Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Thanks for that, as the only retailer in NZ that lists the item (however not in stock) I doubt there is a high likelihood they actually have stock. Unanswered questions left on the store's FB page a year ago "are you still doing business".

I've emailed them quite recently and they emailed back the next day but I haven't actually purchased anything so unsure what they are like.

My bad for not doing my due diligence but Pricespy is a good place to use if you want multiple choice in 1 place

Not at all, thanks for looking. Looking for something used i.e. cheaper.

Watch the power cable if you get a 1000w + one, since they are dual voltage and 1000w at 100v is more than 10A they often have the big IEC inlet usually used on servers etc, which means a 15A mains cable, which means a special outlet needs to be installed or you have to go all caveman builder styles and grind the pin down to fit a normal 10A outlet.

 

A friend complained about that and when I had a quick look I wasnt able to find a 1200W one with a normal plug on it for sale anywhere.

say what ? we use 240v here thus 10A been 2.4Kw AFAIK the standard US socket is rated to 20A @ 110V; 2.2Kw

They dont make specific ones for NZ, they are rated 100-265v, so at 100v the draw is more than 10A that the normal IEC plug can take, therefore they all seem to put the 15A version on them. I did find one 1100w one with a 10A inlet but it was from some junk brand.

This is looking pretty decent for sub $300 new. Good enough to power a tri GPU setup.

Scott over at techworld seems pretty good with me, we have passed quite a few emails over the past few weeks about an order.

 

I did get the impression its not his fulltime role, but certainly did go above and beyond for me.
