Has anyone form the UK noticed the price difference between the UK Canon i9950 and the same printer in the US i9900. They can get this printer for around 230 GBP ($463). I have searched around and this is 460 GBP ($800) in the uk.



This is an absolute scandal and is no wonder why people risk smuggling in goods.

Your comments please.

can't you take a little trip to "site see" in new york, buy the printer there...and then bring it home in your suitcase???

i'm guessing that is considered smuggling? wat they are doing with the prices is robbery though!!!

The comparison is not quite that bad. $463 is 251.52 GBP at today's Interbank rate (although you and I would get a poorer rate than that). The US price is almost certainly without tax, so if you you add on the VAT, it comes to about 295 GBP.

You're right though - it's still a lot less than 460 GBP! Unfortunately this is typical of most computer, photographic and just about any other products :-(
