Good electronic item buying place

This place provides access to many electronic items and accessories but one needs to be cautious as there is no guarantee of any items

Sim Lim Square does not disappoint when you want to buy electronics in Singapore. The huge mall sells items ranging from cameras to security cameras, laptops, television, gadgets for your laptop/desktop/phone to even chocolate! It is also extremely accessible via the MRT (alight at Downtown Line Rochor station). If you're lucky and search deep enough, you can get items at... More

Had a fleeting visit here on my last stay and found it to be disappointing. Prices seems to be a lot higher than before, if found little that was significantly cheaper than here in the U.K. However, if you're after a quirky accessory then this is definitely the place to go, there's stacks! Worth a visit if you're a techie.

There is a Jewelry Store in unit #01-19 that sells Chinese jewelry as well as Jade etc. I always buy my Jewelry there and receives good praise from my friends in USA. The owner of the shop is trustworthy. If you are in this complex and looking for Jewelry pieces. You... More

Just short walking distance from my hotel adjacent to Rochor MRT. I visited once and found out that this place is not for me to shop. Dubious stuff and bargaining.

Best avoid this place as it is no more a reliable shopping hub for electronics. Prices too high and quality of goods is not at par. However if around there donot miss the food court in basement.

I was travelling light and only had my iPad Mini 4 for internet access. Typing emails and using FB messenger became a pain with no keyboard so I decided to check out the Sim Lim Centre for some sort of compact bluetooth keyboard that would work with the Mini 4 (a relatively new model from Apple). After trolling floor after... More

I seldom publish commentaries on the internet, but I felt like this time this awful customer experience needed to be spread : 1st day : I obtain a repair of my battery + screen + central button for 100 (SGD). Everything is fine, my iPhone works again. 2nd day : I acknowledge the touchscreen is working poorly so I go... More

My laptop screen was cracked and the official Lenovo service store wanted $800 to repair. I contacted a couple of other repair places in Singapore and they couldn't give me a fixed repair price. I had read the warnings and was forewarned about coming to this place but I had no choice. I got my laptop screen replaced in a... More

After a few instances of very bad publicity they have tried to clean up their act a bit and while it's not as bad as before I would not really visit here unless you really need to come to a specific place. If you looking for computer stuff better to go to one of the reputable chains.
