kryptonjohn:

 

That should avoid GST and fees too?

 

 

Unfortunately I don't think so - over $400 so would attract about $100 of GST and fees.

 

I'm also pretty interested in the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum - [site that apparently I can't name] had this on sale yesterday (sale is finished now) for under NZ$400 including delivery. This would mean no GST or fees applicable.

 

The Xiaomi looks more like a 980 competitor. Enhanced mapping and navigation certainly looks like an upgrade from the 'bump and run' of the 690.

 

Has anyone got one of the Xiaomi ones? If it could be landed for under $400 then the price/feature combination is hard to look past...

So after a bit of research I went with the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum.

If you play your cards right you can get this delivered for under the NZ$400 customs threshold. If anyone’s interested I’ll start a new thread with info.

First impressions: fantastic bit of kit, excellent build quality, works as expected, and amazing value for money when compared to the competition.
