I have bought a video camera pen ( very handy when dealing with an awkward garage). Under £20 against £100 on a shopping chanell.
A laptop diagnostic card, handy.
A few torches. one of my brighter purchases.
Screen protectors, a lot cheaper than I could have bought here.
2 diferent finger mice/trackballs, hm......not as good as I expected.
The pricees are very good, free postage, reasonable delivery time.
In fact you've spurred me on to go n see if they have any other gadgets I fancy.
Thank you.:-D

You're welcome, so thats the positive side of dealextreme taken into account where they don't sell counterfeit goods..ayone elses opinions particularly on their black market counterfeit areas of trading?

Mind you.
I haven't had to use their customer relations yet but they can't be worse than or even as bad as Dixons and THEY sell genuine goods.

I've always had good experiences with deal extreme. As long as you know every single product they sell is a fake.

Even their R4 cards for the DS were fakes of fakes !!!!!

Delivery is always speedy enough and they do offer good deals on their items. Just dont expect high quality materials from them.

So not only do they sell fake items they can be as bad as some of the ebayers out there for getting your money back...yet people still keep posting deals from the company.

Anyone else had good or bad experiences?

I have used Dealextreme for a couple of years now and have made dozens of purchases, I have had several faulty items but had no problems in exchanging them.... they did`nt even ask for the faulty items to be returned, although the process can be a bit slow it`s only to be expected from a trader halfway around the world.
I personaly can`t fault them, they have a better customer service than a few British Company`s I could name.

I've had a few things from them, camera filters ds card, and have had no bad experience with them.
Mostly arrive within a week, but had to wait for the card a bit longer.

No complaints from me. Especially free postage from the other side of our planet.

No complaints from me too

If you see these posted, spam them, and post the reason why.
I did report them with the "proof" that they were counterfeit before, but I was told that HUKD can't make that decision of their authenticity(or words to that effect). I now just spam them minus the report.

R4 clones are sold by most retailers, not just DX. To say they have "voltage issues", is a sweeping statement, as there are loads of them, and I doubt they have any more problems than the others.

This statement is incorrect. "Flashcarts" are only banned from the "For Sale/Trade" forum.

This one I found amusing, a "genuine" Nintendo Wii Remote that was "unbadged" , several people of which were convinced it was produced in the same factory...yeah right...quick google search soon found out there were many clones of the Wii Remote, with shoddy manufacturing, and dealextreme like many a dodgy far eastern ebay seller had for sale.



I can't find these on dealextreme, the ones they sell, have this in the description:

- Works just like the original Wiimote product -- but not Wii/Nintendo … - Works just like the original Wiimote product -- but not Wii/Nintendo branded (manufacturer did not print explicit Wii branding on the product)



How anyone can confuse this 3rd party remote with a genuine one is beyond me. Unless you are referring to another one.

They were selling them as 2nd hand, not new, or unofficial. So they would not need the binary file, as it would already be on it?
They now have a message on the product page stating that they believe that they are not genuine, as "Xbox do not have a 120GB hard-drive". They also state that they will contact customers who purchased one to offer a resolution.

This is confusing, as Xbox do indeed have a 120GB.

------------------------------------------

I like DX, and have used them for about 2 years, and ordered dozens of products from them. There customer services are in the most part excellent, and better than most in the UK.

I e-mailed the Co-Op about 2 months ago regarding a late delivery, and yet to receive a reply.
DX usually get back to me within 48 hours, and send a replacement before they even receive the faulty items I am returning.

In conclusion, your evidence is mostly incorrect/flawed.

Rubbish, 120GB Xbox hard drives unofficial are sold here, they state as such, therefore needing a bin extraction ]http//ww…431

They still list it dishonestly as preowned but add this statement :

*NEW UPDATE*
This is not the genuine as we clarify early 2 days, we've found out that Microsoft Xbox 360 doesn't has the 120GB hard disk drive, this is due to the wrong info the supplier provided and we didn't check it modestly, we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience caused.
For the customer who placed the order before this announcement posted, we will contact you within 24 hours and offer a solution.

Their practices are dishonest to say the least...I have expired deals on numerous occassions and frankly get sick and tired of it.

With regards to the Wii remote, it was posted on here several months ago and I got the post deleted, ridiculously people were trying to defend it that it was genuine even though it was clearly fake, Dealextreme at that time had them listed as Nintendo "OEM" and that they were originals without the Wii Logo on them, they now have them listed as Wu Brand ]http//ww…202 yet packaging is still a total knock off of original Wii remote packaging to help fool the consumer, the only thing different now is they dont claim it to be OEM and state its not produced by Nintendo, they didn't originally.

Yes R4 clones are sold by other retailers, does it still make it right considering these can potentially damage the DS lite with voltage issues, its not a sweeping statement, a quick google will prove to you that these clone R4s have known voltage issues that have been known to blow fuses in DS's and yet still people keep posting these "deals" on here. Also if they are only banned from the for sale/trade forums, why are they deleted regularly from the deals forums?

Plenty of fake memory cards sold on Dealextreme too. SO what makes you more knowledgeable on the subject? Just because you believe their customer service to be excellent doesn't make them any better as they are dishonest with the products they sell.

The fact Dealextreme sell fake/clone stuff then when pulled up on it they backtrack with statements or blame the "supplier" just proves their dishonesty.

DX is good.

Care to elaborate why you personally think they are good?

Then stop doing it, you are not compelled to.

Members should be putting the retailers name in the title, so campaign for that to be done more regularly, and you won't click into a DX thread by mistake.

Did I state that link would have information relating to BIN extraction?! That link as I state clearly admits by DealExtreme after a still incorrectly titled "preowned" 360 hard drive, that the hard drives are actually third party. As Microsoft specially format and partition the hard drives, the ONLY way to be able to manufacture clone drives would be to EXTRACT a binary file from an ORIGINAL 360 hard disk which is ILLEGAL.

So by your own admission there, you praise them for incorrectly listing it to start with....yeah great job Dealextreme, lie that its OEM Nintendo without the Wii wording, then change it after the forum responses state that its not.

Oh and I have found the original thread relating to it, interesting reading ]http//ww…393 Clearly fake as well, as I reported back then, and according to this link ]http//ni…uk/

And a comparison of the two, the fake "OEM" and the original here ]http//ww…469 Really great job ay Dealextreme, change your wording on the item after the complaints come flooding in.

Sorry to hear you are that lazy, as you don't obviously want them banned, try putting evidence forward that postings of R4DS cards are not fake (oh you have already stated previously that they are) Its widespread reported that clone R4s being cheaply manufactured have voltage issues and can blow fuses in the DS....would you prefer that people like myself keep having to post in the deals warning of the dangers?

As I don't like the dishonest practices of Dealextreme of course I am going to challenge those that think its good here.

Whilst admitting its nice to hear they offer fast service, people seem to be blindfolded to the fact they are dishonest, and there are also cases of people not receiving goods.

Plenty of users also on Dealextremes own forum complaining about fake goods they sell, pages of them, and DealExtreme basically not changing descriptions, lying through their teeth until enough evidence is weighed against them to change :

Original thread on the Wii remotes, when they dishonestly listed them as OEM

]https//ww…579

Seeing that Ebay itself removes listings for these sorts of fake "OEM" tat, do you personally feel that HUKD should be condoning listings on this site? I am surprised that unlike Lik-Sang which actually were good because they sold some nice genuine imports of original limited editions you couldn't get in the UK and yet were still taken to court by Sony and pulled out of the marketplace, Dealextreme continues to trade with such copyright theft against Sandisk, Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft etc.

i Have used DX for many items such as DS carts and chargers and top lcds and bottom lcds....

My whole company sells there items and they are my main supplyer! i have only had a few faulty items out of hundreds!
