    It's definitely possible. You will either have to choose a CMS with some pretty heavyweight extensions (Drupal, Joomla, maybe Wordpress) or you will have to bridge together multiple scripts.
    • Reviews - You can write these in anything - Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress, vBulletin 4.x, etc...
    • DB - You could write these as articles, or you could create a custom DB for enhanced searching, sorting, and comparison options.
    • Store - What do you mean by "my product"?
    • Classifieds - I would search for classified ad extensions for Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress, and vBulletin 4.x.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    thanks ... only problem is not familiar with Joomla
    Yah DB part is some how crack my head, I'm not sure which script is providing Product compare, Custom search and bla .......
    My initial plan was, using WPMU (which i more familiar) but i worry abt the search and complicated user interface.

    Let's start there...

    Reviews - Not a problem for Wordpress
    Classifieds - Take a look at wp-classified and Another Wordpress Classifieds Plugin.
    DB - Maybe you could store the data with ES Custom Fields Interface and search it with WP Custom Fields Search?
    Store - What do you mean by "my product"? What do you want these pages to do?

    With just a few products, you might not need a major eCommerce solution.

    But... still... you might look at WP e-Commerce.
