"Goodluckbuy" and "Banggood" - very cheap - safe?

Goodluckbuy and banggood have very low prices, especialy the latter, and free shipping. Are these places legit?

I've ordered a few things from BangGood over the past couple of years. They were named something else before becoming BangGood but I've had no problems at all with them.

Mostly I've ordered cheap iPhone clones to use with Cingular / AT&T GSM sim cards because I hate that cell companies force you to get the data package in order to get a decent phone. China is happy to sell a smart phone with no strings attached.

I've ordered a few other electronics like mp3 players from them too. But I never got free shipping so that's new.

worked for me, package arrived in 2 weeks. all the needed bits were in the box.
but no instructions.....

one thing: brushless escs were supplied with bullet connectors attached, but there were no male connectors for the motors... had to cut'n'solder

Should have sent the bullets but they probably saved you some time though. I don't recommend bullets, i've had way to many connectivity issues with them so I do direct solders from ESC to motors on every model i own.

I ordered 6 sets of stainless steel chopsticks, a digital food scale, and an alarm clock on Feb 7th. It arrived today (the 21st) and it was all free shipping! I am impressed and when I next need some odd sundries, I'll check them out again.

Banggood are excellent, never had any issues with them.

On one of my orders packaging forgot to include a small part that I ordered, sent them an e-mail and they were on to it straight away, I recommend them.

banggood

I have bought some helicopters (V911) and quad V959 on www.banggood.com.br
They are reliable and their prices are very good. I recomend buying their v911 heli and a spare extra batteries . They sell a pack of 5 extras that are really good.
Banggood has free world wide shipping. Very good seller

Few orders from Banggood to me in Texas took from 26 to 40 days, one small problem that wasn't resolved, but I will order from them again, just have to wait.
2 small orders from Goodluckbuy came in 12 to 14 days, no problems. I live in North Texas. Tmart and MyRCMart are other good places to buy RC. Tmart ships some things from US warehouse in about a week.
