This looks really good, especially for the price. Just wondering if there are any renders of the bottom?

Unfortunately not, but the bottom is kept minimal with just the slots for the 4 round rubber feet.

Yes. We will send review units to streamers in round 2, so the R2 schedule will be based on that.
