A lot of people need to buy electronic appliances and are always seeking places where they can get quality products. Apart from quality, people also seek to get products at cheap prices which they will able to afford.
There are a lot of electronics in the market including flat screen TVs, home theater systems, refrigerators and lots more coming in various brands, models and specifications. Brands available in the market include LG, Sharp, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and lots more.
When people are interested in buying an electronic product, there are certain decisions they need to make like the brand of product they want, will it be a brand new product or used product, how much they are willing to spend on a product and where they will buy their electronic product.
The decision of where to buy your electronic product is a very important one as it could be the difference between you purchasing a good quality product at an affordable price or buying a fake or substandard product which will lead to you wasting your money.
Buying electronic products in the market comes with a lot of challenges and disadvantages as you may not be 100% sure of what you are receiving.
There are people that advice others not to buy in the market which may not be possible for those who may not have enough money as the prices in markets are usually less and cheaper than those in stores and shopping malls.
Also there are people who may not have enough money to buy brand new products and will be hoping to get used products which are mostly available in the market than in stores or shopping malls.
Basically buying electronic products in the market comes with its problems and challenges which can be detrimental to you, they include the following:
- Some electronic products sold in the markets are not up to standard, some of them are of inferior quality which may not last for long and can easily get damaged.
- You need to be careful when buying popular brands especially when it is not from an accredited dealer. We have seen situations where people have bought major brands like LG, Sharp, Sony, Samsung, Panasonic and many others only to discover they are fakes or have different brand names when taken for repairs.
- When buying in the market, you may not be able to get a warranty for the product bought. What this means is that if you encounter any problem with your product like it getting spoilt or damaged, you will be responsible for repairing it. This is unlike buying from an accredited dealer who will take responsibility for your product getting damaged within the stipulated warranty period.
At the end of the day, if you still have to buy from the market you should try and inspect properly what you need to buy before paying for it.
