Be wary.....This will come in at over the £18 customs threshold, so you could end up paying 17.5% VAT, import duty (typically around 3 to 6%) plus the Post Office handling fee.
This could push the price up to well over £60

Heat added, as even £60 is a good price (provided it's not like most Deal Extreme stuff - and doesn't fall apart the first time you use it).

Remember that you still need to put a hard drive into this. Also it has 1080i output but i bet it doesnt handle HD video files - just outputs SD video files at 1080i resolution. Im guessing at this but something worth checking and if that is the case youd be better off buying a DVD player that upscales to 1080i and has a USB socket on it.

ONCE AGAIN. You will not pay VAT. I have bought four R4 DS's from there each one being above £20 and not payed any extra.

you cannot say WILL not. you MAY not. ANYTHING over £18 is eligible to be taxed and have duty collected on it.

You MIGHT not... you could well end up paying VAT and as it's unlikely this will actually handle HD (due to the cost of the processor required) it's only really useful as a portable player - can't find a use for one of them...

ONCE AGAIN, the threshold is £18 (£36 for gifts sent from a person, rather than a company).
ANYTHING sent from a company has a chance (a fairly strong chance at that) of being spotted by the customs staff at Mount Pleasant.
If it is spotted, you WILL HAVE TO PAY customs duty, VAT and the handling charge.
Anything that gets through without being spotted is down to pure luck.
There is no way Deal Extreme, or the buyer, can control how it gets through customs.

What is it, that you find so hard to understand?
There is no special rule for Deal Extreme; and "badmanmeow", you are not so special as to be immune to customs charges (unless you work for Royal Mail, and can slip it out the back door whilst nobody's watching).

I have had a good deal of stuff, from a variety of web sites, get through without customs charges, and a good deal that got spotted (about a 50/50 balance), so it is misleading to continually tell people you "will not pay VAT".
If you note, from my post, I state you may have to pay. And that is a clearer picture than you paint.
The last time something of mine got spotted, it was only just over the £18 threshold (which doesn't include shipping charges, BTW) - IIFC around £25, and the VAT, import duty and admin charges were so high, I almost didn't bother collecting the item from the sorting office.

Dealextreme always mark the items value less than £18 even when ordering £200 worth of stuff

Ditto what yus786 says, I've had many packages from them all marked te same no matter what's in it.

Plus you can always split up the orders if you're worried as everything has free delivery . . .

Yes I have bought from Deal Extreme, and continue to do so.
Also, just because I'm new here, it doesn't mean I know nothing and just because you've been visiting this site for a while doesn't mean you know it all.
I have been importing goods (for personal use - which is what we're talking about here - for business use, there is no £18 threshold) for well over 10 years, and have had occasions where a package has been opened, and duty & VAT charged even when the declared value was below the £18 threshold.
You clearly know little about the laws regarding importing goods into this country (by way of your absolute statement that customers will never get charged import duty and VAT when buying from Deal Extreme).

The ONLY way Deal Extreme get around the rules, is by declaring a lower than £18 value.
Unfortunately, you also need to do your research a bit more......
Customs reserve the right (and often do so) to open packages to check the value of the contents against the attached declaration.
This is to prevent obvious fraud (by the method you describe, where the retailer states the value is significantly lower than the actual value, and that declared value just happens to be lower than the £18 threshold).
They are also wise to the usual ebay method of tax evasion (whereby items are sold for 99p, and the shipping costs £50).

Just because you've never had to pay duty & VAT on purchases from Deal Extreme, and they always declare values way below what they're actually worth, doesn't mean it cannot happen (and, BTW, it's the sell price, not the actual value, that's supposed to be declared)........Which is why I said "could" in my original post.

looks like tat...cold one from me!
#16
The ebay methodology is flawed as the value determined by customs when assessing duty and vat will include any costs associated with bringing the goods to the customer and therefore include postage.

simple rule

if you order stuff from the likes of dealextreme under the £18 misconception then

Dont be upset if you are charged

Be happy if you are not
