More about scam sorry dumb question
  1. the webside template is exactly the same with a different logos...i wouldn't trust them
  2. I would trust Ebay before I trust those sites, and I never buy computer stuff off Ebay.
  3. past experiences with Chinese websites are hit or miss

    some are scams
    some are legit
    some are legit but the customer service is absolutely horrible

    if u do go this route, make sure u use a credit card / not a debit card, but a credit card which provides some level of protection
  4. Wife of my friend ordered Tebow jersey from one of those Chinese site for her hubby's surprise gift. Ended up with childish cheap fake with bunch of Chinese characters on it. Better buy from eBay, or search for Newegg shell shocker.

    By the way, eBay is not that bad, if you deal with people of good reputation. Many people who are not a real merchant dump their extra stuffs there, like I do. Since I realized that people don't bid when no return is allowed, I now add that option, although nobody asked for it.
