I, too, prefer no hyphen.
I like Buy Gadgets.com and Gadgetsplace.com although I'd prefer GadgetPlace.com (without the "s")

Yup those are good suggestions. Definitely don't go for domain names with numbers in them, i feel that numbers in a domain name make it look a bit spammy.

Thank you Rexanne and best123! I like GadgetPlace myself. Guess that this is what I'm gonna choose in the end. However, others are welcome to comment on the topic!

hi nick...if you are looking at SEO point of view then a domain with hypen in it makes sense but if you are looking at a brandable domain name then without hypen is always prefered....btw i like BestGadgets.com as normally while searching for gadgets people use words like best, cool, latest, unique, new...

I am getting away from using hyphens myself in domain names. As for the gadget domains I would say none. Have you ever typed the word "gadget" into a search engine. I know I havent or ever would. Users are much more specific on what they are looking for.
Just my opinion

Also drop the numbers, drop the hyphen. I also dislike "buy" and "get" in domain names. Sounds to me like a hawker on the midway............then again, do you want classy or trashy. Both work in their own way...........
I am not keen on the word "gadget" but from your list, I would vote for "gadgetworld".
Just my opinion and I have thousands.You must climb this mountain. There is no elevator. ---- Don't stick your finger in the liquid nitrogen.

Thanks for your input guys! It's very useful and very much appreciated. However, I guess the word "gadget" has misled all of you. I've just used it randomly to make up a combination. Anyway, from what I've read so far the potential best names appear to be:
I quite like all of them. Would anyone have an advice as to what to choose? I'm looking for a more "brandable" domain name, as noted by id2k.

Two of my domain names include hyphens and from experience I find that given the name "shop-place.com" engines will find my site with searches for "shop.com" and "place.com."
Perhaps the best bet is without the hyphen, but I had other reasons for using a hyphen.~Rhia7 -- Remember the 7

If you're looking for more "brandable" names, maybe you should consider something that may not necessarily reflect your product - but a name that can't be forgotten too easily (or worse, confused with the other thousand similar ones out there). Think "TuCows" or "DogPile" or "Amazon", etc.
Also, here's a little bit of info on hyphens (somewhat out of context), and some pretty interesting comments/discussions regarding them... http://www.seroundtable.com/archives/004207.html

I always go for no hyphens at all and always dot com. You can SEO any type of domain/site but with a something.com it's better for branding and offline advertising as well.
