We have been the main supplier of Amiga hardware for 15 years and we have recently noticed in the last few years there are a lot of hobbyist / part time resellers emerging. A lot of the hardware they are selling is not of commercial quality. Of course this is fully understandable as it is assembled by "bedroom" sellers. What concerns us is that with the lower quality standards, the hardware also has high price points. The market prices have gone up a lot in the same period of time that hobbyist / part time sellers have starting supplying to our community.
To counteract this problem, we are producing a dozen quality Amiga hardware product lines in the next few months with low pricing. We hope this will restore quality levels in the marketplace and reduce price inflation of Amiga products we all need for our hobby.
