I was there yesterday and it’s a graveyard of once bustling shops. One or two dealers that were worth seeing but don’t waste your time going. Rather go to MBK there is far more.

Don't waste your cab fare or your time.
Sadly, the bustling Pantip Plaza/IT Mall so many of us remember and loved so much is no more. The building is pretty much gutted with only a handful of hardware dealers on the 3rd level and some stalls selling gadgets on the ground level. Obviously another victim of the destructive Covid 19 epidemic.
It was gut wrenching and ghost like to see floor after floor with all these empty shops.
The place is changing its name as well. It will now be called AEC Trade Center Pantip Wholesale Destination.
Hopefully the owners/developers can entice back the traders, breathe some life back into this sad building and ultimately resurrect this former "Temple Of Tech".

Was looking forward to a buzzing sim lim experience but was in for a disappointing trip. The only thing open were some hardware shops on the 3rd floor and that's it. If you're looking for cables, batteries and cpus then you might be interested, but there's really nothing fun to be bought here. Was looking for a laptop bag but couldn't find that either. A big disappointment.

Having lived in Bangkok for 17 years, i was shocked to see how dead Pantip Plaza was. Before you could not move for shops and customers. We went today and around 60% of all stores were empty. Whole floors with nothing. The only shops left we empty.
We tried to get a replacement battery, normally no problem, but now we were told come back in two weeks.
Sadly time has caught uo with this once wonderful mall, its time to reimagine it as something else. I certainly will never go there again.

A friend had recommended that I check out Pantip Plaza because of my interest in pc and personal electronics. The hobbyist and electronics enthusiast will certainly be excited to roam around the mall and investigate the various stores and booths. While the location has certainly seen better days - the deals still exist and the variety of products will keep even the most selective consumer engaged. I was on the prowl for a bluetooth audio speaker set and was quite happy with the choices and what I found. The mall still has the various knock-off and copycat products and if you're into software, everything is available. I had spent some time at MBK -- the monster mall in Bangkok that sells everything. The selection between MBK and Pantip aren't much different -- but the prices at Pantip are certainly better for the items that I purchsed (power adapters, cables, speakers, ear buds) I'll certainly go back when I return to Bangkok on my next vacation.

This is one of the place in Bangkok where you can find different categories of electronics items for variety prices. But be careful you have to check the product before buying. So don't be blind. Happy shopping..

Now I prefer to buy on the net, Amazon for instance, to be sure I get exactly what I have ordered.
Fakes or hidden refurbished items are a problem today and you can't be really sure that what you get there is what you have paid for.
In the past the prices where worth the risk, not any more.

I would advise to not buy electronics in the Pantip mall in Bangkok. I purchased Bose wireless head phones. One earphone was broken inside the "new" packaged box. The sound from the one that wasn't broken sounds like the speaker has been blown out. These vendors are selling garbage in my opinion.
