$20 each is a fair price. I bet if someone here were to buy a lot of five
(for less than $80) they could unload 3 or 4 of them here for $20 each
shipped. I'd take one (at least) but have no use for five of them.
The only good time-nut use of these is that some one has already figured
out and documented how to build an ultra-accurate NTP server with them and
has documented the hardware mods needed to upgrade the on-board clock.
They were getting 1/10th uSec performance which is about 20x better than
most people get using a generic PC.
