Plus shipping both ways and you better put another spare in your inventory... Repair service starts at $75-100 depending upon device.

& I was trying to make a case for your device!!

I think Netonix will fix a blown POE port for $25.

I look at as, if you have a short on a port Chuck costs the price of one
card, $20 and the netonix is a whole box, even if you RMA it...  Yes the
initial cost is steep, but the future cost/time is priceless...

Thanks for the reply...

I was looking at things more simply...
  To protect 10/12 ports we are talking about $200/$250 give or take
  Switch value may be in similar ball park

It would be nice to see these in more of the $10 range..

I completely understand the production qty run vs cost.

Maybe, just a suggestion, we (as a group) can commit to a per-purchase qty, if that will help in bring the cost down.

We have been shipping for months.
The cost of having a Netonix port repaired is more than the cost of the
And then there is the labor and downtime and other intangible expenses
involved in blowing a port.

The prices are lower if you buy from one of my distributors.  I don't
encourage anyone to buy off my ecommerce site and pay full list price. That
site is only there to generate sales for distributors.

All of my products have prices based on cost plus margin.  Same formula
across the board pretty much. I try to have unique products you can't get other places. If volume increases on a product, I sometimes adjust the price down due to the fact that my costs come down. For example, if I am buying 1000 surge protector PCBs, I may be paying $1 for each. But if I am
only buying 100 of them it may be $2.50.

I recently adjusted the cost down on my 8 circuit tower surge protector for exactly this reason. Volume picked up, I worked on sourcing and buying and was able to drop the list price considerably and still maintain my margins.

Hi Chuck,

Great to hear about the new product, the POE Fuse.

Question & critique.
   When are these going to be available ?
   We would like to see these priced a bit more aggressive...
(At the current pricing, the cost of fusing multiple ports appears to be
exceeding the cost of 'poe switch' it is protecting ! )
