  1. Thx for the link to an out of stock item .. Yes.. I clicked the link as soon as you posted it… Pre-order it? No thx.. Monoprice will likely have a less costly option prior to “their” availability

    1. Ummm… It’s been announced but is not yet shipping. It’s a new product, not a sold out product. The link will let you be among the first to receive this new product when it hits the market, if it interests you.

      MDN – thanks for the breaking news about a new product.

  2. Surprised that people are complaining about it being $40. Apple charged $30 for the 30 pin dock. Gear4 being first to market (if they do end up being first to market) with an in demand product will of course allow them to charge a premium price.

    Sounds like some of the complainers could have a successful Kickstarter campaign if they think they can bring one out for less than $20.
