A little bit of a sad update from BennVenn...
An update on the Current and next batch of Lynx LCD kits:
The last of the pre-orders are due to ship in the next couple of days.
At the last minute our LCD supplied raised the price of the Japaense spec LCD panels we used almost $20. This ate up all profits from this batch and after store & paypal fee's we probably lost a couple of dollars per order.
With the global shortage of Silicon, our factory said prices will be going up as stock decreases.
Chinese spec LCD's are around $10 cheaper than the Japanese so we'll be sampling them to see if any are suitable. The last 4 brands we've sampled have various contrast issues so they weren't an option.
Going forward, the release of the remaining kits later this week will be price adjusted. We've just asked for confirmation on pricing on the panels for the next batch. If they continue to rise, we may not do another batch until this silicon crisis is over.
We'll keep you posted!
His online store might still have some kits left over if you're lucky, so if your Lynx is in need of an upgraded screen, get it quick.
