jodub79 has indicated that this thread is about Malaysia

I'm travelling to Australia in Mid January, and i'm stopping in Kuala Lumper for 2 nights. Is it cheap to buy mini disc players or MP3 players in Malaysia, or would i be better off buying one before i start my travels?

Jo.

Yes Robin is right, electronic goods are cheaper in Msia (and Spore) than Europe.

Hi Robin.

Perhaps you could let us know which particular model and make that you're interested in. Someone may provide you with the price and where to buy it in Malaysia. Take note of whether it has international warranty coverage.

Hi Jo,
Usual caveats apply. Make sure you get a power supply/charger + plug suitable for use at home, plug instructions in English - these will not necessarily be in the box.
Also be careful you are not sold something you don't want or that will be obsolete or unsupported.
Basically, do your homework before you go and then search for that product at the best price and do not be persuaded otherwise.

Hi Jo,

Check out this price list from a retail computer store in Kuala Lumpur. ( http://www.compu-zone.com/ )

http://www.compu-zone.com/uploads/pricelist/pl091004.pdf
The MP3 players are on page 2. All prices are in Malaysian Ringgit.
(1 Euro = 4.7 Ringgit, £1 = 7 Ringgit, US$1 = 3.80 Ringgit)

FYI, all products of international brands sold in Malaysia come with instructions in English. As for plugs, we use the UK-style 3-pin, 230V AC.

Cheers,
Hien
