    Plus, they seem to be taking orders "by invitation" only. Kind of suspicious...

    Naw, I got an invitation because I signed up for product notifications a LONG time ago. It seems to have taken them quite a while to finally get this to market and I see this as a way to give first dibs on the production units. I think there may have been a discount as well, I forgot because I deleted the invitaion. I was curious what the final price would be and it was just way more than I was willing to spend.

    So I perusing the interwebs and came across this: http://www.engadget.com/2010/08/17/keyport-review/. I think it's interesting, but I don't have enough keys for this to be awesome. Also, I would want my truck key in this but it's got a chip in the head of it.

    I saw the Keyport back when it was really expensive. Now that it is reasonable I am going to order one tommorow. I have been looking for a way to get rid of my large ignition key. Thanks for the post!

    EDIT: Just ordered it!

    No sweat! I spoke to one of the guys over the phone and he was very nice and helpful. He asked how I heard about it and thought it was interesting when I said EDCF. Apparently he has talked to Jon before when developing the product and had a lot of nice things to say.

    I just re read the OP. You can put your chipped ignition key in the keyport. THe chip takes up one spot so you have five instead of six.

    I recently got a keyport too. It's fricken awesome. I just have no idea what to do with my car fob now :/. The supplied lanyard is too long for my taste.

    i thought about getting it. was also on the mailing list since the beginning. I originally bought the one from jon first and am still using that. I would like the slide but at 80 bucks I just can't justify it. maybe 80 bucks with the car keys and the remote door unlock button as well.

    Pricing like that would be near impossible. I think the hook that got me was that they were trying to charge a ridiculous 250 for this. When they dropped the price to 100 I was hooked :/

    i have not ordered one yet..when i first saw the keyport i said no way,,,know i am think it couuld be a good thing..they also have or will have a thumb drive for the key port also..that is hot too..the web site states so other future plans or add-ons to..so this may become a must have...

    and for once even my wife likes it...

    one thing i'm not liking is the; if lost recovery they have...if some finds a keyport and goes to the website listed on the keyport..enters the serial numbers,,and gets a address to mail it back to the owner...nahhhhhhh..now the finder has the owners address and has the keys too... i dont like that...

    We are working hard to bring the price down without moving manufacturing overseas. That is a real challenge for a product that has these tolerances and requires a bit of customization.

    One thing that I would appreciate your opinion on:
    If you got Keyport Blades from your locksmith instead of direct from Keyport, and therefore the transaction was broken down into two parts
    ~ $49 for the Keyport, Nodes, and Lanyard from Keyport
    ~ $30 to $60 for the keys, USB, LED, etc. from your locksmith
    Would you look at the transaction differently? i.e. Would $49 seem more reasonable even if you had to buy the Blade separately?

    I know that you guys posted your comments a while ago, but you should take a look at Keyport these days (mykeyport.com). Lots going on, and if you're still interested, I'm happy to tell you a bit about how we came up with the pricing.

    Regards,
