Good UK Price

Many of us in the UK have been disappointed that SONY haven't reduced their UK price to follow the USA. Some good news for those who live near St Albans is that HiSpek have the PRS-T1 in their sale at £99. Only available in store and while stocks last. I picked one up yesterday and am delighted with it so far.

Now that's a good price. I was limited by amazon gift vouchers myself though on the other hand I ordered the same time as you and amazingly it arrived before Christmas!

I'm returning my other one and ordering from here... Atleast if I get it to Finland too...

Even cheaper?

If the shipping is not too much, then you can get a T1 from B&H shipped to you for less.

You can also order a cover at the same time. I suggest the light cover.

B&H has been in business a long time and is very reliable.

Looks like shipping is good 40-50 dollars for those. I'm kind of against paying half or cost of item in shipping costs...

Not sure how you come to that conclusion.

T1 124.99
NY Tax @ 8% (?) 10.00
Shipping 40.00
--------
174.99
UK VAT on $174.99 35.00
Any duty to be paid ?
-------
$209.99
Exchange rate on credit card will probably be around $1.50/£1

So total will be approx £139.99, and that's assuming there is no duty imposed.
Therefore it's still cheaper to buy here in the UK.

You only really save on buying stuff from the US when you can collect it yourself. The shipping and duty/VAT on import usually negate any savings you might make. And the mistake that most people make is that the US price does not include tax whereas the UK one does.

Did you order it? The black one appears to be out of stock now, but the red and white are still available for £107.50 (includes free delivery to Finland too).

Yes, shipped at least by the site. Not sure where they ship from, might have to pay VAT, but it's still cheapest I found at the moment...

Wanted black for most contrast so it would look best, at least I suppose it would work so ;D

Will report when it arrives.
