Ok guys, I'm sold. I am going to buy a C860. Now the question is where should I look to purchase one? Anyone have any good stories / horror stories on vendors? I was thinking about Japan-Direct.com... They have a decent price, but I am concerned about obtaining a decent warranty. What do you guys think? Whats the dirt on vendors?

pricejapan.com is great. The owner stays in contact, provides shipping information and addresses concerns quickly. Also (hopefully no borderpatrol listening) he de-values the item so the import taxes (if you do get hit) are nothing.

I definately recommend them.

there's a bit of risk in devaluing the item to below the price the dealer pays, in that customs and excise can look at the shipping insurance, or the shipper will only pay for the value declared to C&E.

a good seller could thus set the price to perhaps *his* cost of replacing the item, minus the spares value of a broken zaurus (chances of severe damage might be much higher than the item going missing).
