"there is always some risk with a kick starter by definition"
It's not a Kickstarter, it's a crowdfunding project on Indiegogo. This is more than a semantic difference; IGG projects are always less safe because the site's practices are less rigorous and - let's be blunt - less honest than those of Kickstarter. The worst of it is IGG providing a "flexible funding" option, where backers have their cash taken whether or not the project meets its goal. This has led to IGG being a natural magnet for scams and vapourware, as the scammer doesn't even have to convince $10,000 worth of idiots to trust them before seeing a return.
Not all Indiegogo projects are scams, and I really hope the Vega+ isn't one of them. I might even buy one once they hit retail if the reviews are good. But I'd never back an IGG project, and I won't trust anyone who runs one until their product does go to retail.
