LG Monitors in SL?
« on: October 24, 2019, 12:27:28 pm »
Is there a place to buy LG monitors in SL? An authorized vendor or sort?
Can we pre order a specific model?

Did you try calling Abans?

My experience has been that it's very difficult, if not impossible, to get any specific models which were not made for South Asian market. Been trying to get a curved VA 1080p 144 Hz FreeSync AOC monitor and I contacted AOC China and Taiwan directly; they are willing to offer a unit at FOB 900 CNY (Rs 23,250). But our local importer is saying their MOQ is 50 units and not willing to include 1-2 units in their usual shipment from AOC warehouses as I'd requested. Our guys bring mediocre units down where it's possible to keep the biggest margin obviously, so they don't have any decently priced good models.

Even after adding into FOB the I + F + local taxes, the final cost for that model should be less than Rs 33,000. I'm wondering if our importers, distributors, dealers, vendors end to end keep almost 25% profit down the line by the time it gets to us retail consumers.

So I wanna buy this monitor
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YGZL8XF/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

I don't mind getting through amazon if not for the insane price for shipping+tax. It's more than what the monitor's worth.
Don't think Abans sell any monitors. Didn't see any in buyabans site
Anyone know a method I can buy this. I don't mind paying like $100-150 for shipping+tax if the vendor has good customer support. I know Amazon is decent but the tax+shipping for monitors on amazon is insane

Shipping will be expensive since the boxed volume is large and that means you'll get billed for 'dimensional weight' or something similar used by freight companies. Best bet is to check with a couple of local companies if they could get hold of that or a similar 1440p 144 Hz FreeSync monitor down from their suppliers in Asia. Monitors, PSUs, magnetic hard drives and motherboards are some of the harder things to bring down. HDDs of course you can at least ask someone flying down to bring it, but monitors will take a lot of their luggage space. Just one person I know did it and got a curved ultrawide from Amazon since we didn't have any such models in the country, he still insisted giving his uncle like 10K or so for the trouble. No tax.

On tax, standard PC monitors are taxed higher than models with TV tuners. Again, getting through an importer helps with that somewhat since they'll get better CIF for which to be taxed on.

all of that I know. There's only 2, 1440p 144hz ips panels available in SL. One is the VG27AQ @RLT & the other Nitrop 271up @EGS. The nitro has a ton of issues & the TUF isn't bad but has some performance issues at lower FPS.
Right now the LG GL850 & This are one of the best ones available. I don't know why anyone doesn't even consider bringing LG monitors to lk. They'll sell like hot cakes imo. I'm probably bringing this down through Newegg or got Amazon>USA>LK through relative route.
I know of one guy who bought an ultrawide through B&H & for tax he paid liike 7k so it's not a concern.
Amazon taxes+shipping for monitors,casings etc is absurd

No dude, I was not talking about getting a local monitor but talking to a direct importer to see if they'd considering including one good quality monitor of your choice along with the other crap they bring down 😉 Most economical way, and what I'm trying with Spectra for AOC C24G1 even though I recently got the HP 24f.

GL850 is superb as I've seen in many reviews, haven't really come across the model you mentioned. As for why they don't bring down the better models of many brands, probably low demand here and lower margins because of that, since they won't be able to really negotiate / low-ball the manufacturer with a small order quantity.

Selling like hot cakes, not so sure, because very few people actually spend close to 100K on a monitor. Monthly salary of most people is less than half of that here, whereas $500 which the GL850 costs is less than half the monthly salary of where we try to get these stuff from.

7K tax is actually reasonable, how much was shipping?

Standard shipping through DHL would be like 60-100 bucks
The GL850 is a teeny bit expensive imo. GL83A is the perfect sweetspot with that pricing because it's basically the same monitor with some features deducted

I linked kapruka the amazon link but they say they can't bring down the item. Who are other direct importers?
If you bring down 10 GL83As I'm pretty sure they will be sold out soon. Not many want to spend that much in SL sure but there are at least 1% of pop

Yeah, it's a difference of $120 between the two models which kind of makes up for shipping and tax, so I'd assume GL83A would still cost atleast 95K before seller margins?
Wonder why kapruka says it's not possible, was it system generated or some person at the company said so while giving a reason?

How about people who bring down PC parts? I'll make a few calls tomorrow and update here.

Find 9 more people to buy on pre-order and let's make it happen ;)

I'm getting a LG 34GK950F from Amazon and shipping it through myus. I'll share my experience when it gets here.  At the moment it's on its way from Amazon to myus.

I'm approximating about $130 for shipping 12Kg, Excluding taxes. I can help you out if you need to get one down.

Edit
Kapruka doesn't bring down monitors or TVs. It's their policy. There are services such as myus and aramax shopnship which only charge for weight regardless of volume.

Haha! I'm getting one the same way but through planet express. Got a really good BF deal on the exact monitor I was looking for.
Will update when it gets here.

If you want to check the tax amount
https://customsdutyfree.com/duty-calculator/#

For mine it comes down to something like $75, but a guy I know ordered an ultrawide through B&H & he only got taxed for 7k. So hoping the customs people would be kind enough.
Shipping for the monitor for me is around $105 via Fedex Economy but I'm using consolidated shipping for a couple of items I'm ordering, so still no clue how much for the entire package.

p.s - I guess the tax would be lowered after januarty since VAT is lowered from 15% to 8%or 7%

Computer monitors are exempt from VAT. The only difference is the removal of NBT which is effective from 1st of December.

Make sure the shipping service mentions the HS code correctly. It should be 8528.52.00

Here is the tarrif doc published in customs. Last updated 15/3/2019

So if NBT is removed & VAT is exempt what are the taxes applicable for Monitors? PAL tax of 7.5%?
