    I've used them only once (ordered some cheap crap to test their reliability) and I recieved the items within 2 weeks of ordering (just before christmas which is pretty good). I'd consider them next time with something alittle bit more expensive maybe.

    My order was shipped 2 days from the order time, so that's pretty good I guess, still waiting for it to get here, but that shouldn't be too long seeing as though hong kong to Australia is pretty quick.

    In my opinion, this processing time is somewhat better than DX, with DX despite the 'in stock - ships in 1-3 days', my order stays in 'expedited order received - in stock' for like 5 days...

    Customer support is not that great, but if you can get into contact with the guy on live support its pretty good!

    I presume shipping from focalprice would be the same as Dealextreme and other suppliers from hongkong.

    I would suggest against double posting next time as you might get warned, use the edit button to add more to your post next time =P

    some bits of what PharaohsVizier said was is true..... here is my experience.

    i ordered from them once.... i didnt opt of the registered post the first time. waited like over 1month for the item and still didnt get it. couldnt file a dispute on paypal because it was over the grace period. but i managed to get hold of the support staff. they send me the item again without charge and with registered post. the item came within 1 week, the bonus is that the first item (that thought was lost in post came too) i ended up having 2 of the same items. (i know they didnt post 2 to me at the same time because of the timestamp on the package) so hush hush! =D

    what i brought was a r4. (yes its old. but its cheap and i want to test their service and i wanted a spare replacement along wif my collection)

    both r4 that came, was real. i asked them before buying it, and they didnt lie to be about it, unlike most sites.

    about the staff being shadier? im not sure about that... they seems ok. the support is great, quick responce unlike DX (dx tickets sometimes take up to 3-4 days to be solved) but with focalprice... u do have to know wot their working hours is tho. they opperate in Hong Kong. so u have to work out when they actually start work (around 10-11am GMT+8)

    refunds? hmmm i have to try that one first.

    Their deals are good.
    I can agree with the unpredictable shipping here. It's taken anywhere from 5 days (rare) to 3 weeks for me.
    I would highly suggest not buying the games on there, but flashcards seem to be okay. Haven't bought one yet but I will soon.

    haha.... yeh i just tested them. asked them about acekard 2. they answer some.... but they dodge the question asking them if they are fake or not and if it has black pcb or blue pcb board. they dodge it by saying. our staff at the warehouse is not in at the moment. come back an hour later... an hour later... they will either answer me saying... they are still not in yet. or the online chat is disconnected.

    haha. i know what u mean about the games. personally i wont buy the games from them, since i been to Hong Kong and China. especially China, i see a lot of those fake nds games. the colour of the picture on the box/cart is faded. and the shell is badly made and without the serial number at the back. i wont recommend them for buying expensive stuff there too... but some of their stuff can match wif DX prices. which is great.

    I can tell you now they're about the same speed as Dealextreme, maybe processing is 1-2 days quicker, but it's basically the same.
