Hopefully PCH will learn and deliver something in a decent box next time; though going by the numbers of folks that still bought a dudd (A-200) after knowing the noise/heat issues they might not be too bothered.

And I class myself in the 'buying a dudd' category by the way Tongue, though my c-200 delivers what I need now. (Downgraded expectations + upgraded firmware=mostly happy)

Stay on topic, this is NOT a thread to bash PCH. This is a thread for those who wish to pre-order or have questions about the product or pre-order process.

If any USA distributor wishes to talk to the French reseller I'm sure that they could work something out on USA shipping costs.
If that's what you post when you are 'mostly happy' I'd hate to be reading one of your unhappy posts!

anybody else find that ridiculous?

Umm. No? It costs that much to send something from Europe to the US. Actually, that's quite cheap if you ask me. I'm paying 16€ to send something from Germany to the UK! So $22 from France to the US? That's dirt cheap. Man, some poeple can do nothing but complain, seriously...
Can someone confirm that they will only charge my credit card when the product starts shipping and not earlier?
If so, I'm in.

50 units sold already, glad to see that it has taken offCool

No one will get rich out of this and it is good to see those that take the time to develop something get the support.

RE: A200 - Pre-orders 3rd party metal case with optional fanless heatsink
Shouldn't this be 39 Euros minus French VAT (sales tax) for anyone living outside the EUSSR?
(since EU tax only applies to shippings within the EU, sales to US, Canada, Switzerland, Norway, etc. should be sold tax exempt)

So it should be 31.36 Euros for outside EU (assuming my information that French VAT is 19.6%, is correct).

If you use for example a USA shipping address then the total inc 22.50 shipping is 55.11. Making it 32.61 excl VAT (39 euros inc 19.6% VAT).

The English language button was added afterwards.

Well, I just tried for Switzerland and I'm getting 49 euros total (39+10), so that's definitely incorrect.
(but you are right about 32.61 excl VAT rather than 31.36 as I incorrectly calculated)

RE: A200 - Pre-orders 3rd party metal case with optional fanless heatsink
I didn't mention Switzerland, I mentioned the USA where it does as I say it does.

Just tried the Swiss test and it is 49 euros. Take it up with the supplier as im sure they ship all over Europe and will know the rates to none EU european countries.
