I am waiting for my Asus XG Station Pro to be returned from service (just changing a cable) and perhaps I could sell it. But, they are rare and expensive in Europe, so you won't save a lot of money instead of a new one.

Could be tempted @oliverb

You are from the UK?! so we have to act quickly before the Brexit 🙂 Next week I will give an update about what's going on.

Letus know in a weeks time 🙂
Prices in DK is way off at the moment. Tried to get hold of a new one at a decent price from a German located shop. But no shipping outside of DE. And when I finally got in touch with a friend in Berlin, they were sold out :/.... And now it seems out of stock most places. Waiting for stocks to fill up and prices to settle again. Unless I find a good used box meanwhile 🙂

Yes, actually this is the place where I bought my two (my first one, which is in service at the moment because of the cables and the one I am using now):

It's sold out... That's interesting.

@Sone, @eightarmedpet

please check

Asus XG Station For Sale

 We can already "pre"-deal it. Only catch: It can last a couple of weeks (depending on the service to change the power cables).

Hi OliverB,

What is your asking price? note to self - read headline first :/

A couple of weeks is ok - as I'm looking for a good price on a strix 2070 🙂
The 350 mark is bit more than I expected for a used one, even thou its only 3 months old.
I was more around 275€

If eightarmedpet is willing to pay the 350 its his!

Do you btw. have any intel on why they aren't restocking it? I see some shops getting stocks back up again.

@Sone, 350 EUR is a fair price.

My opinion: 275 is way too low for a device that costs 420, is like new, comes in original package, all equipment, invoice and almost full product warranty. Alone the 1,5m cable costs 60EUR. Your price may be discutable when half of the warranty is gone.
So we have no deal :(, but thank you for the timely note.

@eightarmedpet, what do you think?

It may have to do with the fact that many people tend to buy cheaper solutions.

@OliverB

Thank you for the offer anyway. If you see the box price as 420 + 60 for the cable it’s genuine offer. But the box was selling for 369€ most of January in a couple of German shops - and the 60€ cable is included free of charge in the package from factory. So I actually think my offer is decent. But at current rarity someone might want to pay 350 for a used box. Hope you’ll find a buyer - or just return the new one instead, and save the trouble 🙂 
 
And on the other subject, you might be right, it could be true, that ppl headed for less expensive solutions. It could also be because Asus got fined for cartel prices by EU, and they try to limit stocks and drive prices up that way?. There is something wrong with ASUS prices. EVGA and Razer both have almost identical prices in € and $ (if you take into account VAT).

@Sone, This is where my information is very different, it never has been cheaper than 400 EUR anywhere in the part of Germany I am living. (Why should I pay so much if it were cheaper)- I have paid 420 EUR for this one I have now and this is base of my calculation, Of course. Offering a 70 EUR discount (20%) for something that has everything is a valid offer.

Can you provide a link of the 369 EUR Price?

PS: That such things are much more expensive in Europe is old news. You can add 20% to the Dollar-Price for everything.

Fair enough.

I use idealo.de to check prices in Germany (or geizhals, but I prefer idealo). I saw the price in a few different shops, one of them I remember was Saturn.

https://www.idealo.de/preisvergleich/OffersOfProduct/6202067_-xg-station-pro-asus.html

^ You can see the historic price if you click “preisentwicklung”. But yes, the price have for a long time been around 390-400.

Europe have always been +20% (VAT).

USD/EUR fx is 0,88. VAT is ~20% so it should be $330 * 0,88 * 1,20 = €350, not 400 🙂

@Sone, the thread still exists, I couldn't access it :/
The situation is: This Wednesday I will sent back that one case to the vendor, but my wife just have ordered another case from another vendor (this one 402 EUR, but 20 Shipping, which is way too much, they "hide" the real cost of 420 by this way).

So we have another two weeks time to make some decisions 🙂

No worries @OliverB. I’ll wait for prices to settle back to their usual €370 or as I expect an updated version gets released.

I actually found the original price listing from caseking, which is actually one of the trustworthy suppliers I use. But they have discontinued their product listing... ?! (Same as mindfactory)
