    I dun have problems buying at CP but that does not mean their prices are the best. I am also not a regular there but they give me discounted prices on the spot. Guess it depends who you talk me. I usually look for David and Steven if it helps.

    Wah. Even CP becoming so like thåt?!
    Jialat. Not say they sometimes sell cheap.
    Maybe they're business is somehow suffering,
    and they need desperately to recoup losses
    via 'tokking' innocent new customers.

    Ya I totally agreed with what u said.. You must have an idea of how much the item cost before going there.. They will normally push stuffs which is not selling or have alot of stocks left 1st.. But then they are running a business, guess thats avoidable.. But still feel they should b abit more honest.. We, the customers, trust them thats y give them business mah..

    1. Check price first from Clubsnap or friends
    2. Never buy something unfamiliar based on their recommendations on the spot.
    3. Always ask firmly "Discount already should be how much?" OR "Actual price is how much?" to hint them that you know the printed price tag are always way above the true price.

    Ya I think they are not that familiar with where their stocks are.. I went with my friend last week. Got 1 guy asked for a battery grip for D200 and this salesman was looking high and low for the item in the end couldn't find, ask another of his colleague who didn't know where is the item also.. End up they told that guy maybe out of stock, asked him come back tml..

    Their knowledge of the items they sell are oso quite limited.. 2 guys were there to look at 350D and D70S.. They were doing some comparisons, asking the salesman about CMOS and CCD sensors. I remember clearly 1 guy asked what sensor is the D70S using.. The salesman seems stunted by the question and immediately consulted another colleague whom I guess is more senior. This senior colleague did not know the answer too, end up they just took a D70S brochure and pretend to flip through it and then informed the guy that D70S is using Nikon own sensor and this sensor is one of the best in the world.. Haha i feel like laughing out man.. Correct me if I am wrong, I thought Nikon CCD sensor is made by Sony? Anyway I feel if they do not really know the facts, maybe they can just inform us instead of giving the wrong infos..
