    Love It! Great prices & apperantly free shipping & it's in the GBAtemp Network so it shouldn't spawn too much clones & the purchases help our site.

    I love it. The prices and product selection is great, and the site is very visually appealing as well (Unlike some online shops I've seen).

    Price wise it's a good DX alternative with much more information and better community integration with GBAtemp. Not to mention buying from here is supporting your site. Whether or not it'll be better than having sponsors is still a question (I mean, we do have ads anyway), but I think it's a great site regardless.

    I'd like to see how good shipping is eventually. Need to buy something from them eventually.

    Oh, I'm just constantly logged in and never bothered to see if the ads are still there. That's interesting.

    Ya sure TempShop can cover the cash that the affiliates and the ads did? I really didn't mind the ads or the affiliates thing. I'm no economics person though so I could just be babbling nonsense, as usual.

    I don't mind either, I'd prefer ads to worrying about the temp having hosting issues.

    I like the idea of a trusted shop for flash carts and other goods with good prices, and unite service and knowledge of the product and the user, but it could create a conflict of interests when it comes down to gbatemp reviews...

    I, and the rest of the staff, guarantee that reviews will not be biased because of ShopTemp, or for any other reason. Nothing has changed on that front.

    Basically, no one needs to skew the facts to sell products. Those products will prove themselves, and then ShopTemp will carry them if they have.

    Completely Agree, although, as I'm me, I just HAD to go for the third option!
