Avoid at all costs
Ordered some flashlights and batteries with expedited shipping. After 10 days I was told (when i opened a ticket) that packages didnt pass the security check because of batteries and were on their way back to DX. DX promised to reship them using regular post (no refund for change of shipping method promised) once they returned to DX.
Guess when they reshipped my items? 5 days? NO. 10 days? NO. Maybe 20 days? NOOOO!! Attention please - it took DX.com 49 days to reship after their own mistake.
But you willl never believe me when i'll tell you that DX.com reshipped via expedited post AGAIN, which doesnt allow batteries (new order #150109001082291656). 15 days have passed and DX still "waits for items to return".

Trojan in Android telephone
I'll just post my conversation with DX below:
(I paid $325 for the phone)
"In the beginning of the year a trojan popped up and started to make te phone slow and reboot out of itself. I tries many antivirus apps (Kasperski, Vipre, CM security) and they detect the trojan and its other programs but can not remove it. In desperation I rooted the phone, cleaned all memory and installed a fresh firmware image downloaded from geekbuying.com. However, after restarting the phone with the new image, installing vipre from google play and scanning the phone the virus pops up again. This virus comes with the original firmware and was dormant up until beginning of 2015. I never installed strange applications and I only use Google play to install apps. I do not trust this phone anymore because the security is breached and I do not find it acceptable to pay $325 for a phone that is useless after 6 months. How is Dealextreme going to solve this problem? Please do not blame the manifacturer because you are the seller. Screenshots of different android virus scanners are included in the rar file attached"
Response by DX.com:
"Sorry to hear that. But if the virus came with the original firmware, it should popped up at the beginning when you used the phone. So we're not responsible for this kind of problem."
My response 1:
"Not if the virus was intended to stay dormant until the end of 2014.
But I understand you are not willing to take responsibility. That’s OK.
This was our last communication and I will certainly not order anything from DX either"
Sorry the answer was given by our manager. You can contact us again if there are other problems.
Thank you for your support."
My response 2:
"What is this? The least thing you could do is investigate if other customers have the same problem. A release of a new firmware for the MP-9200 should solve the problem is not my intention to get money back, but the telephone can not be used anymore within 7 months of using it.In this fashion so called cheap phones from China are more expensive than buying a regular android phone in Europe. May I remind you of the fact that your forum is full of complaints about virusses in software and on original firmware discs. If this problem is not solved you leave me with no alternative than to give DX a negative review on every review site I can find in the USA, Europe and Australia. Yes, I feel cheated and am annoyed by your responses"
If there's serious problem with this product, our professional staff will investigate, and our supervisor will give instructions. We customer service receive no instructions now."
My final response:
So that I cannot use the phone within 7 months because of malicious software is not an issue!?If you do not solve the problem, just say that. I will take my losses and I will post this conversation thread on the review sites as promissed."
Anyone else get asked to provide photocopy of your CC,passport?
So I place an order from Canada, for some baofeng HAM radios.
Price was too good to be true (almost $36 USd / unit). Thought, "we'll" see. Never once during order did they warn me about their "verification Policy" After paying through PayPal (Am I ever glad I used them!!) I get an "email" allegedly from CS ("customer service" at dx.com. They want (and I'm not kidding - this is a direct cut-and-paste from the email):
"1.A screenshot of your paypal account page showing your PayPal address and the transaction details of the payment at DX.com.
2.If you paid by credit card through paypal, please provide a photocopy/screenshot of your credit card bill (Any previous purchase is acceptable) and a photocopy of your credit card. Both the bill and the credit card should clearly show the the first 6 digits and last 4 digits of your card number. To protect your personal information, please hide the CVV2 code. (Please refer to our sample picture).
3.A photocopy of one of the payer's ID card/ Passport/Driving license."
Gosh I really hope none of you actually gave these guys that info...
Did anyone else get emails like this?
WARNING! Do NOT provide your passport photocopy!! That is Illegal to hand that over to a foreign entity except customs/police!! I was lucky - got PayPal to kill the transaction and got my money back.
Avoid these guys like the plague.
I ordered a no name tablet from them, it took forever to get, screen was broken and unit would not power on. Contacted customer service, finally got approval to send it back AT MY COST that they said they would refund. OK, so I sent it back, 3 days it arrived, took another 3 weeks to get my refund on the product and another month of complaining to get my shipping back, had to take pics and submit each both times.
Then 3 mos after all was refunded I get this: Dear User,
Your recent review "Locked and broken screen, see comments", which contains SKU 305580 has been unapproved by our staff.
The reason is Dear customer, did you contact our CS? They can help you to solve this.
SO they would not approve a negative accurate review, go figure.
I did go to Walmart and bought an RCA tablet for less money, same size and features. DO NOT do business with these people no matter the product or price. DO NOT trust the reviews as they are all screened and negative ones not allowed!
