    Any you were happy with? Any you were unhappy with?

    I bought this little lazer/lighter/light from DX. Broke the next day. Not sure if it is the manufacturers fault or the fact I let my brother use it but its broken now.

    I bought so much from them... but what has dissatisfied me...

    I guess one of their mp4 players did and...really not much more since I usually don't have high expectations.

    I got a green laser pointer from there, and it still works perfect. Great build quality, and exactly what they said it would be. So yea, I've done pretty well with DX so far.

    I think you can ask for a replacement.

    I bought those keyring remotes from them, that claims to work on most tvs. It didn't work on mine even though it was on the list of tvs that worked..

    USB Male to 4-pin Male Convertor Plug I have some stuff that needs this plug and I am sick of pulling out the cord
    USB to 5-pin Connector Dongle Same reason as above but for MP3 player
    Kingston USB 2.0 Jump Drive 1GB Installing a GNU/Linux distro to it(Slax Frodo,Slax or SliTaz)
    In-Ear Stereo Earbuds Good quality(had some before) and cheap

    I've only bought one thing from them-DSTT.

    I got it fairly quickly--about 6 or 7 days--and it arrived in crisp condition and so far has worked perfectly for me, so I have to say that I am satisfied with my DealExtreme purchase 100%.

    Maybe I'm doing wrong then [​IMG]
    That's the only item that I didn't like but it was only $2 so I didn't care much. Everything else I've bought from there was good.

    The only things I've bought from DealExtreme are R4DS and EZ flash 3on1 back in October 2007, including a microSD card and screen protectors, the EMS shipping for everything back then was $13 USD [​IMG]

    I've only bought a tri-wing and it works great! [​IMG] Not much can go wrong with that...
    But I've started a wishlist including lots of little gadgets...laptop fans, A mouse for the finger, weird secret drawer box, Solar cells...I'll widdle down the list and get the things I want soon.

    the problem with dealextreme is that you see lots of little cheap bits you want and then all of the suddend your spending $100s [​IMG]
