TwoSeven: I while back I spoke to an MS CSR in the states over a MS Store purchase I wanted to make.  They explained that the billing address of the card needed to be a US one for their store, and the shipping address also needed to be a US one otherwise I would need to use the NZ store (which didn't have any of the products on it).

Yes I had the same experience, I tried to use the youshop address as billing address but they cancelled the order and when I spoke to them it was the same, even if the postal address is US, you still require a US billing address also.

I've just hit the buy button from that ebay seller, so we'll see how that goes.

The ebay deal is really good. You are only paying a $10 premium (USD$210 on ebay vs $200 via MS store) and NZ$27 for shipping to NZ.

Do whatever you want to do man.

billgates: I buy the docking station from MS Store USA, ship to YouShop then NZ.

Strongly recommend this ebay seller. It's USD$209 for the dock + USD$25 to ship to NZ.

I can recommend this deal. It took about 8 days from purchase to delivery. I see it's even cheaper now. Use this link for the best deal as I search with this sellers listings and the only dock I found had much more expenseive shipping.

Hmmm, let's hope so. Looks like a great device. I hope there aren't any supply issues this time around.
