    Saw the aigo P881 White $699. 160G HD, music, video,game,photos.....SD card expansion slot .Not sure whether can download straight from camera to it or not as me using CF. Can use a card reader if not. size slightly bigger then ipod 80G, very itchy now,will use it mainly for backing up and viewing of photos if I buy. Very expensive thought...

    Yep, went there yesterday around 11.30am and was very disappointed. Agree!!! Everywhere Harvey Norman sign...Might as well call it the Great Harvey Normal Year End Sale...though I really doubt if it is really a "sale" or just plain gimmick.

    And true, many of the items u seek for, all you get is "sold out" IMPOSSIBLE. Barely half hour? Maybe they hav eonly a couple of items at that price.

    Certainly not worth the time and the crowd.

    i'm sorry to say you cant blame the part time staff over there. Most of them are generally students having their hols, trying to make some money. And you can't blame them for not knowing where is certain booth either, they are not information counters! Furthermore, they are the same as you, they just reach there at like 1030am? Please kindly spare a thought for them. Thank you
    stop the time.

    If you are a big company, can you maintain such a large sales force for the entire year? Staff nowadays are kinda hard to keep and we are talking about IT show. Companies like Sony, Canon, Nikon and etc sell few thousand cameras at any show and require 20-30 promoters at least to cover the number of enquiries of people squeezing in to buy a camera.

    Maybe some food for thought, have you thought about in Singapore not everyone is as rich, can just walk into a shop and purchase a few thousand dollar of photography equipment in cash. Some people would prefer an installment payment of their camera which I believe shop in sim lim charge a premium for. But most importantly, alot of the promoters there are poly/uni student trying to earn a living or pocket money as their family are not as well do do as other. One may spend let's say 2000 on a DSLR but to the promoter, 2000 may well be his poly sch fees for half a semester. Last year, I work as a promoter for Samsung LCD for one of the show. A man bought a 50" LCD television for his 12 year son so that he can play PS3 for $7000+. I was like $7000 is my one yr tuition fee in NTU. From a former promoter perspective, I would say give everyone a chance. Not everyone is born out to be a photographer. Give them some time to learn.

    Of coz I do agree with you on one point. Sales staff will have to be well trained however For compact camera, I believe is ok to have part time promoters as most of the consumers just want a small and nice camera. For DSLR, is a different story after all. The sales staff or promoter should be someone with well experienced with the product plus able to explain strong points of his/her product. I was there ystd with my cousin. She wanted to buy a entry level DSLR so she walk around Sitex with me and her dad. The olympus promoter (his name was amos if I was not wrong) was good, was explaining the selling points of his E-system E410 to my cousin. After that, we proceed to Nikon where the promoters knows nuts about the camera. When ask compared against Canon or Olympus, why is should we buy Nikon over the former two. All he said was is cheaper than Canon and better than Olympus. He couldn't even take me what is white balance bracketing or expsoure compensation. We did not walk over to Canon as it was packed. Her dad also couldn't believe the standard of that particular promoter. He uses S5 pro so if that promoter had serve us well, 95% my cousin would have gotten the D40x. Now my cousin is considering between E410 and 400D. I usually get my new body from a Canon promoter whom is there every show. Can't rem his name but he is quite plump but he serve with a smile.

    well i dont balme the PT staff they are earing allowance , but i guess the company should be blame . they can spend millon on advertisment . i think they should put the same for thier services as well they should have a Staff training for Pt staff as well , not just asking students to come and do Pt and put them on ground and tell them , if dont know just ask the senior staff. that the case it always happened .training them then are put on ground . as for the spec of item like camera , tv and others , i know they dont know let that leave it to the pros of the company . i was there trying to purchase somthing 1st like keyboard , u know what happned i ask where to pay , the Pt look at me blur . and start asking where to pay .second was the Printing paper i was trying to purchase it so funny i ask what the price that was selling at retail price outside . he ask me u say lor , how much is much .


    there one part , i was at epson booth . i ask if there any thing comparable to Canon Ip4500 . guess what they show me somehting like 6 mths back model , so more it was from their full time staff . i just smile and walk off. guess they didnt study thier rival well
