That's good to hear. I was worried because here, everything that has a declared value bigger than 50 dollars gets taxed to hell and back. Even if it's for non-commercial use. First a 24% VAT and then another customs tax that for electronics can go up to 30% of the resulting sum. It's quite prohibitive. And I'm not that partial to paying more than half the value in taxes.

Shocked  24% is crazy high. Let me guess you live somewhere in Europe? I hope someday we will live in a world where there will be free trade not just for big multinational corporations but for us regular people.

Yep, Europe. Used to be 19%. (No, I'm not in any of the PIIGS countries).

Demo, looks like you are Portuguese...
Not only the VAT is 24% but also if they don't agree with the value the border policy atributes a value they think its fair (as they know that the hell they are handling) and you only get a notice 30 days after it arrives  (at least in Portugal) asking you to send them the invoice copy and you wait another 7 days...
Even if you pay VAT for shipping to the sender... you'll pay VAT again for the total invoice plus taxes they say you have to pay for their service, the dog's food, the bird water the cousin toy, the uncle teeth... all of this if you want to get the product that you already paid for...

Is that true?  I thought most of Europe has the same plug but not UK or Switzerland (and the Europlug still works in Switzerland actually).

Many are different, but exchangeable.
If you look at http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netstekker type e for belgium and type f for the netherlands, many connectors in the netherlands have an extra hole so they fit in the wall in belgium.
