"Electronics stores: Big..." Eletronics Shops Tip by sellaturcica

Eletronics Shops, New York City: 20 reviews and 5 photos


Electronics stores: Big tourist traps. Never buy from the 5th Ave electronics stores! Basically if it's not a chain like the Wiz or Circuit City, you risk getting ripped off real bad.

For photo equipment: There are only two real stores in New York, Adorama and B&H. I prefer B&H on 9th and 34th street. DO NOT BUY CAMERA EQUIPMENT ANYWHERE ELSE. You seriously risk getting fleeced, even if you think you know what you are doing.

If you are into the high end, expensive film camera equipment, Ken Hansen and Tammarkin are straight arrows as well.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
