    I would actually advise against that. Feedback has some negative remarks saying he didn't ship, and several people have had issues with purchases from Ali-Express.

    Even so that's not a good reason to simply order it. Chances are, if or when it arrives and if it's defective, you'd probably have to send it back or some crazy thing like that. It's a messy process, and would you want to end up waiting another month for a replacement to arrive? Best to find a place that is reputable, and purchase it once. Take my word for it, you're much better off looking elsewhere, as this seller was brought up on another topic and there was a lot of dislike about his service.

    how else will these tight wads learn if they dont loose some cash because they thought they were getting a bargain

    its like going to Hong Kong and expecting to buy nothing thats a knockoff or a Rip off

    Hey, if these people want to fuck themselves with a shitty reseller, that's their business. I just wanted to *try* and point a finger in the right direction. It's like OOOH PRICE LOW MUST BUY without even considering the consequences of WHY it might be priced so.

    But its not really help, sadly. Most times there is always a catch with the lower price. If a deal is too good to be true, it usually is. It's not like I have gold nuggets falling out my ass, but having dealt with almost all resellers within mainland China and Hong Kong, I can tell you right now that you're in the wrong here.

    It says next to the shipping time, 'ships out within 58 days'. This means the seller doesnt have to send it by DHL for 58 days.

    buy getting them ripped off?
    because thats really what people want

    how do people know your not the guy on alipress pulling the scam

    if you want a legit gateway, go through there official sellers list and find the cheapest

    otherwise you might get one of those defective gateway devices that are cropping up

    The tension and demand for the Gateway 3DS are already at boiling levels, and this will more than likely end up with a customer who gets ripped off. Sure, you might get a working unit day one, but what happens if it dies on day 3? Or day 10? Day 30? Good luck getting a refund with your credit card company as most times you're not going to get a refund after X days. The bottom line here is if you pay a lower price, you shouldn't go out expecting perfect goods. You may, and if you do that is awesome, but the lower price means buyer beware.

    Personally, I'm happy with the Gateway and where it's at and progressing to. I find the price, for a first generation flash cart, more than acceptable.
