Have been looking on price spy. How would I go about buying an HDD on the net, and is there shipping costs involved?

This is the one I want for $90:

But would be willing to go for this one which is $1 cheaper:

Any help is appreciated. I only know how to buy stuff on Trademe.

Go to the shops site, select the goods, most will say you have to make up an account with them if you dont have one. Enter in the details required, your Address, credit card details, anything else thats asked for (some have the option to pay by other means), then they send you out the goods. Some places do have free shipping some dont.

Make sure you keep any transaction details that are provided to you, could be in the form of a screens shot etc, just in case something goes wrong.

Zcom have free shipping so even though it is only the 4th cheapest on Pricespy it works out the cheapest if you need to have it shipped.

Just buy it from their site using a credit card or make an internet deposit.

I've used Zcom a few times and had no issues with receiving goods in a timely manner. I've never had to send anything back to them though.

Zcom are OK for warranty actions - Well they have been in the past, I have a wholesale account with them, but only ever had to do a warranty claim twice over errrrrrrrrrrr 8 years approx.

Just remember with Zcoms pricing you have to add GST.

Computer lounge and Ascent, while not the cheapest both have free shipping and excellent returns policies

Do any of the places do Bank Deposit's?

None of my family has credit cards and Bank Deposit is the easiest for me (will be bought with my bday money).

Most should, just you will have to wait till they can confirm the payment has gone through.

You may have to talk to someone at whoever you buy from, ask about direct deposit into their account and get the exact amount required, then once done get a screen shot and email that as confirmation of payment, some will send on that confirmation, others wont. If you dont let them know you are doing a payment directly, then they wont know who its from.

Computer Lounge to Bank Deposit. This is where a Debit Plus card can come in handy if you don't want a credit card or are too young.

Zcom do bank deposit - in fact they don't do credit card (bit of a pain at times).

Is this a good site? It looks like I can get it, including shipping for $88.99. I'm all ready to buy, I just wanna find the best company and the best deal (and one that does bank deposits).

Well, i'm gonna go ahead and give it a go, the reviews for the company on pricespy are great, minus 1 or two bad ones, all the rest are saying what a great company it is.

Hopefully they do bank deposit's, we'll have to see.

They most likely do. Pretty much every business I've dealt with allows it.

Well I did it (yesterday and forgot to reply). The money will be going in tomorrow. I emailed telling them this and they were very quick and prompt. And for the first time, It's all under my own name.

Ouch, $106.90 for the same hard drive I've just bought for $88.99 from Playtech.

Oddly, I must have bought it at the right time, they must've had a special, as it's now listing on their site at $99: http://www.playtech.co.nz/afawcs0139235/CATID=235/ID=15034/SID=324860507/productdetails.html

Elive are good

And lately I buy all my drives from PB tech

They swapp[ed one last year when I thought it was faulty but I think it was my fault.

Much better to buy a big new drive from a reputable retailer than off the back of a TM truck.

They are really cheap now!

Have the drive in, with windows installed, just putting back my files. I've already got my browser back to the way it was, history and all. Speed is night and day difference.
