Where? I think i will just go to a HDB shop downstairs to negotiate for a good price though they don't carry stock.
That is the usual practice but it is still better to compare prices. usually, Daikin is the most expensive, followed by Mitsubishi and Panasonic. If you can afford, go for Daikin.

hello all GXFC,

my 9 years old inverter Toshiba RAS-M10YKCV just gave way, red flashing lights
on FAN-ONLY in all 3 indoor units.

Called GC(purchased from them), sent in techs; said PCB spoiled..
repair will be very $$$.

now am reading thru this long threads, but hello lots of good information....

will be checking out coolservice,, seen some good reviews, also will
be narrowing to Daikin, Panasonic or Toshiba.

cheers!

It seems like it is awlays a choice between daikin, mitsubishi and panansonic. And daikin though expensive seems to have many fans.
dun agree that penasounik is on par with daikin or mitsubishi....

the choice is only between daikin or mitsubishi ONLY...

both are good.
but in terms of appearance, daikin looks better. i like the matt feel of the surface...

Forget about Toshiba. It is a tie between Daikin and Mitsubishi but I will buy Daikin because i can't stand jack Neo.

there are also some dealers for Daikin which will be a bit more flexible on pricing. Why don't you call Daikin at their office in Singapore to check?

I was told by a contractor friend whom I met furing Chinese New Year that Daikin is the recommended choice.

Get Daikin. I was deciding between Daikin and Panasonic but bought Panasonic instead because it was cheaper by a hundred dollars or more but it wasn't that cold and powerful.

One reason that i can think of why Courts duh sell Daikin.
Daikin equipment price is expensive compared to others.
Check out Courts promo, always promo for Samsung/LG/Panasonic.
