I don't like the situation much either. The manufacturer in question made an error with pricing, instead of admiting they did wrong they simply said gave Unique the option to sell at that price, HOWEVER, we would be paying the difference.
So figure, we would have went chapter 11 in covering our orders on the 580, cause they woln't offer the price protection for us on our orders for we had so many at the lower price.
As to why you were not notified in my absence the past week, well thats an internal problem here that just led me screaming at someone...possibly getting fired for it in reterospect.... SO, lets hope that doesn't happen... and that maybe one day we can do business again.
I don't blame you on this one, just Unique was put in the hard place cause of a larger company not attempting to fix its mistake.
You all will note some place are still honoring there prices, beware the grey market. No 580's have really shipped yet, and I would worry where the flash is coming from at that price if its "USA."
