Sim Lim Square is a great place to get some interesting tech in my opinion, but absolutely nothing that is expensive. On floors 3 and up, you can find some great stuff actually. I... read more

A convenient place to shop around but not necessary to buy. Mostly are small shops and there are cases of customer complaints. If keen to buy, do check prices with the bigger retailers like Courts, Best Denki before coming here. If the price is cheaper than them, do check for originality, accessories provided, international warranties and finally the price quoted.

This place is quite an eye opener for foreigners who has never seen an IT mall. This is the place to get a hands on feel on any tech items but not necessarily the cheapest place to buy them. Go store to store to enquire about the prices of products you're interest in. It'll surprise you that official stores sometimes... More

Got an amazing deal at a store here. Still have my laptop today with no issues. They also gave me a pretty sweet deal to upgrade my ram to 16GB. For those that have had issues with purchases here and felt ripped off you should really do your own research before buying anything!

Sim Lim Square (SLS) is the house of all kinds of electronics including cameras, mobile phones, computers, etc., We can get all types of electronic items and their accessories in a single roof. If we need anything, we go to SLS but not to anywhere else. It is better to do bargain and buy the items cheaper. Also, we should... More

A huge place to do some computer parts and electronic! But be careful, some stores sell non original and can scam. Look for bigger stores!

Avoid this shop, bought a camera at almost $200 more than retail price. As a general rule check online first before buying any expensive tech stuff. Expensive lesson learnt.

The Mall might be a bit seedy but the area has lots of outdoor performers, stalls and food vendors all around. Its a walk away from the Bugis shopping areas as well so the options are open. There are shops and just watch out for girls turning up asking if you want a massage. I dont know why but they... More
