Didn't have issues with Expansys.co.nz when I bought her Samsung Galaxy Note 3 last year. Wasn't even stung for GST.

Why not try einfotech? They have an actual brick and mortar and pretty good prices.

depends. if the thing won't break or you don't mind chucking it away if it breaks that's fine.

everything has a risk of failure/fault - it will happen to someone. decide if ease of warranty/returns is important. with kogan i thnk you have to deal with hong kong ...

I've bought thru expansys, made a warranty claim and all was well, except of course it takes ages because you're dealing with the other side of the world.

+1 for einfotech

Just be wary as the devices are typically installed with Chinese bloatware, I bought a galaxy S a few years back that came with 8 Chinese pre-installed apps, I returned it as god knows what data they were slurping from me!
