I'll assume that's the one that finishes with 'y' :-)

I wish they'd establish a NZ presence so to speak. Some healthy competition from an experienced company with large pockets would, I think, only be good for everyone.

I am a user of both sites, it would be getting well off topic (and probably fruitless) to go on about the issues but as a nett purchaser I find the local one distinctly unfriendly towards me. The other has, for some time, been a much better option for your average user IMO, I trust it works well for whatever you're doing.

Incidentaly I see that 'auctionbar.co.nz' is currently available

to the OP: if you just going to use it for personal usage (as you said) then I'd say go ahead and do it!

IceTV (an Australian EPG provider) vs Nine (TV Channel in Australia) was an interesting case
