Following earlier replies, in the UK, buying grey imports can raise warranty issues, possibly import duty and tax on top of listed prices.

Also returning goods might be a problem..postal and insurance costs for example.

Some USA or Hongkong suppliers I'm aware of claim to have a "presence" in the UK,but this can be just a postbox facility.

I 'm not saying you can't get a bargain from such suppliers but you have to check the "small print" in their terms and conditions, delivery arrangements, returns policy etc.
