As Phnom Penh becomes increasingly more developed its computing and tech needs are growing too. Although there are many places to pick up computers and tech accessories around town, you would be hard pushed to find a more well stocked computer shop than Chantra Computer.
Chantra Computer has expanded from their original computer store in Toul Tom Pong to another two locations in Phnom Penh, one on Kampuchea Krom, and another on Street 315 in Tuol Kork. They also have a small shop on Charles De Gaulle (also known as the Temple Road) in Siem Reap.
Chantra Computer is a reliable supplier for computers, laptops, monitors, and gaming equipment in Phnom Penh, carrying a wide range of name-brand equipment at reasonable prices (I’m typing this on a Logitech keyboard that’s hooked up to a Dell monitor, both of which I purchased at Chantra Computer).
Chantra Computer is the place that computer nerds recommend for all of your PC needs, particularly if you are planning to build your own computer from scratch. They also carry replacement monitors, hard drives, a new mouse, or computer repairs. Chantra has speedy and professional service, although if your questions are too complicated, they will often direct you to one of the many computers set up in the shop to browse their catalog.
Laptops range in price from less than $400 to over $2000 (brands include Lenovo, Asus, Acer) and they also have a limited selection of used Mac products. They also have a huge range of gaming equipment, from computers built for gaming to controllers, speakers, headsets, and multimedia accessories. In fact, they go far as to call themselves the Republic of Gamers!
When you purchase at Chantra Computer, be sure to check their warranty, as it varies for different types of products. They do not offer returns which can be a bit nerve-wracking (but is standard in Cambodia), but they do offer repairs and will check all products before you leave the store to make sure they are in proper working order.
