well, that explains why Daiso is selling so expensive!

aircon & cleanliness. should have guessed.

daiso can undercut market because they want volume, different strategy from acehardware. mrdiy is following normal retail strategy, import then rebrand to own brand, place next to big name product, but margin is much higher than big name brand

i dunno lol, but realistically its about the same unless you abuse it. like switching it on off on off in a few seconds. philips should last longer in that sense because of rigorous quality control by years of experience. but if you pakai baik baik jaga baik baik they should be the same.

btw i recently changed all bulbs to Qusun LED, 9watt only and in theory should last a lot longer than standard bulb. best part is little or no heat, i turn on for 5 minutes then pegang bulb stand also cool, no panas. very bright too, replaced old philips energy saving bulbs of 20w

ace memang overprice max. lets say identical product, philips 11w warm light E27, average costing in market is RM8.40, normal hardware shop will sell about RM12.90, mrdiy should be RM14.90, and acehardware will go up to RM21.90 or so. rough estimation la, not exact quote. acehardware goes for big margin, mrdiy goes for a balance of volume/margin, and daiso just want to win by volume so everything fix price
