What most people that know nothing about business haven't realized about my TRE's and some of the other products that I have is that they are manufactured products in the USA and at USA labor prices.
This applies to all electronics...
(and everything else that is a manufactured product)
All electronics are inexpensive when sold as parts only.... the cost in them to be purchased by the end user is mostly labor.... But there is more cost than some of you would like to think that there is.
Internal electronic parts
Labor to assemble
Shipping on all the assembly parts
Labor to package
Ink for printer
Plastic bags for packaging
Header cards for packaging
Labor to tech support properly
Lifetime warranty to replace as needed
Then for adequate marketing when needing to reach a lot of people fast, there needs to be a structured % markup at each level... Otherwise, nobody would want to carry the product.
Everyone needs to make money...
Nobody wants to work for free as none of you would either....
For ZX10R.net members, I would be happy to offer a subtantial discount...
