I'd be satisfied with at least some choice from Happ. You get black handled....or black handled.

Yeah, I'm really glad I bought mine when they were "cheap" as well.  $129 is a terrible price and not at all worth it.

When I first discovered video connect they were $9.99
But I got mine on Ebay along with a heavy barrel and time soldiers board...I think...2 SNK rotary boards whatever they were.  The whole auction was $35 or something and included 3 LS30's (one for parts, a bit bent up) and the 2 motherboards, a bezel, manuals.
That's when I started designing the first rotary interface.

As I said above... Mine were $25.00 however their website listed them for $15.00. They told me it was outdated and they were $25.00 now. Who was I to argue. Anyone else have a crooked experience with videoconnect?

VideoConnect must be making so much money off of these that they don't care about their other customers.

I must have been lucky because I had a great experience with them.  A few weeks ago I called up and ordered two LS-30s at $59 each.  I had them in hand in 4 days.

I'll bet he stops making money on them real quick, with this pricing.  Just watch, it'll go back down to $79 in a few weeks.

I don't know if this is true, but he said they had less than 20 left and that was it.

I ordered 2 LS-30 from Video Connect and one of them was bad.  They refused to pay the return shipping.   My guess is that they are almost out of stock and what you are getting is the bottom of the barrel (probably the broken one I sent back.)

got both of mine for $45 shipped.  Just shop around, they aren't the only game in town.
