Hi Guys

Need a bit of advise from your experience.
I just went to Desa Home theater S/B in Lowyat Plaza.

They sell many LCd there and i am looking at the 46A650 Samsung FullHD series with 100MHz.
I spoke to one of the guy (not nice to mention name), they push hard sale, looks a bit lansi la.. but i think still alright because the i only want good price. At first keep on asking for RM500 booking to secure the the price and they said price might go up.. bla bla bla... i wont take the bite that way

the price he quoted is RM6500, 1+2year warranty from samsung and 1 year all risk warranty meaning break, thunder, fall, thef etc...

My question is anybody tried buying from them?
will they give new units or if not, then how to check whether it is a display unit,
Sales after service?
The warranty is really what they ment?
Is the price good or you guys know a better price?

Need help because i am getting it for my wedding end of december 08,

Thank you very much guys..

Desa HT is trustable shop.. They able to give u good price really since they r considered big dealer.. To see whether it is display set or not, normally i think is to see the seal on the box.. If there is double slide tape then it is opened b4..

i cant say about the one in LYP. but i can say something about the one in Kepong.

it was a very pleasant experience. the salesman was very nice, pleasant, patient and friendly. didnt push at all....(except when saying the price i offer is only for today, u come another day i have to give u another price)

he asked me for my budget and i told him 7k. instead of directly pulling me to the Pioneer Plasma which was RM6999 he showed me a few which was around 4k+. actually the Pioneer was more of a side mention.

he also did a side by side demo for me to see for myself which is better.

as for the unit. i personally saw them bring out a brand new, unopened unit from the store. i checked myself before leaving the shop.

so yeah.... thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif for Desa HT.

The Desa at Lowyat Plaza sucks. They are very lansi and like very dont want to do business one. I walked in a few times, and I was treated like invisible man every time. Only one salesman there is good, the rest all can suck cock especially the old guy with blond dyed hair.

The Desa at Kepong is totally different story, they are really good in their service and also their price. I suggest you come to Kepong. Good Luck

price war would only mean the thing getting cheaper......getting you to pay a deposit is to lock you down at today's higher price....

for some reason i dont like this kind of sales tactic...

TS,


Got my LG pdp from DesaHT too. Good service from my sales guy but he is based in Kepong, not LY. Purchased at a home fair and self collected at Kepong in an unopened/sealed box. So far no problem. But LY branch really got 1 or 2 really lansi staffs, especially the experienced ones or old timer.


Regards.

That's true... The Desa LY ppl are pretty lansi... I walk in there for a few minutes, see their sour faces and got the hell out of there. Strolled over to Harvey Pavillion where a cute salesgirl allowed me to audition 14 HTIBs and still smiled at the end... smile.gif

We should exercise our power as consumers, say no to all these LCLY shops even if they're cheap, and pay 5% more for shops that give us genuine service (especially after-sales service). Let's keep the good sellers in business and kick all these rude buggers out that act like they're doing us a favor taking our hard-earned money.

Sounds nasty but I highly agree. If they keep such a lcly character in sales, business sure die la. Next time if u we are boss better avoid such a workers.

i strongly recommend you to go desa HT kepong, their staff much more friendlier than those in LYP. i bought few items from them and even got their services to "hang" my LCD for RM150 with bracket thumbup.gif

their shop is located inside Kepong desa complex, the previous Fajar, a very quiet shopping complex.

if you come from MRR2 batu caves, you will see it on ur left.

And yes to all, those in LYP are lansi shakehead.gif , i was told by their staff in kepong, the rental in LYP are higher so price cant nego much, i oso complained to them their collegue in LYP attitude got prob, then they replied..."yeah meh..where got..no la"

just in case someone is still reading this thread...i wud like to share my experience with Desa HT at Lowyat.

I was there today...checking out the TVs and Hifi sets...and i was around for a good 45mins or so...until my ketiak oso sweaty cos its kinda warm in there...and not one sales person even said hi to me...

i wasn't dressed in shorts and t-shirts (if that's what makes impression) i was in my office smart-casual attire...and i'm pretty sure i gave out the impression that i'm interested in actually getting something...

i spent about 20mins or so, just standing at one spot...comparing the range of tv's they had on display...no one bothered to approach me...then i went to look at the AVRs at another section...still nada...i went to the rooms...nada...i went back to the tv area...this time one guy was standing in front of me..playing on his phone doh.gif when i go closer to him to read a paper ad they got on the wall...he moved away..

all these while...a good 4 maybe 5 sales person were around...none of them had anything useful to do...and there's no one else in the shop except for me...instead of doing their part and do what a sales person should do...they just sit around looking at each other..they should be on commission basis right? cud it be they hav too much sales already so they're not bothered?i cud be a potential buyer...how come that don't come in their mind?

so, next up, i'm going to check out the Kepong branch since its highly recommended by fellow LYN forumer...if price is good..service is tip-top...surely will buy from them...but for the lowyat branch...unless they're having a closing down sales 60% off everything...then its not worth getting anything from them...no point letting them earn something they totally don't deserved.

i was at a number of places this past few days...Legend in SS2, harvey norman, CMY, Tong Lee, Hiway Laser...and none of them have service like that...all the place i've been too..i was approached almost immediately...even the guy in Hiway laser, although he was having chat with a friend, he was good enough to get up and chat with me...the sales girl in harvey norman actually followed me around and explained to me everything i stopped by to check out...good sales person...will definitely consider buying from them if price is not too high...they're having sales beginning this saturday 29-Nov-08.

happy shopping u guys, and always practice u rights as consumer. support only shops with good service.

I bought a few things from Desa Kepong, very satisfied with their service, except for one time. This guy treated me like I know nothing about HT, bluffing about HD audio, etc, I almost laugh. And when I ask for price, he just point to the price tag. I've been there a few times before, but they always quote me lower than the price tag.

And yes, the LYP branch sometimes more expensive.

I don't think I'll buy any LCD TV from them. I still prefer to buy from a Panashop (surely Panasonic lah) very nearby my home and always the products are new, SEALED and delivered to my doorstep as promised after mutual agreed conditions!.. Price?.. as competitive as any other and I won't complain to save few bucks wasting my time and petrol far off KL. Heh!..been buying so many Pana products this year.

i've been to a few shops, and i found Legend in SS2 gives the best price..when i bot my 32" aqous the last time around...they gave me a quote, best price and ask me to x-reference with others...and needless to say, their price is the lowest..service oso quite good...

but i oso find Desa HT's price very low...can check with them if u want...

Harvey Norman, altho their shown list price is high, still can nego..they offer me RM6999 for a model which has list price of RM8499...not bad really...btw, they having sales beginning this Saturday 29-Nov-08.

Same experience as mine.... Felt like i was transparent... I was looking at the guy as if my impression was wanting to ask question... they still dont respond until i ask them... then they talk lansi and non stop like for sure want to close sales once they open their mouth..... sigh... duno whether this is their culture in their showroom... I think i mentioned in my strating post also, this your man (the sales guy) was showing his nuckle to one foreign buyer.... OMG!!!!! doh.gif

The truth about Desa HT...

after a few visiting to this shop I like to give my opinion.. there a pro and kontra..read it.

- The pricing at Desa HT is consider appropriate and reasonable since they're buying items in bulk from importer. So the price is not to be bound by local distributor.

- I already made a purchase of unit JBL Sub Woofer, yes nice salesman to entertain me.

- Beware there's a few bad and lazy salesman in this shop, sometime they underestimate your knowledge capability by kelentong you.

- The display price is for cash buyer only, if you intend to used credit card they will charge another 3%. This is a hidden cost which buyer dont realize. It normal to charge 3% but it never happen at Carrefour where they will charge you at display price with a proper discount. what you see is what you pay. That why I bought my LCD at carefour. Have to careful at Desa HT.

- Not all items display at Desa HT consider cheap. Do comparing and search for a good price.

- They always do sales and promotions but some items is display item, ayam brand and old model. Please double check.

- Decide what you want to buy. Brand, specification, requirement and your expected price before visiting such shop unless for window shopping. Never let the salesman to control your mind, the choice is yours.


be a wise shopper... thumbup.gif

Hi all,

I bought LCD TV (full Hd) from them last month. If you really wanna buy ..you can nego and get the best price.
I bought mine from them after 3-4 days survey... There are cheaper about RM80- RM100 from other shops.
I got brand new and sealed. nod.gif

i went over to Kepong branch today. I gotta say, the sales guy that entertain me very good lahhhh...very patient. I had my 2 kids and wife together. I can understand the explination the guy was giving, but woman being woman, always repeating the same question. So the sales guy is very patient. We haggle the price really low. I finally decided on 42PFL7409 + HT-3569 and got a price where Harvey Norman is selling the same model TV only. I was there a good 2 hours i guess. Testing HT's and asking him the difference between models.

Thumbs up for Kepong branch.

actually i had wanted to go to DH in kepong to buy a new LCD tv. but i decided to try the lowyat branch despite the unfavourable views about that branch. and it's nearer from my house.

i guess i was lucky that a young salesman immediately approached me when i stepped into the shop at lowyat. he entertained me quite well showing me all the sony lcd tvs on display. i decided on one model and i told him to give me the bestest price for that model and i didnt want to spend time to haggle. i also told him if i did not get a good price i would go to the kepong branch. and i got the price i wanted! thumbup.gif

the sony lcd tv was delivered to my house right on time. now we are watching world cup football in HD.......really syiok. wink.gif

I had a not so nice time with lowyat Desa Home.

I called a day before to check for availability for their Yamaha 467, the chap was friendly enough and gave me a great price. So I confirmed a unit and told him I would be going the next day lunch time.

Upon arriving there during lunch break, the guy I contacted was on leave. So fine, the guy attending to me quoted me a higher price, about RM50 more. I can talk him down I thought but he became irritated with just one sentence. "I called yesterday and Mr. xxxx quoted me RMx,xxx ( less RM50).

He said with an irritated face to ask me to wait for Mr xxxxx return from leave and walked away and ask another guy to attend to me. I asked the other guy what is wrong with that guy. He said something like he is in a bad mood.

So asked me what would I like to know. I ask him what is the price of this unit. He went to talk to his calculator and came back with a price RM430 more on top of what the ass asked for. I told him, that guy who just walked off quoted me RM430 cheaper !!!

He kinda loudly asked the other guy, he confirmed. I looked at both of them and they looked at me. I walked off and went for the hong kong restaurant for lunch.

Something is wrong with those salesman in Desa Home lowyat.

Desa Home Theater in Kepong has very good service. I went there yesterday. The sales man was so good. I lepak there bout 2hours just to listen Pioneer HTP-820SW and YAMAHA 467.

Finally i choose YAMAHA even he keep on pushing me to Pioneer.But 1 thing i dont really like is He say " THE PRICE THAT I GAVE IS FOR TODAY , THE NEXT TIME YOU COME I CANNOT GIVE U THE SAME PRICE"

But, since the Audio System there is cheaper.I pay deposit on the spot and choose YAMAHA.

I bargain 99 with them and i said i will come and take the stock my own self. But 1 thing i need to ask u guys. WILL THEY OPEN MY YAMAHA BOX to take out something = =!!!

I had the same terribly bad experience in Desa HT Lowyat when I was there two days ago. Even if the price is cheaper but with those kind of arrogant attitude really they don't deserve any customer. Going to find out Desa HT Kepong in these two days time hopefully I'm lucky enough to get the good service you guys mentioned.

What the hell. If i just read this thread earlier, I wouldn't be there yesterday (LYP DH). The moment i walk in, there's 2 salesman there standing talking to each other, and they didn't bother to serve me at all. So i just go in walk around, and i spoted a unit of HT, so i called the salesman by giving hand signal. NOW, guess what!! That fella look at me, stare a while and if u see his eye, u gonna give him a real punch. Side view and jeling to look other place, not even bother to serve me, like i've got no money to purchase at all!! Really "JB"!! He stil can continue talking, and i just walked out, everything less than 10 minutes. If i stay longer, i dunno what'll happen with my bad temperant.

Its their lose our gain! We as consumer don't deserve to spend our money for such poor services. Do not know about DH Kepong, got no confidence in DH at all anymore. Don't think their after sales service would be good either, imagine if u got issue with ur unit and need for warranty claim, sure a lot extra hassles for u. Its a NO-NO-NO-NO for Desa Home!!

Personally i think they aren't on commission basis, just buta take monthly salary, so they dun bother to serve customer coz in the end they also wont get extra $$, and even if they do nth just standing there, they'll still get their monthly $$. Really pissed !!

Yup, the main diff between LCD & what is now known as LEDs is juz the backlighting mode....CCFL Vs LED!
The display panels for both are still LCDs!!
Backlighting by LEDs juz result in brighter colours....and a slimmer TV overall.... tongue.gif

dude... you dont carry the TV around la... but if you budget for LED then better go for LED lor... if not LCD also ok geh... if compare, plasma is even cheaper... but depends on the size ler...

each category have its pros and cons also.. depends on your preference....

to be frank, when i got my 46" samsung LCD 2 yrs+ back, i never even consider changing to LED, because to me it is still the same is it can perform as i wanted.. so good enough lo.. no need to waste money....

32" LCD is still very the ringan...one person can easily carry...but make sure you put some sort of padding first, esp the screen

i've moved a 40" LCD from house to apartment before...still manageable...but for this size better 2 ppl


another thing...for 32"...lcd led full hd, hd ready not much difference coz of the size...you can see more difference one u go 40" and bbove

just my opinion...since i've owned all those sizes already
