View Full Version : HV20 and HV10 price in Malaysia?
2007 September 29th, 14:36
Next weekends I am going to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am planning to buy HV10 or HV20 there, but I did not find on the Internet how much it can cost in Malaysia.
Maybe somebody knows the price of HV10 or HV20 in Kuala Lumpur?
Thanks a lot!!!

I'm actually from Malaysia - and I recently bought my PAL HV20 in KL over summer.
I managed to haggle mine for a ringgit equivalent of USD900. That was when the HV20 was just released in Malaysia though, so I'm sure you can get it for even less now - but you have to be prepared to haggle. The shopkeeper was asking me for RM3800 initially (approx usd1100) because they were one of the first stores to get it, but I persisted.
Make "What's the best price you can give me?" a part of your vocabulary. It's a kind of unwritten code-word for "I want this CHEAP, NOW". :D
I wouldn't count on finding a HV10 there though. Malaysia is one of the best if not the best location in South-East Asia for acquiring state-of-the-art, brand new tech, at ridiculously low prices, but one of the annoying things with video tech in Malaysia and the rest of SEA is that they're constantly cycling out "last year's tech" in favor of the latest and greatest on the Asian market.
Don't forget to enjoy the sights and the food while you're there. Especially the food. :hv20-smilie77:
Darn it I'm homesick now :(

Thank you for you answer!
Your message excited me because I didn't think that I can find HV20 at such an attractive price! I will stay in Malaysia only for 3 days so, could you tell me where you bought your camcorder or some shops with camcorderdes for reasoable prices?
Following your advice I will sertainly try Malaysian food! :hv20-smilie03:
Thanks a lot!

Which part of KL did u get it from? I had to call many stores b4 finding it in Sungei Wang and paid RM4200 for it. I'd been robbed!? :(

I can't remember if I got mine in Sungei Wang or Low Yat. It was probably Sungei Wang - but not sure. I'll try look for the reciept then I can tell you the shop name.
Actually, now that I think about it I was probably very lucky that time. The fact that you can't find the model shows its popularity. They're (shopkeepers) likely not to budge within a certain price-range once they know an item is popular.
Also, mind you, I didn't buy the camera by itself. I purchased quite a few other accessories and a digital still camera as well - so while I technically got a great price for the camera, I still fished out a lot of $$$ for the other stuff - which was probably a factor.

Darosk, did the camcorder come with international warranty? I am about to go to Malaysia and I'm on the market for HV20 (I'm from Australia).
