    Usually, I buy my electronic stuffs from SLS and till today, I haven't had any problems whatsoever. And I always bought from those shops on Levels 3 upwards where you get those price lists.

    It is shrouded in mystery. But according to court documents, Nikon filed a claim against them and won, and has seized a lot of their stuff.

    prices are decent, salesperson tend to be gruff, i.e. no nonsense.. some people who like those sweet-talking salesmen.. e.g. "hi sir!!! how are you today... how was your day? what are you here to buy? can i help you?".. in that case you can go funan, there is this shop there that will give you that sort of service.

    Did anyone actually called the number of Lords and ask? Raymond should still be picking up the call. Anyone can verify please? Else I will call him tomorrow since I have his card. Btw, I last visited them on 26 Feb.

    i think he is still taking calls from what I read. I think he will join a neighbor's shop and operate from there.
