Kinetic R1 in 2020

I want to upgrade my wheel on trainer to a direct drive trainer and the Kinetic R1 is the most appealing as it is a great price and has the ability to rock but there are a lot of negative reviews and some say it does not like to work with zwift.
Has anyone purchased one recently and if so how is it? Have they fixed the connectivity issues with firmware updates and does it work well with zwift?

No recommendation for it: https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2019/12/kinetic-r1-smart-trainer-review.html

If you can live with the inaccuracy and the noise I suppose it is alright but I would read all the comments and ask questions there…

Thanks for linking that. After reading I think my best bet would be a wahoo kickr core as it’s only a bit more and supposedly has a much better reputation, thats assuming I can find any in stock

Assuming in the US…4 in stock: https://mikesbikes.com/products/kickr-core-power-trainer?variant=31126673883205

Wahoo’s website says 1-2 week wait…

A couple of light and no use Kickr’s on Craigslist if you live in Central Texas for just a few bucks more…
