      What am I supposed to do If I never recieved my Lima?

      I tried to get a refund. Amazon payments told me no.. My credit card company told me No it is to old of a transaction.

      The funny thing is I recieved an email with a tracking number that they shipped my Lima and it then was delivered to Delaware (I live in Las Vegas)

      I just want my 79$ back

      Ryan, quick question, are you watching on your own device or have you installed Lima app on work machine?

    3. Creator Ryan Freeman 4 days ago

      I received mine last year but didn't actually set it up until last night. I have to say I'm pretty satisfied with it so far! I'm now able to access my movie library at home and watch something while I work ;)

      Lima is so messy that even the week numbering scheme is screwed up. There is two week#3 updates in two different weeks. The week#4 is actually the #5.

      Hi all...
      Lets try and get LinusTechTips on YouTube to review the Lime / Plug in there new show called ...KICKFARTED...Have you been burned by a crappy crowd funded product?
      look it up ;-p

    6. Creator Aaron Gould 6 days ago

      I've yet to receive my Lima....I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

    7. Creator Luis Perles on February 5

      @Steven, contact them directly thought their customer email, twitter and Facebook. You need to bug them a little till they release your refund. And remember, Windows phone and Linux were planned in Kickstarter campaign but never delivered. I found this to be the leading point to win.

    8. Creator KC (goatCGC) on February 5

      Gratz, Terry!

    9. Creator terry (Eye Toldyoosso) on February 5

    10. Creator Steven Fritschle on February 4

      I HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY LIMA! and for what I read the device does not work, I want my money back

    11. Creator KC (goatCGC) on February 4

      Out of context, the Vine reviews are not all that scammy, but given the trajectory set by CGC to keep stringing along backers and customers while hiding damaging info makes it part of the larger scam known as Lima.

    12. Creator Luis Perles on February 4

      @KC, indeed Vine customers are prone to give a good review, specially the ones that had "hand-holding" installations. But at the same point, if the Vine positive reviews are moderated down, they may loose the status of Vine customers. But on the positive side, if good reviews attract more customers to buy Limas, for sure they will leave negative reviews, and the whole house of cards built by CGC will fall apart pretty quick.

      @Niels, when my comments on the weekly update blog about not having a Linux version started to disappear I immediately requested a refund based on the principle that CGC did not complete the project. I suggest others do the same.

    13. Creator Jerry Dallal on February 4

      @KC I think my reaction to the word "scam" was different from what you intended. I was unaware of the "hand holding". It certainly will affect things, but for me it doesn't quite cross the line into "scam" the way I usually use the word but I can see how others might feel differently.

    14. Creator KC (goatCGC) on February 4

      Most of the promised feature set are missing. All of them have been surpassed and long-deployed by competitive products with superior hardware specs. All Lima delivers is antique hardware and a lot of vapor.

    15. Creator Niels Bro on February 4

      Still no linux client or ETA and it looks like comments about it, on "The weekly tech update #week4" are disappearing??

    16. Creator KC (goatCGC) on February 4

      I did not say the Vine reviews are fake, I said that CGC is trying to pull their Amazon product rating up with them. Consider that: A) the product is a gift, and as Jerry notes, this does predisposition you towards a positive review, and B) The reviews mention hand-holding by CGC during install: -something a regular purchaser would not receive

      Together, these illustrate my point which is that CGC is trying to game the review system in a new way after having flooded it with fake review previously:

    17. Creator Luis Perles on February 4

      @KC, I agree with Jerry. The reviews from Amazon Vine customers are not fake, but are 50/50. Some may be stumped by the initialization graphics and colors, but the ones that can actually pen a review are the ones that understand enough of technology to see that they cannot trust their data with CGC's Lima. BTW, I recommend you guys to visit Lima's page on Amazon and rank accordingly the reviews.

    18. Creator Jerry Dallal on February 4

      @KC: "CGC is desperate to pull that Amazon rating up, so now they are giving away Lima's in exchange for "honest" reviews." is not necessarily a scam tactic. I've got a bunch of stuff that way and most of my reviews are *far* from glowing. OT1H, one *is* a bit kindly disposed to the vendor, but OTOH people who agree to this will be putting in a lot of time to configure Lima. I expect that those with the technical skills to "sign on" will not be happy if Lima fails to perform as advertised. Also, these reviewers will be more likely to agree or disagree with whatever is already posted than invent a puff review out of whole cloth. FWIW, YMMV,...

    19. Creator KC (goatCGC) on February 3

      Latest Scam Tactic: Sponsored reviews on Amazon

      CGC is desperate to pull that Amazon rating up, so now they are giving away Lima's in exchange for "honest" reviews. This short-term thinking typifies their approach as any real sale that is made based on these dubious reviews is bound to generate an actual real review which are almost universally negative.

      It's amazing that they still expect to sell a product conceived in 2013 on already outdated hardware 3 years later. Tech moves WAY faster than this. Lima is DOA

    20. Creator Kenny Hubbahubbahubba Ng on February 2

      Just throwing this out there: I have a brand new set with me. completely untouched. Willing to post it out from Singapore FREE, as long as you cover the shipping costs. I cant stand to see it on my shelf mocking me.

    21. Creator The CGC team on February 1

      @Everyone: The weekly tech update is out!…

    22. Creator The CGC team on February 1

      @Thomas: this isn't normal: can you please send an email to They'll be able to send you yours and understand what went wrong!

    23. Creator The CGC team on February 1

      @kitkatguy Glad to hear that! Enjoy!

    24. Creator The CGC team on February 1

      @Asaf I hope you were able to fix your problem with support. Concerning the empty hard drive, it's indeed still a constraint but you'll be able to attach pre-filled hard drives soon.

    25. Creator The CGC team on February 1

      @Tim: Our main priority right now is the back-up plan, so this will arrive soon. We'll make sure to let you know when it does.

      The ability to plug a pre-filled hard drive is also in the works but I don't have a precise timeline on this (remember we're not very good at giving dates ;) ).

      However, note that the ability to plug several drives to Lima isn't a priority as of now, so don't expect it too soon.

    26. Creator terry (Eye Toldyoosso) on January 26

      @dim3m lol ;-p

    27. Creator dim3m on January 25

      @Creator, Any plans releasing Lima 2.0 hardware?

    28. Creator Fred M on January 23

      Hi happy day after.......... 3 years I receive The lima........... Incredible

    29. Creator Thomas Covington on January 21

      I have still not received my device ....

    30. Creator KC (goatCGC) on January 21

      Yeah. Sad actually. If CGC had spent half the time or money they spent on deception on development instead, they might have done right by the backers.

      It's your classic spiral of telling lies to cover lies until there is nothing left

    31. Creator BrianS on January 21


      They aren't. It is amusing, however.

    32. Creator KC (goatCGC) on January 20

      @BrianS -I did not realize that the fakeness of those reviews was ever in doubt.

    33. Creator terry (Eye Toldyoosso) on January 20

      The day is here ...I posted mt Plugs/Limas back to France
      i will be getting a Refund by PayPal soon ...i was told
      I will let you know when it happens
      Thanks to all for advice on getting a refund came down to the Linux support in mt case

    34. Creator kitkatguy on January 19

      I had finally started to use my Lima after patiently waiting for the type of USB drive that I wanted. Installation was quite straight forward and smooth and just started to explore the Lima features :)

    35. Creator Tim Barlow on January 16

      Hi guys, I've got my two Lima's still sitting unopened in their boxes (one at work, one at home) waiting for three really important features (which I imagine are holding up lots of other users as well). I appreciate the work you've put into v1.0 but can you give us a realistic timeline for:
      (a) using drives with stuff already on them (the whole reason I purchased Lima rather than relying on a NAS) and, on that note, the ability to connect multiple drives using a USB hub.
      (b) the backup plan
      I'd love to be using these units, but I want to be able to just connect up a bunch of old external drives and access the stuff on them anywhere - I believe this was the original pitch. How far away are we from that vision??

    36. Creator Asaf Mesika on January 16

      I've just installed my Lima - waited couple of months for it to leave beta.
      But not happy yet - I expected it to blend into my life seamlessly - it doesn't: I use Mac, so my music is on iTunes library and photos on Photos app library. After moving my iTunes folder into Music folder on Lima drive, I though I'd be able to enjoy my music on the road using the iOS app but it's not the case since they don't support its format.
      Regarding Photo library - I'll give it a go soon, but I expect the same.

      I had to learn only when installing the device that I need an *empty* USB drive instead of reading it on a getting started guide.

      I have an annoying bug on device which keeps showing me it as offline - working with support team on that so I'm not worried about that.

    37. Creator The CGC team on January 15

      @Fred It seems that you're in contact with our support team already (from my end, they have responded to you multiple times? Please let me know if you haven't received their emails)

    38. Creator The CGC team on January 15

      @David Glad to hear!

    39. Creator David Rostcheck on January 15

      I got mine. It seems to work just fine.

    40. Creator Fred M on January 13

      Hi I never had some news since 3 years no product no answer to questions it's scandalous
      no response no courtesy to its customers

    41. Creator kokobin on January 11

      Amazing that this comments page is sill active.
      Once I got a refund (minus PayPal fees) I felt it wise to mind my biz and this is the first time I bothered to look in and check how Seve and his boys and girls are treating everyone.

    44. Creator Benjamin ThePaparazi Singleton on January 6

      Lima, waste of time, money, and efforts. The concept was solid, the execution, integrity and communication were HORRIBLE. Everytime i consider backing a crowd funding project i remember how PLUG became LIMA, and How LIMA IS CRAP. I want to believe it will work one day, just like I want to believe there is a Santa Claus, unfortunately all I got was a lump of coal to help make for free trips to China for some great Asian food, and I don't even if have it plugged in... maybe I'll use it like it was originally named and plug it in a hole never to be seen again. #LIMA thanks for ruining crowdfunding.

    45. Creator Jerry Dallal on January 5

      Brian Salter: You have to contact customer service so that they can do it over the web. At least, that's the way it used to go.

    46. Creator BrianS on January 5

      My Open Products OPI box is working nicely.

    47. Creator Brian Salter on January 4

      Does anyone know how to reset the user name and password for the Lima device.

    48. Creator KC (goatCGC) on January 4

      Same as it ever was
