I think this will be more of a cheap marketing research
I like NZXT but their use of facebook only contests is bullsh*t

It should be an option to opt out BEFORE you press submit. Just like every other site I've been on.
This isn't a Facebook contest...
entry is here: http://competitions.bit-tech.net/win-the-newest-release-h2-chassis-from-nzxt-
Pity its UK only.. Tom's is the same only to the US..
We in Aus get left out all the time... give some to your friends from down under next time?
Since the United States citizens are excluded, along with any other citizen of Earth, except the United Kingdom, then the least NZXT could do is to only sell their products to U.K. citizens.
If the rest of this planet isn't good enough to enter their contest then we certainly aren't up to snuff when it comes to purchasing their wares.
I just LOVE the way these types of igmo's, including U.S and other countries sites, enjoy shooting themselves in their own wallets! If a company wants to be part of the Global Economy then there should be no prejudism in excluding any single person on Earth from their promotions.
uugh didn't see the only UK residents thing until after I entered =/ oh well. And for all you people complaining about the region limitation I live in Hawaii. Even if the competition said it was open to the US there's a good chance that it would only be open to those in the continental US. Region specificity also gives those who can enter a better chance to win. If it were completely open to the world and they gave away *one* first place and *one* second place prize the chances of each entrant winning would plummet to near 0. As it is even with just the UK the chances of winning are near 0 for each entrant. You wouldn't want it to be any worse if you were one of those who could enter. Also remember this is a UK forum so it's obvious that stuff would be more UK centric.
I was so happy it wasn't a Facebook/Twitter only competition, I didn't see that.
On th page of the competition it doesn't say it's UK only, but that's because the best thing is hidden here though: Terms and conditions
"Competitions open to UK residents only, unless otherwise stated."
Out of the goodness of it's heart NZXT has updated this competition so that it's now enterrable by bit-tech readers from UK, Europe and USA and Canada.
Enjoy and good luck.
Wow that's awesome . Question though. If I entered before this update do I need to enter again?
You shouldn't have to, unless the address you entered was outside the UK, but TBH I don't know for sure.
Nice! so if i win and live in Denmark, i have to pay for shipping or what?
Who cares? It will be a fraction of the original price, and NZXT makes some really good stuff!
If the shipping price, if any, proves to be too much for you, you can always forfeit/decline the reward and it will be offered to someone else.
Yeahhh, thanks Bit-Tech and NZXT.
WOOT THANK YOU BIT-TECH for changing the requirements ^_^ *hugz* all I really need out of that is either of the NZXT HALE90 PSU as the white design and flat ribbons would go great with a project Im working on... by the way once I am closer to finishing thats when I will post the work log ^_^
Now that is a company that listens to it's customers
YAY! A competition I can enter! I am besides myself! I'm gonna go lie down for a while...
Edit: Thanks Bit-Tech and NZXT!
Still no love for your Australian or NewZealand cousins..
