zhuyan: Got one Seagate 4TB external hard drive last weekend from NL wellington central for $229; think that's a good deal.

I could have bought the same from amazon and get youshop to ship to NZ for about $214 but thought for $15 more I wouldn't have to wait.

Amazon is still having sales on various external hard drives up to 40% off and some of them could be shipped direct to NZ; postage included it could still be cheaper by 20-30%


Good deal, I have been looking at Internal 2/3/4TB drives to use in a dock but may reconsider and just get an external one if they are that cheap. Thanks for the heads up that these prices are out there, I was still under the impression that External HDD were still super expensive compared to Internal

I think 1 or 1.5tb is the sweet spot for external usb 2.5" drives. Check price spy.

Best Buy is still offering Toshiba's new Canvio® 3.0 portable hard drive 1.5T for just US$69.99, only about 180g in weight. With Youshop postage included, you should be able to get it for about NZ$110 delivered; not bad either!

joker97: I think if i got a powered one i'd get a network drive. Is seagate central worth it or would you go nas?

seagate central is a nas, albeit a simple home/home office nas, no redundancy, capped at 4 TB.

it's reasonably good performance compare to other low cost nas, but not that great at current NZ retail price.

I see Harvey Norman has Windows 8 Pro upgrades for sale on their web-site at $98. Seems like a good price if you have an old XP license lying around.

 Amazon have their standard kindle at $30 off today with international shipping, using the code KINDLE59, so landed price in New Zealand is just over NZ$89.  And of course using the geekzone link is usually encouraged :)

Noel Leemings have/had two $20 itunes cards for $30, saving $10 or 25%. But their staff weren't aware of the deal, and it isn't automatically applied at checkout, so you have to grab a leaflet to show them. It's on the bottom of the back page of their brochure. Not sure when it finishes, but I got it on friday.
