    Was planning to buy an Ext HD for archiving purposes. Yesterday, while reading the newspaper, I thought I was in luck, Max*** is selling 500G Ext HD for only SGD150++, as advertised in the paper. But was quite disappointed when I got to EXPO and found out that the correct price is SGD370++. The guy simple explained that the ad in the paper is wrong.

    Typo Error or a Gimmick?

    370SGD is still an acceptable price for a 500gb..
    branding and quality wise.. in question.

    You're right man, 370 is still ok for that brand. But you can still get better prices from other brands though. But that's not the point...

    Points is, how the heck did they miss it? 150 is way off 370... Terrible!

    but, if u wanna buy laptops and printers, offers galore.

    leave ur cars behind.... i was there at opening hour and the car park was already 3/4 full. by 12pm, the car park was closed off by the cisco guards. fyi - apart from sitex and BBT, john little's is having their warehouse sale at the same time.
    Do they have lotsa LCDs? wanna get 1 big big screen one.

    Actually not a lot of LCD screens, as compared to the last I.T show. But this time they are cheaper... The last I.T show i saw BenQ, Viewsonic, LG, Samsung, Phillip, & other china & Taiwan brand.

    This times seems to have only LG, Viewsonic & Phillips. LG wins hands down in term of attractiveness of booth & models available. The Phillips ones seem old fashioned & expensive. They win telling ppl tat their high contrast of 1400:1 is better. It really seems to be so looking at the display images compared to Viewsonic & Phillips.

    The price of the LG seems very reasonable.
