    Is this site trustable? Has anyone ever bought anything from them or can tell me if it is a trustable site?

    http://www.foundmy.com/

    Also, do you get a "your item has been shipped" email or do they just ship it without emailing you?

    I got my ds-x from them. Wasn't too bad, I got it and it came with a freebie. I've heard of some issues in the past 6 months, but can't remember exactly what it was, good or bad....

    I am going to do the same! The qoob pro is out of stock as is the XenoGC.

    I might buy my xenoGC off of eurasia.nu instead. Anyfeed back on them?

    The SX and DuoQ are in stock. Which are you buying?

    GOD DAMN IT!!!! I was going to buy a xenoGC from them today. Put it in my shopping cart last night. Felt tired, decided to order it tomorrow since it was late last night. I come there today and they are sold out. What are the fucking odds of this? I can't even begin to describe how shitty I feel right now.

    Odd, appears that they have restocked on the XenoGC modchip again. In one day? WTF? Was it a mistake that they wrote out of stock? Whatever, I am going to order from them but does anyone know more about them. I read some stuff and some of their reviews and it says the site is untrustworthy while some of them said they got their order in 5 days. I am skeptical. Anyone else got any experience with these guys?

    I tried ordering from them before Christmas. My order sat there doing nothing, emails went unanswered, and I had to issue a paypal refund claim to get my money back. Right when Paypal forced a refund, I received notification my item was ready to ship, then it was cancelled. Entire process took 3 weeks, not one explanation from them. I would buy elsewhere like www.modchipcentral.com or www.consolesource.com

    Thanks for the answer but I already bought from them last night. Since they were so cheap (maybe in more ways than one. lol) that even if I am ripped off it is still not that much. The xenoGC chip, along with 2 free mini DVDs and a GC screwdriver came for $26 after shipping costs. No other place I know has xenoGC chip at a reasonable price other than foundmy and Euroasia and their total would have came to $31 and I needed to buy at least 1 DVD to create a boot disc for it and they only come in packs so a $10 pack at the least and the total would be $41.

    PS: Did you get a "your item has been shipped" email? I haven't got one yet but I don't know whether they just ship it without emailing you or they actually tell you that it is shipped.

    Out of curiosity --

    Why post a question about buying GC modchips in the NDS forum?

    I didn't ask about GC modchips. I asked if the site was reliable and since it has DS carts it can be in this section and I would rather have it in the most active section.

    I placed my order and it just sat there until I made a claim and Paypal ruled in my favor, then it was changed to ready to ship, then cancelled. It never changed after placing the order until then. Hopefully you have a better experience!

    This site kind of reminds me of dealextreme. Great prices. Takes forever to ship. In all of their site reviews it says that all of them got their items but it took ages; just like dealextreme. Well, maybe I will have a better experience. So far, as predicted, no shipping confirmation. Might take awhile. Oh well.....

    mine took forever because of a delay from the actual cart manufacturer. I finally did get an email with a confirmation number, but the number didn't actually work through usps until I already had the product.

    Thanks for the comment. Ya, my confirmation number doesn't work either but I think it is because they haven't updated the mail yet. After all, it hasn't even been a full day since I got the shipping confirmation email. I'll give them a chance. So far, foundmy.com seems like a great place to me. "So far" being the key words.

    Hey me too! I ordered a xenoGC and mine arrived at about 3 days after it was shipped. Mine arrived with 2 free mini DVDs though. EXTREMELY happy with my order and choice. Why did you order a wire kit with it? xenoGC doesn't need relocating since it mounts perfectly onto the board.
