    Actually, they're what the market is willing to pay.

    I can attest to their legitimacy as well. All of their miscellaneous stock makes it fun to shop around.

    I make an order at DealExtreme about once every month. They are excellent, just don't order things for a deadline.

    I've placed several orders over the past year (Wii accesories, flashcard, red and green lasers, etc.) and they delivered them in about 2 weeks.
    It's free shipping so the longer deliverytime doesn't really bother me.

    I've used DX on several occasions (literally) and I've never had to wait more than 9 days for an item to arrive.

    was thinking that too when i saw the prices.. $3.85 for a replacement touchscreen!

    also getting me a ds-one and some other goodies.. the prices really make it guilt-free for random useless shit

    some items score a free ems delivery along with the rest of shipment

    i think the shipping may be slow cos they don't actually have the flashcarts on-hand

    DX IS legit, it's an awesome site! Shipping is just really slow, but for that price it's still awesome!

    Shipping is slow because they ship from Hong Kong. Also they take one day to "obtain the stock from their suppliers" so in some cases I'm sure they are getting the merchandise from somewhere else.

    They will even partially ship orders if some of your order is ready and the rest isn't. Plus you can somewhat track RA hong kong tracking numbers with USPS.

    -slow S&H sometimes (not for me, I got my SCD1 in 9 days)

    I'd buy from them. You do want $10 off or fast S&H?

    yup, it's legit with great prices. Yes, they do take a bit longer, but if you already own a flashcart it isn't really that agonizing. I got a DSTT last week (which I'll be giving to my gf) and just ordered an Edge DS (yes, I am cheap).
