It's not worth it. Even if you find the right panel, none of the Rift games will work without major hacking.

Just get DK2.

Rozsnyo have just put out batch 3 of the RiftUp kit. Still nearly 200 available.
It might take a while before they get over their minimum order before they go
into production. RiftUp might be still viable with sdk version 0.3.x stuff.

http://riftup.vrunion.com says 158 are remaining but it could still take some time till the batch is started. I think the price is what's holding it back. Unless you are really short on cash and/or live in a country that will add substantial customs fees and taxes, DK2 would be the better buy.

Maybe if they added a group buy option to say get an extra 100 number of units sold by whatever date then the price could be reduced to $300 or something. That might help a few on the fence about purchasing.

I had no problem with my early bird indiegogo at $200 including free shipping but I wouldn't buy at $340. Don't get me wrong the drop-in solution is killer but for $340 I would expect something like the LG 6" 2560x1440 LCD when they are available.
