What about Google Scholar?

Google Scholar is a search engine, not a database. It is easy to use for the beginner, but the limited search functionality often returns results that are not as on topic as you might like.

Since it is easy and returns so many results, it provides an 'instant gratification' that often leads the searcher to believe they've done an exhaustive search, when really they could be missing many important studies.
