Hello everyone, I'm new in this but I'd like to know if somebody actually bougth and received some goods from jadebo.com Thanks!
PS: It's very nice to have this kind of forum. I was just about sending money to jadebo for a beautiful dell XPS M1330.
Moved to a thread of its own since it had nothing to do with the other site being discussed.
It's doubtful this is a legitimate site. Dell is known for selling direct to consumers. It's pretty difficult to beat the price Dell can give you if you order from them, unless you happen upon a good refurbished machine. The UK site for Dell lists the M1330 at 589 British pounds, or approximately 738.40 euros, counting tax and shipping. Jadebo claims to be selling the same machine for less than HALF that. The site claims it's "brand new", so I doubt very much that it's a genuine Dell.
Being able to undercut the actual brand seller by 50% on a piece of high end electronics just doesn't happen. Brands don't allow Chinese factories to (legally) sell direct and undercut their own prices.

My company used to be a Dell 'partner' and the best deal we ever got from them on a bulk purchase (20+ units) was a 20% discount and free shipping/delivery - and that was also because the account manager was a personal friend.
Less than half retail price? No chance...
The page www.jadebo.com has links with www.wanlro.com and www.126.com, who have alleged fraud in several Internet places.

Was going to buy a macbook pro from them but thought I'd get the cheapest thing first to see if it was a scam. Got as far as western union before I thought I'd do some more digging.
their confirmation email (for a wifi ipod touch) was goods 80E delivery 30E = 110E and their conversion came to 90GBP, bit too all rounded up for my liking. The exchange rate = 88.30 at the moment (1 GBP = 1.24575 EUR)
'New product' is pictured in 3rd party cases etc. not the original box. If the prices where that cheap the Chinese over there would be buying them all up!
if it was all knock off from the factory I could understand the prices but too many signs of scam.
