proudly introducing an extensive page listing all major players in South Korea engaging in Electronics and Computer fields . I cannot sufficiently accentuate the importance of product support when buying an electronic product, for many things can go wrong especially if it has moving parts (like DVD-players, Vacuum Cleaner and Washing Machines) or has an LCD panel (like digital cameras, camcorders and monitor & TV).

however if you bought your machine in one of the places listed below chances are : you are on your own

  1. manufacturer NOT listed here
  2. bought from outside South Korea not in a Duty-Free Shop

although Global companies would ideally seem to have the same reputable service around-the-World : no, it all is relative (as Einstein might have pointed-out) for like many continents around, Korean vendors thrive in a very different consumer service practice than the States and Japan – where consumer and customer, respectively is King – mostly because they can still get away with an attitude taking advantage of national pride as tribal clans .

however in general the consensus are :

  • Korean conglomerates such as SamSung and LG offer a no-questions-asked on-the-spot exchange for those bought within a Month, or repair policy and is much lenient of effective deadlines of FREE Warranty support service,
  • foreign brands that have merged into Korean business societywith long-time distribution and maintenance of office printers and copy machines like HP and Canon, are down-to-earth (as in reasonable AND speaking the same language with the consumer) on repairs,
  • although widely distributed through major local department stores : Japanese, American and European Imports such as Panasonic, Pentax, Olympus, Sanyo, GE, Philips, Electrolux and AEG have set rules but much is in rapport with the visiting stores, because most are contracted local merchants,
  • popular Japanese electronics such as Fujitsu and Sony are famous for their notorious by-the-book policy plus charge-for-anything-more attitude set by their greedy Korean import agents, in spite of a much kinder attitude towards their own consumer while in Japan (add American Apple to this from latter 2009)
