Never a bad idea to wait on a new product if you can hold off the GAS, its a bit easier with the OP-Z as you probably couldn’t even get one even if you wanted one, I have seen second hand units selling almost double the new price!
To be fair, there are 3 or 4 people reporting bugs on the OP-1 forum in the ‘report your bugs’ threads (and 2 of those are faulty batteries)…thats pretty good for a new product, Elektron stuff has had more bugs on launch (and don’t get me started on overbridge!) - as for sample transfer, I wouldn’t say it is any more difficult that my RYTM MK1! I am very confident that sample transfer will soon be simple and over USB as you can see on the app that other pe9ople have already made ‘packs’ (Cuckoo) so I bet a tool exists for authoring these…if it doesn’t someone will fill the gap!
The battery issue is dealt with - pre-release details were incorrect, the ‘official’ advertised product says 6 hours and thats what I get. I have no issue with this as you can easily slip another battery in if necessary, but the USB fast charge gets top about 80% in 30 minutes which is realy useful.
FYI I have had no bugs and have about 20 hours use, there is obviusly lots of room for improvement (and expansion) but I have confidence in TE that there will be a lot added over time and regular updates.
