      I hope Mr. De Silva's guilt lasts a lot longer than the loss of our hard-earned money that was lost to this man.

      @Keith Anderson et al, Quo is alive and crawling like a roach. Using our money to fund other projects, no doubt.

      It appears that this thief is finally out of business. Quo website is gone. Too bad he could not do the right thing.

      Still nothing. This man should be sent to jail and all his possessions sold. Kickstarter ought to sue him to protect it's users.

      Can anyone recomment a working WiFi/BT card? I'll buy it by myself, because I don't think that Quo Computers will ever deliver it...

    9. Siegfried Bruner on May 18, 2015

      @Keith and Martin: it seems the people most likely to receive nothing were the people who backed at the complete systems level. I believe that some of the boards were never delivered, but the most under-delivered rewards were the systems.

      Keith Anderson on May 5, 2015

      @Martin: I am in the same position as you -- received the board but not the Wifi/BT add on card. Seems that Rashantha has disappeared with our money for the add on cards. A real shame, considering cards are available on Ebay for $49.00. I think we were scammed, but not as bad as others here.

      From the posts here, we know that people have gotten rewards from this campaign, but I also wonder how many backers failed to get their rewards. I backed "THE CONNECTED BY DEMAND" for $289. While I got my board, they failed to include the wifi/bluetooth card with it. Oh yeah, no t-shirt either. I asked them about it and they said "We are very sorry. We will send you a t-shirt. BT/Wifi is an add on card and we will ship when it is ready." That was back in late September 2013. I never got the t-shirt or the BT/Wifi card. I did ask about the missing items a number of times, plus left messages on Kickstarter. But nothing. I am seem to be one of the lucky ones who received something. The board is still working right now.

    12. Siegfried Bruner on January 30, 2015

      Or, more likely, Quo will continue selling product they won't share with their beneficiaries.

    13. Siegfried Bruner on January 30, 2015

      Quo website down today. Is this THE END of Quo Computer?

      @Jeffery: I am sorry to hear about you never receiving your award. Your amount of unrewarded money is huge compared to my $39.00 for the non-existent Bluetooth/Wi-Fi board promised.

      I'm interested in knowing how many backers have not received their reward. I pledged close to $3000.00 for an ultimate collector edition and an SSD upgrade and haven't received anything, no emails or returned phone calls for almost a year. I'm interested in knowing who else hasn't had their pledges fulfilled.

    18. Siegfried Bruner on December 29, 2014

      Seems Rashantha and I are the only ones with any remaining interest in this project.

    19. jt on December 5, 2014

      I live close by his business located in Alhambra, CA. Evidently, he's still a tenant in the building because there's lights still on and a television running inside. I've been by a few times when I'm driving by the neighborhood in an effort to collect a judgement I won against him and this fraudulent Kickstarter campaign. I’ve never seen him and he certainly won’t answer the door. It's the first time I've ever gone to court for anything but Rashantha's a lying scumbag that needs to be held accountable. I don’t need to polite anymore — that's what he IS. A brazen criminal and a liar.

      Local detectives in Alhambra could care less that he bilked his Kickstarter supporters for $189K. It doesn’t matter that he’s still openly conducting business through his storefront and website. They won’t lift a finger to investigate or withhold his business license. It irks me that he doesn’t assume a shred of responsibility or remorse for his investors. His silence is criminal.

      And for anyone who still cares, Quo is having another Black Friday sale featuring a chassis and the AOS motherboard.

    21. Siegfried Bruner on October 22, 2014

      @Jacques: As did I, but I have given up. Rashantha has abandoned his project and backers.

      I did receive my motherboard, haven't tested it, for those lucky enough to get their boards do you have any guides to follow? The site of quocomputer is down.

      thanks

      Brendan, Rashantha/Quo hasn't been heard from on this campaign since August 19, 2013, 326 days ago. I would consider that abandoned. Those of us that tried repeatedly to get the product or a refund from Rashantha/Quo were unsuccessful, emails unanswered, phone voice mail boxes full.

      I finally submitted a refund request over 4 months ago through Visa. Visa has a 540 day "product charge back" policy. I submitted mine under the 'Claims and Defenses" chargeback rights and was successful. I received my refund, though I am uncertain who actually paid the refund, if it was Quo or KS.

    27. Siegfried Bruner on July 9, 2014

      @Brendan: some have successfully campaigned for and received a refund, but this is no simple process because Quo will not provide a refund and Kickstarter denies any responsibility.

      Tuco Valenzuela on July 9, 2014

      yes, people still don't have their stuff.

    29. Brendan on July 8, 2014

      Honestly has stuff still not shipped?

      Stupidity of it all is astounding. Anyone still waiting should just seek a refund and move on.

      I'm already looking to replace my rig with an actual mac, it's been a short lived experience that examples exactly how not to do practically everything.

      313 days (08/19/2013) since Rashantha De Silva of Quo Computer has posted his last update to communicate status on this project.
      454 days (04/01/2013) since we paid our money to Quo Computer and no product.
      325 days (08/08/2013) since he promised he would ship to me the product and he never did.

      But, it is with great relief I can post today that I have had my money ($289) refunded by Visa. It took a long time to resolve this through Visa, but well worth the time.

      Even better, I built my own Hackintosh last September of 2013 and it has been a solidly running system dual booting Windows 7. The board was cheaper than the Quo board and covers all of my needs. It is actually time to build another, nearly a year later!

      Good luck all, I'll stop back and say hello, but other than that, it's time to say goodnight.

      Clint on Jan 2
      "I also am using a TP-Link TL-WDN4800 wireless card. Had a little trouble getting it working but I explained it in that thread. I just got a Targus ACB10US USB bluetooth adapter today and so far it's working great. Wake from sleep works with the magic mouse. Haven't tried a reboot yet.
      Also just realized I didn't put the url to that InsanelyMac thread in the last post. Here ya go:

      Maybe someone at Kickstarter are allergic to BBQ? Anyway it was only a citation from the website, not a comment, so it's quite strange it was used censorship.

      Well, it looks like the webpage I linked to is related to Quo's new venture: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/05/prweb11894286.htm
      I wonder how they justify spending time on other stuff when they haven't sent out all they promised with this project or even acknowledged the remaining backers in nine months.

      I don't look at the Quo website, and have no idea what the robot means.
