I thought it was related to the actual vendor sending it, but I've successfully ordered something delivered to the same address that I used here, and it allowed it.

Both times the order would be fulfilled by amazon UK.


Weird ???

It may be part of the 'conditions' of the special? Often specials are only offered in the country of origin, and are not applicable to anywhere outside of the dedicated region?

Have a look at the offer, and see if there's a link to terms and conditions anywhere?

Cheers

I was in the Sony shop at Gateway today looking for something to use as a monitor for my Mac. they have some pretty decent specials on at the moment, including a 32" LCD Bravia FHD selling for R3999. There were some other specials on the bigger sets, but I can't recall the prices, except that they seemed very reasonable.

I ended up buying a Samsung 27" FHD LED monitor with HDMI next door for only R3400. Very cool monitor - it even has built in speakers, so if you're looking for a small TV option without a tuner this might fit the bill nicely.

For those who enjoy both vinyl AND Metallica, read on.

Their web site (www.metclub.com) is selling the 45rpm 5LP deluxe edition of Death Magnetic for $43, vs. the normal list price of $99...

The only catch is that their shipping to SA is horrendous ($113), but if you have the option to ship to the US or UK (cost me $26), or to a forwarding service and get it here somehow, it's a great deal.

The small print further down says Q35. Even so, it's a good price me thinks.

the pic is a 55 - might be worth being careful - sounds to good to be true & has some inconsistencies....
