Electronic heaven in Shenzhen, China
« on: February 06, 2011, 09:44:32 pm »
I bump into this blog entry about an "electronic heaven" in Shenzhen, China called SEG Electronic Market that I would like to share with everyone...

I've been there before a few years ago ( that time I wasn't into electronic yet ) to accompanying a few friends looking for cheap mobile phones..

Really an amazing place!!!!

Well if this " interesting electronic place " uses money ... then its a business  , and belongs in an another forum category like    Buy & Sell

Stan001 I have been in similar markets in Beijing, you feel like a kid in a candy store, you want to buy everything you see ! Prices are really cheap. Even if you already have something you still want to buy similar stuff.

The one I go in Beijing is 5 stories with everything you can imagine, you name it, is there.

I go to Beijing very often and that is a official stop everytime I go there.

Good post.

In NYC, Canal Street was known for several blocks of electronic surplus and new parts stores, they are gone.  In Toronto, Canada, King/Queen street still have that today.  More common today in Chinatown are phone repair, unlockers, etc.,.

What we have left are isolated stores selling a lot of parts, but it varies by region.  Dave reviewed one of the last in CA, Apexs Electronics, is famous.  In Canada, A1 Electronics.
