anyone suffered the same "injustices" in getting their digital camera!? ;(

it's either poor service or exhorbitant rates if u get from non official retail channels. even places like John, Parasilk, AP have given me a bad shopping experience. either out of stock or service lousy or price any-old-how jack up. :angry:

anyone wants to share? :what:

Have you tried CP and getting a e-quote from them?

How about tkfoto, maybe also get a e-quote from them?

IMHO, out of stock not = poor service or exhorbitant rates.

In terms of service... I don't understand why some people can 'tolerate' rude salespeople to get a somewhat 'lower' price from one shop, compare to better service with slightly higher price at another shop...

I believe paying slightly higher for good service. (but again how much more is up to individual to determine. Like expensive or cheap is a relative term)

Have u tried Lords Cameras at Lucky Plaza? I buy from a guy name James. His service is good and price is cheapest in LP and very comparable to CP and AP prices.

U can quote Jeff Chen who recommend you to him. He will try to give u a good price.

AP u can look for Mr Steven he is quite ok

CP service is quite ok but not necessarily the best price

bottom-line: get to know them as u buy things from their shop, would be much better in your next purchase

nope... the uncle is very free one today... i asked him for a camera's price, he even ask me to wait, then he go to a place sit down, till i go there and ask again... maybe i ask lots of prices??? (around 2-3 camera's price) :dunno:

all these jokers who give poor service should be undercut by some of us free enough to set up shop... we can even do it part-time .. like once or twice a week. cheapest in town, low margin, some kind of part-time money. since we hardly open we hardly need much rental, even those small carts in bugis junction etc is enough. and of course we provide very minimal service but just sell at the best price. after all, anything spoilt u go back to manufacturer.

THEN these jokers will be out of business and have to wake up their ideas.

Yes, I was thinking of setting up a shop myself, wld anyone like to join me?
yeah boy! i second that! :D

the service these days are atrocious! it's so difficult to get reasonably good service at good rates. most of them dun carry stock at all. u order then they get. so simple how come we dun set up shop ourselves huh? :what:

no inventory no cost to upkeep. onli concern is credibility of buyer... :eek:
