i had 1 transaction with dhgate last year.  I bought generic MP3 players, which was posted as 16 gig.  However, i later found out that they were hacked and that the real size is only 8 gig. 

Siguro sis, it depends on the seller.  I know they have f/b mechanisms there, like sa ebay.  Check the reputation of the seller before closing your deal.

never ever buy from DHGate... all they have are cheap imitations and the items are not what they advertise

if you want to buy China made items, better buy from Alibaba or AliExpress.  The sellers use Paypal as payment term and the buyer have Escrow for protection.

Bought twice with AliExpress and the items are as good as the photo.  I also received the packaged on the dot.

Hi everyone!

Just wanna know if anyone here has tried buying gadgets online. Ako kasi I tried once (DBGADGETS) and I wasn't happy with my purchase because the owner was not professional at all. Zero customer service. Now I'm planning to buy another gadget pero syempre sa ibang store na... Please share your experiences kung okay naman. :)

i just bought my digicam from DBgadgets last march 7. i called around 10am then around 2pm asa kin na yun digicam. ok naman naging transaction ko so far. pati yun gadget so far so good.

one thing lang about DBgadgets, they don't issue any receipt. if there's any problem daw, tumawag na lang ulit. medyo kinabahan din ako buti na lang ok yun sony cybershot na nabili ko.

dapat kasi sa Kimstore ako bibili. i called them first kaso wala sila available na color na gusto ko.

Hi guys,

Pa-bump naman. I want to buy sana a Samsung Galaxy S, pero since phased out na sya, online ko na lang makukuha. Mas mahal ang Kimstore by 1000, pero kung mas maayos naman yung warranty... What do you think?

I bought from Kimstore too, but they don't give discounts even if you buy a lot or bought several times from her na :-\

so true sissies, DBgadgets was sooo unfriendly..lalo pag katext mo yung owner parang ayaw nya pa magsales talk..kimstore is ok..as i know nagbibigay sila ng discount kahit 2 items na bibilhin mo basta dapat si kim kausap mo ;) i tried to talk to a guy kasi i don't know kung sino yun, yun nga di sya nagbibigay ng discount pero pag si kim magbibigay sya :) meron sya store sa st.francis square

Mga sis can you recommend an online store wherein nag aaccept sila ng credit card payments? Dati kasi meron yung kimstore sa st. Francis square eh. Pero now, cash nalang ang modes of payment nila. Though i must say, ok talaga kay kimstore bumili. Mabilis pa. Kahit same day transaction pwede.

i'm planning to buy an ipod touch from kimstore.  Apple warranty na daw so if there's anything wrong with the unit, derecho na sa powermac for repair/replacement?  Sure ba that i'll be accommodated kahit na di sa powermac yung O.R. ko?

^ i might get an ipod touch from kimstore also. Bought cams from her pero never pa an apple gadget, so ito rin iniisip ko if okay ba ipod touch sa kanya? I want to get the 4th gen for my mom sana.

Medyo di nga friendly sa dbgadgets. Kaya ko naman tiisin na unfriendly kaso magulo kausap. Sasabihin meron tapos wala pala.. Tsaka napansin ko, kapag yung kelangan mo sa kanya hindi masyadong expensive, di ka din nila masyado papansinin. hehe

I agree, very very unprofessional dbgadgets, from the owner himself pati sa uncle niya. Kimstore all the way! :)
