If you are looking for a bargain and feeling lucky, you may also want to check out the entertainment and electronics market at Gorbushka. But make sure anything you buy is taken out of the box, plugged into a working outlet, and demonstrated to be in working condition before you buy. The same applies to DVDs – most honest sellers at Gorbushka have a TV and DVD player on site so that you can inspect your purchase to make sure the disc contains what the box promises before you buy.
