    Hey,

    My friend is coming from Singapore this diwali, just wanted to check what is the best item to get from there ?

    Few things which i need right now -

    1. LCD - 40"-42". Sony/Samsung/Panasonic/LG
    2. 10" Tablet with 3G

    Will it make sense buying from Singapore.

    Please advice, also provide information/links etc.

    Thanks in Advance.

    When I was there, I saw cameras were cheaper than India. So would make sense to get a good Camera if needed.

    LCD / LED don't really make sense, and remember that airlines have now started charging passengers for carrying TVs over 32 inches ( Around 145 SGD ). So no longer a cheaper viable option.

    Not really when you factor in handling charges by the airline which can be between 7-10k

    Best shop in Singapore is Niranjan, it is a surd's shop in Little India, pretty easy to find if you ask around there. Cheapest prices barring the deals that might be on as the festive season is about to start, so keep an eye out for that.
