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.
