Hi all,
anybody has any experience with that:

100,000’s - 1,000,000’s) it’s going to be a bit pricey.  Frankly, to get the 
price to drop to half ($125), you’d probably have to get 10x-100x quantity 
increase.  I know because I face the same thing when trying to produce my 
boards.  Assembly will typically double the cost of the board + components.

Just saying, it'd be nice if the price could be much lower, as it's way beyond 
my budget at this point in life.    Realized after posting that it doesn't

profit margin.  Without knowing those numbers, can't accurately speculate.  But 
I do think that in some cases, more *total profit* could be had by a lower
