Someone asked about electronics and wether to bring them or buy them here.
Here are some of the prices I saw in the store lately:
Sharp Microwave 1000watts that is large enough to fit an extra large dinner plate or medium casserol dish 1200 EL
Krups Stainless Stick blender 200 EL
Oral B Professional Care 7500 rechargable toothbrush 500 EL

Computer stuff is much cheaper in the states especially if it is something you got on sale. Most computer components are 110/220 so all you would have to buy is a plug adaptor. If you look on the electrical cord either where it enters the device or the actual plug part it will have it writen on there 110/220.
If you are coming from the states and are bringing a DVD player realize the DVDs purchased here will not work on it.

A middle of the road dish & reciever (for free TV only) was about 400 LE and another 40LE for installation. You can sign up for Orbits or Showtime but that would incure monthly fees. There is quite a lot of TV that is for free and in English.

Fox Series
CNN
BBC
MBC Max

EuroNews
Fatafeat (Cooking Channel: has quite a lot of english progams)
I am sure I am missing some. Most all of these channels have websites if you want to know more about their programming

When buying anything here in Egypt there are items made or assembled in Egypt and those that are imports. Anything imported will be much more in price compared to the Egypt made because of the import tax. Just because it is made in Egypt doesn't mean that it will be a name you never heard of. Toshiba makes appliances in Egypt. While Suzuki and Hyundai make cars.

Thanks a lot Tiny traveler it really gives me some ideas of the prices now but what is t and CSA?
CSA stands for Community Services Association and I am informed I can't list a website so maybe that was why ____ was changed to T in my post.
Private message me and I will email you a few websites that will be helpful to you.
If you don't see a way to private message me then make a few more posts I think it is 5 or 6 you have to make and then you will be able to private message people.
