    Hello puppy

    You'll have to open a Trade account with Owl Video (DVDO's UK Distributor) and take on Dem stock if you want to match the price you've quoted :)

    I would have thought it was relatively straightforward to get a price from a US supplier inc International Shipping - you'll need to budget for Duty + VAT and keep in mind you'll have to return the unit to the US if you ever need to have it serviced.

    Best regards

    Joe

    you could try AV-Sales

    I got mine from them, ex-demo with warranty for £650

    Least you are then dealing with a UK supplier if you have any issues

    I just phoned owl up and they supplied me with 1 and they were still the cheapest , remember if it goes wrong you have to send it back to where you bought it from.

    Hello tryingtimes

    I doubt anyone who supplies DVDO in the UK gets surprised with the antics of both DVDO and Owl Video - it seems that every second DVDO product arriving in the UK gets sold as a 'demo' unit.

    Best regards

    I have to say I find it really annoying when UK distributors take more money than they deserve and put the prices up for UK consumers. I have a few distributors on my list of ones to avoid - funnily enough they never seem to match the inflated price with outstanding customer service.

    Take the UK Stewart distributors for another example.

    I and many others are happy to pay for good service, and this is what I do with my hi-fi dealers - they earn their money and more.

    I would think that the majority of DVDO customers would benefit from buying from a dealer like you Joe (even at the non-demo price ;)) who would take some of the pain out of setup, it's just a shame that you don't get the support you deserve from further up the chain.

    Actually OWL and their dealers is breaking the EU consumer rights law not taking a imported Iscan for service.

    If you bought the Iscan in the U.S you are by law entitled to bring it in for service where ever you bought it, USA, Japan or whatever.....

    However you might need to pay for the service, but they are not entitled to refuse.

    Take it up with your local EU consumer authorities if you have problems is my suggestion, they are located everywhere in Europe that can answer your questions and help you if you have problems.
