Well for me I can not say but I have gotten the best service from them, I don't annoy them or uptight sure the first time I ordered I am gonna be skeptical but it was my frist time ordering from a Chinese company and had a good experience, yes I've researched the reviews for dozens of Chinese companies and this one stood out I think it was 2009 that I first bought from them ofcourse I knew it will take awhile to arrive but I am patient not going nowhere and to test drive it I didn't jump at 100 just at once but I spent like 2.99 maybe and yah and then I continued from there than the second time didn't put big bucks either took awhile got it so I bought 3-4 times from them I think and I've introduced it to a friend who bought an android phone and works great according to him and he is thrilled I don't see any issues with them, I do search online but I am suspicious that the bad reviews could also come from competing companies who bash each other just to score a point and found that many bad reviews are not really reliable because you don't know if its the same person doing it over and over multiple times or just competitors.  I understand some are real and can't speak for anyone's experience but I always been patient, calm and nice to them and they responded quite nicely their customer service is very friendly situated they have refunded me the full price for a mistake order.  So for me I have no issues and I also got an android phone and its just being dispatched now so I will let you know but there facebook page has over 148 000 and I am surprised when I learned about them they had 6 000 so in about a year that many fans it's popularity is growing and I find the unhappy always give the reviews, the happy ones and satisfied rarely do so the percentage of happy customers must surpass the unhappy reviews I will never know if their customers or just employees bashing or how many or what happened.  To speak with Chinese you also need to be simple concise and clear in short like what is you need and if your rude trust me they get aggregated pretty quickly and really you want a good service respect the one your buying from I frankly find many rude people but I know they been doing good and wish more people with positive expeirences share theirs because mostly negative showup.  My two cents

Thanks raccoon city, good to be around here and I've checked my status today although it's Sunday Canada post says its in the country I guess specifically this is what it said "

2012/06/0318:01 International item mailed in origin country" 

assuming that means its in the country hopefully thats what it means and customs won't hold it long hopefully

DD of late seems to be much better than a few months ago. I was almost done with them but I had some Dino points and made one last order. It arrived so fast that I made a few more small orders. They seem to be good right now and I am thinking about placing an order for a SkyRay soon.

Summer is great help, but others are bunch of folks I wouldnt trust.

Can someone please tell me how to check me Dino order to see a picture of what shipped?

Sorry if this is a really stupid question, I just cant figure it out.

In my email:
_Your order xxxxxx-DD has been shipped out. The following picture is a snapshot of the items you bought. Click bottom “F” below to see more detailed product & package pictures, which will be displayed automatically on your Facebook wall. $2 cash coupon will be sent to your account by every new transaction generated by your link. Hurry up! _

I dont see any picture/snapshot attached to the email…I use Gmail and I dont think it blocked anything.

In my DD account:
When I click on my order page and click on the specific order number it shows me a product image from the website, nothing that was packaged just for my order.

So can someone pls tell me how to check? (Also I dont have a FaceBook so I cant check there.)

you have to login to your Facebook account first.

Okay, no problem, I just thought I was missing something. For a while I did not know how to contact chat, its not obvious at first.

I dont have a Facebook so I cant sign on so I will just wait.

I ordered some Fenix lights where I had to select the color choices ranked, so I wanted to see what color they shipped to me. Otherwise its not that important that I see.

Thanks.

It depends on what kind of spam you get. I use Gmail and it reads your search history and email words to send you spam and adverts.

I was car shopping, so I get car spam, then its raining out and I see a lightning protection banner. Google and some websites have a location based ad sense from your IP.

Its pretty creepy. So I dont know for sure if DD sold anything unless you get postal mail or phone calls. Regular email could be anyone.

So they get the label removed and then screw us over on the Uf2100 (take our money and then won’t ship) and thats Ok? I gave them another go (at your suggestion) and expect them to ship. I feel an “agenthex” rant coming.

I have’nt bought from DD since I said I wouldn’t buy from them unless they change. When I see that 90% of the guys here say good things about them then maybe I’ll give them another try. But I don’t see it happening when people are still complaining about their lousy service or how they screwed up their order.

Based on what Erik said on his 2nd order he was let down, so I’m happy to avoid them.
