was too curious

obviously if you have a negative experience select the 4th also if you don't hunt/eat dinos xD

...and pls share it, is easy for DD competitors to just select the 4th

9/10 no problems, the con is somewhat slow delivery but you know...

 

Problems with batteries, they were sending un-protected when protected were purchased.

They covered wrong items.

CC can be tricky, recommending to use only PP claim if needed.

 

 

Will probably buy again, waiting for offers though...

About 30 orders so far. Haven't had any real problems.

(Well.. I got "some" unprotected real Trustfires for my DRY, but DD sent me also as many real protected ones - Can't complain about that!)

Works for me, but: You will get great deals from them, if (and only if) you know what you are doing! Buyer beware!

I have received 6 or more shipments from DD without tracking and only 1 not received (but refunded)

Meanwhile, FYI I also have received a shipping confirmation and a Pre-Ship photo of the Klarus P2A I ordered in January (Yeahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

This post/thread "may" contain referrals, a little contribution I "earn" in form of points ONLY if you buy the item. The purpose is to redeem items using the points and then making reviews of them in the forums to shar

A few good buys with coupon codes before the recent MASSIVE price increases. Will wait for competitive prices before ordering.

My only purchase was the $5 WF502b/Cell/Charger combo. I received my order in a reasonable amount of time, but would probably only buy from them again if there was a super-deal or group buy on an item I wanted and was already planning to purchase.

I have only bought from them a couple of times but what really pissed me off about DD is their web site.  

Every time I go there to look at a light I just get started reading and the stupid screen starts moving downward til it gets to the bottom and I have to look at some clothing items and then back up again and I have to wait for the whole thing to finish before I can continue reading.

Hate it too. Specially at work where our internet is sooooo slow. I won't even go to DD from work anymore.

Ahhh the joys of DD today. Ordered a reltively cheap 504B silver XM-L 5 mode for 14usd (before discounts points whatnot) And recieved the much disliked 3 mode (High, something and strobe). The rest is okay. Like someone wrote before why are flashing modes so popular in china anyway?

3 mode, crude soldered 16!mm driver (weird) and poorly insulated reflector (emitter contacts touching the reflector). On the positive side a pretty nice tint XM-L, well centered and even decently glued! Visually perfect 504B silver ultrafire clone p60 host.

Must be milleniums of fireworks making legacy...

i think the Dinodirect Rating sums most of it up.

I buy when there is a good deal, not when I need something on time.
And its always a kind of gambling, getting what you want, trusting their description etc..

And without Summer being here, I would have a second thought on ordering again.
He\She has helped me mostly in the past.

Purchased an in stock knife of DD, waiting for shipping, out of stock, then offers me DD credit.  Not big on having to jump through hoops when I purchase an in stock item and then have to wait on live chat, send a complaint via email, then receive an phone call coaxing me to go for the credit.  I got the full amount refunded to my paypal account within a day of the phone call, but too much work on the consumer end in my opinion.

My vote will depend on how they will handle my current problem with them. They sent the wrong item and I am on the verge of filing paypal dispute.

I guess most of you know about the time it takes from dx to ship your order.

So, here is mine:

Ordered on 26/12 and on 22/01 without any email of something like that,the order was in the same status.

I canceled the order.

12 days later,  i checked to see if i had a refund or something like that. NOTHNG!!!

I made a dispute in paypal, wrote my comments and waited for DX reply.THEY NEVER REPLIED!!!

So, after 10 days of no reply from them, i filled a claim to paypal.

Now, i got a refund from paypal. Paypal standed up to my expectations. Thanks!

 

I think that the huge sales of DX has made them really arrogant with their customer service. So, before checking the best price, check to find a good dealer too!!!

ergotelis, dis is de DD thread

Ooops, sorry! That was my fault, I moved his post into the wrong thread.
