    HI,

    I was looking for a new flashcart and I found this shop: http://www.dealextreme.com/
    They claim that they ship worldwide for free and I wanted to know if this is reliable.

    Can someone who lives outside share his experience with that store? I would really appreciates it.

    They are reliable, but very slow. It can take 3 weeks to get your order.

    @flamesmaster: Send them an e-mail and ask them the status of your order. You can also track your order online if it's left their warehouse.

    You will find out that most people actually buy from there. They have the lowest prices. The one negative fact is that their shipping is very slow. Some even say it might take up to a month

    I really wanted to order from there but my country doesnt support paypal (yet) and thats the only method available for payment

    I ordered my Christmas presents December 1st, chose EMS (That's DHL to Netherlands) and they arrived in February. Good luck.

    Amazing but slow, I personally recommend only to use them when a product has a review or three.

    i have bought loads of flashcarts from dealextreme , possibly the cheapest place ive found .

    the delivery is free like they say but be prepared to wait , ive waited from 1 week to 4 weeks for my stuff to be delivered to the uk , its always been delivered no probs , but if you order just be patient with the delivery .

    can recommend them for the best price , just not the best delivery speed .

    Out of the corner of your eye
    DHL = Courier

    EMS = Air Mail Service

    They are not the same thing ...

    If you chose EMS, then DHL would not have been the carrier ...

    I have bought at least 3 or 4 things off of DealExtreme. They are great, very cheap, very reliable, and the shipping is basically always 2 weeks to get to me. (Which I don't really mind).

    Thanks for sharing your stories.

    So the shipping to countries other than the US is slow other than that its a cheap store.

    Edit: One week sllide? That is very good to hear.

    Great price, great service, responds to emails.

    But they just sell things eh. Make sure you want the item(s) before asking them to sell them to you.

    I bought my R4v2 from them and considered it a good transaction (this was back in nov 2007) and the shipping speed was as good as I require from any international retailer. People that consider waiting 2 weeks intolerable need to slow the f**k down and smell the roses.

    I've looked at their products listed though, and some simply don't "do it" for me.
    But they don't make the stuff they just sell it.

    Learn if you want the item by reading the forum.
    Decide if their price is ok and either buy it or don't.

    Make sure they have the stock, read what comments ppl are posting about the product as if you order a flash-cart which is out of stock you could be in for a wait.
    SAYING THAT, they are really cheap and when they actually sent my card it came in just over a week (I'm from the uk)


    The Edge card is prolly the best card available on the site IMO

    I will be going for a "Extreme Flash Advance EFA-Linker" and "TopToy DSTT". Now I will just have to wait until my PayPal gets activated. [​IMG]

    Ordered my SCDS1 SDHC, and 20 bucks worth of accessories off of them. Great price, and great services. However, the shipping did take a while (2 weeks exactly for my Stylus, cases, skin. 5 more days for Hori screen protector, and 4 days for SCDS1 to arrive. In total, it took me around 3 and a half weeks.) But I didn't mind, because I was already prepared to wait for a long time.
