Thought I'd share a tip if any of you gamers are interested in Razer products ( It's awesome gear but it's very pricey here! (That's not the tip actually...)

You can order directly from the Razer online store, go to Shop, Buy Direct, and select Asia-Pacific (not Australia) and buy at the US price. With the exchange rate being so good you can save quite a bit. Usually those savings get blown on freight, so what surprised me most is that it has free international shipping as well. Saved $70 on a Megalodon headset. I normally shop at Computer Lounge but this was too good to turn down...

Where do you get the free international shipping idea? It says $25.91 for NZ.

EDIT: Actually, you're right. I'm getting conflicting info from different parts of the site.

Wow that headset sounds great! (no pun intended)
I'm so tempted, right now with the current exchange rate, it would be $183.16 delivered.

I saw comments about people experiencing audio cut-outs with Win 7 x64.  Has there been any resolution for this?

I believe that was a very old (9-12 months ago) problem which was rectified in new firmware. I have had zero problems with my set which shipped with the latest firmware.

Ahh thanks.  About to make an order, but can't find the $5.00 voucher which came with my Lycosa keyboard!  I've spent an hour searching for it... I guess it's a question of how valuable is my time? Tongue out

EDIT: Found it! It was in my emails.  I could have sworn it was a printed coupon that shipped with it.  Nevermind, order made, looking forward to receiving the Megalodon Laughing
