    Corsair really are the worst for ripping off UK customers with their $-£ exchange rate prices.

    The UK consumer isn't there to keep you in free pizza's, big George.

    I hate the 'uk tax' as much as the next person but I wouldn't exactly say that's the case here.

    At current exchange rate $60 is around £46.1371, then you need to add in vat at 20% so that makes it £55.36452, remember US prices don't include their tax due to differences between states.

    I wouldn't say a £2 markup to cover exchange rate fluctuation, transportation and any other 'UK fees' they may incur as being an excessive markup.

    US price doesn't include our 20% VAT (Americans pay sales tax at the checkout as it varies from state to state.

    With UK VAT, $60 becomes $72, which then converts to £55.38, so that makes an actual markup of £2.61 to cover shipping etc.

    spot on again.

    I fail to see how this priced chassis is a rip off.. cos it's just not. It's spot on value and the exchange rate makes total sense when VAT is sorted.
