    Default Are these stuff consider very cheap compare to Singapore?

    Hi all,

    I'm on training at Minneapolis, US and saw some stuff might be very cheap compare to singapore.

    Circuit City Shop:
    ScanDisk 2GB CF Ultra II selling at USD$35, SGD$53
    Samsung NV10 10MP selling at USD$300, SGD456 ( slim )
    Samsung NV3 7.2MP selling at USD$250, SGD380 ( slim )
    Samsung S730 7.2MP selling at USD$130, SGD200 ( not so slim )

    All the 19" Samsung LCD selling at USD$190-$230.

    I guess electronic stuff is selling very cheap at US right?
    My remaining pocket money only allows me to get the Samsung S730, so I'm thinking of getting one camera instead of keeping the $$ and change back to SGD$ when i return, since the camera is so cheap there right?

    Need advice thank you.

    hi... i actually saw on a site in US that is selling the samsung nv series camera at a cheaper price.. hope this might help.. www.adorama.com

    i actually wanted to order from there.. but there's a slight problem because of the shipping thingy that needs help with.. other than that will be the warranty.. don't know whether the warranty will still be valid in singapore or it's an international warranty..

    Thanks... I will leave office and unable to do online shopping already.
    Anyway, i decided to go on with my bulky 10D @....

    Save more $$ and wait for next trip to US.
    Survey more then get a better deal.

    Thread closed and thanks to Jacky who responsed.

    generally big electronics are cheaper over here because of the supply and demand.. alot of consumers buying electronics.
    as of late, the prices are not as great due to the weakening dollar.

    most made in USA stuff are cheap in US. Try getting some coach handbags or something. I was told it costs like 60+USD there while selling for over $500SGD here.

    darn true, esp to japanese... haha... we're suckers all togethers... they try to buy asian items and price it higher there while we try to buy US stuff at higher price here, then the middle man smile happily to the bank.
