    I bought their sorry Mico pod system which they took from Mi-Pod. The pods leak and it only worked well for about 4 days; looked good but total junk of a performer. Due to that experience, I will pass on the Orion clone for now. If it turns out to get good reviews over a period of time, never know, might buy one later down the line. That is only due to liking the Nord. Almost every other Smok product I have has not left a good impression on me.

    Yep and every computer maker on the planet (other than crApple) cloned IBM's. In fact at one point all non IBM PC's were called "IBM compatibles".

    If you take the worst examples of a manufacturer and base any future buying decisions on that alone there won't be many devices to choose from for new purchases. The trap most of us have fallen into at least once is believing the hype train before devices are widely used and evaluated by real users before purchasing and finding out the hard way this is not a good idea. But it doesn't mean a subsequent device from the same manufacturer won't be a brilliant little gem. With Smok I think I would use the Novo and Nord as good examples of real successes among a litany of substandard devices that have failed to meet the hype or have just been really poor devices overall.

    This is exacerbated by all the Youtube shill reviewers that only have their own best interests and view counts in mind when evaluating new products and giving glowing reviews while omitting glaring product flaws that far too many vapers take as gospel and waste good money on. Case in point, if I see a Youtube review of a pod system that the main focus point is the amount of cloud it produces I will just exit the review. Youtube reviews are worth exactly what you paid to watch them IMO. Wait for the real users like on ECF... and wait for enough of them to be a valuable sample set to form a realistic opinion.

    So I very much agree with you Vicman, wait a bit and see how this device performs. At the least, it looks intriguing enough to keep an eye on. If the fit and finish is really good, the performance very good, and the price cheap enough to justify it might be a great little device. I can't tell any of that from marketing photos, but I will keep an eye on this for a while to see how it does. I do know the mesh coils perform very well in the Nord and have great flavor which will make it quite a bit better that the Orion at least in that regard, so I'll wait to see how the rest of the device is received by others.

    Let's wait for reviews. It is hard not to press the order button with a price of 27 USD right now on pre sale.
    But it will be harder to trash it into the bin with a lot of frustration...

    And until end of April a lot of things can happen.
    I would be willing to pay more if there would be a "perfect" system. But hey.. how would "they" make money if we would not buy the hype ...

    My Wish: DNA Go with Escribe a Pod with Replaceable Coils (min 3/4 ML) and a 1000/1500 Battery. No need for fancy Metall plastic would do it as well. Lightweight and leakproof. Mesh Coil for surface and flavour and a "good" MTL draw. AFC on the bottom of the coil.

    As far i saw on the advertising the AFC option is missing on the Trinity.

    "taking the lead".. if a company is copying devices, that's one thing, but blatantly lying about it? MEH!

    I thought about that, too. When I saw it, I literally laughed out loud when I saw the pic. BUT: They said TAKING the lead...meaning they admit that they weren't leading, but think they'll surpass the competitors with their Orion - I mean Trinity Alpha (how many names do they need for one product, anyway? Name it Trinity or Alpha) product.

    TBH, I don't even really care anymore. It's Smok, it's marketing. I hope people use it, love it, and don't smoke. And then find a product from a company that at least pretends to be honest.

    Like you said in the latter part of your comment- for me, it's not that hard to resist ordering a product that won't even ship for almost a month. I'll wait for anything until I hear response from the real users on this site.
