HTC has slashed the price of its Vive VR headset, bringing it down by $200 to $599.
<snip>
The Rift headset bundled with two Touch controllers is now priced at $399. The previous price was $598.
I'm confused.

HTC dropped their pricing in line with Oculus price drop.
Oculus dropped to $399 and HTC dropped to $599

Importing an HTC Vive:

Ordered on Amazon when the exchange rate hit R12.80 / $ : R8000 [+1% for Visa; +2.75% for the bank fee: note Capitec charges 0%]
MyUS economy forwarding : R900
Customs : R1500
Total : R10'400.

Total time to deliver was 20 days with some bad luck. It should take ~14 days.

My review: It works amazingly well. The tracking, force feedback controllers and drivers/software exceeded my expectations.
