Was told the Casio camera was exclusive to the shop and it was to be offered at a massively discounted price, which after several price drops ended up at $400 (220) - this can be purchased in many other shops for approx' $200 (110).
We were told that this was not yet available in the Uk and when it would become available it would retail for around 600. It is already on sale in the Uk for 150 ($270).
I was also sold an HD memory card -this started at well over $100 but ended up being sold to me, because I was such a good customer, for the cost price of $60. This is available online for $7.
The total cost of the purchase was $585 (320) which, if you add the previous figures together do not add up. I can purchase the same items in the US for around $210 and in the Uk for 160 half the cost that I paid in JK computers.
I was also sold a wide angle lens for my other camera. As happened with another customer I was given an extensive demonstration and shown the price tag of $1500. I was also told that the lens had just won an award at the Tokyo electronics show. This was eventually sold to me at below cost price of $325 (inc tax). This can be bought on-line for around $60.
As per previous customers the price tag was removed from the box before being bagged and I had to return to the shop to get the receipt.
On reviewing the photos taken with the lens I think that even $60 is overpriced for what is in fact a below average product.
The total cost of my purchase was $910 (500), these items could have been purchased elsewhere for approx' $270 (150). I could even have purchase the same items in the Uk for approx' 190.
To add insult to injury the salesman shook my hand on the way out of the store I only wish I did not live so far away.
