I remember when I first joined, it didn't take long to get to a point that I realized it was a waste of time to "shop around" on an item that was offered here. Lately, I have to stop myself from just joining and have found that I now instantly go to the discussion link on the drop due to the fact that there has been quite a few times someone has already found out you can get it cheaper on amazon (and get it in 2 days). I feel Massdrop used to be the kind of company that if they had their costs go up on an item, especially if it were one of the most popular, re-occurring items that they actually kept in house now, they would've let the community know that future drops of the item would be more expensive due to the fact of costs, or a change in the item. Now, I see the prices went up on something that was said to be "in stock", none the less. I would think prices would go down on an item after selling 15,000, not go up. I understand manufacturing costs change, but when prices go up with no warning on an item said to be "in stock" (especially when Massdrop is usually a couple months to ship if they don't have them already bought, paid for, and sitting on a shelf), it makes me feel a little uneasy. Also, I will go ahead and say that if they did come out and say the price was going to change, I definitely missed it and my bad on the last half of the comment.
