This begs the question "Will they work here"?

cokemaster: Yes it should work fine.
The only thing you have to be careful about is the power adapter which might not be a multi-voltage one. In saying that my Ipod photo power charger is. Note that you don't have to use it to charge the Ipod.
One other thing to beware of is that the Itunes music store has not been released in New Zealand yet. Some people have been able to use the Ausi store but its just a word of warning. You'll still be able to use the video component but you'll need to encode the files yourself.
