Yup, the mini LEDs started a few years back with LGs nano equipped panels. I’ve had one since 2019, and it is a decent improvement over a traditional LED backlight. Not as big an improvement as Apple would have you believe, but it is better. Local dimming, and mini LEDs are a much better combo, but not all mini LED panels have it. Of course local dimming doesn’t solve everything, and backlight bleed between the zones is a thing.

Those $200-400+ Hermès leather AirTag items currently unavailable.

I assume that initial run sold out to the 7-12 dipshits who spend $400+ on luggage tags.

Another article cites possible quality issues.

At those prices - and something so small/simple - it’s tough to imagine any sort of quality snag.

There’s a thread at MacRumors where someone says theirs basically came all apart. How?!

Normally I’d say “hey, you get what you pay for”, but damn. $250+ for a little sliver of leather that only does one simple task should be free of any and all “quality issues”.

I didn’t think this would be a huge seller, but you never know. If enough iffy ones got out in the world, they’d want to fix them. Nothing worse than your $449 luggage tag (holding a $29 item) going south.

The horror.

Pretty much. Hard to get too torn up over some situations.
