Received Ghost MV1 - First Impressions
First thing I did when I pulled it out of the box was pull the glass mouthpiece up. It made a horrible grinding and then pulled out the entire heat sink, separating from the heat sink lid. Come to find out I guess this is common and stem is being replaced. I didn't know then, and it was sort of a bad first impression.
Same impression w/ added cracked ceramic sleeve in heatsink. GHOST took care of a speedy and better replacement, but had to postpone first go for 3 days. Still testing and formulating overall opinion but it's alright despite shaky fits & starts. GHOST is honoring their commitments thus far.
Only heavy gripe is with the ceramic parts. I don't like the raw, unpolished parts. They are prone to breakage and may weaken over time. Not sure of health efficacy, esp when grinding against glass and general wear. But that remains to be seen. MV1 has other fish to fry with app release coming next week.
Battery seems to discharge in 50-60 draws but still testing. Will post results in the appropriate threads after the weekend.
I do like: Solid Structure
Swing Out Crucible Door
Superior Extraction & Efficiency
I don't care for: Ceramics
Ultra Stiff Latch
Plastic Heatsink Covering
Possible Issues: Silicone Seals weakening
Better than most. Superior cs and communications with GHOST. A working app may correct certain gripes, fingers crossed. Warming up to the MV1. Lifted for sure8-)
