Firstly, they dont have branches.
Second, they are not located at CBD area.
Any comments are welcome...

Some people might view this kind of post as provocative. What exactly are you asking? I think the preponderance of opinion here is that they are indeed trustworthy, lack of branches (since they ain't a tree) notwithstanding.

First of all, is a shop considered not trustworthy if it doesn't have branches?

You declare that a shop is trustworthy from the services it provides, not if it's big or small.

first, they are not a tree, hence no branches :bsmilie: jokes aside, they have shops in AMK and Yishun.

second, they have been around since the '50s. and location in CBD area doesn't automatically mean trustworthiness. you have black-listed shops EVERYWHERE.

third, no complaints from me whatsoever so far. know what you buy, and you are safe. this rule is the same anywhere.

last...what's your point?

if you want to buy from a company that's located in CDB area and housing estates and have many many branches, wait for 7-11 to sell cameras loh ;p


MS Color offers good services and competitive prices. The "non-location" in CDB area means lower costs and potentially better prices.

Don't mean to flame you..but your assumption about MScolor is totally wrong. So what they do not have branches, not in the CBD?

They are easily the friendliest shop I ever been to.

Firstly, they have a branch in Yishun. So your 1st point is down the drain.

Secondly, if you are located in the CBD, your fix cost is higher, that to say it is more difficult to pass cost savings to us consumers. So, does it matters whether MScolor is located in CBD or not.. I don't give a hoot about that. Will be more concerned if they move away from AMK.

My advise to you, please go visit them and judge for yourself. I can bring you there if you want.

Personally, I'm happy with MS Color's service (esp Florence) and pricing. YMMV.

Cheers!

First... I would like to ask...

How do you determine whether they are trustworthy thru that post...

Have you visit them?

Trustworthy is no dependent on the size of company...

Locating in non CBD area may also mean that they may offer better discount...

Don't flame him lah, I guess his no branches meaning how big they are and hence how strong. I would take this into consideration if they give shop warrenty. Imagine what happens when you buy something and you don't mine having shop warrenty than 2 mths later they close down ????. If warrenty comes from original manufacturer than of course no problem lah.

BTW every shop also have their black sheep, I also ever go to MS Colour and they see me transparent. I ask about things and I get no reply !!!.
