Somebody really needs to sit down with these rip off merchants at Corsair and tell them that a £1=$1 exchange rate for pricing is totally unacceptable, when its currently at $1.40'ish.
Déjà vu of:
You've got to remember that US prices won't include tax but our prices will. $140 = £100 roughly before tax but then add 20% VAT and import duties etc and you get an awful lot closer to the UK price. Still not quite at the UK price but not £1=$1 either.
Computer cases are zero-rated for import tariffs, so there's only VAT (plus the differences in things like average income between the nations I bring up every time I weigh in on this topic.)
It's just blatant profiteering based on an exchange rate that was closer to $1.20, which is when Corsair raised prices in the UK, There is no excuse for this case costing more than £119.99 (or if we're being extremely generous, £124.99 to account for the average 5% US sales tax Americans will pay) at today's exchange rate, none whatsoever
