    There are 4 times in a year when IT Electronics stuffs are relatively cheaper then normal. These are electronics fairs like ITShow, PC Show, Comex and Sitex. They are normally held during the local holidays term breaks. These shows are normally 4 days per show with the largest discount on the last day (which is usually a Sunday).

    The next show is Comex which is 1-Sep-2011 to 4-Sep-2011. During these shows, a number of freebies are bundled with the product and the prices are better. All major brands exhibit their wares during that period.

    Alternatively, you can head for Sim Lim Square and you can get a feel of true pricing from pricelist downloads at http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg. One word of caution though. Avoid any shops on the 1st and 2nd level.

    The other place is Funan Centre in the heart of town.

    For the locals, besides Sim Lim Square, we tends to patronise electronics stores like Courts, Harvey Normal, Gain City and Best Denki which have stores in most sub-urban housing areas. Prices are a little higher compared to Sim Lim Square.

    We like going to Funan than to Sim Lim Square. I think the vendors there are more polite. The prices are just as much as Sim Lim Square too.

    I would advise for you to skip Sim Lim square, there are other places where u can get electronic products at a better price. You may wish to try Challenger at Funan, it is now 24 hours. Convenient for you if you have spent the day travelling and do ur shopping at nite. But do take note of the last operating hours of the public transportation ie buses and the trains(mrt).
    What sort of electronic equipments are u looking for?
    You may also try Audio House #01-50/51, Liang Court Shopping Centre(next to Clarke Quay), Tel: 6336 7177
