Samsung 850 EVO 1tb NZD389

Samsung 960 Pro 512gb NZD389

I doubt there will be any NZ Local seller can do this price.

 

Yes they are shipping from overseas but it is not over NZD400 so you shouldn't pay tax. Their website said "Tax Free" during checkout but not sure if they will cover the tax if the customs give you a hard time.

kogan.com.au bought the rights to use the dicksmith trade name.

 

Tax is calculated on the cost of the good AND shipping.

 

And remember, any warranty claim you make will be out of Australia.

 

 

 

 

 

But I remember DJ Reid

 

The good old days...

I cried when I found out that the TRS-80 Model 2/12/16 computers were simply taken to the dump.

 

8 inch floppy disks, running Xenix

 

 

 

I still have my Dick smith System-80, Kaypro 4 and was impressed with the kit set Sinclair ZX80, it seemed too small to be a computer...lol

My zx80 wasn’t a kitset. It was ready built. I think you got ripped off if they made you build it :)

Well.... I don't know much about DSE history but just an update regarding the SSD.
It is shipped out from Auckland using Toll(strange choice for small items), so I guess this one is actually tax free.

Seems not even Amazon can match the price this year...

The originals came only as a kitset, it was bought in by the local Radio/TV service technician in Taumarunui for his use.

 

I had my System-80 by then.

I had a ZX Spectrum.  There was game called "Lords of Midnight". It was almost awesome. :-) 

I also had those tape-loop storage things. Trying to be a hard drives, but on tape.....They never really worked. A terrible idea.
