All items are in Hastings.

I can personally deliver to Manawatu, Wairarapa, Wellington, Marlborough, Canterbury* next week.

* Canterbury not confirmed yet.

Make an offer on any/all. Will be realistic prices (think likely price on Trademe if I was patient, less 25%).

Would swap for approximately appropriate value with:
  • Facetime compatible iPod Touch
  • iPad
  • Decent modern brand name Android tablet
  • Galaxy S2
  • Galaxy S1
  • iPhone 3GS
  • TIVO (not the older ones)
  • Widescreen LCD (23" or higher)
  • Bedroom size TV with built in Freeview
  • Apple TV 2
  • Wii Games for young kids
  • Android 4.0 HDMI media player (or other good media player box)

Asus ENB 210 HDMI + DVI fanless PCI-E card. Cheapie one. Works perfectly. Handles 1080p content perfectly.


HP 19" Silver Bezel, 1280x1024, VGA only, no speakers.
*USED* in perfect working order and excellent cosmetic condition. No dead/bright/stuck or anything.


*USED* in average to good condition.

Ahanix D4 HTPC Case. Looks like a modern black amplifier. Fold down door for 2x 5.25" DVD drives. Built in green VFD.

Comes with basic PSU. Quiet enough for lounge use if you are not too picky (I only heard it at night when everything else was off).

Heaps of room inside.

Excellent condition, but front needs a good clean with alcohol or something, as I have young kids, and its covered in greasy fingermarks, and Im not sure on the best way to clean it. Its not awful, but it isnt looking pristine right this minute.

VFD screen is in perfect condition.

Front USB not working, as the port is physically damaged (kids!). Easily fixed or replaced.

Bright blue power led lights up room. Can be easily disabled!

Classy looking case, not a cheapie. 

Looks nice stacked with home theatre amp. (Same size).


*NEW* installed but never booted, as my CPU and RAM were not suitable.

Foxconn G43MX-K LGA775 Pentium Dual Core up to Core 2 Duo/Quad I think (including Celeron).
FSB 1333/1066/800
DDR2 667/800
6 channel audio


*USED* Perfect working order.

Hauppauge HVR2210 dual tuner Freeview HD terrestrial.
IR reciever.
Remote (the crappy Hauppauge one that you won't want to use).
Under Mediaportal, will record every channel on any two muxes at any one time. I think I have recorded about 6 or 7 channels at once with it!
Under Windows Media Center, just two channels at once (limitation of Windows Media Center).
