Massive clean out of stuff that I have brought but don't use.  I am giving up on Android tables so hoping to fund a Surface Go LTE as my portable computing device to compliment my Note 9 (which is awesome).

 

Everything is used but in Good Condition unless otherwise noted. 

 

Shipping is slow post with tracking but happy to upgrade if the selling wants to pay the difference.  Small items - $5 shipping, large items $10 unless otherwise noted.  Rural delivery is extra.  Happy to do pickups\drop off if you are close.  I live in Rolleston and work in Riccarton (Christchurch).  I am aiming for half new price so happy to entertain offers if you think something is overpriced.

 

If I sell enough stuff I will also upgrade to a GZ premium membership to give back to the community.

 

Steam Link - stream games from your gaming computer via Steam Game Streaming to another tv.  Works well, I just don't play enough games to warrant it.  These are $122 NZD shipped on Amazon so asking $60. $10 shipping.

XBox 360 Wireless Controller x 2 plus Wireless PC receiver.  Great for gaming with your Windoze computer.  Receiver supports up to four controllers.  $75 + $10 shipping.

Razor Turret Lapboard.  Great for PC gaming on the couch.  This has just been replaced under warranty with a new unit so is box opened but as new.  Has all the bits and the protective plastic hasn't been taken off the sticky base of the charging dock.  Will combine shipping with the controllers if you buy both.  Only thing it's missing is the 2.4ghz receiver dongle.  They are available off the net for $20usd or you can just use bluetooth.  PB tech price is $300 so asking $150 + $15 shipping.

Belkin Wemo smart switch (model F7C027au).  I wrote the id number on one with vivid so I could tell them apart but never got around to the other two.  $20 each or $50 for all three.  $10 shipping.

Gear VR Controller.  Add controller to older model Gear VR's which makes the experience much much better.  Brand new still sealed in box.  These are $50 on trademe.  Asking $25 + $5 shipping.

TP Link 8 port Switch.  8 months left on the warranty (PB Tech, receipt supplied).  It was $38 from PB tech so asking $20 + $5 shipping.

Bluetooth keyboards * 2.  Brought for my kids BYOD ipads but they never used them.  They are bluetooth so work with anything abut as physically sized to clip onto a iPad Mini 2 and iPad (not air).  $10 each + $10 shipping.

Apple Magic keyboard.  One of the best quality bluetooth keyboards you can buy cos Apple.  Very small scratch in the alimimum on the top of the battery cover.  Takes two AAs (not included).  $150 from PB tech.  $75 + $10 shipping.

Are the bluetooth keyboards ipad specific physically or will they suit a Samsung tablet sitting in them as well ?

Yeah they were like $20 at last years EB stand at Armageddon. Was tempted, but they were asking like $80 for the controller so passed on it.

Gear VR controller SPF

 

 

 

Happy to entertain offers for the Steam Link although I don't want to give it away.  It has bluetooth so you can just use a Xbox one controller.  You could also buy the two Xbox 360 controllers with the pc adapter.

 

 

 

@Chief Trash Bandit Can you also measure the Sammy tab and tell me how wide it is.

Just to add, Steam Link is also available as software now on Android, some smart TV's and raspberry pi for free. It's otherwise a nice little device for in-home streaming but made redundant by Valve too quickly.

Are you guys making me offers cos i am sure there is a forum rule about not commenting on prices. I paid $75 of Amazon back in the day and all happy to keep it so the kids can play (laggy) games during our beach holiday.

I think it will probably work.  Put it this way, the Sammy Tab S (first version) I tried was 1mm from fitting and that model had 16:9 screen ratio so was quite wide.  If yours is the more square screen res it should work but measure it and send me the measurements to confirm.  What I would say is that it sits in the slot nicely but if you start tapping on the screen it can wobble a little.  You are better off with a case with built in stand and then just using the keyboard detached.  Measure the width of the tab and I will confirm.
