Push 2 buttons coating quality

Post by Ubik » Fri Nov 20, 2015 12:04 pm

Not to be a whiner (as I said the new Push is fantastic) but I'm a bit concerned with the buttons coating quality. I was using Push this morning and my fingernail hit a button (I was pressing the button softly not hitting it like a drum pad) and removed tiny bits of the coating revealing the light under it. I don't have witch nails, is that fragile ? If so, I'm afraid that after month of usage it will vanish by itself...

This issue alongside lag are making me think twice about buying Push 2

Btw, i'm curious, are they still readable or did have to paint on them or somethin like that?

I still have to test proof it but apart that issue the overall build quality is good and the design very well thought.

The Push 2 buttons (not the drumpads) feel really thin and not-so-long-lasting compared to Push 1. Feels like there are sturdy buttons beneath, covered with a thin rubbercoated cap on it.

But honestly for me, it doesnt matter if it wears a bit. It's a tool, and is not just a fancy object to make your friends drool.

I tried Push 2 in a store and immediately thought this thin rubber coating over clicky button is a bad idea...

At a 1150$ in Canada this tool better have long lasting buttons...

there is only 2 possible options
1/ try before you buy
2/ take it back if you dont like it within the 30 day money back option

simple :)

@RDiiO Didn't you have thread about this here?... I am waiting for the price to drop before I take the plunge. But really these buttons were a poor choice for a famed german engineering. Coating aside that rubber layer will break IMHO.
