Any way I was thumbing through the Gear of the Year issue again last night and noticed their listing for the Logitech Z 5500 speakers and for price it listed was $400.
Now they are listed on New Egg for $289 and I quick search using the MPC product finder found a set for $250. I did check pricegrabber.com and their was one listing for $399 but most entries seemed to be for the $250 to $300 range.
So my question is why did they list the highest price in the magazine insted of giving the midrange price say $280 or a price range like $250-$400 .

We just go with MSRP on the prices because it's consistent and street prices fluctuate. I mean, we've printed features saying "we upgraded this ram for $70" and when the issue comes out RAM costs $150. Plus if we listed a "street" price and a certain reader didn't know where to shop online, we'd be answering a lot of emails about "where did you find that price?" and such.
