    $290? They are €130... Think eBay is better for scalping.

    That difference in price is perfectly justified - because you'll be lucky to get an official one without religiously clicking on the official maker's website over and over again hoping you might get lucky. It isn't easy. Also, unlike the clones, you can update the FW.

    On the other hand, the clones do everything this does and cost a quarter of the price.

    I was quite surprised to see how many of the the clones have been sold on eBay by various sellers (mostly from China) This guy really could have made a fortune from these if he'd tried to mass-market it from day one. The sales are staggering...

    Technical genius? Yes.
    Good businessman? Not in a million years.

    The price seems fine to me for an official one.

    No the price is not justified @arnoldlayne , if the seller would have 1 unit which he used himself an now wants to move along, fine, ask what you want.

    But if the seller has 2 new units he clearly bought them just to flip them and make a profit...
    That is just a no go as his 2 units could have went to 2 other users who missed the sale at the official website and who would enjoy them like they should be ;)

    I have to agree, scalping of any sort of isn't cool. The price isn't fine because if scalpers would stop fecking buying them then people who legit want to own one wouldn't have such a hard time finding them.
    I know the creator opened himself up to this, but let the Chinese make clones and have that as an option. Being a total dick by buying up the limited supply of official ones just to resell for higher prices is a dirty scalper move. Doesn't matter if you're selling it for a 5 dollar profit or a 500 dollar profit.

    If you pay 290 dollars for a pcb with some chips on it you are out of your mind
    That thing is like at most 30 to 50 bucks in parts

    So are most things you buy. The cost is in the R&D.

    Go and buy just the parts and see if it works.

    Supply and demand is a bitch when you're broke.

    Morality aside, you shouldn't trash a guy's thread just because you don't agree with his price.
