Canton's too far away from Seoul anyway. Though I just said Asia, Asia has more than 4 billion people. Newegg recently started working with their "sources" in Taiwan and in China. Like HP and Dell have done.
Truly global should mean one market for all. It shouldn't cost that much to send some hardware products across the Pacific of the Atlantic. It's just that like telephones and air travels one century ago such things are still reserved for the rich and the profit-oriented business bodies rather than the majority of consumers and prosumers.
Thus, I couldn't order the MCC004 from Dell or order some TDK and Maxell 16x DVD-R from Tokyo either. Lots of wasted opportunities. I can have 10 MCC004 now for 99,000 won which is about US$95. It's that high because the media are bundled with a BenQ DW1620 OEM (Nu-tech DDW-163 package.) Otherwise, an MCC004 disk costs somewhere around US$1.5 and US$2.5. Maxell 5x DVD-RAM single-sided 4.7GB disc and without a protective cartridge for US$18.
Such market situations affect everyone and especially the reviewers and hardware enthusiasts negatively. Though there are also people who make very profitable use of them.
