Computer parts in Pattaya


Phoon

Recommended Posts

hey guys, coming to patts in 6 weeks, while there on my last day Id like to buy some seagate or any good brand name Harddrives such as SSD 2.5'.. only really after 5 or so drives.

 

Where would i find a trustworthy shop with a decent range??

 

Also, im thinking of posting a few things home to myself in Australia to avoid huge luggage+weight... Is the best way to post things back to my own country by going to the post office??

What are the post offices called in Patts?

 

Thanks for any help u can give me everybody.

Your best option will be Tucom on South Pattaya Raod (Pattaya Tai). It is on the right side as you head away from Second Road.

 

The post office is, funnily enough, called the post office and it can be found on Soi Post Office. It is also known as Soi 13/2.

 

I don't know if I would trust the Thai postal system with 5 hard drives. If you do make sure you send it registered. A safer option would be Fedex but that will cost you more. There have an office in Naklua.

look at this site to get a rough idea on prices. Smaller retaillers in tukcom will be cheaper, careful not to buy fake parts though. Pantip or the IT centre in ratchada BKK will be cheaper still though.

 

If you post home by Fedex make sure you repackage the items to avoid tax on new items in your own country

 

Cheers

As long as the goods are worth less than A$1000 this is not a problem to Australia.

Hi mate,

 

Firstly, you should be aware of the Tourist Refund Scheme offered on any invoice you have over $300 on items you take with you on the plane as long as you bought it within the last 30 days before departure. You will get back the 10% GST! I will be taking advantage of this to buy myself an iPad 16GB Wifi and some kickass Klipsch x10i earbuds from Techbuy.com.au (bargain for $241 after refund)

 

If you want to buy something small and light like SSD drives, taking that link posted above to invadeit, an A-Data 128GB is 12,600 baht or AU$426, whereas if you check the price engine staticice.com.au you can get it in Australia for $369 and that is before the tourist refund!

 

Finally again regarding SSD, please be aware that Intel is soon releasing their next-gen SSD devices which will be faster, cheaper, bigger and longer lifespan:

The best place is Fortune city in Bangkok (it’s on the subway line) , the stuff there is less likely to be counterfeit, you are taking a chance in Tukcom Pattaya or Pantip Plaza Bangkok.

 

In my experience all the stuff I bought in KL is still working well and the stuff I bought in Thailand is broken (includes ram, external and internal hard drives, memory sticks, power units for laptops).

For me the best internal hardrives for now is Samsung.

They are very light now so dont worry about the luggage weight.

Here's a couple of links to JIB and Hardware House - 2 of Tukcom's larger retailers. It might not be as cheap here as you think.

I have to say when I was looking at upgrading my desktop, all the parts seemed to be more expensive here than Ebay back in the UK.

Some things like external HDs seem to have come down, but they have back home too.

I want a quad core main board etc, but I'm waiting to see whether I'm going back or not.

 

Obviously the problem is partly import duty, but it's mainly the exchange date, so it depends where you come from.

You also have to bear in mind the likelihood of buying a faulty part and not realizing it until you return home.

Computer parts cheaper in thailand? I would not think so...maybe from hongkong or china where alot of it is produced. If you are from the US I would suggest www.newegg.com that's where I buy most of my computer parts, cheap and quick delivery.

I bought one of those testers for testing to see if there is live cables in the wall, bargain price it was, was never able to get the cap off of it though.

Found this old thread when looking for suggestions on where to buy a couple of computer components. Thought I'd give invadeIT a try for one accessory, an external HD (flagged as in stock).

 

Order process was fast and easy. Paid using direct bank transfer (Kasikorn). From checkout to email confirmation of payment received was less than 15 minutes. Email notification that order was packed came 13 minutes later, shipping notification with tracking number arrived three hours later. EMS shipping (cost B97) delivered package from Hua Hin to Pattaya in one day.

 

I did have a look around Tukcom, but didn't see the specific model HD I was looking for so can't comment on if the price I paid was a deal or not. But considering my time is worth something, wasting time poking around Tukcom probably would negate any small price savings I might realize compared to ordering online.

 

Thanks for the invadeIT recommendation, will be using them again.

I have upgraded my computer a few times using JIB Computers in Tukcom. Prices compare with other places and they put them in for free.

But as empty experiences go, it is one of the best.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6
