GPD Win Buyers Guide
« on: November 23, 2016, 08:11:54 pm »
Please vote for the company you've purchased from if you feel like you had a good experience. However, if you didn't have a good experience with a company please don't vote for that company because it will skew the results incorrectly.

Please DO leave a comment with your experiences (good or bad) because that really helps! :D

Due to the simple nature of this poll, it's easy to simply look at the results and determine that there's only one place worth purchasing a GPD Win from (which definitely isn't the case). I've heard a lot of postive things about both Belchine and MiComputer through users comments, but you'd never know that based on the poll results.

Thanks again, everyone, for posting up to share your experiences!

Belchine : I'm from France, and I bought him a Minix and the GPD Win, everything works flawlessly, and the SAV is really good. Really trust worthy reseller.

To me, EvilDragon service is really top notch, can't really talk about others, but he already fixed a Pandora I broke for free way after the end of the warranty... He's more expensive but make sure you take taxes in account, his prices are displayed with VAT already in and the VAT is deducted if you are from somewhere else in the world... I can't talk about Belchine but whatever you choose, given the chance to get a dude avoid the cheapest oversea sellers...

Thanks again for all of your detailed comments and also for voting! :D I've added Belchine and EvilDragon to the poll now to better round out the best place to purchase from. The editing options for this poll are very limited, so I did the best I could.

Please keep the votes coming! Thanks! :D

I bought mine from Aliexpress on the 11th of November. It languished in "preship" until the 16th which is when it got sent off.

Now today (24th) it's showing as "despatched to overseas". I assume it's sitting somewhere at Heathrow waiting for the customs guys to slap an import duty on it. I probably won't see this little guy until next week.

Ah, gotcha. I was just in Dublin earlier this year. It's really beautiful there! :D Do you know if Micomputer ships to the US? If so, they're definitely looking like the best place to order based on the poll results.

Well, I emailed Micomupter, at the email address below, to inquire about shipping to the US, and they responded almost immediately! Definitely great service!

[email protected]

They said that shipping to my state (Connecticut) is 40? ($42.23 US), and they said delivery time is within six working days. Sounds good to me! :D

If you're also in the US, and want a shipping estimate, just email them with your zip code. :)

I've ordered a GPD Win from GearBest.  Now I've got to play the waiting game because GearBest support told me that they probably won't ship it before December 22 when the pre-sale ends. That means that it won't be delivered before New Year.  :(

Sorry to hear about your long wait. That's terrible. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll ship it sooner than that.

I've bought mine in GeekBuying, but I've got to be honest - I can't decide if I should recommend buying here GPD Win or not. On the one hand - my order was very delayed, but I don't know how they dealt with this issue later (I've encountered the least fortunate situation, when they've run out (very limited) first batch.

They've solved relatively quickly my issue with incorrect windows key. And usb charger included was definitely broken (started to "hiss" after 3-4 hours of charging), for which I've received 5$ refund (I accepted it and didn't argue about this, because I can easily buy good usb charger for this money in Poland, and at this moment I don't even need to, because I already have one good, suitable for all devices I'm using).

Basing only on my experience, except irritating delay of shipping my order, everything else went good. However, I've got no idea how they're dealing with shipping of orders at this moment (if there are still these delays or not).

Sorry to hear about your crazy experience, but thanks so much for taking the time to post up such a detailed review. This is the exact reason I wanted to start this poll in the first place. I wanted to make future buying experiences as smooth as possible. :D

As for me, I'm currently between MiComputer, EvilDragon or willgoo.com. From what I've seen so far, it looks like willgoo.com ships the easiest to the US.

Same here. I ordered on Nov 10th (the PREVIOUS pre-sale) when it said they would ship out Nov 21st and then they started a new pre-sale. They still haven't shipped it so guess I'll have to wait until next year as well..

I ordered it on November 7th. GearBest customer support told me that I should be patient because they want to ship out a good product. It isn't the first time that I ordered from GearBest so it doesn't really bother me having to wait a little longer than I expected.
