Samsung products are cheaper in Thailand , since they have their factory there. other brands may be costly. the cost of samsung products are almost 50% cheaper than indian price (including the VAT refund). one of our forum member ravin is in BKK. you can PM him for further info. He may guide you.

Re: Thailand- the best place for buying TV in the grey market?

I bought a 40" Samsung LED Series5--40EH5000. Yes the price difference is substantial almost 40-50%. this model cost me 18000THB.
The airport officials at Bangkok handle them carefully as TV's are to checked in at a separate counter. In India they usually deliver them at the end and the staff will keep on asking for "chai-paani".
As long as the total value is less than 35000INR after conversion, the customs officials do not bother. However you need to show the proof like cash receipt or credit card payment slip.
inspite of one of the forum member suggesting to take a xerox of the bill, i missed it and i had to give the original one for VAT refund. so essentially i am without a proof of the purchase and hoping that the TV does not give any trouble.
2 places in Bangkok for electronics--Pantip plaza and Indira Market(electronics store at the ground floor)

Re: Thailand- the best place for buying TV in the grey market?

I had promised myself that the next time I go to Thailand I would get myself a big screen and finally last week the opportunity presented itself. After a thorough search in more or less all the malls of Bangkok I ended up being the most impressed by Samsung 43" Plasma 490 Series

Samsung 43" Plasma 490 Series - OVERVIEW | SAMSUNG

Its a 720P 3D Plasma TV with stunning visuals. I got the best offer at Indira sounds at Indra Market in Pratunam. Ended up paying $ 607= 19,000 Bahts and as part of the offer got 4 glasses free. At only one other place - the IT mall at Panthip plaza was I getting an equal deal but what swung the decision towards Indra Sounds was the fact that owners speak fluent Hindi and informed me that they end up selling 300 TVs every week to Indians !!!

Btw the Samsung International warranty is applicable for 1 year in India. Wd be posting a detailed review soon !

Re: Thailand- the best place for buying TV in the grey market?

Here is an update. On my last trip I had thoroughly searched ALL malls of Bangkok to find out the best deals and found out that the best place for buying TV are the following two:

(1)Power Buy Shops at some malls where you can get some particular models on sale price if you are lucky. They were offering a 43 inch L.G plasma for around Rs 20,000 and a 51 inch Samsung Plasma for around Rs 26,000. Both these models were non 3D.

(2) Indra Sounds at Indra square in Pratunam: Thats where I bought my TV from. In fact thats where 90% of Indians going to Bangkok buy their TV from and at any given time you would find at least 20 Indians in the shop. That shop gets so much business from us that the assistants have started speaking fluent Hindi !! According to him on an average around 100 TVs are sold to Indian travelers ever day.

Power Buy at Central:


L.G 42 incher for Rs 20,000 at Power Buy


L.G 42 3D


Samsung 51 inch Plasma


Indra Sounds at Pratunam:


Samsung 43E490

26k for Samsung 51 inch is a steal! What's the model number? E450 or E470?
