Yea I was completely thrown back by the price but you know just as I do, someone here is gonna get it and do the modding to the CrosOver and get it working. I already though of how to get it in there, it's just the fact of executing it. I never start anything though I wait to see how others do it first lol.
Can also look at the bright side! "IF" our pcbs ever went bad, we can pay to get replacements aslong as the panel still functions.
Just to add -
Lets be frank about the price set for this. It's really set due to demand. This has been wanted ever since 120hz.net and the start of these Korean Monitor alternatives.
Now if we break down price.
These monitors originally valued around 300-350 when it first hit the market.
Apple Sold there version with the exact same panel at 1k.
That's about 3x inflation.
Actual cost to produce this is prob 100-150.
Do the math regardless if it's Apple or Our sellers they still see a good revenue in comparison to actual production.
What we as the consumers are left with are only two options pay out to Apple and other companies at 1k+ or go with our Korean alternatives for half the price.
Now with that being said Scribby is literally trying to sell this PCB kit without the panel/housing/Stand at the same price when the monitor first came out.
That PCB Kit if manufactured would cost no less then 50-100 if anything and I'm trying to be generous.
Just astounds me the price set but eh it's his show.Edited by Cloudz00x - 2/9/13 at 4:22pm
