    I had heard from everyone on this forum and somewhere else that the site "Deal Extreme" was a good and reliable
    place to get your DS/PSP/Gadgets/etc. So i decided to buy a DS Lite replacement case from DX (Ordered on 27/09/09 - September 27, 2009).
    I was constantly checking on the status every 2 days, but it was still at the processing step. After a few weeks (October 18,2009) I sent
    a ticket on the support section and it finally changed to "Shipped" status. It has been almost 2 weeks and the package still hasnt
    arrived yet and my DS Lite's plastic hinge area broke on the right side so im in desperate need of replacing it.

    This was my first order at DX and they dissapoint me D:
    Hopefully they havent disapointed you guys here at the forums lately :/.

    Deal Extreme is awesome.

    The only drawback is slow ass shipping times. The prices are nice, yes?

    Let me tell you, once I ordered an AceKard 2i from them, and it took almost two months at "shipping" status. When you order from Deal Extreme, wait for a really.. really. long wait.

    I guess you get what you pay for.

    i waited over a month for my m3izero to arrive, but it arrived.
    ive used dx for a couple of years, had a couple of problems with defective items but they have always sorted me out eventually. just be patient, they are slow but they always come through in the end.

    I've been ordering from DealExtreme for years. Sometimes they're pretty fast (I've had packages that arrives in a week or so), sometimes it takes 2 months. That rarely happens, but I'm prepared for the wait.

    YOU have failed Deal Extreme [​IMG]

    I also finally ordered for the firs time ever like last week, i was able to set up my post box in the university, so i can finally have stuff easily shipped to me. I wonder how long it will take. I think i needs about 3 more weeks or so [​IMG]

    Don't worry, you'll get it.....once it's shipped, you have to wait for two to four weeks to get the pack..

    They are slow but they are reliable, bought couple of times from them, never had any problems, my friend bought Perfect M3 Real batch, and received only slot 2 Expansion, wrote to them, and they sent the slot 1 cart the next day..
    Never heard of anyone that didn't get what they bought....it only took a while to get to them [​IMG]

    Dealextreme is great, but terribly slow. You get used to it after a while.

    Not so far
    I ordered a lot of stuffs on DX and i always get what i paid for...
    I'm in France and it usually takes 2 or 3 weeks since the "shipped" status.
    I guess it's a good shipping time since you don't pay any charges for it.
    Just wait and see... You'll get what you paid for!

    pretty much what everyone says.

    actually getting the item can take time, fastest was 2 weeks for me, longest 6 or 7 weeks. but i've heard some people get it in 2 months. and if there is a defect or error, expect even more downtime.

    good thing that never happened to me out of my 10+ orders.

    Sorry but are you kidding us my friend! DX is SUPERB site. Ok you have to wait for sure 2 weeks to get what your ordered. But i have made more than 10 orders from this site all came safe and sound with nice and secure packaging. I don't want to speak about the factor prices, anyone around here knows that they are the best. Also the range of products is extreeemly huge. I stopped using ebay for electronic stuff as soon as i found DX. (I'm really happy customer, not I)
