Whoa. I need a 1TB SSD. How does this compare to a Samsung EVO 850?

Isn't that 960GB SSD on the wrong side of the GST threshold?

I just added it to the cart and went to checkout to see what the total was:

Items: NZD 421.99
Shipping & handling: NZD 8.97

Total before tax: NZD 430.96
Estimated tax to be collected: NZD 0.00
Import Fees Deposit: NZD 102.58

Order total: NZD 533.54

I don't quite understand how the "Import Fees Deposit" is calculated, I thought it should be around NZ $62.

I'd guess that it includes the GST too.

The 480GB model works out to NZ $222.18 including shipping which seems pretty good, the cheapest I can find it in NZ is $306.

Guess you will always be renting then?

This is what credit cards are for. And rewards. Mmmm rewards points. Soon I will have enough for a CD or something useless.

I'm kicking myself for being too lazy to follow thru with opening a usd based bank account when I had some coming my way last year.
