"In addition to its Swiss and American headquarters, the company has offices throughout Europe, Asia and the rest of the Americas. Logitech's sales and marketing activities are organized into three geographic regions: America; Europe; and the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific."

Things are the way they are for specific reasons. I'm sure it comes down to more logistics than just people not knowing how to do math and simple conversions.

You'd be surprised.
When the 1070's came out in Canada, they were fair prices, at least for the first month and a bit (when demand is highest).
Without our dollar changing at all, all of the GPU's at least on NewEgg have went up like $50 since.

Demand went down, our dollar stayed the same, the products remained identical, prices went up. Makes no sense.
There are things that are more expensive or become more expensive for no real reason other than they can as far as I can tell.

Our dollar was lower in January, I think everyone just charges more because of the instability of the dollar to make sure they'll be fine if it drops 5% or 10% tomorrow.
Still annoying though when you're technically getting ripped off.

When our dollars were equal or close to it a couple years ago, we were paying exactly whatever the USD to CAD Google conversion said.
We weren't paying the same percentage more back then, and it's not like it's because Logitech and everyone else had offices in Canada and now don't or anything like that.

We also have less options for online retail, which sometimes makes retailers get carried away without much competition, they can charge whatever where else are you gonna go.

We used to pay exactly what we should, now we always pay extra. It wasn't like this in 2014 and prior. That's why it's annoying. Everyone rounds up, often excessively.
It wasn't always like this.

Can't wait until I can finally use a mouse from Logitech! Besides the g303 in my hand lol

To those that tried it already, how is the scroll wheel button click? After hearing that the g pro was hard to press just like the 303, I was pretty disappointed. Is the 403 any better?

not sure if it works for all countries but in Germany you can use the code IFA2016 and get 20% off + you can use the "free express shipping" pop up.... Damn I need to cancel my G Pro and G403 order and make a new one :/

edit: you can combine it with the 5€-LOGITECH Coupon too biggrin.gif

For some reason there is an obsession with ##.99$ prices so companies would have to eat the tax differences or have odd prices that differed slightly all over the place.

Also at least in my state tax varies from county to county. I'm not sure how it works for online things, but if I go to best buy near me there is 6.5% tax, but if I go to the one 10 miles south in a different county it is 7 or 7.5%. I've actually forgotten.

Yeah, the sales tax charge on the Logitech web store is a reason why I avoid it. If I have to pay sales tax I'll buy it locally instead.

PLEASE don't go down the route of mentioning how your Canadian Dollar has dropped, try using our near worthless Australian Currency, which will make you cry like a slapped baby.

Because we are stuck with paying nearly everything in USD currency, then experience the hurt. Although it's been like this for years so we have developed a natural state of acceptance when buying anything from overseas.

Thanks to our idiot Governments, that literally trashed any manufacturing here we essentially don't make or build anything of worth. All complicated 1st World Goods has to come from other countries selling them, hence our addiction to buying from overseas will never end.
