Cyberport.de, Amazon.de, mp3-player.de, AMP3 UK, and a few others have the 16GB version for decent-ish prices (as far as EU prices go).

I deleted some trolling and off-topic stuff from this thread. Please get back on topic.

Squzalkitty: thinking that Amazon, the world's biggest online shop (and one of the most reputable) would put a "virus" on a device they are selling is just plain silly.

Stevebg88: I never dealt with Exportprive, but they seem to be legit, from all I read.

I purchased a white 32GB J3 from them without issue, but someone else had issues with their return policies once their player bricked (within a week of receiving it). Because of this, I might be more "privy" to buy from a retailer such as Amazon.

I noticed the J3's price has gone down over the last few days: $284 -> $250 for 32GB and $220->$183 for 16GB. Maybe it's now within your budget?

Well from Italy i could buy from amp3 for about 255€ shipped (ONLY player) or from exportprive for 220€ + about 15€ shipping costs (player + jelly case + screen protector)

The gap is not irrelevant...

edit: ^ that's my guess when you ask "from where he physically ordered" and I'd think you have to pay import duty (taxes) on any inbound orders from other countries, I know we have them here.
