    I just read the 'china economy' page on GBAtemp,and they said that DealExtreme will put their prices high. I'm planning to buy this: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.91

    How much do you think they'll increase the price by (in £'s)... and how can we/they prevent prices going high?

    Its not gonna increase more than a few dollars. This translates to just £2 or £3. If the price went up to $15 you would still only be paying £10 for the product.

    I have found that Focalprice has a much better selection, it's easier to find stuff, sometimes it's much cheaper than DX, and the shipping is much faster.

    focalprice will sell you "higher" powered lasers and ship them to US, dealextreme won't ship over 5mw.
