    What's your experiances with their return if something is busted policy? Like I'd like to order from them but I dont want to get something dead and be forced to pay an arm and a leg shipping to get my thing replaced. In the end wasting tons of time.
    thanks in advance

    I doubt you'll get a defective item, they have a really good service. I've received my 1gb Kingston MicroSD in less than a week in a perfect packaging. What exactly are you going to buy from them?

    With so many other places offering the R4 at a reasonable price, you don't have to get it from dealextreme unless you want to save a few bucks. They are reputable though. They do ship from Asia so it'll take a little while to get your order shipped.

    my friend returned 50 of them it took them 3 months to get him a replacement (he bought 300 of them), he sells them for about $50 at school without a micro sd card, but my other friend returned his defective M3 simply and he got a replacement in 4 weeks, they pay for return ups shipping if you live in the usa.

    I'm quite sure they have a great return policy and you can return within thirty days or something no matter what (e.g. if you decide you don't want it anymore), but I think you may have to pay for shipping fee back either way.

    i had to return a defective m3 simply, they covered the difference between shipping+m3 price and a supercard ds one

    everything just takes time [​IMG]

    If you buy something from any Selling site, and you recieve it broken, they are obliged to give you a refund or replacement.

    Heh! I've been thinking about exactly the same thing, over here in Australia they're mainly overpriced... Problem is they're sold out... [​IMG]

    I bought an English R4 from DealExtreme about a week ago, no problems at all! Arrived in about 10 days, but that's Australia... Recommended seller, though you should go for express if you can afford it!

    Alright thanks for the info well now it seems like wait for a bit to get the r4 sold out again..sigh.. or I might dish out a few bucks and order form a store in usa. My main issue about flashcards atm is price cause i quit my job for the summer. Dont want to start a huge wave of hate towards me but scone is looking kinda nice atm 37 bucks of dealexteme while r4 is like..40ish + min w/o shipping. Oh and yes I have heard of gameyeeah. But I think you need to pay shipping also and its based in china so i mind as well buy in the usa.

    They're really polite and helpful but because of the distance it's pretty slow. They do however now have US offices you can send defective items to.

    its not their responsibility to pay for return shipping, though

    dealextreme takes care of their customers like that [​IMG]

    SCone is more than R4. That R4 $46.90 includes R4 + 1GB Kingston (J) microSD. The SCone (~$37) is just the flashcard.
