So now they cost the same as the SA UPB switches right? They probably had to to ever get rid of them.
didn't they just announce a price reduction a week or two ago? or is this just a formal announcement of the old rumor?
When the rumor first hit Cocoon I went out and tried to find $45 UPB switches....of course I failed.

Anyone find any of these things at these prices yet?

If you are looking for switches under $45, then you spelled it wrong... it is spelled I N S T E O N :D
As far as the PCS switches go, we are a distributor for them and as a distributor, we can't sell them retail. Our dealers however can.

I would suggest going to Tech-Home (a frequenter of this board too) to get your PCS switches if you're interested. Brian is currently in the process of adding these items to his site.

Don't expect a $45 price though. These switches will still be more expensive than the SA or HAI switches but you'll also have options for up to a 2400 watt UPB dimmer switch!
