    Hi,

    Last night I was going to order a R4 on bamboogaming and I saw they sell Wiikey,too. [​IMG]
    I heard there are many clone Wiikey which you can barely see the difference with the
    original [​IMG] and althought bamboogaming website says it is original but I just wanna make sure of it.
    Don't feel like paying 24 euro for a clone Wiikey. [​IMG]

    So my question is the Wiikey on Bamboogaming is an original or a clone?

    Im not entirely sure, though i do remember that they had an article that said they just realised they were selling wiikey clones, and everyone who bought it got it refunded for an original one. So i think there original.

    I've done business with Bamboogaming many times and I have never found them lying. They are really a good company.

    They're not on the official resellers list at www.wiikey.cn

    BUT

    that's probably because the list hasn't been updated. I've heard nothin' but good about bamboo gaming, so I would think they are official.

    yeah they should be original as v_p said. and his story is accurate.

    I trust the site as i've used them before (but not for wikey) and had no problems. (the shipping is a bit pricey though)

    I just ordered a wiikey for $40au which includes a tri-wing screwdriver and free shipping from acegamestore.com. I have bought from them in the past and can recommend them without any hesitation:)

    Hi ausbob06, I'm planning to do the same too, but acegamestore.com.au is not on the reseller list of www.wiikey.cn. Can you confirm if your Wiikey is not a clone ? Thanks

    I ordered an R4 from them recently and received it, but before that I ordered a WiiKey and it still has not arrived.

    Have you emailed their customer service about it?
    I've always gotten a quick response from them.

    they WERE on the official resellers list before the site went down!!! dunno if that helps, but they are (as was mentioned previously) highly reputable

    Where did you order your R4 and Wiikey? bamboogaming.com or the website that ausbob06 mentioned?
    If you ordered from bamboogaming.com, have you tried to contact them?

    My order (Wiikey and R4) has been shipped yesterday.
    Don't know how long it will take to get to me. [​IMG] (I chose registered mail)
