Definitely the Singapore place to go for technology and gadgets but be prepared to spend the time to look around, do the maths then haggle. But make sure you do your research.

It is probably worth the visit especially if you need something whilst in singapore. Was a good place to buy a portable wifi router to plug into wired lan in hotel to use wireless devices. Many sellers seem to play games with me as im a foreigner and I just walked off, ended up buying from the quiet but honest... More

We shopped at Hi-V Trading Pte Ltd in the ground floor. Here are the problems we had. 1) Lying about warranty being international: The guys told us that a $1200 camera comes with full local warranty. But upon trying to register in the Nikon website for warranty, we found out that it's a grey market product. The warranty will neither... More

Every country has the gadget mecca. This is Singapore's its got hardware, computer parts, rare parts, and some Audio stuff. Its not for the faint of heart as some scammers will pounce on your lack of knowledge of a particular product. If you are buying here make sure you know what you are buying, what comes in the box, if... More

Took a trip to sim lim. It was late in the evening and over half if the shops were all ready closed. Didn't have anything particular in mind to purchase but didn't come across any deals. Prices seemed similar to other shops and offers I've seen around Singapore. But don't come with the horror story's and potential bad after sales... More

We are very disappointed by those liers and swindlers in Sim Lim Square Singapore. This made us never come back to Singapore again. We were looking for mobile phone stores center, and were advised by a taxi driver to go to Sim Lim square. The average price of the item was 980 SGD. We succeeded to negotiate it at 800... More

I used to live in Singapore and stopped by this place all the time. I still stop by at least once during my visits to see friends. There's a huge variety of little shops with all kinds of electronics and parts. It seems to be going a bit downhill though. For US visitors, there aren't really any deals unless you... More
