Does anyone know how the $499.99 MSRP price is justified? I don't think that this keyboard can be purchased except through Massdrop, who I assume are asking the manufacturer to make it in the first place.

You really think any MSRP on this or any website can be justified? I saw someone source the parts for a ergodox and came up with $280 or so. This is a custom IC, so should be even cheaper. Bulk parts, testing, test runs, custom IC machine soldered, I would make an educated guess of around $80 per kit in parts and assembly

That seems right. I just find it so strange that this website employs those old retails rhetorics of "~other~ retails would sell it at X amount, but ~we~ are selling it at Y amount." This is custom, that's the point. How can there be a MSRP for a custom ordered product?
