2405 price up again...?

    How can the price of an item in stock keep fluctuating? Surely once stock is obtained at a certain value and the retail price is agreed to obtain a certain profit margin then, irespective of the distributor increaing their prices, prices of stock already bought should remain the same, no?

    This situation with the 2405 here is a bit like petrol prices in the UK. The oil companies announce an increase and immediately the retailers increase the price for supplies they already have...

    The 2405 price doesn't seem to have fluctuated the same elsewhere.

    Not sure on this as I'm not a business man. I think that even though the shop has bought at a low price, if the wholesale price then goes up they need to sell the current [bought at less price] stock at the higher price so they have the funds to purchase more at the higher price.

    Hope that makes more sense to you than it does to me. :D

    Never mind, is back down again today...

    How can it soar from £760 to over £800 for one day then come back down to £733 the next?

    i don't really know what i'm talking about, but maybe they don't have a bunch of them in a warehouse, maybe they order them from another middleman. Maybe they then switched to a cheaper supplier. *shrugs*

    Personally i think the price fluctuations are ludicrous! If i was someone with little knowledge and picked one up and it went down the way it has done, MAN... i'd be hell bent with furious anger, lol! <-- Note: I'm laughing now. :D

    But can you seriously see it during normal use? There is a total of 6,912,000 subpixels on the 2405, im sure 1 isn't the end of the world. Have you tried flicking/massaging it out, or playing fast flickering colours to try and remove it?

    Im sure there will be loads of people interested in this, but your not allowed to sell/buy things on here. The Members Market is for that, which you can't access until you have 250 posts unfortunately.
