Likewise to FlexakaMal, thanks!  Please let us know how it goes.  

By the way, I should set clear that none of these "Budget Dealer Experiences" ratings are to be taken as endorsements or recommendations of any of these companies.  A very small number of this sort of company, especially the newer lesser-known gigs, could be truly awful companies or even scams.  So please use good common sense before ordering, I'd feel really bad if I posted one of these links and then later somebody else ended up being ripped off.

 

Edit: In the case of Everybuying.com, you very well could get ripped off.  Avoid.

I made two orders at www.everbuying.com, and I was very satisfied with both of them. They have a good price, and all the items were in stock, so there was no delay in shipping.

Welcome Fanny1989.  Thanks for the info.  Can you tell me what the turn around time was from when you ordered until your order was shipped?

This is really the question with a budget retailer isn't it?  DX has some amazing products, an amazing selection, and usually the best prices.... but their business processes are dreadfully slow and error-prone.  So an alternative company could really distinguish itself by shipping promptly and professionally.

Mr Admin, that really is what we're all looking for...if our stuff gets in the mail within a more reasonable amount time, the wait becomes much more bearable

I received them in  four to seven days.when i open the box,I'm so glad that they  were what i need.

Thanks for the update.  That is encouraging.  If I can get my orders shipped out and its way to me within 4 days, I'd be a happy camper.  Looks like I'll have to give them a try.

Interesting, the price for the Skyray S-R5 body is raised from $9.29 to $11.44

Anyway, although not budget, but here is another good deal:

I have bought 3 lights from them.

Placed my order 06/06/2010. It still reads Stock up.

Not to sure when they will come but will report back if they do not arrive.

This seems to be a new company.

I hope they do deliver.

Please let us know if / when your lights finally ship, I'd like to know if this company is totally legitimate or not.  Thanks!

Would it surprise anyone if many of these HK online stores were just fronts for one ( or two ) stores ?

Compare :

http://everbuying.com/Wholesale-Flashlights-c-726.html?odr=gp

and

http://www.focalprice.com/goodsort_46_1_p.html .

Find any real diff ? Except minor diffs in prices, even the pics look the same.

Yup, I get the same impression.  Oh well, as long as they are legitimate.

It could be their version of an online store chain.  Same company but with several online stores with different names.  I would not be surprised if that was the case. Cash

Anyway, I'm not complaining. If it wasn't for them I would never have got a decent LED FL, or a Kanen KM-92 earphone, or a SanRenMu 710 foldable knife.

Al, fishinfool,


I think you guys are a lot less cynical than I am.Wink
Or perhaps you just choose to believe the best in people, an admirable quality.
