    I'm going to contact the people at sps house, I'll try to find out if I can get some quantity discount on those, better than 90$ perhaps. You all need to know, freight from taiwan is expensive, and I have to pay duties on everything I bring in. All these costs will have to be factored into my final price, plus the effort for brokering the deals has to pay me something, even if its really small like the screens I've been selling to you guys. I'll post again when I hear back from them.
    Thanks

    Ok, I have made contact with sps house, and according to them, they would have never quoted a price of 90$ for one. That's about the absolute best price I can get at a large quantity. What I can do is this. If I can get enough interest shown, above 30 people who want one and can pay immediately, I can probably do them for ???$ each? what does keypower sell them for... I'm sure I can beat them, but I need to make a little money on these or it's not worth my time!

    These would be the exact same unit as the keypower
    KP-DX 250H
    ATX (style) 250Watts

    DC to DC Power Supply.

    Somebody post what keypower will sell them for, I'll tell you all what I can do.

    Thanks everyone,

    Oh, and this contact at sps house doesn't know of any B.F. Lee working there. 90$ is an impossible number for anyone to resell these at. People who are definitely interested, please post here. If there is enough response, I'll do this.
    Thanks,
    Dave

    I got a response from SPS, saying about $100 per unit, if we get 20+ units. That MIGHT still be a good deal, compared to the prices of keypower, which I believe is more than $150 NO MATTER WHAT...

    I am interested in one unit for myself. Please count me in.

    Thanks, dscustoms.

    Here's the problem. If I get them for 100 each, I have to pay freight charges, taxes, duties, import fees, customs fees, blah blah blah. That'll bring the final cost that I would have to charge up to 150-160$ anyways. Everyone seems to think that you can just buy one from taiwan for 100$, it doesn't work that way. It'll cost you 60 bucks to get it in three days if you could reach that price point anyways. If people are willing to pay 150$ for these, I think I can make it work, but I'll have to get a really good response, and payment from as many people as possible to prove that it's worth MY time to do this. Start posting, and start contacting me.

    Thanks

    I would try to 'get the message out'. It seems that I am always running into interested people, yet very few get on these lists. Maybe another post somewhere will do the trick, i dunno.

    I am interested. Let me know what kind of prices we are talking about, realisticlly.
