Hardware, Embedded Systems Another fantastic article at The Verge, this time covering Vizio in-depth, written by Nilay Patel. "Vizio is one of the best-kept secrets in consumer technology. The tiny Southern California company consistently sells the most HDTVs in America, but it's a sure bet that you know virtually nothing about it. Hell, most people don't even know Vizio is an American company, even though all but three of its 417 employees work in the US."

And I have explained numerous times that it is the importer who takes on the responsibility regarding compliance with the relevant local standards. All the vendor in question would have to put is a disclaimer noting that it is the importers responsibility for taxes, tariffs and local regulatory requirements. In all due respects it is a cop-out at the end of the day - provide an option for shipment internationally and let the customer deal with any issues that arise.
