    We have a list of recommended shops in the priceguides section. I would not recommend anything in Chinatown except Manly.

    Linchen,
    Never place a deposit if u don't know the shop owner or salesperson well. Once money goes, the service goes. You'll have no bargaining power when he later come back to tell u sorry the price quoted is for different model- the model u wanted is +$xxx, and u just have to agree to new higher price as he won't return yr deposit there are tonnes of other tricks these shops use, the key thing is don't put yrself in a disadvantaged position by forking out money first. Hope that helps. Another example in sim lim is shops will offer an exceptionally low price but when u go there they say no stock, then if u place deposit and order the price will increase and they will say the price u saw was old price- same tricks, different packaging... Hold on to yr $$$.

    There is only one shop in Sim Lim that can be recommended: Orient Photo, 6th floor. Skip the rest, period.

    TS,i tink the shop that u have mentioned is People's Audio in People's Park Complex...No comments about the selling price there though i know they deal mostly with tourists & they have limited models.You should really head down to Funan to shops like SLRR,TK Foto,John 3:16 & compare prices between these shops...Cheers!
