I used Australia Air Overnight and the Shipping was $16.50..
Oh yer they havn't updated the link from $246 to $236 so post em' and email and they will give it to you for the $236.. Oh one last thing I am in SA.. There are a couple other shipping types but I don't know which is better I think the Air and the Overnight sounded good to me :)

Hi Joel

I'm sus about cws shipping as it was the most expensive package. Even if you took into "volume" weight it shouldn't weigh more than 1-3kgs. I've got a freeby 6x burner atm so I'm still considering if I should dish out the money for it. My main concern is that it doesn't have a fan. Does the drive get hot? My old yamaha was an oven. And how about burning.. do the disc come out really hot or just warm? Any great stories you got to convince me to get one haha!

Cheers mate.

Apparently it weighed in at 5kg's.
I havn't actually had a chance to burn anything yet as I havn't had the time, I will probably get around to it within the next day or two..
I will let you know how hot the disk gets :)
From what I've read I am not going to upgrade the firmware I'll stick with the 5s07 one..

Ok...

First I erased a RW Disk then I Burned around 450megs on it..
I then realised I had left something out so i erased the disk again and reburned around 450meg.. (Nero 5.5.5.1)

Both times the disk felt slightly warmer than my finger tips

Then I burned a backup of my Office 2K Pro Disk 2.. (Publisher) on a CDR disk at 24x that took around 3mins 30 (write).. (Clone CD 3.1)

The disk again came out barely warmer than my finger tips..

The drive is a lot quieter than my old SCSI 8x read 4x write.
The drive also has never vibrated..
The drive also has kept quite cool.

But then again there is a lot of air flow in my case due to the overclocked Duron 900 @ 1150 @ 1.85v using a PAL8045 Sunon 56cfm fan
and two 56cfm case fans sucking and blowing.

I am very very happy with the drive and would highly recommend it.. :)
Oh yer.. I'm using Win2k Pro..
