p2-updatePanasonic P2 cards are nothing other than 4 SD cards side by side plus a raid controller chip…!  So if you take four 16G SD (64G) class 6 cards at £31 each = £124 then add PCB, raid chip etc, £40 plus the P2 casing and tooling £60 you are looking at a total of £224 top’s add 100% profit you are looking at £448 .
