Isn't that normal though??
by benanzo / October 26, 2006 5:25 AM PDT

From my experience of never leaving my apt. and learning everything about the world from my neighbor's blaring TV at 3am, isn't it relatively normal for things like that to be more expensive elsewhere?

I was in Europe awhile ago and found nearly everything to be of slightly worse quality and vastly more expensive than for the same item at my local Stop N' Go. Don't know what that was about, but I can only deduce that the reason that stuff's cheaper and of better quality in the US could possibly be that the company making it is a US company, but the product made is made in China or India or Taiwan, etc. thus making it super-cheap...which is fine with me as I'm not an idealist like my Teamster friends, I just want my junk to be cheap and not break before it is scheduled to. Also, I read somewhere that something like 80 percent of all international imports/exports come through US ports, making The Big United States Thumb heavier than ever when negotiating super-awesome trade agreements with others. Remember the WTO riots here in Seattle? I was there, and I saw 9 hippies sitting on the sidewalk with a bong and a cardboard sign ("anything helps god bless") and 1400 drunk frat boys throwing stones. idiots.

I've noticed prices more expensive overseas too

I used to live in Singapore and the price of a PS2 there was well above 200US$ of its US counter part. Why is this?? It bugged me to no end.
The only bonus was that you could, for a few dollers more, if you wanted to was get a mod chip version and there by recoup your cost by buying loads of games.

The price of the PS2 in the states is now what? 130$ Now where i live in Thailand the price is still 100US$ above what it costs in the US. ******.

Don't know what the X-360 costs out here but i'll find out an post it.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
