Misleading decription and incorrect product, compounded by slow responsespoor customer service

"I ordered LED lights that were described as being 600 lm. After waiting for roughly a month for delivery (which I understand), I was extremely disappointed with was delivered. They were LED bulbs alright, but less than 50% of the brightness advertised. After 2 weeks of sending pictures, and pestering them for responses, I am being offered the choices of returning for a full refund, or taking a credit of 50%. I've requested the return option and will expect that they will pay for postage.
Use this service at your own risk!

Disappointed in several respects

"I bought a few things over the past couple years. Mostly lingerie for my wife : ) and solar powered car. Cheap imported things but they worked.

This is a sister company of LightInTheBox.com and I had similar results there.

This past winter, I bought a car power splitter (plugs in the cigarette lighter and gives you several outlets for GPS, cell phone charger, dashcam, etc.). Turns out it was wired backwards - positive voltage was on the shells, the negative was on the center conductor. Wound up breaking my GPS and dashcam. Over the next couple months, Mini sent me 3 more of these splitters. EACH WAS WIRED WRONG IN A DIFFERENT WAY!? They don't even screw up consistenly.

They also gave me 50% of the cost I laid out for replacement of the GPS and dashcam as a credit. $118 credit that would apply to $236 of merchandise. We made a long shopping list and got those things. They are good at taking pictures of products. All things are poorer quality / smaller than you'd expect - kitchen utensils, rubber band helicopters w/ LEDs (the batteries are weak / LEDs are dim). Even at 50% off, we're disappointed at the value.

I did order a couple of a different power splitters. Those WERE wired correctly. So they got that right at least.

Ottima lampadina, luce spettacolare

"Il pacco mi è arrivato nei tempi previsti con imballaggio ottimo e robusto, Mininthebox è una garanzia.
Aperta la scatola, ho trovato una lampadina un poco più piccola di come la immaginavo, l'ho avvitata nel portalampade e mi ha stupito la sua potenza, tanta, tanta luce e di tonalità fredda come piace a me.
Anche questa volta sono rimasto molto contento della scelta effettuata, ormai Mininthebox è il mio riferimento per lampdine a led ed altri gadget.
Ringrazio lo staff.

Deceptive!! Expedited shipping does not exist here,Evn when you pay for it.

"Purchase item on Monday. They verified my payment on Tuesday. I paid an extra $15 for expedited shipping on a $14 item with the promise that I would receive the item within 3 to 5 business days which would be Friday or Monday at the latest. When I go to check the status on Friday I see that they just shipped it 3 days after they confirmed my payment. Therefore I will not get my product until late next week or early the third week. Yet when I want to return it they want me to pay for shipping and a restocking fee so after I paid $30 to receive this item within the week my return is really only going to give me 3 to $4 back. Can't say how good products are **** do not pay for extra shipping because they lied. Straight out lied. And if you just go with regular free shipping you're going to wait about a month to receive it. Don't buy anything unless you're positive you will not return it those returns are a hassle here and probably cost more than the item"

Grande sito di acquisti!

"L'ho provato innumerevoli volte e mai avuto problemi. Quando i prodotti tardano ad arrivare (oltre i due mesi) non appena si segnala la questione veni rimborsato o il pacco rispedito!"

"Spedizioni molto lente ma qualità assicurata, tutti i miei ordini mi hanno sempre lasciato soddisfatto.
Un paio di volte ci sono stati dei problemi con la merce e il servizio clienti è sempre stato gentile e disponibile, mi hanno rimandato gli articoli (coi loro tempi) senza che gli rimandassi indietro quelli danneggiati. Consiglio vivamente.

Site professionnel avec un tres bon SAV

"Toujours aussi satisfaite du site. Certains produits sont decevant à la réception, mais ceci est du au vendeur et non au marchand.
J ai reçu plusieurs articles cassés, mais le service apres-vente a été tres efficace et m en a renvoye de nouveaux sans frais.
Je recommande.

Good but slow

"Good webstore, nice stuff for budget pricing.
Only takes for ever to get home. It took 2 months before I had my Iphone cases.
But it was the quality I expected and a for one case even better quality than I expected.

Good stuff for a low price!

"I really like this site, it's full of things that you can buy for a low price. The quality is not very good, but acceptable, especially considering the very high quality/price ratio!"

Reliable site, good value for money

"This time I decided to buy a bulk of led Marsing LED bulbs and SD cards.
Both are good priced and proven quality which I can recommend.
Once this was a bit more expensive order, DHL delivery was included free of charge.

"Kaufe seit ca. 2 Jahren bei diesem Onlinehaendler. War immer sehr zufrieden mit der Ware. Gute Preise, manchmal laengere Lieferzeit. Aber noch wichtiger ist, wenn es Probleme mit einem Gegenstand oder einer Bestellung gab, der Support hat nach kontaktaufnahme alles zu meiner Zufriedenheit geloest."
