Best place to buy this thing
« on: November 11, 2016, 10:48:49 am »
Hey guys,

What's the best place to buy this thing for someone living in the UK?

I'm looking at Aliexpress which has a sale on right now and can get the device for $314. But then microcomputer.eu has it for 349EUR which i'm assuming also covers VAT.

And not to mention, it seems all of these sites have a delivery delay of several weeks!

Where's the best place to get this as quickly as possible and for the best price?  ;D

microcomputer.eu 's price includes VAT. Add delivery costs to that

Order placed on the 2nd-Nov. Delivery to Ireland, arrived yesterday 10th-Nov. Paid 375,98? inc. delivery

It's the second GPD device I buy from them. No complains so far.

I took the gamble and got mine through geekbuying via airmail.
Took about a week to come (mine was last of the previous batch of preorder).
Mine is working pretty great.
Only cost me ?270 (It was 315 dollars with a voucher)

Damn, I should have bought it via Ali express then. I wanted to pre-pay the VAT and custom charges, but it looks like micomputer won't ship until the end of the month.

I should cancel and try again with Ali.

Edit: Score! They let me cancel! Going to buy from Ali.

I am in the USA and have been waiting for a reseller here to get some GPD Win in stock. Currently US Amazon only has one reseller selling at $460!!   I have a $140 credit on my Amazon account and I've been hoping the prices become more reasonable or at least somebody will offer Prime shipping so in case anything goes wrong with the unit I don't have to ship back to China. I am going to hold out until at least Black Friday before I make an order in case there are some good deals.

$460 for a $300 device is huge markup :(   Especially since their price continues to increase while other resellers are having 11/11 sales.

Once the issues are panned out, I will order my stock.  I'm not placing them on the e-cig site, so I will get a new site up once the order is in.  We will be shipping from Orlando Florida, and will ship to US, Canada, Mexico and UK.

I'm sorry.  Our projected price is $359, right now.  I have to pay for import, so it will be a little higher than China.

Will you have an Amazon storefront or something independent?

Right now the plan is to create a new site.  I don't want to use my current site, since it specializes in e-cig sales.  I don't want to confuse my existing customer base by adding other electronics.

I won't do Amazon.  I may consider an eBay store, just for the Paypal convenience.

I'm out.  I'm pulling my GPD reseller status at this point.  I can't, as a small retailer, take on this device.
