    Never heard of it

    If you need a flashcart, you can buy one from one of the shops that sponsor this site [​IMG]

    DX did say that they were looking for a way round the issue for not being able to list/sell flashcarts. Looks like they found it

    This site has nothing to do with DX "Copyright © 2007-2009 PriceAngels.com . All rights reserveds. " Price Angels have been around since 2007, and frankly there are cheaper places which still have the carts on their website like 0SZ.

    Not only that, their SKU's are different, have different photos and they carry different inventory from DX. Compare to VolumeRate, because they are run the same people as DX, all their SKU's are the same as DX's.

    Hm, maybe Price Angels is yet another sister site of DX?
    As Volumerate is too, 'Copyright 2007 Volume Rate'.
    Comparing to the Dealextreme Copyright 'Copyright 2007-2009 DX'.

    Price Angel and DX may be related somehow, or it could be a mere coincidence but Volume Rate and DX are definitely related :

    Notice the favicons of both DX and Volume Rate?

    It's open knowledge that VolumeRate is the wholesale version of DealExtreme. DealExtreme is quite open about this http://blog.dealextreme.com/post/2009/12/V...tisfaction.aspx

    PriceAngels, 0ShippingZone, DealExtreme, FocalPrice and all the rest all look similar. There's nothing whatsoever to suggest PriceAngels has anything to so with DealExtreme. It's pretty obvious PriceAngels ripped the layout of their site from DealExtreme, just like this site has http://www.dealperfect.com/default.html this is China after all.
