The downside of course being the warranty issue should something go wrong. The same supplier also has 'lightly used' (whatever that means..) machines for around $700 AUD (+ accessories)..worth thinking about perhaps?
I'm sorry, cannot see any saving, unless my math getting rusty in my old age oldman

S9 AutoSet from US delivered to your door ... AU $1100 (no rebate from your insurance)
The same machine bought from Australia AU $1900, take away $800 rebate from your insurance, that will leave you $1100 out of pocket
More or less, same cost but the Australian machine have an advantage of ResMed own warranty

Gently used machines are cheaper and as you say ".worth thinking about perhaps"
These machines comes with 6 months warranty, if wanted, you can always buy another machine as a backup
The machines are cleaned and tested, might have used for few hours, few hundred hours, or more ... the lower hours used is the better
If you're thinking of buying one, email them and they'll give you the run down of the machines, they're quite good at that
The S9 AutoSet proven to be reliable and popular machine

Machines are multi voltage, you'll need plug adapter or power cord
You can get an S8 power cord from local supplier or on-line from Supplier #13, does works with the S9 and AirSesne 10 power bricks
