Why are plasma screens so cheap in the UK?

    These prices are much cheap than can be found in Canada.
    Most of these projectors would out to around 6-8k CAD, but A&B sound currently sells plasma for like 12k?
    Why is this, just supply and demand?

    Aaron,
    I just did a currency exchange of 5000 British pounds and it came out to be $11,337 Canadian dollars. So it would seem like everything is the way it should be expected to be. I have noticed that most plasmas specifically slated as Home plasmas are much more expensive than their pro/business conterparts. Hope this did something for you. [​IMG]

    I just converted 3,795 pounds for a FUJITSU PDS-4208 B2
    to 5,509.20 USD. That price includes a Pioneer Home Cinema Speaker System. That is cheaper by quite a bit than anything I have seen here. Admittedly I don't follow plasma prices closely yet as they aren't quite in my range yet. I am happy to see they are closer every day. [​IMG]
