Honestly? you would buy it if it was 225, but not 300?
I don't think it's about expecting it to be under $300. Personally for me, all instruments have an "absolute" value, but there is also a "relative" value that I arrive at by factoring its usefulness to me personally. In reality the absolute value of the Monotribe is probably like $300, but since its apparent features do not precisely line up with my current needs, its personal value to me is lower (about 200-225).
The reason there's a difference is because once you reach the $300 mark, it starts to open up other things I could get for that amount of money that complements the direction my setup is going in right now, like pedals, or even modular/modules. On the other hand if I was into modding, its personal value to me might even exceed $300. Of course there are other reasons too why you might find it more valuable. It all depends on your setup.
