Dear FMs,

Now I have the real dilemma of - "What Should I Buy" as I am going to US in the coming week for some 5-6 days. I am currently making my list on Amazon.com to see which all products which I can carry back to India which is cheaper in US as compared to the prices in India. Few of them finalized are - Logitech Universal Remote, Roku 4K Streaming Player, RGB Lights and connectors, google wifi system, Netgear Nighthawk X10 router and Philips Hue Play. Apart from these can I get some suggestions as what else can be bought in US during this trip which can be used in my HT building planned in April at my new apartment. I was also looking for some banana plugs for speakers but confused as which brand to go for..Can I please get some recommendations as I have options like FosPower, Sewell, Monoprice, Deadbolt, Mediabridge, WGGE, Kabeldirekt,Postta...

Banana plugs: Sewell Silverback or GLS Audio Locking Series.

Universal remote: While Logitech is out there at the top, it is also quite expensive. You can try the GE universal remote

Also, you get the surge protector for cable TV:

And some isolation feet:

If you get a chance to audition bookshelf speakers, try the triangle borea bro3 and elac reference premiere.

Enjoy :)

No worries, as long as it is within acceptable customs limit. Think about your convenience though, like how would you carry it. In my case, I checked in the package which I received from amazon. Also the weight, I think it's 50 lb for economy and 70 lb for business per baggage.

Consider price difference and size of the items you select. The shield pro, I threw the box/package etc and just put the item between clothes, in check in baggage.
