What I don't understand is the massive mark up considering this board was announced at USD $399 so priced under the Formula
Just wondering if anyone has found any viable retailers/source for this?
PCCG had it in stock, nothing now
PLE has an ETA of next week, but not sure how reliable when I'm seeing other published ETAs stretching into 2021
i'm waiting for newegg US / amazon US to stock this... if it's less than our marked up local pricing I'll import one
Scorptec now has an ETA of 1/1/2021
I was holding out on purchasing this board until there was confirmation of a new GPU heading my way... oof!
SO I just ordered this board from PLE.
They have stock arriving in to WA Warehouse on 23-11-2020 and kindly changed my order to ship by startrack from There direct to QLD instead of waiting for a shipment to arrive in Victoria (Heatherton)
This should mean I will have it before next weekend and can get it installed.
Happy Days and thank you PLE
Excited to see it run!
see how it compares to the formula. id like to play with one to see how it compares to the impact
Did you confirm the 23/11/2020 ETA or are you relying on their website?
Confirmed on the phone this morning. They have larger quantity coming in to WA - the Vic ones are all sold out.
Thanks for the heads up - I might do the same. There seems to be an option to choose air shipping from WA warehouse.
So weird that Scorptec are still saying 1/1/21. I'm confused.
Almost sounds like a placeholder date TBH
It moves around though - it was 23/12, then moved to 1/1. It's weird.
Looks like ETA on this has shifted as well
It appears to have changed to today from yesterday.
Fingers,legs eyes and toes are all crossed....
Doing the same. It's the only bit of my planned build/upgrade that hasn't shipped yet. Hope to be able to build over the weekend!
It was showing as $801 the other day - now logged in it just shows $849.
Such a rip off in Aus. The board is listed @ Newegg US at the moment ETA 27/11 - not available for order right now, but it won't let you send it to Australia direct. It would need to be done through a mail forwarder.
But US$399+50 USD (being generous) shipping + GST and we are still being ripped off massively.
I won't be supporting Asus Australia or local shops at these prices. Definitely ordering from overseas either using a mail forwarder or direct once they allow it. Disgusting. We all need to not buy from Australia at these rip off prices.
I've placed an order for the Dark Hero from PLE last week and the stock ETA kept pushing back each day. Contacted the warehouse and was informed they don't have a solid ETA for this and could stretch to mid to late December, so I've now cancelled my order.
dimmo is right. might be better off importing rather then let the local distributor profit from this
not the news i wanted to hear
interestingly enough, NZ stores seem to have them in stock.
