The price of the 12X/DSX12 is a piss take anyway.

No way in the world is it worth x3 the price of a DSX9

Regardless of exchange rates !!!.

Yen versus pound
Come back to this in 12months and my guess is that you will wish you bought now, the rate at which the pound is going down.Pretty depressing stuff.

Yep, I used to reprice my spares on a weekly basis before placing a price list on the website.

Thats how I can remember 240.

Yup, same in NZ, the NZD is getting crushed - ouch. If our idiot central bank would stop slashing interest rates then our dollar would firm up. Morons. Any interest rate savings people see are more than being swallowed by runaway inflation (and much lower deposit interest) due to falling currency values vs. the USD and Yen.

Looking at those numbers is just depressing.

Oh well, just watch, once the economy in the USA stabilizes and the en masse Mutual Fund Redemptions (i.e. demand for the USD) stop, you will see the USD get absolutely hammered. They are printing $$ like mad to bail everyone (and their dog) out and that only leads to inflation in the long run...

Place your order quickly then, because you can almost guarantee that the next order will be paid at the dwindling exchange rate. Grab whilst you can !
