    Default AliExpress?

    Anyone ordered from this website before? It's full of stuff from China mostly. Some are cheap, some are fake, and some are seemingly good deals. I placed an order few days ago for some wires that's marked 98% off for $1.38. Well, I know it is worth more than $100 fake or not. So, I placed the order just to give it a try and there isn't much for me to lose. Now, the seller is saying they made a mistake on the discount and wants me to either cancel my order or pay him $120 more.

    What item is it for as I'd be interested to see if it's still listed?

    I do have an account with them, but never pulled the trigger on anything.

    I might give it a try and see if I get the same answer, :) but I would not pay him an additional $120.

    Sites like this one are kind of like going to the casino.

    A quick look at the reviews, looks like buys are batting less than 50% success getting what they
    order, if anything at all. I don't care how cheap they list it, I wouldn't order from aliexpress.

    Anything audio, comes from either AS, Amazon, or the like.
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!
