I think this might be the case of parallel import - they definitely do that for some other articles. I have no other explanation for that price - AT trade price is higher than that.
I don't doubt the legitimacy though, so, absolute bargain.

If you couldn't get one at that price today check again in a few weeks time.  I got one at this price a couple of months ago but it would only let me buy one and  each time I checked it was out of stock.

Well known retail tactic:



Admit it, how many of us considered buying another item to go with the cartridge while we were there? :giggle:
