    Are there any decent companies your side of the pond that'll ship PC components to the UK?

    More specifically TFTs. I'm after a new one and the prices are so much better over there!

    Thanks all :)

    PS Even more specifically the Viewsonic VP201B.

    60 inch plasmas are only 2 grand.

    There are a few that will do it, but can you get them duty-free? I hear the VAT still applies if the US business is VAT registered, so as to do business with UK customers.

    You'll get absolutely maimed on import tax etc if they realise what it is.
    Funny thing is you could import an entire PC and not get charged, then order a book and get slapped for it, the import taxing seems to be entirely random.
