Someone Stole My Ovilus X - Buy Another Or Switch Devices?
Posted 24 September 2012 - 11:59 AM
My Ovilus X was stolen about 3 weeks ago [insert frustration level to the max here].
When I originally bought it, it was about $80-$100 less (depending where you look now) than it is now.
I don't know if I want to shell out another $220-$250 .. that's what I've seen lately, everywhere I've checked.. unless someone's seen them for less?
Anyway, before I invest again, do you think the Ovilus X is the best ESS device around right now? Or, does anyone think something is better?
I already have the DTD for the OX, so, well.
Thoughts on this? Ovilus X vs a competitor?

Thinking from a POV of "if *I* were a ghost...." and think it would be very frustrating.
for starters "what is your name?"
I have an odd ethnic name, even my nickname is still odd/ethnic.
What are the chances that if the ghost were in MY situation they'd be able to get the box to cough up their unusual name.
Easy if you are Tom, John, William, Susan, or Marie...
How useful if you are Tziva, Gertrude, Trin Le, Chang, Chaim ...Bannafanafofana "but you can call me Princess..." ?
Or the "how did you die? what happened to you?" when it's something kind of unusual or weird.
In most of the cases where I've seen it used (unfortunately only the tv), it seems like there's a one word answer or sort of reply
and the wild speculation filling in the gaps. (imagining very frustrated ghost going "That is NOT what I meant! dang nab it! stupid fleshies!" )
The level of ARRGGHHHH I'm imagining is like when I'm trying to communicate with a LIVING relative or friend who is losing their hearing but won't
wear their hearing aid, or keep it charged up.

I have little faith in the Ovilus. I have seen some interesting things (like cussing when they're not loaded with swear words and like sound effects) but I mostly think of them as a toy to play with when you're bored on an investigation.
BUT... for $1.99 you can download I-Ovilus (for both iphones and android platforms) instead of buying the machine. It works just as well as the original. Save some money on the toy.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. --Herm Albright

I have to agree here except I'm still a firm believer that analog is better than digital.
