Default Thermapens are $96. Don't pay more!

There has been some price confusion brought on by unauthorized Thermapen sellers flooding eBay and Amazon with overpriced Thermapens. Some charging as much as $199. Don’t buy from these sellers! Buy direct from thermoworks.com, or a local authorized dealer. You shouldn’t pay more than about $96 each.

The reference model is $199. It's not that, is it?

No, I've seen what he's talking about. You're correct about the reference model but there are some ebayers selling standard thermapens for various higher prices than Thermoworks; as high as $150 for a lime green listed right now (not even backlit lol).

The seller waits for a naive newb to buy it for $150-200. Seller quickly orders one from Thermoworks for $96, and mails it to the newb. Seller pockets $50+. Completely legal of course, but pretty damn scummy.
