If you've got some good netstore information to share, please do so. I live in France.

I know these:

www.thomann.de
www.idealo.de (or www.idealo.fr)
www.amazon.com
www.ebay.com

I have decided to buy a Casio Privia px-130 set with the stand and 3 pedals. The prices here for this set is 735 euros the cheapest that I have found - that's almost 1100USD. In the US you can get the same set with 600USD so almost half the price. I can't understand why we are being punished here in Europe with these high prices.

I ordered mine at thomann in 2007, was a good experience and I could return an item (Yamaha CLP-320) within a month without giving them any reason (even after assembly). Didn't order anything since then.

"PRIVIA PX-130BKST is not available in the current billing address country."

I think this is some bs pricing strategy from Casio to reduce competition inside EU. I'll make a call to my MEP.

Well try to order it:

"There is a problem with your basket: PRIVIA PX-130BKST is not available in the current billing address country."

Even with the French version.

Hmm. I get the same error message when trying to buy the PX-130 (my billing address is in Slovakia). There is no problem when I try to buy a Yamaha...

You can probably get a ticket to New York for 600 euros.
Just buy one there and get the instrument at the same price with the trip for free?

"The reason why we cannot ship these outside the UK is that every time we sent one it arrived completely broken. We have tried several times and after quite a few attempts it was decided that we would not ship these items outside the UK anymore."

Interesting. There were already reports on this forum of the new Casios arriving with broken keys. This DV247 policy seems to confirm that the Casios may be more fragile than other DPs.
