ok naman sa kimstore esp noong konti pa lang customer nila pero lately sa dami ng kausap, akala ko ako lang ang kausap yun pala ang dami naming ka meetup sa mcdo. tapos nasabihan ko pa si ms kim dahil inefficient yung 2 tao nila kasi sablay sa coordination. pansin ko lately, tumaas na presyo nila dahil na rin siguro sa overhead.

you may check sa db gadgets, cmk cellphones, etc. for comparison...

I have bought 2 canon s90s and a Xperia a from kimstore. No issues whatsoever.

You may want to check hotgadgets in eton mall beside galleria. They have an online presence rin. My friend buys there and price is comparable if not cheaper than kimstore.

Try googling Philmug Kimstore experience.  ;)

Been buying from Kimstore since their Multiply days pa. But recent purchase proves that they don't deserve my hard-earned money and vowed to never buy from them ever again.  >:(

bought from kimstore before but I stopped na. It was way before when Kim Lato (the owner) was just starting out. I got Sony p990, Iphone 3GS, Nikon D60 etc. no issues since if may problema ok pa yung customer service. Now hindi na... the last item i got was an ipod at nagloloko. i sent it to them for warranty and took about 1 month to tell me na sira na and it was the user that caused for a chip to burn... brought the unit to mac store and no warranty was given since it was a gray market item. never again.
That awkward moment when I'm drunk and you're still ugly.

i always recommend kimstore to people who ask me where to buy gadgets/etc.. ive had a few transactions with them rin. had problems with one of the purchases, pero ako nalang nagpaayos kasi i cant rely on them for support rin naman.. overall ok naman sila with their prices.. (i dont know now kasi medyo matagal narin ako di bumibili)..

Plan on buying Galaxy Note 3 sa Kimstore.  Akala ko sila ang pinakamura.  Magkano kaya ang presyo ng Note 3 sa ibang store who offers online selling?

Mura pa rin sa kanila. It's just the service that is not okay.

For peace of mind, buy only from stores that offers parts and service warranty. Kung mura lang naman ang kukunin (10k below), Kimstore is still a viable option. Pero kung mas malaking pera na it is still better to buy from authorized dealers. Just my opinion of course.

bought 3 items on different occasions n with them. tab 3 for my daughter, mega 6.3 for wifey tsaka zr for myself. ok lahat ng gadget as of today.  nabili ko last year un mga items thru shipment sa LBC.  Malayo kc ang presyo compare dito sa province namin. as for the experience buying sa kanila, ok naman, dinaan lang sa tawag cellphone ang transaction. items were sealed upon receipt.  :)

actually as with other stores, hit and miss naman ang kimstore..  the last time a i got iphone5 from them for my gf, after a few months nagka problem ang power button... binalik ko sa kimstore pero they were charging someting like a board replacement for the unit, since sira daw whole board..  being a cellphone technician before, i know trabahong tamad yan.. sira isang pyesa palitan buong board.. or para narin nilang sinabing ipagawa mo nalang sa iba.. kasi di namin gagawin to unless magbayad ka ng malaki... i had that phone fixed sa hong kong.. sabi ng hk, iba iba daw ang pyesa sa loob ng iphone (although feeling ko ginugudtime rin ako), but bottom line naayos nila ang power button and damage was P1500.

yan talaga ang risk bumili sa non warrantied grey units.. actually the service warranty is a joke...  aayusin nila for free within 1 year pag nagka problema, pero sisingilin ka ng parts.. in my case i knew all along ayaw lang nila ayusin.. so sa iba ko nalang pinagawa...

yes, tama si waxx... ang pagbili sa grey market ay parang bumili ka abroad. though ther offer din naman parts & service warranty pero ang laki ng diff and if ganun baka mas ok pang sa official store na. 2 digicams namin galing sa kimstore and until now ok pa din though nung binili ko yun may kasama pang dasal na sana di masira kasi authentic naman. may mga customer lang talagang OC.

payo ko sa bibili, kilatisin nyong mabuti ang unit/s dahil paghiwalay nyo ng tao nila parang tapos na ang usapan.

Sa Samsung basta may NTC seal if no receipts provided un manufacturing date are basis nila for waranty.

Got 3 Ipads from them (Kimstore)....so far no issue...my DSLR was from DBGadgets...will never ever buy again from them. Bad transaction...walang isang salita sa meeting place..pinabalik pa ko...considering fully paid na ko..grr..well they could have much more customers pa sana from my peers but I cautioned them against DBgadgets..sayang cheap price pa naman sila..

ok naman kay kimstore pero tulad ng sinabi ni bro mykel, anything above 10k dun nalang sa may official warranty bumili :)

bought 3 digital cameras from kimstore (all under 5k), so far OK naman, yung isa nasira nalang ng anak ko ;D
