That same keyboard now, doesn't come with the screen anymore, and sells for 90 bucks. Identical keyboard but with no lcd, G11. I'm in Canada btw. Their new G19, well over 200 bucks Canadian.....crazy. I used to swear by logitech, but the prices and reliablilty is becoming bothersome.
This remote is not worth 499 bucks. Maybe worth 200 imho. It's very nice, but not that nice.
doubt you'll find it for 200 anytime soon, unless you have a coupon for half off somewhere...
but at the same point, the MSRP isn't what you pay in most cases...for instance, the One has an MSRP of 250, but you can find it from 180-200 no problem.
what a remote is worth to YOU <> what logitech should charge. I expect you'll see it more in the $350 range in a month or so and eventually in the $330 area
