This is a useful post, I've got past experience with dealextreme for all sorts of orders. Their lead time is a bit slow, but they deliver for free, so it's not something to complain about!

I purchased mine off Ebay, got to love those random 15% off paypal coupons the send out rarely.

I agree DX is great but slow to actual ship some items as they source them only after your place your order. They are also very easy to get a replacement items from and they have a USA RMA address out of Florida(miami I think)

Thinkgeek is great for returns also and there customer service is top notch but you pay for it.

GBAX is all good no complaints though Ive not ordered from them in years.

One Final place I would include is
http://www.superufo.com/product_html/Cool_Stuff_Micro_Game_Station_Dingoo_A320_Black.html

They are an awesome website good prices and fast shipping

I bought mine from ThinkGeek.com. I know.... I know..... They're overpriced compared to some other places, but I like the peace of mind associated with dealing with an American company...plus I got next day shipping on my order. It's been out for delivery all day and should be at home waiting for me after work.  :)

For those who occasionally leave their homes ;): Atatbo Trading Co., shop 15, ground floor, Golden Shopping Centre, Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong. That's where I picked up one for me and a friend of mine last month, HKD 590 each.

The bad news is that mine (why not his? :)) is semi-broken: The backlight brightness varies. After opening it up, it stopped working altogether, so I ordered a new one from a Chinese retailer on eBay. A couple of days later, I felt the strange urge to try turning my broken Dingoo on again, without really expecting anything, and, strangely enough, it worked. Just like that, as if nothing had ever happened. Still has the backlight problem, though. :-\

(And the new one is still in the mail.)

That'd be a hell of a trip for me. ;D

I got mine from dingoo888.co.uk because I needed (wanted) my Dingoo in a rush, since I was going away and I didn't mind paying a bit more than DealExtreme for fast delivery. The customer service was very friendly and I got my Dingoo the very next day!

If you are in Canada, check out this seller:  www.gocybershop.ca
I bought an A320from them, which broke down - but they replaced the Dingoo immediately.
Thank you!

My Dingoo from Dealextreme took 6 days to post and lass than 7 to arrive. I've heard people waiting longer, but I would recommend them as they are the cheapest around and I've never had any problems.

GoCyberShop is also overpriced and, from my experience, rather shady.

A friend paid to have them install a "Messiah" chip for his PS2 a while back, and they actually installed a (much cheaper) "Magic2" chip. He realized something was up when Splinter Cell kept freezing on him, a game which had known issues with the Magic chip, but worked fine on Messiah. They eventually put it right, but only after my friend threatened to open the system up and check the chip himself. I have a feeling this wasn't the first time this (profitable) "mistake" was made either.

I'd stick with one of the official resellers if I were you, you'll get a better deal at least. Just my two cents worth.
