Looks like great site, shame we don't get more dollars to the pound nowadays.

Not always the cheapest there (look at PS3 game prices) but that site is pretty cool.

Also check monoprice.com They have some really great deals

Yeah,though most items are cheap.

Also if anyone is interested i found this neat little live currency converter for Deals Extreme,i automatically changes all the prices to your selected currency.

I've ordered a lot from DealExtreme, probably 300+ orders and they all came fine. Sometimes it takes a while for them to process your order (back in February after the Chinese New Year people were waiting like 3 weeks) but it seems to be okay now. I ordered 10 earphones from them at ~$1.50 each (and they aren't that bad either) about two weeks ago and they arrived yesterday. From what I've seen, they mark every package with around the same amount for customs, I've never paid duty on any order.

DX is great if you have a bit of patience. Shipping is free worldwide.

DX is very inconsistent when it comes to shipping. It will take at least 10 days for it to get to your house. Sometimes it takes them over a week just to ship it out! It all depends on what you order. I say it's a great value, but don't go there if you need something right away, or if you are looking for a quality product. I do not recommend buying any type of computer component from them, they are (for the most part) cheap (in quality), and could easily break in a matter of days.

EMS has a higher chance of being stopped in customs and it takes just as long for half the people on the DX forums anyway.

My guess is that it's fine, as long as it doesnt contain and Butane!
