2box is a survivor

When the 2box kit was launched, some questioned its build quality and the ruggedness of the system. So, five years after purchasing a kit, Jan van Vugt reports on its current state of health:

I BOUGHT MY 2box kit five years ago (April 30, 2012) at a time of much ridicule and contempt on some forums.

In the summer of 2012, I installed an extension cable for the SD-slot which allowed me to use 32 GB SD cards (instead of the default 4 GB SD) for my samples. The modification is still in place, and working perfectly. Later, I began using the first version of the brilliant SDSE conversion software to import BFD2 kits into the 2box.
