Asian countries are famous the world over for creating and manufacturing great, and often cheap, electrical goods and electronics. Countries such as Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and China have been making gadgets, TVs, phones, music players and much more for decades now.
It is also a given that many of their shops are cheaper than their western counterparts and many people buy cameras and electronics when they visit them on holiday or business. But, you can also buy from some of these over the internet, as many Asian shops offer international shipping. Our top pick is DX.com or DealExtreme from Hong Kong and have a huge range of products.
Our top pick for Asian based electronics shops is the Hong Kong store Deal Extreme, website dx.com. Why? Because sell a large range of consumer elecronics, computers and other items, they have a US warehouse and international shipping. They also have a good approval rating.

If you can speak Japanese, or you can use Google Translate, you might be able to shop at Amazon Japan. They offer international shipping, and some of the prices we looked at were cheaper than the same products at Amazon.co.uk. Of course there will be shipping and other fees. But this is one place that is worth a look for something different to what you might find at home. If you are looking further afield then Amazon Global might be for you instead.

An electronics store to avoid?
One that has consistently had bad reviews is TinyDeal.com. Yet another Chinese store offering international shipping, but based on the reviews we have had, I would not recommend. Feel free to try it, I am sure at some point they will have to improve and get their act together.
It has since been announced that TinyDeal has closed it website and is operating no more.
