I can refer you to a local seller if you will go the Nvidia route. It may save you waiting time and the cost is competitive when competed to Amazon

Can you tell me who is a local seller as I am looking to get one and dont want to go the Amazon route due to delays in overseas shippting etc.

I know Geewiz sells the Shield locally but they told me there was a delay in getting new stock when I enquired recently.

I bought one from Amazon directly and later bought one from him and he was competitively priced Unless prices have changed due to exchange rate depreciation

Thanks for the offer Timbaland. I can currently get the Shield Pro (2019) on amazon for about R4500 shipped with tax and all with the current exchange rate. I see this other bloke asks R6200. I ordered something from Amazon the other day that took about 9 days to get here.

I see they have moved from Aramex to DHL. The Aramex folks usually took 2 weeks. So it seems that Amazon is currently the best bet.

At current price and exchange rate Amazon is better. He used to sell at R5200 and the rand was 19 to the USD

Just buy the universal adapter from TakeAlot, then it should work fine!
