Bought one when they still had a shop at the back of megamall. But after that no more. Had no problem with my canon and still been using it. No recent experience with them.

we've bought almost all our gadgets kay kimstore at dbgadgets. kung kanino may stock dun kami. first item bought is ipod 1st gen at digicam. recently bought note3 and ipad mini2. so far ok naman. iphone lang ata ang hindi ko nabili sa kanila.

kung hindi ka maselan sa warranty then para sa akin their ok. minsan kasi more than 5k yung difference sa srp, pinagkaiba lang is warranty. pero kung after 1yr ok pa rin yung item then malaking tipid na yun para sa akin.

If magsearch ka sa TipidCP or Tipidpc bro, sure ako mas madami ka pang makikitang mura. Dati mura sa Kimstore, pero ngayon hindi na ako masyadong bilib sa presyo. The risk and the price difference is not worth it e. Kung gusto mo talaga makamura, mas madami pang mabibilihan na parang Kimstore. Wag lang sa Kimstore, sikat na din kasi, para ka na lang bumili sa mismong store talaga. IMO.

This is correct. They also recently opened a physical store, because there are news that the BIR is at their doorsteps. I mean, they keep on earning without paying anything to the government. Their prices aren't as cheap as before.

Anyway, if you're serious in buying at Kimstore, just be careful. The NBI recently got involved with them because of a scam. Someone pretended to be an employee of Kimstore and scammed a legitimate customer. The customer sent her deposit slip to the scammer, and the scammer pretended to be the customer and sent the deposit slip to Kimstore. 2 iPad Minis were gone. At first Kim didn't want to replace the missing iPad Minis, but due to the pressure of an online community she issued replacements. I have no idea if the perpetrator was caught, but almost everyone agrees that it was an inside job (apparently because the scammer was using Kimstores's real contact numbers).

Also, there's an issue with her delivery people. They ask for tips so they can buy stuff from Jollibee and whatnot.

^1+ dami sa tipidPC bro. May feedback system naman sila. I'm sure hindi ka magkakamali bumili dun. Putok na kasi pangalan ng Kimstore.

OK rin experience ko with Kimstore,
bought a panasonic TS3 underwater camera, nagka problem yung camera ko 2days after and kimstore replaced it the day after calling/texting them.

Pero mas sulit parin kung sa Mall bumili since yung ibang item, like smartphone, eh konti lang naman price difference.

Wow swerte mo sir kung ganun. Immediate replacement. Yung sa wife ko nagkaproblem the day na kinuha then inform them the following day na for replacement. Need daw ibalik sa kanila then icheck ng tech nila kung for replacement talaga which will take about 3-5 days upon receipt ng tech nila. Dito na nagsimula ang mga kalokohan ng Kimstore. Parang nagmamakaawa pa kaming palitan yung unit. No definite date kung kelan mapapalitan. This is considering na pasok sa 3-day replacement nila at hindi naman for repair ang unit. This is how they treat a loyal customer who even recommends their store to friends. Since then I vowed to never buy from them ever again. Kimstore does not deserve my hard-earned money.  >:(

Pero meron sila 3-day replacement. Sa iba 7-day but 3 ain't bad basta meron for those with factory defects. Yun nga lang di yata nila alam ibig sabihin ng replacement warranty nila.

Di pala sila sumusunod sa sarili nila policy
Dapat pala pag bibili ka, confirm mo yun warranty ng item via sms
Tapos screen shot, for proof pag nagkaproblema ewan ko kung di sila ma pressure nyan.  Eh kawawa pala mga taga probinsya nito kasi pagbili mo palang at delivery ubos na 3 days mo.

bought several items sa kanila on different occasions, thru bank to bank transactions. items were shipped. ok naman un mga nabili ko-orig. till now walang problema (XpZR, Samsung mega6.3 and samsung tab 3).  Recently ordered G3, try ko naman ang COD nila. still waiting for the item. D ko pa naexperience magpawarranty ng defective unit sa kanila, fingers-crossed, wag naman sana. :)

so meaning.. original benta nila.. ok lang as long as there is no defect.. pag may defect.. kahit may 3 days replacement warranty.. echapwera kana?

also heard from a friend na... hindi kumpleto stocks ng kimstore but lahat nilalagyan nila presyo para you inquire tapos... pag bibili kana.. they will try to sell you a similar unit nalang para di sayang daw customer..

pansin ko lang.. smaller companies.. hirap magpapalit.. kahit policy nilang replacement.. tagal kausap.. mahirap.. papalusutan ka talaga..
bought some cctv equipment sa qube... gusto remedyo.. meron sila 1 week policy.. sabi ko palit.. since wala pa 1 week.. nasasayang oras ko... pinadala ko sa tao namin yung item sakanila... to have it fixed... sayang oras... tapos.. bayad pa sa tao.. andun nagaantay... tapos sabi nila.. ayos naman daw etc etc.. yun pala pinasok na sa loob remedyo.. pag dating sakin... gumana sandali.. then pag reset.. sira uli... so ayun.. next day ako na mismo pumunta.. sayang oras.. still insisting na ayos... sabi ko.. wala kwenta 1 week policy niyo.. ayaw ko ng repair.. kasi regular price naman natin nabili, may policy naman.. and madami beses ko na nasubukan yung item under warranty pero di na reliable.. remedyo remedyo sila.. na tipong gusto ko nadin palitan ng bnew dahil wala nako tiwala...

kaibigan ko bumili ng ref sa sm appliance... umabot siya 2 weeks.. tapos nasira... ayun.. medyo nadismaya siya sa brand.. replacement is 1 week din.. but pumayag naman replacement.. and dahil nawalan ng tiwala barkada ko sa LG dahil 2 weeks+ sira... nagpa-palit nalang siya brand to samsung.. approve din..
