Buying computer in the province

43 posts in this topic

I ordered a Carrier inverter air conditioning unit a few weeks ago from Lazada using their COD method. Their website claimed delivery in 2-4 days (to Cebu) and they charged me just over 2,000p for shipping. Turned out they sent the damned thing via ferry and it took 2 weeks to deliver (with some parts broken). I used epoxy putty to repair the broken parts and just avoided trying to deal with Lazada customer service at all.

Those AC units are awesome though. I got the 1.5 Silver series because they didn't have the gold series locally and its really quiet, cant even hear it, and the electric bill with the ac set to 25c 24/7 is about 2500 pesos a month.

 

As for Lazada, now you guys have me wondering if I can have stuff delivered here instead of driving 3 hours to the city everytime I want to shop for something.

what ever lazada is selling  

it may take some days, sometimes more than a week

if item contains batteries of any form, it can not be shipped by air

OR, items containing compressed gases, such as an AC unit!

Good timing for this information. Question is Idea pad the same as Laptop?

 

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 110. It is an underpowered laptop. Good for surfing and some of the things I need a laptop for. It also has a CD/DVD included primary reason for owning it.

There are sellers of computer hardware etc in Ormoc city, closeby, An advantage to buying from a retailer whose main business is computers is the repair and advice if needed. I've bought a charity of computer related items from local retailers, in western leyte, and whenever I had a question or some warranty issue, I got assistance.

I use Lazada quite often rather than going to Cebu City. I set up a paypal.ph account and tied a US charge card to it with no problems. I have never tried COD and have been impressed with their customer service.

I actually pressed the COD button by mistake when I bought a UPS. But all was fine, prompt delivery as usual.

      Citizens of 40 countries traveling to Vietnam now have a simplified process for obtaining travel visas directly from the Vietnam government. Vietnam recently introduced an e-Visa (electronic visa) application system for citizens of 40 countries. Vietnam e-Visas will allow citizens of these 40 countries to visit Vietnam for up to 30 days. The 40 countries included in the Vietnam e-Visa program are Armenia, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brunei, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Mongolia, Myanmar, Norway, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Timor Leste, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela. This new two-year, e-Visa pilot program will be in addition to the current Vietnam travel visa processes in place. Holders of the new Vietnam e-Visas will be allowed to arrive into Vietnam through any of the eight international airports including Noi Bai - Hanoi City, Tan Son Nhat - Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang - Da Nang City, Cam Ranh - Nha Trang City, Cat Bi - Hai Phong City, Can Tho - Can Tho City, Lien Khuong – Da Lat City and Phu Quoc - Phu Quoc Island or through any of the 13 international land border crossings. Vietnam e-Visas will cost you a flat fee of $25 USD for a 30-day, SINGLE-ENTRY visa. Your 30 days will start when you arrive into Vietnam, not when your e-Visa is approved. This visa will only be valid for a single entry into Vietnam for up to 30 days, meaning you can’t fly into Vietnam, stay for a few days, travel to Cambodia and then return to Vietnam for your flight back to your country. You can only enter Vietnam once. If you need a multiple-entry visa or want to stay in Vietnam for longer than 30 days, you can apply at www.visavietnam.ph . It is fast, cheap, easy and reliable. Vietnam e-Visa application process You will need a scanned copy of your valid passport details page and a scanned passport photo. According to the website instructions, the passport photo must be “straight looking and without glasses.” I’m assuming this means looking forward at the camera and without a smile (and nothing to do with your sexual orientation). You can apply online for a Vietnam e-Visa through this website: https://evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/web/guest/trang-chu-ttdt. Please follow the steps below: 1.    Click on “For Foreigners.” 2.    Upload your passport photo and a copy of your passport details page. These are two separate uploads. You can’t upload your passport details page twice. 3.    Enter in all the required information. 4.    Pay your $25 USD fee and submit your application. Your fee is non-refundable even if your application is later denied. 5.    Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a “registration code.” Keep this code. 6.    At the time of this posting, the e-Visa turnaround time is approximately 3 business days. After the processing time, return back to the website and click on “Search” in the top menu bar. 7.    Enter in your registration code to search for your application to see if it was approved. 8.    If approved, you can print out your Vietnam e-Visa as proof for travel. I know this sounds a little complicated but trust me, this Vietnam e-Visa process is much simpler than the uncertainty and hoops we used to jump through. We no longer have to deal with third-party companies for visa approval letters or mail in our passports to the Vietnam consulate offices. Overall, this is a win-win for citizens of 40 countries. Travelers and it’s a step in the right direction. I’m hoping that multiple-entry visas and longer term visas will be added to this system if it proves to be successful. Disclaimer: Please understand this is a pilot program so there might be some glitches along the way. I have not personally applied for a Vietnam e-Visa through this process so I can’t test out how reliable it is. If any of our readers has any feedback or real life experiences with obtaining a Vietnam e-Visa, please share them with us in the comments section below. Thanks for reading! PhilipJ

      Took a trip down to Ho Tong Hardware to search for the NPT tap and dies that I needed. Turned out that they didn't have any in stock, but I'm not sure that the surly lady that helped me actually understood what I was looking for. A very different experience from Belmont Industrial!
