    are they trustworthy? or more important, do we know if their source is trustworthy?

    I've ordered iphone stuff from there and it was ok.
    I have to wonder...if it isn't genuine string there would be a lot of legal repercussions of openly selling it with the Yonex package as one of the pics

    yeah. noticed that it is SP.

    but i don't know if there is any legal issues with selling SPs. Yonex should have no legal rights with people selling side import.

    but the question is how did dealextreme managed to source side import strings?

    also noticed that the pic shows the black colored one.

    Looks like they are HK based ...

    "Because DX sends products from Hong Kong (a free port), there is no sales tax or duties imposed by the Hong Kong government. Customers do not have to pay any sales tax or export duties when they purchase from DX."
    I thought there was no sales tax in HK anyway?

    NBG-95 SP $2.50 a pack and free shipping.. Oh no!!

    I just browsed through the DX site and under About Us it says:
    Need Live Help?

    You may also reach us live by calling (+86) 1353-0080-484, (+86)1371-4039-173, (+86)1371-4478-454 new!. Our office hour is between 9am to 6pm HKT/GMT+8 (lunch break between 11:45AM and 1:15PM), Monday through Saturday except public and statutory holidays.

    Our postal mailing address is:

    DEALEXTREME
    PO BOX 779
    TAI PO POST OFFICE
    HONG KONG

    They do have a physical address for returning items:

    TO: DealExtreme
    Room 225-226, Block B, Focal Industrial Centre
    21 Man Lok street
    Hung Hom, Kowloon
    Hong Kong

    Some facts for your consideration:

    +86 is Mainland China IDD Code, 13---- are Mainland China mobile phone numbers. I am unsure whether DX is a direct-sale online site, or it's either a sales platform like eBay or an affiliate marketing site so when you click on the item it directs you to the seller's site to complete the purchase directly... ??

    It seems the store is trustworthy. But the NBG95 strings from this store is OEM(fade/counterfeit) or genuine(original)? Anybody can tell?

    How can we differentiate if the string is fake or not? I don't want to take the chance to break my racket because the string snapped by saving a few bucks.

    It is not genuine Yonex Nbg 95 string. One of my friend bought 10 from ebay for US $30 and they are not genuine.
