For a second I read that they went bankrupt... phew.

The first Scythe product I bought is the Scythe Kaze Master Pro fan controller and it's the best looking and performing controller I ever had (it's from Japan). Hope they are ok!

Yeah, the headline got me worried as well. And funny...I have a fan controller as well, but it's the KAZE Q model. Very solid and cheap too.

I think i'll hold on to the lot I have. Something tells me the price of these fans is going to skyrocket.

Profiteering FTW.
