Thanks for the comprehensive, annotated, rated list Image

There are now almost as many threads on RFD about DX and DX clones as there are DX clones out there. I sure hope I can find yours when I need it ;)

priceangels.com is usually faster than focal price but little more expensive.....my experience with priceangels 2-3 weeks while focalprice is like at least 4 weeks (all times include weekends and holidays)

Shipping times (my experience)

priceangels fastest
buyincoins and everbuying average
focalprice slowest

Thanks for the list, the only problem I will have now is that I will take too much time to comparison shop. ;)

Love this thread!

You should add some Yes/No column for the types of items sold. Most all the stores sell electronic type items, but for example some also sell clothing

I thought of that, having some sort of legend. (eg: E - Electronics, C - Clothing, P - Cell phones), but then I saw a squirrel with something shiny and never quite got started on it. I'll try and do it at some point.

No rush, it's already great!

I find buyincoins to be really good. Prices are usually much cheaper than DX and you can use coupons on top of that.
