customers, if I could make a custom version of our A1200 chassis LED module with white LEDs, instead of usual orange-yellow-green combo.
Sure, no problem, this is what we do. The customer response was puzzling, however: could you maybe even sell white LED bars alone, I plan to put them on amigastore.eu version instead, they have the module made of matching black PCB, yet they only make them with orange-yellow-green LEDs combo.
It honestly made zero sense to me, until I browsed their web-shop and found this
, an almost perfect replica of our product. With the exception of sloppy made cable and different PCB color, they have copied whole thing to the point. The idea of laser cut plexiglass lightpipes backlit by SMD LEDs, the way lightpipes are coupled with PCB, precisely the same component placement, module versions split by the chassis revision, its all there.
And while it is somewhat sad to realize people behind amigastore.eu are unable to come out with their own original products and they have to steal from someone else in order to compensate for their incompetence, its on the other hand quite amusing and especially flattering, that among dozens of available LED module designs to copy from, they have chosen the best one – the one of ours. So yeah, how cool is that? 🙂
Thank you, amigastore.eu
P.S.: Our LED boards have evolved, so there is something else you might wanna take a look again soon 😉
I am happy to inform you the USB modules for A1200 maniboards return to Centuriontech.eu shop tommorow. Best of all, they heve been redesigned for better performance and stability inside and outside. Stay tuned!
Minor quantity will be available from Monday, while more units will be made over the week.
To everyone patiently waiting for their AMIPSU orders, the wait is to be over soon. Amiga DC power plugs I am waiting for to resume AMIPSU production are finally beeing cleared by the customs and unless something unexpected happens, they should be cleared in a day or two. You order should then be despatched in following week.
STPSU, our premium replacement power supply for Atari 16/32 bit computers , has been upgraded to 2.1 revision. So what’s new, you may ask? Beside minor layout changes and cutted slots to increase a level of protection for your precious Atari in case of (an unlikely) optocoupler failure, STPSU now features standard Molex connector. In result, you now can connect your upgrades and peripherials, such as floppy drive replacements, hard drives, memory upgrades, accelerators,… using widely available aftermarket cables. Output line filters were even more fine-tuned to ouput yet cleaner power.
All the rest remains the same – STPSU is still perfectly built, highly effective, performant, lightewight and stone cold running power supply, designed specifically for Atari ST and Falcon computers.
And yes, you still do not need anything else but a screwdriver to install it, that is true “plug&play” installation, centuriontech.eu style.
