Guys,

A friend of mine is coming back from China in July end. Is it possible & worthwhile for me to get an LCD tv from him ? The following questions come to mind:

- Is there a significant price difference ?
- What about quality / warranty ?
- Import Duty / Taxes / Custom Problems ?
- Which brands ?

Any other thoughts / issues ? Apart from Pen Drives, any other things that can be got from China ?

cheap electronic watches, mp4 players, electronic stuff - as gifts for family.

Upto Rs 25k there are no taxes as such for electronics stuff.....jsut that dont carry 10 cameras, mp4 players, 20 watches etc. One or two items each is fine.

25k is the combined limit right ? If yes, that will be exhausted in an LCD itself.

Buttt... is it worth getting it from China... anyone has any experience of doing it ?

If you are into serious audio, there are a number of choices that you could pick up. You bring 1 or 2 pieces of equipment for 50-60K and you will be set for a loooong time. That is only if you are into it.

I can't comment on pen drives and such though looking at it from outside, it does not seem worth the deal.
