I never had any issues with them in the past and bought lots of stuff from them. Never once been hit for import fees either

Pay with PayPal. You are protected then.
I have ordered high value items from them but everything I have ordered has always been delivered.
that was a good deal for a fraction of a second until i got to the end of the title

its not just aobut receiving it
its the trash aftercare you get
Had a quick look at the German YouTube review.

The laptop looks exactly like the Medion X6603 that I bought for £720 a week or so ago, from Argos, and has the same basic spec. The X6603 is a rebrand of the Lenovo Y520. There is a Lenovo Y720 but as I recall, that comes with the Nvidia 1060; not the 1050Ti.

£660 from Gearbest vs £720 from Argos (admittedly as a one-off clearance sale) doesn't sound a compelling deal to me. Sorry.
Bargain, great spec for price. Lenovo laptops have my favourite keyboards and track pads.

Windows 10 Home Chinese Version???


It doesn’t matter any more with Win 10. If it’s chinese just use a YouTube guide to log in and sign in and the key will be tied to your windows account then install English version from usb stick and all don
Every Chinese deal that comes up on here members rightly consider the risk - no warranty ,Customs and VAT , customer service etc .

Then magically come the comments - " I've had no problems " , ordered £5000 of stuff from them in the past few months . etc etc .

Remember when these merchants were barred from HUKD for years ,until a few months ago ? Then they were all allowed with no explanation as to the change in policy

Anyone else received at that time a "Dear HUKD member " email ? many posted on here . Basically paying for good comments on here .

Not saying that all the positive comments are incentivised , some members understand the risks and are happy with those risks , but unless you do I would advise to steer clear .

There was a reason these Chinese "deals" were barred from HUKD for many years - Now they are not ,and HUKD has not bothered to inform its members as to why they are no longer barred or the risks associated with buying from these sellers

Cue all the incentivised members to post glowing reviews and mislead less savvy members - all for a few bob
It’s a good deal as long as you take into consideration no warranty, pay with PayPal is the best.

But you lose your S75 protection and rely on Paypal to refund you when it goes pear shaped (as it often does ).

Exactly
Why do HUKD allow this site to be posted
But then if you post an international deal it would be deleted, and also they dont even allow you to post sites like groupon

Obvisouly there is some corrution with Gearbest paying HUKD to be allowed to be sited on here

its the mods of the site that seem to post half as well for the commission

quite a few of those items have been of 'dubious legality' with breached licensing/copyright etc

I love those sites, my keyword feed is pretty much only comprised of them - you know what you are letting yourself in for and it's just common sense that you'll have to compromise somewhere (delivery speed, returns/customer service) if you ship things over from China, but for me the savings are well worth it... The performance and/or build quality are far superior to similarly priced items from UK retailers.

I'd be a bit more careful about a £660 laptop (do more research about the reliability of that particular model), but would probably still go for it if I needed/wanted a laptop. As long as they are delivered intact and you look after them, there shouldn't be any problems, and you can find simple YouTube tutorials for nearly any type of repair you'd need to perform anyway. I'm not really bothered about a lack of extensive aftercare/warranty.

It's a risk/reward thing which the individual needs to come to their own conclusion on. If people don't bother to clue themselves up on the risks, or the companies they are handing money over to... Then more fool them. I like using those sites and find the posts on here about them very helpful.

HUKD taking commission and planting of incentivised comments is wrong though, I agree on that... That NordVPN "deal" that was pinned to the front page for 3 weeks being a blatant example of it.
Just in case anyone was wondering what this Chinese Lenovo R720 import corresponds to, here's a YouTube comparison of the 'normal' western version Y520 & Y720 models. Just going by the spec & basic shape, it looks like the Chinese R720 is actually the Y520; not the Y720.

Chinese sellers with good reputation were always allowed on hukd as I remember. But you're right, in past I had many deals not granted on here because of poor reputation (inc. now very popular eglobalcentral) I also had 2 accounts banned and never reallowed because of self promotion despite I'm just normal ambulance driver and have nothing to do with bussiness. I believe hukd must have changed owner or something like that and it all went down the hill...
Edit: Even this post was put on hold and later allowed which wouldn't probably happen in past as I announced my 2 banned accounts in this post
