Is Aliexpress safe? GPD G58 in stock there!
« on: September 30, 2014, 03:27:18 am »
I know Aliexpress is like ebay where sellers post listing and I wanna buy a GPD G58 from GPD themselves they have a store there but is it safe also how fast is regular shipping? Singapore shipping I believe it's called.

It's impossible to say whether Aliexpress is safe/trustworthy, as it's not one store but thousands of stores.
Do you have a specific link?

C'mon man, stop making multiple threads about the same thing.

Anyway, regarding Aliexpress, it's important to look at the seller's rating and feedback.
There are many scammers on that site.

They don't allow PayPal, but it's still safe to pay via credit card. The seller doesn't get your money until you confirm the item has arrived... Or something like that. And I believe ever item gets a tracking number.

Lol sorry I was going to delete the other one and don't worry This is my last post about this. Thank you for the info guys! I think geekbuying might be getting it back soon too but I've heard freaky stories about them. Only intriguing thing about them is that their shipping time isn't as long as aliexpress. 15-60 days for delivery from Singapore post what the lol then again it is coming from all the way across the world to come to the USA but makes me wonder how willgoo and geekbuying can give smaller ranges of days with their least costing shipping.

Also in terms of the seller it's GPD themselves so it should be reliable.

Well, I've had things from AliExpress arrive in just over a week, but I've also had stuff arrive in over a month.
You've also got to take into account the processing time that's listed(in the cart or checkout area I think).

There are also other shipping options usually listed... I know my tablet had an option to get it shipped DHL for an extra $10. Took 3 days. I'm impatient :D

Aliexpress is like ebay. Remember just one thing: don't press the received button before you check the item is ok. A friend of mine couldn't complain about an item (opem case) because of that.

Picking mail - sometimes one is faster then the other.

Thank you guys! I'm gonna buy it I just have to use the regular shipping which says Singapore post, it's weird bc that shipping is $35 but bc the item is listed $68 it evens out it's original price of $99 plus standard shipping, I would choose the faster ones even the one just one level above the is $65 which would make the GPD full price $135 which is crazy that's way above what It went for originally lol. I'll just go with Singapore post I guess. It says processing time 15 days what can this mean.

Why what's wrong with geekbuying ? I just spent $542 with them and I'm confident that nothing will go wrong

Processing time is the time from when you place your order to when they ship the item. Remember, this could be business days, not calendar days; so expect it to ship in about 3 weeks :)

The most common complaint with Aliexpress is shipping time. Unless you spring for DHL, expect to wait a month for your item.

Geekbuying doesn't have stock, and probably never will, because this device is discontinued.

Hey everyone quick question I know the stock firmware for the GpD G58 doesn't have bluetooth but it says something about that the custom firmware adds bluetooth dongle support is this true? I see so many videos of this device being played via hdmi but I'm guessing the user must have had some kind gamepad to do this.

So short question does the GPD G58 have wireless gamepad support????? Bluetooth or other methods???

No BT in custom roms, I don't know where you read that. About gamepads, you can connect usb gamepad via OTG cable.

So in a word there's no way to use Wireless gamepad on this device at all?


No bluetooth whatsoever? I read in Deen0xs review that he was using a wireless gamepad to play while having the device connected via hdmi now I'm confused lol.

Where is the confussion? There are wireless gamepads that are connected via USB. Wireless doesn't necessarily mean Bluetooth
