Recently, I placed 3 orders:

3/22/2012 2:31:12 PM3/22/2012 10:58:49 AM3/4/2012 5:33:14 PM

The second one was registered and showed up yesterday. The rest is still missing. At the same time, I placed an order with regular delivery at CNQ, arrived today. So, not impressed.

My orders took 20 days, but thats not so important (i mean it is, but thats for the most part out of dealers hands,it depends on the post)

I just want to say that Im having great experience with that seller.

Smart seller – and you get good buying experience.

He knoiws what he is selling.

He sourced me some difficult to find DIY parts using my photo (of thee parts).

etc etc, all good, kaido higly recommended from me… One of the best websites for budget flashlight, and even more cells and DIY parts.

I haven’t ordered from KD for a while, but I’ve ordered ~20 LEDs and several drivers from them and have found their products to be good quality, shipping times reasonable (3-4wks), prices decent and CS good. I just wished they had more tint options (their “warm white XM-L T6 LED” is somewhat suspicious).

These guys are fast!

Ordered a P60 XML drop in around the middle of September. Had it by end of the week.
Just done another 2 orders with them, payment processed and dispatched the same day.
Again, a little Gerbs waits for the mailman!

Only gripe is the website – the photos and the descriptions are bad

But the service! Its SPEEDY!

According to tracking – Kaidomain order has left Hong Kong and is on its way!
However, my DX package has not yet been sent.
Both packages ordered the same day, about an hour apart.

I placed an order with Kaidomain on November 28, and never heard another thing from them, my emails went unanswered. 4 weeks later, this morning (Dec. 26) I get an email telling me that my order shipped and I should go to "my account" for more information. I can't believe it took them 4 weeks to process and ship my order, NEVER AGAIN will I buy from this company. 

You're never too old to learn something stupid.

Why are many of their pictures distorted? They are horrible!

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

Yeah, I was wondering the same, their picture quality is subpar.

Ordered three 3AA-D adapters, received them today, one of them has corrosion, will contact their CS and see what they will offer…

My most recent order arrived yesterday about a month after ordering.  That should be acceptable from a Chinese vendor, but maybe I've already been spoiled by Lightscastle and Fasttech.

The low mode should be lower.

Shipping was fast, customer service seem to answer fast. Good selection of drivers and some DIY stuff.
I never got the lens I was supposed to get. Customer service is not good. They served me some lies too and had no faith in me as a customer. They did not have faith in my 4 different vernier calipers (2 digital) 3 rulers, or 2 flashlights…
I dont bother with the whole story. But I had lots of issues over a small low value product. I took pictures, made video and yet they did not manage to solve the simple issue of sending me a 28mm AR coated lens.. I just gave up on their customer customer service…

My first order with them. Ordered a KD 8×7135 V2 LED Driver 3040mA 17mm and a triple Nichia 219A 20 mm star with optics included. Order arrived two weeks later, rather fast. All is good except they forgot to pack the optics, without them I can’t finish my project light. Now their CS response to my inquiry about the optics is “you already received the order?”. I ordered with tracking so they could have checked themselves as it shows delivered. sigh I hope I get the optics soon.

I have ordered from them twice in the last 3 months.

Pro…
No problems with my orders. The parts are what I expected.

Good selection of drivers, reflectors, and lenses.

Con……

Shipping took 18 days first time, 29 day second order. Not as bad as some, but could be better.

Lots of items listed that throw you off when you think you found that part you need……….
SOLD OUT”………. |( well, guess not.
Why not put those all on the last page or together somewhere instead of scattered through-out the other listings?????

Recently ordered a KD Buckle, and it was here lightning fast – fastest delivery of any East Asian seller recently. Beautiful little light, too – excellent workmanship, and for $5.00!. It makes me laugh at claims that $25+ lights can’t be made excellent “because they’re so low-cost” (cough…Manker…cough)

They have a pretty large thumb down from me, registered and wanted to make my first order but I am constantly getting this error:

contacted them and they just sent me email where I should pay, yeah right, like I am just going to send money without any proof that i ordered anything.
Also, I was not able to find address book where I can store shipping addresses!

I’ve an order from 3/22 with the same status (Order Pending-waiting to be packed), but the recent PostNL tracking shows “Arrived at sorting center”, so the last Kaidomain status seems not to be always correct.

Hi friends,

I am sorry for the updated problem of our delivery status.

I guess your package that is contained battery and shipped by NL post. The delivery status will not update in the real time. We need to wait our logistic courier update the delivery status to us and our system will change automatically.

We would improve our delivery status and update the delivery status in the real time.

Please don’t be worried. If you have any question, you can leave me a message or send the email to sales@kaidomain.com for any further inquiry. We would help to solve our problem.

Best Regards

I’ve checked. Result is: There is no record on the subject item.

Looks like they forgot to send my package. They sent it now after a month only because I sent them email asking about it. In my account order was marked as sent.
