    • Manong Driver says:

      LOL, anong akala mo? Local distributor sila ng samsung?

    • Genesis says:

      ^ LOL. may SMH pang nalalaman ha.. haha! (>_<)

    • Mang Tomas says:

      Manong Driver, paki paliwang nga lang kung bakit local official warranty ang offered ng CMK kung gray market seller sila? Eh diba pag sinabing gray market eh imported original goods kaso hindi local warranty kaya service warranty lang offered ng gray market satin tulad ng widget city at kimstore?

    putang inang yaya na yan!
    inggit ka lang sa yugatech!
    sarap basagin sa face mo yang samsung grand!
    ang dami mo nalalaman!

    At ito pa. Ayon sa FAQs sa CMK:
    “Can we go straight to the service center to claim the warranty?
    —Answer: Yes, present the receipt we gave you upon purchase to claim warranty”
    Eh diba resibo lang ng official distributors ang tinatanggap ng service centers? So di ko makuha kung bakit considered as gray market ang CMK?

    Kapal ng mukha ng Samsung magbenta ng ganito kamahal. LOL

    Kapal ng mukha ng Samsung magbenta ng ganito kamahal. Sold in India via samsung india official e-store at 15200 indian rupee or roughly php11k. Kahit na mas mura ang cmk, overpriced pa rin ito.

    fyi, cmk is not considered a gray market seller as they provide official manufacturer’s warranty ng mga binebenta nilang units.. yung sponsor nyong kimstore at widget city ang notorious na gray market sellers na mababa nga magpresyo kasi walang official warranty, talo naman sa aftersales..

    Bobo kasi yung hindi alam ibig sabihin ng gray market tulad ni Manong Driver at si Genesis. Si R1 isa pa yan na tanga na sumabat pa… Magbasa kasi kayu mga bwisit kayu… Eto Yugatech link oh, basahin niyu leche.

    Official reseller ang CMK at hindi part ng gray market kaya yung mga warranty eh inaacknowledge ng distro. Yan, para matuto kayo mga leche!

    “As such, to protect the business of the distributor and dealers, they will only receive items you actually bought from them. These are the units which are eligible for local warranty. Otherwise, they might also accept grey units but you’ll have to pay for the service since it’s not covered by warranty….

    * This is the reason why gray market units or parallel imports are way cheaper than the mall prices of the devices — the prices do not account for replacement warranty and they did not invest in infrastructure for repairs and services. The only time gray market units are more expensive that the SRP is because of high demand and low supply of the units.”

    Si Yuga nagsulat ng article na yan. Writer of this article, Carl Lamiel, at yung ibang nagmamarunong diyan sana basahin niyu to nang matuto kayu.
