I bought a 32 GB microSD Extreme Pro here (from one of the biggest shops in this square). Price tag was S$90. And when I was at Changi Airport, it's only S$57 (same product). And at Sentosa Vivocity was S$60 for the 64 GB (I thought I don't need 64GB card).

So much to choose from in this mall by way of electronics, parts, cameras and gadgets. Make sure that you know the prices before you go so as to tell if you are getting a bargain. In our case, a lot of items were cheaper back in Australia, but still came out with a few items and fun gadgets.

Not the cheapest. Staff not that friendly. You can buy the things that sell much cheaper on eBay. Not really worth going except for if you need to hide from the rain or get some air con.

Enjoy coming here mainly to browse the latest electronic gizmos and gadgets on offer. Have bought a couple of electronic items from here including a camera and computer memory. Generally pleased with purchases and price paid but did do research before coming here and took along a Singaporean relative which seemed to help. Items can also be bought in genuine... More

If you are looking for affordable gadgets, then you are at the right place. Since this place is mostly ran by Chinese and Indians, be wary as a lot of scams were reported here. If you are not going to buy anything from them, TELL THEM. Do not let them get the item that you are looking for because the... More

- rather a freewheeling place; if you're ever going to get scammed in Singapore, this will be most likely where it happens first. - expect plenty of shops touting very attractive deals, some will have staff pushing flyers into your hands. - always do your background reading before buying. Never purchase anything straight off - this may help keep even... More

Buyer beware is the law of the land in this electronics shopping mall. 6 levels and lots of retailers selling authentic and 'not so authentic' electronic devices. Most stores are non diversified and a lot of them will carry much of the same things, but provided you invest time searching and you know what you're looking for, you can find... More

Bought an IPhone 4 and promised an Apple Iwatch at EXPO sale for 148. Turns out it was a stupid smart watch which does not even says Iwatch. Sales rep was not helpful and kept on insisting the watch was Iwatch but also called U8 smart watch. Sales rep said that it was an apple iwatch at the expo sale.... More

Many shops at this mall has been known to cheat customers, including us locals and foreigners alike. The shops may sell things at cheap prices at first, but later u would have to pay extra "warranty" later on.. So, from a local's point of view to future /current tourists/foreigners, kindly avoid this mall at all costs!

Over the years, shops have been conning the general public especially unassuming tourists. How would I know? Well, I'm Singaporean. Don't ever step in and if you do, don't show the salespeople that you are an enticed customer. Its that bad.
