1. OverviewThe shop Fuwell is located in on the third level of Sim Lim Square, which, incidentally, is the electronics and computer haven of Singapore. Whenever I need to buy computer hardware or check out component prices, my standard practice is to zip down to Sim Lim Square and grab the price list from Fuwell. You can also print out a PDF copy from this link if you want. Extremely convenient.
I use Fuwell's
prices as my benchmark before I start bargain hunting. But more often than not,
I find myself coming back to Fuwell to buy my gizmo because it is not only very
reasonable in terms of price, it also stocks an astounding variety of computer
hardware. And oh, did I say the staff are knowledgeable? I say that again
because many of the shop assistants in Sim Lim Square do not know the difference
between an ISA motherboard and a PCI-Express motherboard. Or a Nvidia card
versus a Radeon card, and so on.
3. So What Do They Sell?Typically, the stuff that is sold at Fuwell include computer motherboards, CPUs, memory chips, graphics cards, sound cards, hard drives, optical drives, monitors and printers. Add to that a huge variety of computer peripherals such as video capture cards, mice, LAN cables, routers, wireless cameras, MP3 players and thumb drives. When I need to upgrade or buy a new desktop, the first place I check out will be Fuwell.
3. The StaffI know a couple of staff there by name. One of them (a spectacled one) is called Andy and he is simply fabulous. If there is an award for 'Best Computer Shop Service Staff', I'd give it to him. I mean, I'll be telling him I want a simple, no-frills PCI-Express motherboard with a Nvidia card and 1 GB of DDR-2 RAM, along with a simple Soundblaster card and a 19 inch LCD monitor and he will know exactly what I'm talking about. And he gives me the best prices too, without any hardsell. I simply love it.
ConclusionI know I've heartily recommended Fuwell to you and I just wanna say that I am in no way affiliated with the shop . I simply want to tell you about its excellent good service and how you can save yourself a lot of retail headaches when you're next hunting for computer hardware in Singapore. Trust me, Sim Lim Square has its share of crooky vendors but Fuwell is one of the rare ones which shines through. Thanks again, Fuwell.
