Dick Smith have parallel imported Google Wifi 3 packs on sale for $389 compared to the RRP $599 from the NZ retailers. 

 

Has any one had any experience using a US version in NZ?

US version may possibly not support Channel 13, depends if its a hardware or software limit.

 

 

 

Potentially could have different RF limitations, Often US based devices are hardware locked rather than software.

My Google Wifi that I purchased over a year ago from www.amazon.com works fine in NZ.

I'm looking at the Google Wi-Fi Mesh unit a well from Dick Smith. They have 2 units – one from each sold via Dick Smith (DS – Kogan Australia) and Dick Smith Electronics (DSE – Kogan Hong Kong) – both priced at $389 and one claiming to be a NZ/AUS models and the other international but with AU/NZ Compliant Generic Power Adapters.

 

Did you end up buying yours from Disk Smith? If so what was your experience? Both models above are parallel imports, and I am conscious about the ability to return a product as well as warranty.
