Hardware Lock Price Rise?

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that the hardware lock has increased in price from $69.95 to $114.95 in a very short space of time. What has accounted for this large price jump please?

the hardware lock use to be $50

 

for X7 it went to $69

 

so now its $115 :( :(

 

I know CA doesn't like hardware locks but this price leaping is ridiculous

 

since I am now retired I may have to give serious consideration to having X8 be my last upgrade

 

while I can afford the cost - I just find it very annoying for such price leaping

its plain and simple gottcha grabbing :( :( :(

Don't use it then. We haven't needed them for a while, so the price jump is probably due to the fact that they don't buy them in bulk any longer. The $$ gets passed on to those that think they still need them.

Joey:

 

yes, my partner and I still think we need the hardware lock

 

many, many reasons for this decision about preferring the hardware lock

 

so yes, if the hardware lock gets too expensive we will have to make more decisions

Lew,

I prefer to use the hardware also lock as well and find this an unusually large increase.

 

Have a great week end,Ken

I agree Lew.

Joey, bulk buying would not likely account for nearly doubling the cost of the lock.

CA Administration can tell us why?

Wouldn't that be bad if every software had a lock after you purchase their product? Windows Office, Forte, Amason Prime,etc. CA is a profit based company and sells at "What Ever We Will Pay"
