This is stupid.

Usually, if people can spend $150, they can spend $300. It's not that much of a difference (and plain dumb to think that would serve as a basis for "snobbery").

They should be clear about the features and limitations and buy the one will work for them and not worry about the $150 difference in price.

It's not as "good a deal (value)" as you made it out to be.

Many people also don't value their time.

People can do whatever they want.

The "4x" is nonsense. You only get 2.5 (you said 3x earlier!) if you use the discounted Gearbest price.

The similar (likely, better) units are the 520 (the slightly more-expensive 530 is a better choice) and the Wahoo Bolt and they cost $250.

???? It's not about me buying one.
