  • There's reasons for the price, mainly it's this much because it's brand new. As you get more and more produced, then the price can come down. I just got mine in the mail from the KS, and I believe it worked out to about $35/ea.

  • Sparkfun is relying on the community and support they offer to keep you coming back for more parts and assistance. Sure you can buy 10 of them for super cheap on Ebay, but that comes with no support. Sparkfun has guides and people to help you learn and when you have issues. Very few places have that.

    For me, they are just down the road, so I get my parts reliably, and much quicker than I would with Ebay.

  • There's also some technical differences. I think voltage regulators. They are not a complete 1:1.

No public wish lists :(
