Found 6th Feb 2009
Just spotted this on DX, it is apparently a refurb (what ever that means at DX I don't know:p).
But for what equates to about £35 delivered it strikes me as a reasonably good deal, there have been deals at Gamestation and Game etc doing these cheap, but I am sure they are not anymore.
Oh well, if it helps out one person it might have been worth typing it :

Would be liable for import tax so if you get caught, it'll cost much more than if you bought from the UK.

Everything I've ordered from DE has been marked as a "gift" to avoid taxes :thumbsup:.

You don't pay duty on anything that is under £100 now (might not be the exact figure, but it is around this), this changed sometime over christmas, although you might end up having to pay vat so +15%.

Wasn't this just for 'personal luggage' though.

Looks like it's still £18, with £36 for gifts. If this is marked up as gift, then it should just get in.

There's nothing worse than being charged VAT and then the £10-£15 handling charge the couriers bill you for paying the VAT on your behalf.
