Amazon now offers the G1X in Germany (albeit through a market place vendor) at an outrageous price of €839!

I checked Amazon UK, France and Spain, all more than 800€. I bought mine in a shop in Barcelona that still has the G1X for 729€.

Many report simple electronics is not honest.
Typical too good to be true deal.

When it does come to redcoon..,its another matter.

They are not perfect since once I ordered some cell phone auriculars.., I waited ..,and waited..,and finally I ordered instead a battery when I realized the headphones were not about to arrive.
But I order other stuff from redcoon and things went smoothly.
Another story from simply electronics.

How come that simple electronics ( a company based in Hong Kong ) , has every camera cheaper than the competition ?
It does not add up.

Look at more simple electronics reviews.

BJA424 does sujest that simply electronics is based in the UK.
This is not true.

Look here at the camera BJA is talking about .

http://www.simplyelectronics.net/mainproduct.php?pid=16978

Canon G1X - 579.95.

Look at simply electronics address .

http://www.simplyelectronics.net/terms.php

In these Terms of Use, we refer to SimplyElectronics Ltd. as "SE" and the website as the "Site". Our address is:

SimplyElectronics Limited
1501-1508, Millennium City 5,
418 Kwun Tong Road,
Kwun Tong, Kowloon,
HongKong

Simply electronics is not in the UK as BJA does suggest . It is a Hong Kong based company.

More reviews , mostly bad.
