Same problem here with NL/BB. I'm guessing whoever is in charge of Click Madness for The Warehouse Group didn't properly account for the traffic increase so they're effectively been DDOSed a sad but common problem with these things. (Has the signs, often does respond but with an error and takes a long time. Very occasionally you do get through.) IIRC, the NL/BB website has always seemed a bit flaky.

Have to agree the only good deal I've seen so far has been the Nexus 4. While not as good as it got in the US, it's not bad. Galaxy S4 doesn't seem worth it considering the N4 but to each their own. I have the S4 mini I won so not particularly relevant to me either way.

I'm doing my bit to help keep the DDOS attack on bondandbond.co.nz going by regularly refreshing the page. Wanting to see if the camera which I bought last week (which they then cancelled the order for due to a pricing mix-up) can be had for the same price again. I just bought a lego box from the warehouse and some canvases and a calculator not warehouse stationary - not very hi-tech.

Is that how it was advertised? The site sells exdemos, refurbs and stuff that has stuff missing, so that may have been mentioned in the description.

Then they have to provide it. Probably no  a huge price saving since I had seen them on special brand new at JB hifi with a 12 month manufacturers warranty and CGA protection for about $160ish

Yeap I was tempted. I don't think they are that popular, so they can offer some good deals on them from time to time. Can't see anywhere they are that cheap at the moment though, but with sales coming up anythings possible.

Looking at the deal from the warehouse on a Veon TV. I don't know much about the exact model as in seen it, but I know almost all of the Veon TV's picture viewing angle is terbblie, much like a cheap screen 1366 x 768 laptop when you tilt the lid forwards

Anyone know what this particular TV is like?

 

 

Veon 22 Inch Full HD LED TV VN2212LED

Did you ge tit resolved? Make sure you get a proper apple cable too, as some of the no name cables ones will only charge, and not transfer data.

still no reply from them at lunch time so i rang the 0800 number again, it rang and rang and rang until it was transferred to noel leeming.

spoke to the woman at noel leeming and she transferred my call to bond and bond, within a minute someone picked up and they said they will send me out a cable and that was the end of the call, only on the phone with her for about 30sec.

i hope she send the correct cable cause all my cheap cables stopped working with all the new software

I feel that.  Just binned my cheap china cable because it didn't charge and then when I tried to get some photos off at the weekend it didn't transfer as a data cable either.

If you are in the market for a cheap and not too bad quality bedside bluetooth speaker with clock then the Veon VN3094CLBT might interest you.

We bought one yesterday from The Warehouse and it's great, even includes a USB charging socket for the smartphone.

i'm not sure if these are real or not

since everyone else sells the genuine cable for $29
