Sri Lankan Online Shopping Sites Selling Computers and related stuff

Filed under: Uncategorized — yasi8h @ 9:59 am

There are only a few online shopping sites here in lanka that sells computer related stuff. and even within those sites only a very few are actively maintained. i am compiling a list of sites here, as i didn’t find a list anywhere else(i asked google). these consists of sites that actually let you buy online and the ones that only publishes a price list.

If you know any more sites please let me know(put a comment please).

Online Shopping Sites

http://www.memory.lk

As the name sugguest this one sells all things memory related. mostly(if not exclusively) everything they have is kingston.

http://www.laptop.lk/

Has a lot of stuff. looks like a well maintained site. but the web designing is… errr let’s just not talk about that. pricing seems ok.

http://www.slmega.com

This seems to be the only decent online shopping site over here. but then it too can improve a lot. i feel that their prices are a bit high, at least on some items. still have a huge list of products and they will virtually import anything from USA to SL. neat, but expensive.

http://winsoftsl.com

Don’t know much about these guys. they are located in unity, have been there for a while. the site looks ok. can use as a price list/ product catalog…etc.

http://www.abc.lk – this is down

Has a good set of products. this is a online shop front and it looks pretty ok. They has a lot of Apple products as well so if you are looking for something Apple don’t forget to look here.

http://www.techgsmsl.com

has a limited product range but the site seems to be updated and maintained.

http://www.barclays.lk/

ultra slow site. badly designed(oh well almost every site in this list is badly designed. basically they suck. but still its better than not having a site at all). have a good range of usual products. prices seems ok.

http://www.ibuy.lk

This is an online store run by Dialog. they do have some computer realted stuff for sale. Asian Computer Systems are offering the products. The range of products is pretty limited though.

http://www.computer.lk

have a decent range of products. prices seems to be a bit high… may be they weren’t updated in a while :)

http://www.epsi.lk/

If you want something Asus this would be a good place to look in. but most of their products are not in their web site’s product list. they don’t have a price list their either. but they do have a catalog of products. prices tend to be very high with epsi.

http://www.istore.lk

EPSI’s Apple wing. you can find iPods, iMacs…. with their local prices on this site. it’s usual for Apple products to be high priced :) but when you buy them off epsi its even more high priced. i don’t know may be they are keeping a  huge profit margin.

http://www.bhavik.com/techwarehouse

This is another new site on the block. well it’s domain name looks fishy to me… whatever the products mainly compose of Asus stuff(em… i thought EPSI was the Asus distributor for SL). prices are high… but this one has a decent web application running.

http://www.nunet.lk/

Has some good high end vga cards, memory and foxconn mother boards. you should check them out if you are out to buy something for your gaming rig.

http://www.eglobesl.com

A bit Gamer and Server side hardware supplier. expect the prices to  be higher.

http://www.sh-technologies.com/

This one looks more like web site! :) Have gaming accessories, laptops and laptop skins. Some sections are still under development. its not an online shop, just list the products with their prices.

http://www.salaent.com

Have a decent amount of Chinese/Taiwanese…etc brands. and obviously the prices are cheaper for these goods. these guys do Prolink stuff in SL. they aren’t a online shopping site but they do have a product listing on their (crappy) site.

http://www.digitalhouse.lk

Has a lot of Mercury products. and other stuff. Either this site is not updated as of date or their prices are too high.

http://www.metropolitan.lk

Have some computer related stuff like printers and scanners…etc. this is not an online store just a products listing.

http://www.futureworld.com.lk

All Apple here. looks fine. Just a products listing, no online store.

http://www.buyabans.com/phones_computers.php

yeah it’s Abans. they have a decent set of products, prices aren’t cheap. they do have some logitech gaming gear. worth a look if you are on the lookout for something.

www.lankanet.org

don’t have a lot of products but still worth looking in to. contain a price list no online store.

Junk Sellers

these sites are of companies that sell used computer/parts.

http://www.japansoft.tk/

www.microdevices.lk

http://www.usedcomputer.lk – Caution: You might vomit when you see this site. It has such a horrible look and feel.

Other

http://www.thesrilankantechguide.com

nice site! this site sort of integrates price lists from different sites together and try to provide us a with a unified set of products available in sri lanka. good effort. hope these guys can add more stores.

that’s it. there is a lot of space available for a decent site in this market segment. the ideal site would provide us customers with a wide range of products for decent prices. and also a decent web application that let us sort/search/filter/links to reviews and ratings from other sites…etc. they could do the distribution via some trasnport service, i don’t know. or else they can have a store front in colombo. let’s hope that one day we lankans will have something like newegg or atleast a decent auctioning site like ebay :)

  1. Thanks this is usefull, none of these mutts have managed to get their sites into google so nothing shows up if you search. And the prices they have listed on their sites are not upto date. You can always get stuff for a few hundred bucks cheaper at Unity. Often at the brick and mortar shops owned by the same mutts

    • true, most of these guys don’t really update their price lists. the thing with shopping at unity is that i suck in bargaining :(

    • Correct me if i am wrong but that site doesn’t seems like a “Sri Lankan Online Shopping Site Selling Computers”, its just a blog with all sorts of links and info….

      anyways good luck with your “blogging venture”.

  5. Thanks for your comment on my blog about buying stuff from E-bay. I find this particular post of yours still usefull more than a year after you first wrote it. Yep, none of these idiots have managed to get their sites into google yet!

    BTW, now that you are in SG. how about doing a comparision post of prices over there and over here.

    • Most of these guys doesn’t seems to invest much on their sites so i guess no SEO for them :).

      Good idea, will add it to my TODO list.
