Hi Johnson,

They are based in Hong Kong and seem pretty legit. They accept safe payment methods and have been online since 2006. But there are quite a number of negative reviews about them which we cannot verify since we do not know the people who left those reviews.

Here are a couple of links to reviews you may want to read:

Hope this helps. :)

My only experience with them was when I bought 5 PS3 controllers and after I payed I realized they weren't official Sony brand... (it didn't state it anywhere, I just happen to notice the absence of the Sony logo) I immediately canceled the order, I didn't really want to sell knock offs (though they might be worth the low price?) and I was very nervous about getting a full refund. 5 days later the refund is on it's way back to via my paypal account.

So, while I can't vouch for their products - they don't seem to be scammers :) Good luck if you try them out, I'd love to hear of your experience!

Welcome to the site Game Reaper, great first post - really helpful! :)

It's nice to hear from someone who has actually tried buying from the supplier first hand. What you just shared is quite similar to the feedbacks I found earlier.

Thanks again! Hope to see more of you on the forum.

I have heard from my close friends that they were using dealextreme.com for shopping for some time and they did not have any problems so far.

I have ordered few items last week from them but I am still waiting since items seem to be on the way now. I will let you know once i got it.

Hi There,

I would like to note that i have been using dealextreme.com for some time and i did not have any problems so far. I have received all the products i have ordered.

Although they are slow generally. Might not be a good idea for dropshipping. Usually ofter my order 3-5 days pass for their order processing. And after they send me a tracking numbers still i wait for 5-10 days for package to start moving. I usually got their post on 21-50 days here is Turkey.

But their pricing is really good. I can not even find a wholeseller that competes with dealextreme prices. Why don't you have their record in your directory?

Not a bad idea, memox!

We'll try and check them out further. If they pass our requirements we might just add them to our directory.

Happy Holidays :)
