If they toss out the old one (because the hardware doesn't work with the new firmware) and send you a new one (at the new price) then the numbers make some sort of sense. I have a suspicion that the price quoted is pretty close to the single piece price for a brand new unit.

This might not be the most customer friendly approach, but a business strategy that can be selected. Part of it will certainly be standard overhead anyway. It would be nice if they had a curtesy-price thought, and see it as a for of PR thing to keep customers happy.
