Yeah, first post!!!

Question, I saw on the forum where the price-point was projected to be $200-$210.  As we're getting close to the highly anticipated presale release date, can you confirm those numbers? 

<---- NOOB wanting to start out with a board the can run my whole first year show (from FPP), then still be G2G as part of my system going forward without being dated.  It seems right now that you guys have the best thing going here!

I'm doing the same thing myself. I've planned my whole network with this card in mind. I just hope the presale is soon.

Still need to get the pricing back but $200-$210 is going to be pretty close.

 ;) David has come up with an updated version about annually so while you will be G2G, you will still probably be wanting whatever the newest board David produces next year :-)  (spoken from experience - yes my F16v2 blue beta board without OLED WILL run my show but every new board version David creates - I just have to buy because of the new bells and whistles)

Mark, it is just another FOMO issue like last year.  LOL  I think it is part of the addiction syndrome.

I'm looking into a 1000 pixel order (to save on price per & shipping). At some point, do you stop buying new pixels as much to keep up with the new hardware?

I'm in the same boat, looks like I can do what I need with one board, expansion and differential. I think an F4v2 for the tree by itself will get me through my first year. The F16v3 will allow me the additional elements next year and after that I'll need a 12 step program.
