the main issue here are the following :

* using a courrier service for deliveries instead of the basic post
office service does 2 things :
	* the courrier service charges you about 4 times as much for the
	  same thing
	* using the courier service usually means you'll *always* pay
	  various import taxes (sometimes with the postal service, you
	  fall into cracks, which is always appreciated)
* for some reason, the various import taxes will render the device
(priced in USD) a lot more expensive.
