Beware..this is a RANT
I dont know about you guys but im fed up to the back teeth with getting reamed by Australian Arms of multinational corps..so much so that I sent a email to Epson regarding their pricing policy of high end photo ( because I want one )
The is the Epson R3880
heres my email
Just wondering why the Americans can buy a R3880 for $889 US and we Aussies with a stronger Dollar are still paying $1990... !!
seems like price gouging to me ?dont you realise if you dropped the price people would buy more of these units ?its no wonder buyers are buying OS
their reply..and I must admit I was amazed I even got a reply
"Thank you for contacting Epson Support.
We review our prices against competitor products with similar specifications to ensure that we are not pricing beyond market expectations.
We do not consider the prices in other countries of similar Epson products when setting Australian prices. Our prices are based on costs incurred by Epson Australia in delivering this product to market.

so bascily we will continue to rip you off because we can !!..also I cant even buy one from ..because of a import deal epson have that precludes grey importing their gear.. sometimes it sucks to be a Aussie
