Expensive and crowded

Tons of neat gadgets but no deals. You could buy the same things for cheaper online and the building was caroused and noisy and hard to navigate through.

There has been a lot of bad press about this place due to a lot of unethical and dishonest shops located mainly at level 1 and level 2. I feel that we should not penalise the whole building because of some rotten apples. The consumers now are much more careful when they make their purchase and will do their due... More

It's a Multi-level building fill of electronics! From camera and accessories to phones, TV's, and every gadget you can imagine. It's in a seedier part of a Singapore than you would like, there's nothing else appealing nearby. Know your prices before buying and be sure to get genuine receipt with purchase. There was plenty of tourists and locals here, and... More

You may literally find anything there from USB cakes to keyboards, cameras, mobile phones, chargers, cases, TVs, came consoles, fans, air cons, simply anything. Negotiate, be aware of the high prices in Singapore and don't fall in the business mens' traps. Nothing for every day shopping, but if you are gadget addicted or know what you need or need to...

If you smart buyer this is heaven but for foreigner and casual buyer then this can be hell....Check a few outlet and compare price. Check item carefully before buy cause you will see display on one thing and below the demo set is another type.

Although it is very crowded it's neat to look around at all the cool tech and gadgets you can buy. Also beware of people ripping you off.

This is a 5 story consumer electronics and gadget person's dream. However with the Sing $ being so strong there didn't seem to be much in the way of deals. Still a neat place to window shop.

Do your home work first, worth a look but the shop keepers are sharp and will rip you off if they can, take a backpack and place all purchased items in the backpack, just incase they are using coloured plastic bags to let other shop owners know you are an easy target to rip off by walking around advertising with...
