Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Purchased on release date. Showed up yesterday. Was in on position when removed from the box so it was completely dead. Charged overnight, charge indicator green this morning. Won't power on. Sent in exchange/return info this morning. Currently backordered poor first experience. Hopefully backorder won't take forever since I purchased the day of release. 1star so far but that's on boss, not zZounds.
