In Hong Kong, there are many, many electronic stores located around Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po. However one should do his home work for pricing considering various exchange rates, also export models are available in multi-voltage and both PAL & NTSC formats. Be sure to double-check that all required accessories are included, frequently they will sell a unit @ a good price and then gouge the buyer for the accessories....
Additionally research about warranties, some are covered by global guarantees backed by up factory supported tech centers located in certain Euro countries.
Some brands/units are not covered...😡
There are some excellent buys but as mentioned above the buyer needs to do his homework before shopping!!
Final point, you should check if there are any significant tax duties as well when importing..
Just my $0.05.... 👍😉
