Electronics and Photography Shops

  • The Los Gigantes area can provide great bargains on all sorts of products.  While there, I compared prices and service in a number of shops selling electronic equipment, cameras and binoculars.  While the shops in Los Gigantes itself provided reasonable value and service, I did find one shop about which I should warn the unwary - Foto Sarah across from playa de la arena beach.  The sales pitch is hard, and the owner openly lies about product features and warranties.  He is vastly overpriced and will not accept any returns whatsoever.  Please do not buy anything from this shop!  Be warned.

    It would be useful to see other consumer opinions on these forums, particularly regarding unscrupulous traders who exist only to prey on innocent tourists.

  • We bought a cd player from the shop in the arcade near the post office. It didnt work and we took it back, they would not replace it or give any refund. Not a good deal at all!!!

  • A word of advice to everyone! Only buy known brands like sony, olimpus, canon, nikon, panasonic, fuji, samsung, Pioneer, kenwood Etc.. The cheap stuff never works properly.

    You get what you pay for. ;)

  • I don't think that you always get what you think you are getting when you go for the brand names either.
    Edward's Latin phrase and Daisy's translation to be at thye forefront of your mind.
    Alternatively a well known phrase including the word 'bargepole'.
    It something seems too good to be true then it probably isn't.
