Enter to win a Rotex RO 90 DX or Workcenter WCR 1000!
« on: January 20, 2011, 01:38 PM »
The Festool Owners Group is a premier destination on the web for people who are seeking information about Festool products.  One of the best sources of information is reviews that are written by our members.  This educates others about the products and offers an unbiased, first-hand account of the tool or accessory.  Based on the success of our last review-based contest, we're doing it again! Members can submit a product review in their own words about a Festool tool or accessory that they currently own for a chance to win.  I would say that the majority of forum members have, at some time, benefited from the sharing of knowledge here on the forum.  This is your opportunity to share with others and have the potential of being rewarded for your endeavors.

Contest Rules

  • The reviews must be your own original material.
  • You may submit reviews of more than one product to increase your chances of winning. Multiple reviews of the same product are not eligible for consideration.
  • Existing reviews are not eligible for this contest.  You may not submit a review for the contest of a product which you have already reviewed on the forum.
  • Reviews must consist of two or more photos of the product in use and a minimum of 400 written words or a minimum of sixty seconds (60s) of video.
  • Video reviews should be uploaded to YouTube and then posted in your review thread.
  • Contest entries must be posted by Thursday, February 17th, 2011.
  • The contest is open to members of the forum in the United States and Canada, excluding Quebec, who are at least 18 years of age, except where prohibited by law.
  • Festool employees, dealers and affiliates, and FOG moderators are not eligible to win (but may choose to participate).
  • Festool reserves the right to use the content from any entries in the SysNotes email newsletter or other marketing materials.

Prizes


Winners will be randomly selected from the list of entries that adhere to the contest rules above and announced by Friday, February 18th, 2011.

How to Enter.

Members must submit their entries for the contest in the form of a post on the forum.  The post must include the following information at a minimum:

  • Reviews should be entitled "Review of Festool" and then the product name and product number and should be posted as a new thread in the Festool Tool Reviews section of the forum.
  • Written reviews must contain two or more application photos showing the product in use and a minimum of 400 words.
  • Video reviews must be a minimum of sixty seconds (60s) long and should be uploaded to YouTube.  Video reviews can also be posted in a thread on the forum using the same formatting listed above for written reviews.


Feel free to post any questions you might have.  Best of luck to everyone!

Thanks for catching that, Greg. It's sixty and I have updated it accordingly. The previous review contest required 90 seconds. I figured I'd reduce it to make it easier since folks may find it hard to talk in front of a camera.

Brice,

If you can't find yours, I have another one.  I'll loan you one - just because I enjoy your reviews.   [big grin]

Don't tell me I'm the only one that wants a free RO90 or WorkCenter. [blink] Where are the reviews guys. 

I hope to get the ball rolling with a short, unofficial, video review, that is if I can find the time this weekend.

I'd be all over it if it weren't for this requirement:

"Reviews must consist of two or more photos of the product in use and a minimum of 400 written words or a minimum of sixty seconds (60s) of video. "

Using power tools when it's 10 degrees F or lower in the shop isn't a good time.

Unfortunately.  Just as we in NA are unfortunately excluded from so many tools and accessories.

Maybe Festool - not Festool USA - will devote the time and money to run a forum like this - and run contests like this?

Peter I thought it was ul that decided you were not compitent enough (as a county)to be let loose with some of the festools and that is an american outfit

I was just thinking of the many people that have spent conciderable time reviewing festools and uploading content to the fog.

I hoped my reply would be enjoyed with some humor.  I embrace the contributions from our foreign members and have said so numerous times.  I too personally hope that one day all can be eligible for contests - but there are obstacles far beyond even my need or right to know that must be in place.

I hope all members consider themselves winners with the wealth of information here. I know that might sound a little cheesy, but I really think that's the case. It's the symbiotic relationship amongst members/moderators/Festool that makes this forum great.

However, the reality is that it's not as easy for us to conduct contests across continents. And, Festool offers giveaways, contests, promotions, campaigns, special limited time products, special programs like the tool replacement program for stolen tools and Tool Points in Europe, that vary greatly from region to region. It's not that we don't appreciate the contributions of our international members, it's just difficult to administer and award prizes outside of the U.S./Canada.

Even so, we may have additional international contests in the future and I'll make every effort to guarantee that we will have at least one winner from abroad when we do. How's that?

Rotex RO 90 DX



Shane im sorry to have to give you grief over this and I can see it would be less than straight forward to send a ro90 to europe as the American model would be UL and not CE

There could also be other issues stoping you including people outside of the states that I have no idea about.

but by limiting the entries to the states you also limit the amount of the material and I have seen some good stuff from this side of the pond.

And just as a aside we dont get anything festoolwise here in the UK no toolpoints or tool replacement program nada..


Shane I will look forward to a international contest in the future and thank you for all your hard work

Hi Shane -- thanks for posting the update.  I did a review on the T15 drill and I think Paul did a video review of the MFK700.

Question...in the rules you say that you can do a written review OR a video review. I just want to confirm...you cannot do both written and video for the same tool/accessory and get entered into both contests? Just want to be clear.

Nick,

You're welcome to do both a written and video review, but not for the same product. That would be covered under this portion of the contest rules:

Quote
You may not submit a review for the contest of a product which you have already reviewed on the forum.

So, each review needs to be for a unique tool or accessory. Thanks.

Don't feal bad,  [big grin] it looks like the reviews of the Writex, the Kaffetasse, and the Thermoflasche were disqualified as well.

And this in spite of good arguments were made that they are all essential tools.  [tongue]

Yeah, I meant the parody review to be included as outside of the box, I'm thinking a Kapex or even the OF2200.  You know something small so when Shane has to pay for it out of his own pocket it won't hurt too much. [tongue]

Ha!  Thanks Frank and Brice.

I was at the Advanced Router class last week, and whilst out to dinner I mentioned to Shane that I had no expectation that my “Writex” review be counted for the prizes.  It was just inspired fun.
He gave me a (somewhat) baleful look and grin, and grunted “Yeah”.  Shane, you are a man of few words and infinite meaning!

If my math is right, I have 1:14 odds of winning over Paul-Marcel.  I think I'd feel badly if my one so-so video won the award over his 13 amazing  videos.  Then again, when that Workcenter arrives, those feelings will disappear.

Guys, I'm blown away by the quantity and quality of these reviews!

The last minute submissions are great.

In my opinion, this is the type of content that makes this forum great. My sincere thanks to the participants for making the contest a success and for sharing their commentary on a wide array of tools and accessories. Brilliant work by all of you. Well done.  [thumbs up]

I look forward to select our winners tomorrow and handing out some prizes!

Edit: I've been updating my previous post with all of the reviews if you want a consolidated list.

Drum roll, please....



Again, I'd like to thank everyone who participated. To put yourself out there, especially the guys who did videos, in front of your peers can be intimidating. I think I speak on the behalf of all members (and those who lurk) that this generated a lot of great content for the site. We get a lot of traffic to the forum where people are searching for this type of information. You guys all did a superb job.

We had 35 written reviews and 23 video reviews, for a total of 58 total new reviews!

I want to congratulate our two randomly selected winners: VictorL and Aegwyn11 (Nick) who will receive their choice of an RO 90 or WCR 1000. Of course, we hope to see them produce great reviews of their prize winnings in the coming weeks.

That may leave you guys, and Paul Marcel, scratching your heads in disbelief. It looked like Paul was a run away winner in the video review category. Well, I want to reward Paul for producing more than a dozen reviews which generated a lot of discussion and interest, including the very comical stein review which I laughed at uncontrollably while watching. So, Paul is going to get rewarded for his efforts and hopefully we'll see more of his great video reviews.  [not worthy]

Lastly, it's a shame that everyone can't be a winner because we had several guys take their time to put together reviews that gave back to our online community. Well, actually, everyone can be a winner. Everyone else who submitted a review will get their choice of a T-Loc Systainer in a size of their choosing. It's just our way of saying thanks for the effort.

Congrats to all of our participants!

Hopefully we'll see even more participation with the next forum contest.  [wink]

Congratulations VictorL and Aegwyn11!  Enjoy your new tools.

Shane -- that is awesome that you are giving other contestants a new Systainer -- what a nice gesture!  I enjoyed writing the reviews I did and I know I personally benefit from reading and watching other's recommendations.  I too particularly enjoyed Paul's videos and I think that he set a new benchmark.  I am looking forward to watching the other video entrants this weekend too as I have not had time yet!

Thanks!!

My congratualtions to the three big winners, and to all my fellow consolation prize winners.  Awarding us with systainers is very generous of you and of Festool Shane.

I can't belive that Paul did not win the draw, but I am very happy that Festool decided to award him with a bigh prize.  Paul's contributions to this contest (yes even including the stein parody) have been quite valuable to me.

I have talked to my granddaughter Isla who makes jewellery and we have decided to opt for a systainer 3 which we will then fit out special compartments and trays in which to hold her jewellery making tools and some of the jewellery.
 
I loved the contest and look forward to the next one.

Shane,

Paul Marcel is filling an immense gap in Festool user information.  Y'all need to reward him appropriately and ensure that somebody in Festool Germany recognizes the value of his efforts.  It's his work that has sold me on the utility of many Festool products.  He is your best salesman!

On behalf of all the other "lurkers" here,  thanks Paul for a job well done.

I agree with others that Paul is a great salesman for Festool and he has certainly earned any item that Festool sends his way.

Right now, I am going to purchase two small items based on one of Paul'seviews -a hard pad and an auxilary handle for the Rotex 150.  Later on, I expect to buy more.

All the other reviewers were great too, I think I picked up something from everyone's reviews. The posts also let me participate more in the forum and learn about fellow FOG'ers.

I'm glad I got a chance to participate and the new T-Loc was totally unexpected. Now I just have to find room for it! Much appreciated.

Have a great weekend!

I've said it before and I'll say it again - fantastic job on the videos, Paul-Marcel.  If you received commission for all the Festool stuff we bought as a result of your videos, you could probably get yourself a Workcenter and a Rotex.  Thumbs up!

Oh, and congratulations to Nick and Victor.

The funny thing is, I think that I see more immediate use for a T-Loc than either the Rotex or Workcenter!  Funny how things work out.  Thanks, Shane.  I need to figure out which size I would like...

Congratulations to Victor and Nick!  I think Victor was the first to post a written review and Nick the last to post a video review.  So, for the superstitious, keep that in mind for the next contest!

As for being a great salesman, I hope I wasn't!  Was just being honest about what I like and sometimes dislike about a tool, but if that sold you on something you 'need'  [cool] just don't tell your wife I was responsible!

I also want to thank Shane and Christian for awarding me a prize despite not winning per the rules.  It will be very appreciated!

So... what is it you ask? Oh, this is something even Mr NAINA doesn't have!  (btw, happy birthday :))  While I know Shane told me not to tell you, I'm too giddy... it's a prototype for a new Festool product so there's only one in the world and it will be in my shop in a week.  Forget that puny sander or that organizer for your screwdrivers... no! this, folks is the real deal:

I just read through this thread and wanted to say "Well Done Festool" for giving all the reviewers a surprise prize. That's a really classy touch and rare in today's world of corporate bottom lines and penny-pinching.

What with the FOGtainer support, the reconditioned tools programme, the customer service and of course the FOG, it's been a fantastic year to be a Festool user and Festool would definitely get my vote for favourite company.

So...WDF!

Congrats everyone! I must say that the video reviews helped me decide to finally buy. I haven't seen too many of the videos yet, but I am working through them. I saw all of Kreg's videos and he helped me make some decisions. I saw a couple of paul's as well the were excellent!

The videos definitely were the deciding factor in me buying.

Shane, do you guys have any statistics as to if sales increased? It would be interesting to see if there was a notable increase. I know my wallet is about 6k lighter so far, and NOW Kreg had to review the kapex on the stand!  [eek] So I expect my wallet to be a little lighter after JLC!  [embarassed]

Thanks everyone for all your time on the videos and reviews. I am looking forward to watching them all!

Scott, I'm not going to be coy about it, one of the goals of the review contest was to peak customers' interest in the tools being reviewed. However, it would be impossible to track what sales may have resulted from the reviews. I don't expect that everyone ran out and bought all of the tools that were reviewed but that it may help you make an educated decision when you're considering your next purchase. Plus, there are some hidden gems in our product line up and I think a few of those may have been highlighted in the reviews.

I know I personally find online reviews very helpful when I'm making purchases. For instance, I've been reading some recently because it's time to upgrade my wireless router at home and I want to make sure I get one that has good range throughout my entire house on all floors. Same with a recent purchase of a new home theater system. I can feel confident that I'm getting a good value for my money and minimizing risk. Same with the reviews here.

My systainer arrived today, thanks.  I also chose a systainer 3.

33608-0

The systainer has already been spoken for by my granddaughter Isla.  We will work together on making trays and boxes to hold her jewellery making tools and supplies.  Once that has been done, I will post photos here.

Minnie, thanks for your personal note on the package and I look forward to meeting you when I am Lebanon in mid-April.

Brice, Isla will, no doubt, create her own art to fit into the four card slots.

I just put my business card in in temporarily to see how "standard" North American businees cards fit (not well) and to give  a hint to Isla.

I have some light weight business card for my ink pet jet printer, I printed out some labels for my RO90 and few other tools that will be upgraded to T-Locs.  I found I needed to trim off about 3/32" (2.5mm).

Yes, I had to trim that amount off.  Also our cards should be 5mm higher.

...

...

Both Isla (age 11) and I are working on the systainer enhancements and I am posting a couple of photos of our "work in progress":

33757-0

33759-1

We are sharing the design.

Isla is doing all  the artwork.

I am doing most (but not all) of the woodwork.

Isla is doing the testing.

Progress is good, but we are re-working a couple of items.

I am certain that I am not doing the artwork.  Isla is far far better at it than I am.

Below is another photo of the board on the lid -it is a removemable clipboard held in place with two squares of Velcro.
