I'm pretty much set on buying the HMZ-T2 (unless I can be convinced otherwise), but unsure/wary about purchasing a Japanese import through Amazon (although this is at least £300 cheaper than buying from Sony UK direct).
There must be many people here from the UK who are happy with their purchase, to whom I ask from were do you recommend I buy? I've heard some stories that people have received the T1 instead of the T2 when ordering this way, so am looking for recommendations for a decent supplier...
Are there any obvious advantages to buying direct (with the £300 premium), such as warranty issues or import charges etc etc...
(sorry for what might be dumb questions, just never made such a large online purchase before!)
....of course, feel free to suggest alternative products, although from what I can tell this is the only real option until the competitors release their version sometime next year (at which point Sony will probably do the same and cause me great regret for not waiting :-)
