Hi, is electrical goods cheaper in Hong Kong than the UK?
We are thinking on buying a ipod docking station to listen to music on. Is it better to buy it here or there?

Any advise appreciated.

Thanks

Personally I dont think there is a great difference in price, there used to be, but there is a much bigger choice in HK. :)

you don't have V.A.T. like there is in UK (so it 's at least 21% cheaper). However, I would suggest you get it from a major dealer/chainstore such as Fortress or Justco and don't buy from markets, street traders or Sham Sui Po (most of the dealers there are honest....... enough, but there are a lot I wouldn't trust further than I could throw a cement truck)

I would argue the vat point! when I priced cameras, video, etc it didn't make that much difference, but I would agree buy from a trusted source.
