Hi.

Would it be possible for someone to pick-up some of them and forward them to Europe or maybe someone is heading to EU in next month or two? 8tb are literally half of EU prices :(

Thanks.

Thanks for this heads up!

Saw this yesterday, after having purchased 3 about 1.5 weeks ago for $199 each. Went to the store I bought them at for a $130 credit for the price drop :)

Have you considered using a 'freight forwarding' service so you can get a US address and forward goods yourself?

Freight forwarding services to Australia

EDIT: Though according to Best Buys, they do not 'ship to known freight forward addresses', though you could try your luck? Best Buy International Orders

I would need to know how we arrange shipping. Are you traveling to EU in next months? Or standard shipping? Origin zip code so that I can calculate costs etc.
Keep in mind that you'll not get these around customs, depending on your country you'll be paying at least your local taxes on their value at the border.

Meh, do what sellers from China do. Mark them as heatsink samples. Chunks of aluminum aren't that expensive. :D

Best Buy is horrendously strict on freight forwarders. I tried 3 different forwarders and they were all cancelled. I ended shipping 6 to a cousin before having them sent over to the forwarder.

Yeah ... I know.... best for me would be someone actually traveling to Europe :)
I am looking among friends and family.
I got some pm from people here that would act like forwarders so it should fool BB.

Someone previously mentioned that BB are very strict with respect to freight forwarders. I decided to try my luck anyway, using Jetcarrier to ship to Norway. I ordered one unit this morning (to be used in my desktop), and received the shipment confirmation from BB some hours ago. So at least Jetcarrier seems to be working at the moment.
