You can vote for more than one, although, I have to say, I hope that wouldn't end up obligating me.  I need to go read terms & conditions....

Mine, too.  I'll definitely be a buyer if the price is right.

I'm interested at the right price - went with the Cafe Creme. It's my first time using Massdrop and not sure how it all works so I'll be in touch.

Thanks everyone!

 

Massdrop is really cool, I've used it for a Safari and some audio equipment. They just had the M800's for sale for like $350!

 

You can vote without obligation! Their customer service is top notch and shipping is relatively quick.

 

How it works is the more people buy the lower the prices goes. But to get a "drop" started more that 200 people have to vote to gauge interest, so vote up!

 

 

They have a whole section dedicated to writing: https://www.massdrop...buy?cat=writing

I voted for the Cafe Creme and the demonstrator.   My one Pelikan, a vintage 400, is getting lonely, so I would love to get one of these (if I can afford the final price) to keep her company!

I don't have a horse in this race as I'm not lacking for any M200's but I did throw a vote in for the Café Crème. Hope you guys get the drop. Good luck!

I picked up the M400 last month and it all worked out just as described. It was my first MassDrop purchase.

 

I voted for the Demonstrator and the Cafe Creme. I really want an M200 demonstrator.

I voted for the Cafe Creme (looks delicious) and the Demo (don't have one of these yet).
I already have a black M200. I already have 5 M205 pens, none in black though.

How many black German pens does a girl need? :unsure:

I think the simplest answer to this is "grey market." The way massdrop explains it is they buy "directly from the vendor." Keyword here is "vendor," not "manufacturer." They don't do warranty exchanges and tell you to contact the manufacturer directly for warranty issues.

I have never used Massdrop before. For those who have, are there any reports of problems? The above makes me just a little bit concerned.

Thank you for clearing that up. I had never heard of Massdrop before...but I voted for a Pelikan Cafe Creme 😊
