#1

As per title, anyone know where it can be sourced in Australia? :confused:


#2

Check www.ebay.com.au, you’ll find plenty there.


#3

I was going to post the exact same question. Don’t need it baddly enough to go to e-bay yet though.


#4

Yeah same. e-bay is usually my last resort.

I got mine really cheap from iMart off eBay with 2 free DVD+R discs as a trial.

Define really cheap? I’m interested in buying one too.

NEC or who ever distributes them in OZ needs to act very quickly other wise they are going to miss the boat and people will go pioneer because they couldn’t be bothered waiting any longer. From a market share point of view I wouldn’t have thought NEC would have wanted to have such a long time between when the pioneer was released and when their drive was released.


#8

Yep, and this is what I have now done, just purchased a Pioneer DVR-108D as I couldn’t source the NEC 3500, and I just don’t feel all that comfortable with e-bay, but that’s just me.

For those Queenslanders that are interested Umart is currently selling the Pioneers for $156.00, and yes they bear the official Australian Pioneer holograph, so they aren’t a grey import.

Awwww, now you tell me, after I have just purchased the Pioneer! :rolleyes:

Oh well, I hope the Pioneer will serve me well.

Hows about just under $140 shipped to your doorstep?

Now where do you get that? I’m thinking of getting it from MSY next week otherwise.

i-Mart Store: http://members.ebay.com.au/ws2/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=i-martstore

These people are very reliable - I ordered the NEC ND-3500A with a pack of trial DVD media and I got the drive two days after I deposited the money into their bank account!

They have been on E-bay Australia for 2-3 weeks now, selling at around the $170 (through bidding) mark. Haven’t seen any stores selling them


#17

www.msy.com.au has NEC 3500A now.

Thanks, just had a look in their pricelist, only the 2510 is listed?

Thanks to Locutus too, but doubt I would go the Ebay way for an optical drive (warranty issues)

Just found this thread:
