Postby ianlaird » Tue, 14 Aug 2007 11:43 am

Hi all,

Moving to Singapore this weekend from HK, will be in a Service Apartment for 1st month then need to get my own place.

main question is!

Where can i buy a good 32-42 inch LCD TV / PLASMA TV!!!

back in scotland you can get a LCD HD for 900SGD so looking for similar prices for 32 and i know i will pay a big bit more for 42

PLEASE HELP

I've bought a few electronics from Harvey Norman and Best.
I'm sure they're not the chapest, but the prices actually seem fairly reasonable - unlike places in the UK where High Street stores rip you off in a big way (eg Dixons !).

To be honest, spending a week looking for the best price to save $50 isn't really worth it to me.

Sim Lim/Funan is always worth a look for electronics, and remember to barter - even in the High Street stores !
A free TV wall mount or even home cinema is always nice !!

(the TV i bought was expensive, and the offer of a free home cinema had recently expired - I just asked that they extend it a little longer for me)

Not a bad deal at all. The monthly rate is pretty good too.

Just make sure you know the cost if you ever have to break contract and don;t make the 28 months.

I bought mine from XXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Stress- free and cheap! They have a largest TV Panel to select from.

Darn shame. You registered today, made 5 posts all doing nothing but mentioning XXXXXXXXXXXXX. Sure appears to advertising to me. Too bad. You have won a locked account. Good Deal yeah?

Yes my ego is in tatters :D

Ok here we go ( i know i shouldn't SMS :P )

You will note it's 30 months and you will need an employment pass that is at least as long as the contract ....so 30 months.

The LCD i quoted a few months back was a different deal.

The current deal ( if you take time to do your sums) means you pay 20 dollars extra a month for the TV = 30 X 20 bucks so the TV costs 600 Dollars ....hardly free eh?

zac has the right idea ...get down audio house an pic the TV you want!

Cheers

The only problem is is that zac is advertising although he'd deny it probably. Otherwise why register to only make 5 posts all of which mention XXXXXXXXXXXXX? #-o ](*,) :oops!:
