I hear what the WMK w/ LTK people are saying about price, and I dig it. Something that's really cool about this community is that we are vigilant on things like that, to the point that a lot of other people can just check the discussion and quickly get a sense as to whether or not it's a good deal. Given that Massdrop started out with people seeking discounts, that price consciousness and willingness to do the wissenschaft on competitor prices is always going to be a part of what characterizes this community. I like the idea that like minded people have my back on stuff like this, it's part of what makes community e-tailing so attractive when done properly.
When the price difference is this small, I'm fine buying it here, so long as the company's honoring the idea of community driven e-commerce through its practices and not just seeing the community as a group of captive customers whose wealth can be extracted. And that of course is something that still needs to be determined. Drop hasn't always acted recently like they still see a role for the existing community in their plans for ongoing business, but given what they've just said about their plans for communities, I'm ok making a show of good faith. Your mileage may well vary. :)
