    Have any of you guys ordered from DealExtreme before? I want to order from them myself (due to the low cost, free shipping, and they have a stylus I really want but only they have). I guess waiting 3 weeks would not be a deal breaker for me. I just want to make sure that I will actually receive what I order.

    they have pretty good service, cept once in awhile they'll get orders mixed up and stock sold out
    but you can also read the reviews on dealextreme.
    its at the bottom (when your looking at the item)

    Yeah I was looking there and at resellerratings.com

    I'm not sure how much I trust resellerratings just because it was pretty much all people mad that their free shipping took a few weeks. However, there were stories about them saying they were out of stock or something and they would give them a "free gift" instead. I don't think this could happen with the 3-in-1 because it is so popular they would keep it in stock.

    If you want a dealer you don't have to worry about, I recommend realhotstuff.com. It will cost about $30 shipped, but you will get it very quickly, and if there is a problem with it you won't have to ship it back to Hong Kong.

    Use the coupon code SAVE5 to get 5% off the price of the cart.

    Dude, there is another guy on the Cyclo forums who has been waiting for 12 days for his EZ 3 in 1 from dealextreme. I ordered my ez 3 in 1 from realhotstuff on wednesday, and got it just now in the mail. I did pay for 2 day shipping, but I still cant believe they processed it and everything in 2 days exactly! Unless you like waiting, I wouldnt do dealextreme

    my 3-in-1 cost me 19 bucks from DX. i got it in about 10 days. they do charge you 1 cent for a processing fee, but the shipping is free. it took them about 5 days to go from order to packaging and then it shipped out. anywhere else would have cost me between 28-45 depending on what method of shipping i chose. DX does a slew of business and they are reliable.

    DealExtreme isn't a bad site to shop, though you get what you pay for. Since shipping is free, it takes a while. It can take around 10-15 days before you get what you bought. I bought my EZ 3 in 1 from DX and got it within 10 days and I'm happy with it. If your in a hurry though, I suggest trying another site, else DX isn't that bad. Oh and you'll probily never use the rumble feature, its noisy as hell, though comparable to the official nintendo rumble pack.

    expect 2 to 4 weeks from the time you order to the time you get it at your front door depending on where you live in the world.

    i recieved my 3in1 from dealextreme a few days ago.
    about the rumble: it might be noisy but it beats the m3 rumble-ram rumble feature(especially with the 3 different rumble strengths)

    you will have to wait quite some time, but for their price it's not such a big problem.

    just 1 advice with the 3in1:
    make sure you charge it's battery(done by charging the DS while it's turned on with the 3in1 inserted)
    if you don't it's not recognised.

    also, the DS won't see it as an option pack.
    if any, it will show as a "gba game" (if you have a rom loaded in NOR)

    any reason why?
    there are plenty of people who would send it back if they'd notice it not working, thinking it's broken.
    especially if it's not showing up in the DS menu.

    and from own experience i know it isn't recognised by gba exploader when the battery is empty.

    it's info that could prevent a lot of trouble, and isn't written on the box(it comes without a manual or anything)
