I presume Digital Rev ships to Belgium.


Because since a few months now if you import something from outside europe to belgium you have to pay customs fee and its substantial, so no not going to do that.

A reputable grey importer (there is such a thing) will quote prices including duty, VAT and delivery, a lot of them include a year or three years insurance based warranty and you have 14 days to return items for a refund, but...

DigitalRev charge a 15% restocking fee if you've opened the box and it's not faulty but you've changed your mind.

Some official importers (particularly in the USA) take such a dim view of grey imports that they won't even take them in for a paid service.
