Default Where to buy in Europe + Micro SDHC big price differences??

Hello,

I am pretty much decided on getting a Sansa Fuze, mostly because of (based only on reviews and info on forums) sound quality, expandable memory, FM Radio, good battery, and easy controls (not tactile, that is what prevents me to go for the cowon D2...).

Now, does anybody know where to get one in Europe? I tried amazon.com, amazon.uk, shop.sansa, and they do not seem ship it to some countries in Europe.

Moreover, I have a newbie question and hope someone can help I was looking for micro sdhc cards to complement the Fuze and found apparently huge price differences on sansa site and some other places. For instance
Sandisk micro SD 8GB 139.99$ at http://go.shopsansa.com/content/MemoryExpansion
vs
SanDisk - Flash memory card 8 GB - Class 4 - microSDHC with MobileMate Micro Reader for 17.99GBP
http://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-memo...sxp_grid_i_1_1
Why is it so? Are they different classes or I am missing something?

Thank you very much

I would like to what would be a nice, reliable place to buy an 8GB Fuze that just ships to Europe? Any help on this would be appreciated.

I can get the same Sandisk 8GB Class 4 MicroSDHC for EUR 29.90 in Austria: http://geizhals.at/a283605.html

The official Sandisk price is just some MSRP nonsense.

I think for Europe you just need to wait, I was searching for such online shop that ships to Europe this sansa fuze but couldn't find any. I live in Europe too and waiting for this one and i think we will wait for few more weeks or even a month...

Well, well. Too bad, looks like I have to buy another Sony player then... Nothing wrong with Sony, they sound excellent, I would just have liked the price and storage capacity of the Fuze.

I decided to wait as much as it needs. If this month it wont appear in Europe i'll ask for friend which live in Ireland that he could order it to himself and then send it to me can't find another way to get it. For now i'll just stick with my nokia phone + lcg jukebox player..

Thanks! I actually took a look at the mp3player.com previously but I thought that they don't ship to Finland (my german is a bit rusty...) Now it looks like they do. Too bad they don't have the 8GB version (I probably would have already pressed the order button

I don't know how reliable these two stores are? I would probably go for the german version, because I know just a bit of german and I have positive previous experiences about ordering from Germany.

You will probably wait a bit longer in Germany but you will get a 2 year warrantly. Even in France it's not the case. I'm close to the border so I will wait a little longer.

AFAIR, all Sansas sold in Europe have two years warranty.
