Just got mine today. Mine is Number 171 out of 1500 Backer Edition.

 

I'm powering it up now, looks pretty cool.

I actually am pretty happy with this over all. Seems to play better than expected!

glens review wasn't as optimistic, there was lag, and the dial control didn't work well:

I think considering the small size, the rotary not being a true "spinner" is understandable - I'm not sure how they could scale it down and still have enough weight to have that kind of inertia. But the issue with the lag is a dealbreaker - hopefully they can get that sorted out with a firmware update.

You fix the spinner issue/feel with a multiplying gear. Spin a smaller weight faster. Of course that would cost more.

I received mine yesterday. Very nice looking. Game play is pretty decent, the tiny lag' doesnt bother me too much but the 'drift' component does irk me. If I stop moving the spinner, I expect the claw to stop immediately.  This 'drift' feature is really something I wish they had included only as an 'option' that could be enabled/disabled.

Fairly happy with mine.  Yeah, the spinner could be a bit nicer (the 'clickiness' isn't a welcome addition) and I kind of wish the resolution was higher.  But it does look and play pretty well... I've certainly been enjoying it!

The lag. I could even see the lag in the youtube reviews.

Apparently there's a firmware update coming soon that will address the "simulated inertia." I'm not a KS backer so I don't know if they've sent out emails regarding this, but they've mentioned it in the comments on the KS page.
