    I'm waiting for the 2TB PCIe NVMe m.2 SSD Samsung just released to drop below $700 so I can put it in my Vaio Z Canvas. Don't think that will happen any time soon.

    If you are from the US and you order from the UK; You will not have to pay UK VAT or US VAT, are import tax or custom tax or duty fees. You will get the item very cheap.
    If you are in the UK and you order from the US: then your in big trouble. I bought a water filter straw from the US once for $40 (I think back then) and I had to pay import tax and a custom fee. It totalled to around $75 for a $40 item.

    Ordering a $5000 Eurocom SkyX9E3 laptop from the US/Canada can cost you an extra $1800 to your door if you ordered it from the UK. Eurocom will charge you $1000, then an extra $800 in UK fees when it arrives in to local sorting office in the UK. If you order the same system from GoldMax (AKA EU Eurocom) you will save probably an extra $50, but you will not have to pay fees if you ordered it from the UK. So in reality; If you live in the UK your screwed.

    If you are in the UK and you buy a TV for an example you automatically will pay 20% VAT at the counter. If you buy a bottle of vodka in the UK you also pay extra duty tax. There is road tax, council tax, salary/income tax, national insurance tax (contributions, a posh word for "tax"), fuel tax, bedroom tax, inheritance tax, sell your house? you get taxed, You watch TV or have a TV in your home then you pay TV licence, which is a professional word of "TV TAX"! EVERYTHING HAS TAX IN THE UK! :mad:

    *SIGH*...:oops:
    I just took a breather... #RantOver

    I got carried away. But the moral of this advice is that. If you live outside the UK and you order from the UK, then you don't really need to worry about anything :). Just make sure the UK sellers subtracts the VAT off your item that you want to buy. The seller will need to fill out a form. Also if the sellers wants, they are eligible to pay extra out of their own pockets to insure the item. But that's up to them.

    The US doesn't have a VAT, by the way.

    Thanks for clarifying this. I already knew this. I put: "you don't have to pay UK VAT or US VAT" to give a better understanding to buyers or sellers that think that it does exists. I should have stated that US VAT does not exist too. Thank you bud.

    It got political somewhere and that has its own, dedicated checkbox:
    There's forums for that, but this isn't one of them.
