Ridiculous

Posted by rom on November 26, 2005

Sony is having a Christmas Treasures 2005 promo where I saw the Bravia MFM-HT75W 17″ LCD TV. It really is interesting since I am now looking for an external monitor and this will be a perfect complement to my powerbook.

Notice the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) feature? It allows you to have your computer displayed full-screen whilst watching TV on the smaller window or you can do it the other way around. Cool, right?

Checking the price, it is PHP 59,990, which is approximately USD1,000 at PHP60:USD1. Now isn’t this ridiculous? Yes, the cost in the US is around USD600 only! Granted that it is imported and comes with taxes – it should not be that expensive! Let’s say that it is 20% more than the US price, then it should only be USD720 – a far cry from the USD1,000 price point!! No way am I getting conned in getting it locally! Sony, you should be ashamed of yourselves!!!! This is plain and simple high-way robbery!
