    DahakIs there any difference between そのとき and Verb + ときに? "At the time" is just short for "At the time when." 
    dcyes, they seem to be.

    at the time when (verb)
    at that time...


    at the time when i bought it, i thot it was expensive
    at that time it was expensive
    At that time, I thought it was expensive.

    Basically use そのとき when you don't link the time (とき) to an action (verb).

    dcseems like it. その時 is a standalone. 
    当時 = at the designated time (more formal)
