How our pre-order pricing model works
We have received many questions related to our pre-order models. In this article, we would like to detail how it works, key philosophies on how we set our pricing.
The earlier you commit, the better your price!
As a token of appreciation for community members and all our early supporters, we allow our community to allocate early in the process. The earlier you commit, the lower the price is. The price of our products will be going up as it nears shipment as the production capacity is limited. So is the quantity. Check the graph we made for our Spectrum OLED to see how the price of one product progresses over time.

Additionally, once the product ships, it will be likely to be available from major retailers worldwide with a higher price to correspond with wider channel, faster shipping and after-service support. Thus, early supporters and community members will be rewarded with the best possible pricing!
A clear example of this scenarios is to look at our Spectrum 4K 144Hz. At the early time when it was launched in 2020, many early customers were able to grab their Spectrum as low as $549. Now that price is not available in anywhere because Spectrum 4K 144Hz already hit the mass production phase. The Spectrum 4K 144Hz is currently sold at $949 on our website and retail places such as Amazon.
You pay for nothing extra!
After developing Project Spectrum, we learned that everything which might be unnecessary should be detachable. In the case of the Spectrum gaming monitor, approximately 46% of community voters requested that the monitor stand should be sold separately because they want to use a VESA arm they already have. This way we can make sure everyone gets the best value of Spectrum.
Flagship killer pricing
As a community-powered brand, we are doing a lot of reserve-engineering on gaming hardware to find the best and optimal solutions for new product production. That, in combination with the philosophy "you pay nothing extra" helps give us leverage to decide early pricings which are way more affordable than any competitors in the market.
Refundable at any time
After you pre-order our products, your pre-order amount is fully refundable up until your product has been produced for you. For other refund policies, check out our Terms & Conditions.
