DealExtreme – Order Fulfillment Progress

So I guess DealExtreme hasn’t forgotten about me after all.  I just received an e-mail from them titled Order Fulfilment Progress and it states that they are still working on getting my order sent out.

DealExtreme – 2 Month Delivery (Yikes!)

Back on Oct 1st I discussed ordering from DealExtreme for the first time.  I had never ordered from them before but the price was right (stupid cheap) and shipping was free.

Well, late last week, I finally received a small envelope labelled Hong Kong Airmail.

For those of you paying attention, if I am only now receiving my order, that means it took almost 2 months for it to be delivered.  WTFIUWT?

Not only that, but they didn’t send the PS3 remote; the whole reason I made the order in the first place.

dealextreme – Crazy Cheap, Straight from HK

Ever heard of dealextreme?  Ya, most people haven’t.

A co-worker told me about them a while ago, but I never actually dealt with them until today.

I was looking for a PS3 infrared remote control.

Really cheap units go for as little as $5 shipped on eBay, but I wanted one with a PS/Home button.

Eventually I came across a post on AVSForum from a member who purchased this one.

It appears to meet my needs so I decided to go for it.  I ended up buying a couple of  other cables and adapters at the same time because the prices are just so unbelievably low.  Plus shipping is free!

I guess we will have to see.  Maybe the prices are justified and the stuff is total crap.  Only one way to find out.  😀
