It's great news that ESS and NOD32 3.0 are to be released within a week. Sadly, Eset seem to be following the lead set by Microsoft and many others in charging us a premium in the UK for exactly the same software as our cousins in the US. Today's exchange rate is £1 = $2.06 and has been around the $2 mark for some time. In the press release on eset.com the suggested price for ESS is $59.99 ( = £29.12 ) and NOD32 3.0 is $39.99 ( = £ 19.41 ). On eset.co.uk the price for ESS is £44.99 ( = $92.68 ) and NOD32 3.0 is £29.99 ( = $61.78 ). The markup is 54% for EXACTLY THE SAME English version of the software. Even allowing for differences is sales taxes, this is a huge profit especially considering that there are no shipping costs etc. as it is downloaded from the Internet. Last time I renewed my subsciption for NOD32 I bought it from the UK Web Site because they were doing a special deal for a 3 year license. Unless there are any really good deals this time I will definitely be buying it from eset.com and paying in US dollars.
