There are many dealers for the NEC in Singapore, you can find them at www.nec.com.sg. The quotes I got were around SGD8,000 plus/minus a few hundred, I would order it from the States and have someone bring it back to you, or shipped, it would still cost less than what you would pay here in Asia, there just are not enough volume here for the kind of discount you get in the States.

At the moment you can find the LT150 for U$2,443. They charge me another U$180 for the shipping, still thought it ended up much cheaper then buy it in HK. The only complain I have with PC Super deals was that it took them three weeks before the shipped it. Once shipped it took only three days "door to door".
If you so some surfing you might find it even cheaper. Unfortunately I found out that most don't do international shippments.
For those in Singapore, you might want to consider the NEC VT540 instead. NEC was having a promotion on this unit, I got it for less than SGD 5,000. I too was considering ordering the LT150 from the States but since there was this offer, decided to get it instead, partly due to warranty and support considerations. I have not regretted my decision. One of the main differences is that the LT150 does not have a zoom function and unless you have a big place, getting a big projected image will be a challenge. At least with the VT540, I could use the zoom function to get a big image with a relatively short distance.
Comparing the LT150 with the VT540 is a little bit like comparing apples with peers. Yes, they both from NEC but one is a DLP and the other a LCD. They both have their pros and cons. If you are looking for an LT150 I assume you are looking for the DLPs advantages.
I don't think you have to worry about not getting warranty if you didn't buy it in your home country. This is because most of the projectors are primarily for travelling business presentation, so most of them carry international support and service warranty. Hack, the projectors all come standard with power cords for different countries, and will except 100-240 Volts 50~60Hz. You will be dealing with NEC Sevice direct and not with the dealer who sold you the projector. For the NEC LT150, please check NEC website.
