Table notes:

  • ELSA's Gladiac still hasn't shipped and is on backorder. Also, the price on the street has actually risen from the expected $189 to $199 and only one store I found was pre-selling.
  • The Prolink PixelView card might be a pain to get a hold of as they're not carried in many stores that I know of in the US.
  • The SUMA board will be unavailable to many of us because of limited availability. SUMA also claims to be shipping a faster SDR version upon release.
