Cheers paulr, yeh adorama and bhphoto.com have used in the past. I have found the missing $25. It seems when u pay from a non us country (oz) and give to say Hong Kong in USD, it goes via JPMorgan in NY, and they take $25 cut...
Exportprive if advertise as a bank wire as method of payment should really advertise this fact...

I'd personally advise against using exportprive in the future then.

And BruceBanner, when it becomes available on Amazon.com in the USA, if the pricing is good and it doesn't kill us, I'll order one and send it to you. Just be patient,...

Well they have my $177 currently, will have to wait and see if they can return it easily or not, or figure out some other way to add the $25 they want, or whatever. No rush, looks like its been pushed back to late april for release.

And thanks Darkside, that's sweet Not so Dark after all

Happy to help any way we can. Use sales[at]bhphoto.com.

Spoke to exportprive last night, staff was very pleasant and understanding of my particular unique problems with the order (after a bank wire from Oz>HongKong, JP Morgan of New York took $25USD fee for the wire transfer leaving exportprive $25 short by the time the funds landed in their account).
I asked if they shipped cheapest possible this would only leave a deficit of $16USD to pay, she said she'd speak with her manager.
This morning I get an email saying that they won't do that, instead just buy a 16gb i9 with express shipping, this equates the same price.
I had to laugh seeing as I sold my old 16gb i9 about a month ago...

Actually I could do that.
But then I will probably need to access your exportprive account and everything.... Not really the smartest idea


In the meanwhile, I'm still waiting untill it's april 30.

It's ok, I resolved it with them yesterday. They gave me a special coupon code that I applied at checkout which reduced the player by $177.02 (the amount I have already paid). Then I created a new moneybookers account but in my wifes name not mine, and thus managed to pay the final $25 that they wanted. All in all tho I have now paid $50 more than I should have

I noticed the website was still not updated to say the player was in stock (still says presale with old date etc), and when speaking with staff on the phone I wasn't convinced they knew what they were talking about, they told me it was in stock and as soon as the payment cleared they would be posting it, contradicts your story....
Overall i'm disappointed in Exportprive, they did not explain how a bank wire would cost more, and only offer moneybookers or bankwire as form of payment :S
If i was a business and $177 arrived in my account and I was selling the product for $185 I would let it go this time (if only to promote good customer relations), Its not the customers fault JP Morgan in NY took $25fee, (and my own bank charged me an additional $25 also). They simply need to add 'Additional Fees Apply' and ask people to add an additonal $25 for transactions etc.. (or bare the cost themselves).
They don't even have facilities in their office to take credit card details over the phone :S
I won't be buying from them again. There are a couple of reputable sellers here in Australia, might be more costly and have to wait for the player to turn up, but I've paid dearly for my lack of patience.

I has the i9+ 32gb in my hands. I specified white but told them i'd accept black if it was an issue. The white seems to be rare or vaporware.
Review and pics to come.
