Difference: ~11 Euros for me.
Other differences: The first offers text-to-speech and 1 yr warranty, the second no text-to-speech and 2 yrs warranty.
Something I missed?
Currently you are right.
Arta Tech lowered their price for M92 dramatically two weeks ago and started to advertise here with their "naked device" price. Long time before we already offered Onyx ereaders to fair prices.
Our wholesale prices keep to be unchanged and moreover increased in last months.. We had finaly to pay Onyx in USD in time where Euro lost more than 10% to USD. Thus we had to pay 10% more for last batches, but we keep the prices in store stable.
Our price politics is actually quite transparent. For less solvent buyers we offer quantity discounts, student discounts and in the course of several months you could get shipping free worldwide.
Privately I spend a lot of my time supporting Onyx users in forums. But now I see folks here talking about whose store offers cheaper products now.
I don't know. Perhaps other competitors are right. Why bother when you can just buy a good SEO stated and already build-up domain, take a build-up product offer slightly lower prices than competitors and spent more time with enjoying life and family.
Shall someone else care about Onyx users? I don’t think so. I really feel responsible for products, sold in our store. This is why we don’t offer low cost stuff. I have a dream to be a part of creation process of products, which could fit to all needs of professional users.
I really appreciate those customers, whose decision is based not only on idea to look for discounters, but also means to support and give thanks with their purchase to a seller, who proves with his activity , that he is really dedicated to his customers.
