More sillyness from BG CS. They now say the manufacturer claims it can be adjusted. Well yes, with a hammer. The focus is adjustable but it's not a focus issue - it's misaligned optics. I'm not sure their English is even good enough to actually understand the problem. Poor English skills is the most common problem with Chinese CS agents.

I'm not going to waste more time over a cheap pair of binoculars. I get a lot of cheap items from BG and can live with the occasional dud. Based on my recent experience I won't be ordering anything of value though as I don't have any confidence in their CS dealing with it if something goes wrong. I also told a couple of friends who are shopping for quads to buy them from DX so it's BG's loss. Ho hum.....

Banggood say that all items are checked by their staff before shipment but they are offering to refund half the value of the binoculars which I have accepted. Not the outcome I had hoped for but it's better than nothing.

I placed an order and shipping address was wrong. Before shipment I contacted them to send to good address which they agree to do. Then I got automatic email that it is shipped (wrong address) and now for 2 days I just can't get one simple answer from them:

To which address my items are shipped? I know their english is bad, mine not also perfect but just cant understand that they can't tell me where they sent my 2 orders (out of many).

I hope everything will be fine, if I get everything even after a month I will be happy to continue buying but if I do not get then I will invest 10 times more then I spent on their site just to hire indians to write negative reviews about them! I hate beeing cheated!
YOUR SITUATION IS EXACTLY LIKE MINE...i feel your pain. GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK OR CONFUCIUS WITH GET YOU WITH KARMA...AND YOU KNOW WHAT KARMA IS... ..

Well here we go AGAIN. I really should have learnt my lesson. But the last 20 orders from Banggood arrived within 10 days to NZ. So I put in a big amount of orders -$5000US. WHAT A MISTAKE. The first 26 orders arrive within 10 days. Then nothing, then 2 orders from kinda the middle then my last order arrives. 10 effing days later Banggood reply to my emails. Then nothing for a few days then the same mail then nothing for a few more days then the same email AGAIN!!!!! AAAARGH!!!!!
I'm sick of this so I am already in contact with PayPal. But I won't get my money back till after Christmas. During which time I have approximately a $3000 lack of funds.
I can't word strongly enough my despise of these effing monkeys. Aaron Qin is an effing joke and as much use as a one legged man in an arse kicking contest. He simply splurts out lies like the rest of the useless, good for nothing bunch of lying, cheating retards they have working there.
They have offered me 50 Banggood points for my inconvenience??? I'd rather have Ebola

Absolutely correct! In regards to banggood putting the positive ratings only hajahaja I wrote a very honest & truthful account of an item I recieved from banggood after a month waiting & 3 days after I wrote my review they contacted me via E-mail and were questioning me as to why I left bad review, LMAO I went back to see if my review was still posted & sure enough they had removed it.

Secondly- after waiting for 45 days for some motors & ESC's I WILL NEVER shop at Bangbaad again! PERIOD! The most interesting part of it was out of several orders in a month and a halfs time frame I recieved the cheap little $3 items within 2 weeks but my major $200 purchases took 45 days! This is pathetic & absolutely no excuse is good enough .. Goodbye banggood!

I forgot to mention that when I opened a PayPal claim against this Chinese crap shoot the PayPal Rep told me in very bold words that they were very familiar with banggood lol, that in itself should be fair warning to all these folks that are "Ok" with banggoods lousy business practices.

You ordered something literally from the other side of the planet, that has free shipping, what do you expect? One month shipping time is normal for banggood.

Has anyone received their order without seeing any tracking activity update beside the original update of "CHINA, FUZHOU EMS, Processed Through Sort Facility, Your item has been processed through a sort facility in FUZHOU EMS, CHINA at 2:22 am on January 28, 2015."?

My order was supposedly shipped on 1/23, took until 1/28 too see tracking activity, and I'm still waiting (today being 2/21) with no tracking update since 1/28.

That's funny how people can be retarded, and full of hate.

Most of you guys order parts that are clearly " Usually dispatched in 10-15 business days " and then expect to receive them the next morning of your order, right into your bed when you wake up, and of course, at no charge at all.
Yes, Banggood is one of this company who will offer you free shipping !

" Business days ", first of all. Go back to school guys, this isn't 2 weeks. This is more likely 3 weeks, just to get your item back in stock (if everything's ok).

Then of course you have to wait for shipping, which takes minimum 2 weeks.
Yeah guys, China is a bit far away, you know, oceans to cross, things like that.

So that takes us to something around 5 - 7 weeks, depending on how long your parcel is transiting for.

7 weeks : 49 days.

You guys order parts that are not in stock (it's written right there, in front of your eyes when you look at a product), and then come here to cry like babies and express all your hate toward China and Chinese people.

Shame on you all.

" Absolutely correct! In regards to banggood putting the positive ratings only hajahaja "
That is wrong. Banggood is full of reviews from morons like your who feel alive when they rage on a website.

" my major $200 purchases took 45 days! This is pathetic & absolutely no excuse is good enough .. "
You are pathetic, and obviously far away from the realities of this world.

@KiDuIt: you, Sir (or Madam), deserve a medal. I've made dozens of purchases from website in China and the longest period of waiting was 2 whole months because the original shipping got somehow lost. I get my stuff (that is on stock) in maximum 3 weeks (approximately 15 working days) and the stuff that is not on stock on the day of the order in about 4 to 5 weeks (20-25 working days). I have been patient with every order.

Before getting upset and starting to moan, think of the FREE shipping (that I can get in my home country for orders above a certain amount of money, usually a large amount).

That's how it works.

Getting the best price on earth, with free shipping, has a price.
This price is called patience.
Unfortunately that's a quality that less and less people have nowadays.

I've probably spent nearly $1000 over the past 2 years with Banggood. I'll give that company 5 stars, anytime.

I have just placed my 100th order and although there have been a few issues I'm generally happy with the service I get from Banggood. It matches my expectations which are adjusted to the fact that I'm buying cheap goods with cheap postage. I place multiple orders instead of one big order. Shipping times have improved lately - on average 4 weeks which is good considering my remote location. At the moment I'm working in Germany and have placed some orders from the EU warehouse. They arrive in 3-5 working days.
