Agree with Jean Pierre. Unless U want to buy fakes or China brand, then go ahead. Imported goods are expensive in China.

I bought Samsung Tab 7.7 which cost Hkd 3800 but in Szx it cost 4k Yuan.

The place you want to visit in Shenzhen all things electronic is Huaqiangbei - shenzhenshopper.com/18-huaqiangbei-electroni…

The other comments are somewhat right, for imported brand name items like Dell, Sony, Apple etc. are all better purchased in HK. For generic items, or Made in China gadgets then Huaqiangbei is the place. For laptops see SEG market and for tablets see SED market.

Curious they have copies of Samsung and apple tabloid? Look exactly the same or different design or brand? How much are these copies selling?

Copies of Apple products will look similar to the real one, will have the Apple logo but they do not even operate with the Apple OS.

Huaqianbei Lu is the place for all computer electronics. Be aware that China has a high luxury goods tax so any genuine products will cost a lot more than in tax-free HK. If it seems cheap it is a fake. If you are happy to buy Chinese brands for small items such as USB sticks then you'll be happy.
