See the difference?

I would rather that too, but it doesn't always (or even usually) happen. The money is what gets that guy to do it.

Also still on their twitter.

Interesting idea, although they'll struggle to make anything of an impact unless they can keep the prices low enough. Might be useful for certain things that are hard to get over here though.

I cant find it on their website or their twitter...so I dont think this can be classified as news since it seems to be a mistake?

Also like others have said ive got no idea how they intend to get around our tax problem. For instance:

4770k in UK costs £260.
4770k on newegg costs ~£210. It will take at least a few week to get over here, then when it lands in the UK it will cost at least 20% in import tax, if not more (handling fees). So that puts it at virtually the same price.

No one in their right mind would buy something that costs the same but takes much, much longer to arrive.

I guess that's why it worked so well in the Soviet Union. I remember the lines for bread, meats and essentials. Prices all tightly controlled so noone got "gouged".

A lot of people starved, but at least they weren't cheated.

Of course this is an extreme example, but you get the point.

They would ship a bunch of stuff over to a warehouse. Will probably have horrible selection for years lol.

They'll probably ship from Taiwan/China/Japan to Europe instead of from Taiwan/China/Japan to USA then to Europe. ---- This solves that logistic issue

20% VAT will murder them. It's not just UK, Euro Zone (Germany , Austria, Italy, the Netherlands, and France for example).


edit for clarity:
Import duty/tax (Click to show)
................Sales tax ....... Additional duties & taxes
Hungary 27%

Frankly I see no logical way this (newegg shipping to Europe) could have any positive benefit for anyone unless they are only selling stuff that nobody has locally and your willing to foot the tax bill.
I understand that , but you need to take into account volume. Newegg is buying larger volume if they break into European markets.

Wont they just be on a level playing field with everyone else here?

Sure, we're not going to get US prices, but we'll get competitive ones?

Hah, either someone from Newegg is watching this thread, or that was just amazing timing. It was there when I posted the link to it, gone very soon after.
