hmmm, never used them (I am not actually in Singapore yet, ...yet!), but just looking at their homepage, they are not that professional looking, although maybe not too bad. First observation is that the bunch of pictures on the home page are repeated so that they appear twice, is this to look like they have many more products than they do?

I am interested in getting a laptop sometime soon, so clicked the link they have for that, and it seems they have ONE laptop.

If you get no one that has used them, I would advise caution. There payment page does not allow for payment by credit card it seems. Personally, I would stop right there. At least with payment by credit card you have a chance to get your money refunded if the goods do not arrive.

It's ticking...... But it's a valid company with a brick & mortar presence as well. The OP is theoretically a student but we'll see. The clock's ticking..... :devil:

Assuming it's a legit question..

I took a look at that website and it's full of China made imitation product (of Nokia and Apple devices). I really think the photo of one device is indeed the iPod touch or iPhone - that's bordering to misrepresentation... But I can't say for sure ... :P

It's a well known phenomena here. There are a number of shops where you can buy counterfeit copies from China for cheap cheap. Most of 'em don't work too long or at all but all sales are final. We have a few of 'em floating around our office as well. He's posting from a local ISP but I think we scared him off as he's not been back and I haven't locked his account.














yet.
:P

There's a glitch in the backend scripting that causes some of the newbies to end up with Immortal and 16+million posts. It's been corrected in the past but for some reason it keeps reappearing. But creative advertising or any other sort of advertising don't get it!

I should have been more clear, I meant for fun, that he had been spamming the site with his shop details, yes it was obvious to see an error but not obvious to know why it happend. I was also thinking he may have been the original poster too. :) but not in a creative design way! It appeared to look like it had been hacked into, if that's at all possible and the immortal and posts was kind of a catch me if you can. I had not seen that before. however if you know its a glitch happening to all the newbies, they may eventually find it. I have noticed I cannot use my backbutton on this site, when before i always could, probably a fault with explorer 7
