It was nice to see the variety but I was surprised that the price level was so high. Was hoping for some great offers, but I didn't see any.

The quality of the shops and products has been improving greatly between my yearly visits here. I believe now that there is only top quality repairers and products now.

I'm usually not the nostalgic type, but the place used to be a happy mess of gadgets of dubious usefulness. It has been mostly reorganized and has now lost its originality. Now it's very similar to Singapore's Simlin with the same deals that you can find everywhere in the world.
Go there if you know what you want to buy, but browsing for original goods is now a thing of the past.

Pantip Plaza used to be "the" place to go for electronics and IT items. It consists of many floors of IT and electronics vendors. I have been visiting it about once per year for many years, but found it to be in slow steady decline. Vendors are a bit too pushy in trying to sell their wares, and the selection is "so-so". Most of the emphasis has shifted to selling cellphones and cellphone related paraphernalia. One disdvantage is that it is not right at a train station, so one has to plan on using a taxi ir to walk a bit to get to it.
There are a couple of picturesque eateries at the top floor if you are accustomed to local food.
So not plan on returning items for refund; this is actually a common problem throughout Southeast Asia. In the Philippines, for example, they will open and try a stereo set before you buy it, but once you buy it you cannot return it. The same attitude is present at Pamtip Plaza and most places in that part of the world.

Pantip Plaza lives up to its reputation of having a wide-range of technology products at affordable prices. That said, not everything here is a bargain and people shouldn't expect all stores to be equal in price or service. This is a mall after all. What this place does offer, uniquely at least in Bangkok, is the ability to compare products and prices in one place.
My tips:
- Allocate some time to walk all the levels and compare the prices and specs of what you're after. There are hundreds of vendors here and I found some fantastic bargains after taking the time to look around (the product I bought was 50% cheaper than the same product I picked up in another place when I first walked in).
- Know in advance what you're after as it is quite hard to speak to some of the sellers here (command of English and willingness to serve do change from one shop to the next)
