buying 49g+


i am thinking of buying a 49g+ from samson cables. does anyone know if their units are the new ones with the keyboard fixes - couldt get a straight answer from them. otherwise i will buy one from eric.

thanks for any help,


I would buy from since I have not heard of anyone getting an older unit from them recently. I have heard recently however, that people have been getting units with CN334 serial numbers from Samson Cables. You want at least a CN352 unit. In Samson's defense though, it is really not possible to tell from the package what they are selling you (serial number is not visible and the plastic blister-pack cannot be opened without destroying it) and they are at the mercy of HP and/or the distributor they deal with in sending them the latest units. Not sure how manages...

Good luck!

thanks mike. this explains why samson's weren't able to verify the fact.

best wishes,


I got one from samson cables two weeks ago with serial number CN402...


Mine from Samson (got some time ago), is CN33304946.
