AliExpress
Hello dear vapers. Smiling

I've been waiting nearly 4 weeks for Gearbest to ship me a gold OBS Engine and today they finally tell me it's no longer available, even though it's been saying they have some units left. At the moment it still says 1 piece left. I replied to them saying I'm disappointed and will not use Gearbest again and to please refund me. Never had a problem with Fasttech. So the only place that seems to have a gold one is two sellers on AliExpress both advertising 'original'. Can I assume 'original' on there will be as genuine as the authentic items on FT? It also says 20 to 40 days delivery. Is it possible it might come sooner or are they really that slow?


Of these two gold OBS listings, shall I just go for the cheaper second link?

First one has 1 unit left, second link shows 20 left.

Are AliExpress no good? Thing is, I really want a brand new OBS Engine and only in gold and AliExpress is the only place that still has any.

I've probably got the spam on it's way then as I registered with them before I saw your posts. I don't mind spam tbh, I just want to know if it's safe to buy from them and what people's experience has generally been with delivery times.

RE: AliExpress
yep, they are safe enough , the biggest problem you may have, is finding a vendor who will only ship one , they are more of a vendors vendor, some want a minimum of 10-100 piece per order, but apart from that , yes they are trustworthy by my experience

That's good to hear Charlie, at least they're safe. I've added the gold one from my first link to the basket. He's only got one gold left anyway. I messaged the vendor asking him if he's definitely got that gold ready to ship and explained to him that I'd been let down by Gearbest. So just waiting to hear back.
