I think you got this the wrong way round. The youngsters in the markets see a Non Chinese face and mark up automatically. The guys in Star house are either professional outfits, box shifters ( 2C ) or experienced retailers.
Got some REAL sweet deals out of this place over the years, always by being a genuine purchaser, doing my homework and NOT taking the piss on price.
The Fujitsu shop is expensive I grant you, but then again this brand runs along the same path as the Apple shop. Can't get decent deals, but thats well known.
Samsung CLP500N - colour laser printer , networked enabled PnP ( last year cos now its some other number) HKD1700. EVERYWHERE else over 2.1K in line with the Epson and HP printers. AND -- ( 2C ) they delivered this weighty beast to my office for free - within the hour.
Downside - its cheaper to buy a new printer than buy the replacement toner cartridges !
Laptop memory HKD180 , SSP and WC wanted from 220 to 320 for same item !!!
The software shop there has great info on what to buy and what NOT to buy. All genuine and if he says " don't buy the full version, the upgrade at 1/3rd price is enough " -- well , what better recommend can you have.
