After ebay + paypal fees and shipping they're not really overcharging a whole lot.

He can charge whatever the hell he wants, there's no set market price for these since he's importing these from Korea.

might be surprised a PC case shipped across the states from Wis to Fla is well over 60.00

its funny people are moaning about the price of a 900.00 monitor in the states that they can get for 400.00 basically buy 1 get 1 free

This. eBay + PayPal fees add up to approx. 13% of the purchase price.

I know all to well about that frown.gif Usually if its coming in to the states it isn't as bad, but who knows. I want one of the sellers to drop the price and have paid shipping to see what it really costs.

Wish I had about 30K to drop on 100 of them to bulk buy and resell to everyone on here frown.gif

Then people would hate you if they got a dead pixel and you wouldn't swap it out and all that other nasty business. Not worth it. Let the koreans take care of it all for us. tongue.gif

Going to hold out until the market stabilizes on these, some competition from samsungmall should help.

He might be paying more per unit atm for the Crossovers if he isn't buying up tons of them like he must have for the Shimians.

He also may not want to commit to a lot of the Crossovers atm until he sees how well they'll sell. It just makes his job harder dealing with more variance in stock as it is, and he's likely already overwhelmed with all the orders coming in from word of mouth referrals.

I may be totally off base, but it came to mind so tossed it out there.

Even at $20 more, it's a steal, even at $50 more it's a steal. Hell, Bruce paid more than a lot of us ($460 I think?) and he still got an amazing deal on his no matter how you look at it.

I paid $380 for mine, and if they dropped to $300 I wouldn't be upset at all. I got a deal better than anything else I've ever bought, even with that $80 taken into account.

Maybe it's just me but I wouldn't sit on the fence for days and weeks over $20-100 on something like this. I'd grab it and use it and be happy as a pig in slop. biggrin.gif

Can you tell I was never good at waiting until the market for something "bottomed out" before buying? tongue.gif

That's an EMS estimate from Korea Post. For a 10 kg package, the estimate is 112800 won, which is ~$100 USD. That doesn't include any packaging either.

If it weren't for all the OCD people that would buy them and cause me grief, I'd order a pallet of them shipped to me to resell.
post #2030 of 4784
I want one of these -.-

$400 is not too expensive for a 2560 x 1440 monitor but it's still not cheap frown.gif. Also it's almost a gamble for one that can get 60+ hz and have no dead pixels.
