    Wow usually i receive the items within 2 weeks.

    o rly? Ive only ever ordered off their once, and it was around october time last year...package turned up 2 days before crimbo lol.

    Don't forget DealExtreme was closed from 1st Feb till 7th Feb for the Chinese New Year.

    Dealextreme seem to be hit and miss. Depending on what you order and how popular the item. I've had some items in 2 weeks, some month and half.

    We had a ceramic peeler which said that, took about 2 months! They did update & email when despatched - unfortunately I never got to try it 'cause the wife chucked it out with the peelings by mistake first time of using!

    I order from DX quite a bit but NEVER for anything I need quickly! Sometimes it will be despatched within a week, sometimes it's a month or more (DX don't stock a lot of items but order them in from suppliers (see the bottom of a product page to see which supplier it will come from) when they get an order).....and then you have Hong Kong Post which have a hit and miss delivery policy at the best of times (rarely lose items completely but shipping seems to be based on a random number generator basis - some items 2 days, others 3 weeks!)

    Also, as has been said above, it has been Chinese New Year and things take ages to get back to normal after that as it is one of their bigger holidays.

    On the plus side, your money is pretty safe - DX have been around for some time and are fairly reputable (for a Chinese exporter anyway) even if CS is basic.
