Or really just anything for that matter?
I'm looking at buying an HTC Sensation from them in the next few days. Wouldn't mind to hear some feedback from people who have bought stuff from them in the past.

Anything I should be aware of?

Thanks

I bought a phone from them a couple of years ago with no problems. Communication was excellent and I received the phone two days after ordering it :)

I bought my Samsung Galaxy S2 from them around 2 weeks ago, paid via credit card and had it in my hands the next day (Paid for overnight courier). There was great communication and the phone was a good price.

The real test of service would be if I needed a warranty repair as the phones are parallel imported (Mine came from Romania). I'm hoping i'll never need to get it fixed anyway.

I've purchased off them twice (switch and pc case) - no problems, and fast delivery. I'm happy to use them again.

I have bought my last 3 smartphones from them - HTC Desire, Samsung Galaxy s, and Galaxy S2. I had no trouble with them, price was pretty good and you get a NZ warranty.

I had some trouble with the Desire - the microphone died. So i sent it back for repair and they sent it to some repair firm in Australia i think. It took around 6 weeks - but that was directly over the christmas period. I received it back in perfect working order.

I recommend them. Some of the other parallel importers do not honour warranties as easily.

Bought a Sony Ericsson X10i a few months ago.

Paid for it, lots of confirming and progress emails.

Got it within a week

Got a power plug adapter/convertor included as mine was a German import. (EU plug)

Working like a charm on the Vodafone network.

All Good.

The test would be warranty, but touch plastic. I should be OK.
