billgates: ^ Seems like a waste to buy the blu-ray player because the TV they have purchased cannot even do 720P!


Not at all! We have a HD ready plasma (purchased when full HD TVs were a lot more expensive). Watching BluRay movies on it is a far superior viewing experience to DVDs.

Noel Leeming are selling the TiVo 320GB for only $199 - in store only, one per customer.  That is a great freeview box for the price!!!

Bought on this morning after seeing this posted in the Tivo section.

Me too, I was the one who asked the question why they wern't listed online anymore. Grabbed one for my in-laws and used some birthday money to pick up one for me, and got my folks to grab one too. At that price it's only a bit more than a freeview decoder. Going away for a week but hopefully have time to set it up tonight.

I went to the Warehouse in St Lukes, Auckland & they happily price matched the Xbox for $174, awesome :-)

Don't go to the Warehouse on Dominion Road, the manager refused to price match.

Did you get the Kinect from DSE for $99 too?

I found an old work voucher :) $50 off

so total cost for me:
- Work HDD 320gb from vendor $0 free
- Case for internal HDD $7.20NZD Ebay
- Xbox $174 at Warehouse
- Kinect after discount $49 Dick Smith
- Crackdown $19 at Dick Smith

$223 all up for a 320gb+4gb Kinect console

Might be able to convince the wife that we can still keep the 2nd Playstation too Money Mouth




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

Picked up an x5 yesterday and I'm stoked with it. Nicest phone I have ever owned, but that is not saying much! $250 is what the original u8150 was worth when I got it free on 2 degrees plan.

Nah, it's my second Xbox. I already have a Kinect but rarely use it. Thanks for posting about the Warehouse price matching, I never expected them to price match this deal lol.
