I agree.  White is dead. >:D  That mouse has some decent customer feedback.  Mainly on it's comfortable size and shape with people with smaller hands and reasonable performance.  And the price is reasonable too.

GeekBuying is the cheapest because it comes from China. How reputable is that? China-made products are not exactly known for quality and reliability.

Well, shipping to and from China these days is not great to say the least.  Expect long delays and higher then normal shipping costs.

China-made products are not exactly known for quality and reliability.

Grant it.  Some things made, assembled and generally sold to the Chinese public are commonly not up to our standard.  I'll give you that.  But did you ever think about where your cell phone processor, CPU processor, GPU processor and memory modules come from?  As well as most, if not all of your cars electronic parts come from?  If you guessed China, you would be correct.  Look up TSMC foundries.

I know some things are that are necessary but there are other items where they have been caught using poisonous parts just to save cost. I will try to find the link that CBC Marketplace (Canadian) did on jewelry.

 You don't have to buy from that seller, they are selling the same product, just the cheapest price I spotted.

I know of a number of sites out there that sell some pretty shady stuff.  Like aliexpress and wish for example.  Sure, you will find incredible bargains.  But where very cheap prices popup for stuff that normally should cost much more, it's buyer beware should be common sense.

Ah ya Aliexpress is based in China as far as I know and am pretty sure Wish is as well. The site itself is not crooked but there are a lot of crooked sellers on those sites.

If the deal seems to good to be true, it most likely is.  As I said, it's buyer beware.

I have used Wish before I heard it was not that reliable. Depending on what you order it seemed okay but then toward the end of my using them, I noticed some items would not show up or were just utter crap quality. I would submit if a product was not as good as advertised and get my money back but toward the end (6 months ago maybe?) Wish changed their policy and it is harder to get your money back. Now it is more like "you get scammed - oh well:  Buyer Beware."

It's messed up that sites like that would implement policy changes to prevent buyers from returning the merchandise and getting a refund.  When really, they should be enforcing more stringent rules on the quality of merchandise they allow on sites like wish.  Eh.  But what do I know?  I'm just another fed-up consumer.....

Most of it is from China and they are very known on using cheap cheap cheap and trying to sell as high quality and scamming people.

 Wish is pretty well known as scammers playground at least as far as video cards go. but when your supposed to get a new GTX 1060 6gb($300-400) for $87 and you don't see a scam coming. I mean really?   :duh: :duh: :duh:
 Plenty of you tubers on purpose buy these scams to show you what the scammers are sending out and how to spot a fake.

Oh ya it is WELL known you do NOT buy electronics from places like WISH lol. Remember I bought a USB stick from them that said it was a Gb of space or something larger when it wasn't and I brought it to your place to find out the real size?
