    In case anyone was still in doubt about the value of this stuff for everyone in the UK...

    I just took delivery of 8gb of RAM from OWC for my new mac pro for the ludicrous sum of £223 inclusive of shipping. Plus no requirement to pay anything additional on delivery. Crucial are charging £610 for the same and I'm sure to get it from Apple would require me to sell at least one of my arms. Took 4 days from order to delivery. I am one happy customer.

    FedEx International Priority. $32.33. Good value I think, to have something flown overnight to you. I'm fairly sure it's cheaper than the US Postal option at OWC too.

    Don't get too excited with not having paid any VAT, I think FedEx like to hit you with it later on by post.

    None the less, still very good value.

    I felt like there had to be a catch. Oh Well. As you say, still very very good value though.

    It looks like your ram parcel slipped through the net .... :)

    Normally if there is vat to pay, you get a letter from HM customs asking for the required amount. Once this is paid (and only then) is your parcel delivered.
    I think you can relax .. :cool:

    At least this has been my experience.

    Lets hope so.

    Either way, having been a bit unsure about the possible pitfalls of getting it from the states, I thought I would add my positive experiences to the pile for anyone else in the same situation.

    Having had a few issues with FedEx, I went for the UPS option - ordered the same 8Gb yesterday, phone call a few moments ago telling me the package would be on tonight's flight - would I like to pay the £50 Tax now by credit card?

    All very organised!

    Damn, I didn't realise they'd charge you!

    Oh well, here's hoping mine slips through the net :(
