Sony LCDs in Kuwait

I had another meeting in Shuweikh and I was close by to Sun City so I decided to pass by Sony Electronics. I prefer going their because their isn’t much traffic in that area and I was two minutes away. I saw that they had the new 52 inch Sony LCD which has been out for 8 months in Kuwait.


Sony KDL-52XBR2 52″ Bravia XBR 1080p LCD HDTV

Price: 2339 KD

US Retail Price in KD: 1460 KD


Sony KDL-46XBR2 46″ Bravia XBR 1080p LCD HDTV

Price: 1590 KD

US Retail Price in KD: 963 KD

I really think that the 52″ Screen is amazing but the price difference is unwarranted, when I confronted them about it they said its priced by the “mother company” and the Kuwait Agency can’t change the prices. I thought that it was great that they were lying from the start, and the funny part is that I knew more about the product then they did. I said it would be cheaper if I went to Dubai and picked it up and shipped it to Kuwait, and another salesman jumped in and said there would be no warranty, and I mentioned that I’m buying Sony not Wansa. I’m just getting very frustrated with being blantantly ripped off!
