Vs I don't know $182.95 from newegg not including the $20 rebate. I'm not sure when you bought your ip5000 for $244. $244 sounds like the price without VAT and shipping. While us residents don't have to pay vat, there is a shipping charge which tends to be about $10 bucks a kilo or so.

The current price is £152.95 (£130.17 without vat)
The current price is $278.37 ($236.88 without vat)
Shipping is £33.71 or £163.88 total
Shipping is $61.35 or $298.25 total

I see it as being USD$54.25 more than what you said, and $115.30 than it shipped localy. I have no idea if US residents have to pay duty. But i'd like to know how you managed to save $54.25.

:blah:I live locally to them and had a small credit coming back to me from a return. The normal price with shipping would be $15.00 making the entire purchase at $259.95.

What is this problem about ?
All Canon inkjets do come with CD/DVD adapters for printing.
I supposed you missed what the plastic engine with two disk shapes in the printer box where made for. I missed that on my first Canons of later series and understood it some months later. :-)

Ummm, not in The Americas, or at least North America. None of them do. In fact you can make a buck or two buying those plastic sleds and selling them on e-bay, even if you live in Europe or Asia. They seem to be fetching us$30-$50.

Trust me I looked for everything in the box.. and no plastic sleds, no 120mm to 80mm adapter, and the printer is programed to prevent CD printing.

I'm told it's a license issue, not paying it to Phillips, which I imagine is why we get away with spending £36 (£26) for a base model where the same fetches £65ish in the uk for the base model. Either that or someone desided that 65 was a good number regardless of the currency exchange rate:-)
