Yesterday I posted to the list in response to a message and among other
things suggested going with Crystal Fontz instead of Matrix Orbital
primarily because of price.

Welp, it turns out the prices I listed were way off. Here's what Rob
Hansen said yesterday after he spotted that:

The pricing is all wrong, by the way. You can get a full graphic 122
x 32 in a 4x20 size with keypad interface for $79. 4x20
alphanumeric with keypad is $75. Without keypad it is $55.

He didn't mention *where* to get these prices, but I assume it's either
through direct-order from Matrix Orbital or through a different
distributor than the ones I sampled.

So they're still pricier, but not by nearly as much. If you forego the
keypad support, they're right in line with the other serial displays.

Dammit, I hate trying to stay "objective". It's damned near impossible
when vendors give you free samples.

Oh well, my apologies to Matrix Orbital for that little smeg-up.
