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.
