One thing to consider whenever buying from outside the USA is the cost of returns. Shipping rates aren't nearly equal worldwide, so something that costs the supplier little to ship to you FREE, may cost you serious dough to return.

For example, it costs me about $11.50 to mail an 5oz. package overseas, and about $25.00 for 3#s or so. Above 4#s the rates start at $45.00 or so. OTOH, I receive 1# packages from Hong Kong and China for less than $1.50 in postage paid.
