    I think this is the place my friend uses all the time. She buys rings and other crappy, fake, jewelry at rock bottom prices. She knows they aren't real anything and they actually look pretty decent for the $2-$3 she spends on each. I could do that but I'm not into stuff sitting on my body other than clothing that lasts a long time for light wear. I mean I'm into tech but I'll never do business with a seller outside of the USA so that means I have to pay a bit more. Well, not really compared to Japan but then there's that.

    I guess it takes wishful thinking to shop on wish, because you'll wish your order was arriving as described.

  • Heatea

    I mean I think people think about wish too much as actual real shop or whatever. Ive bought a lot of things off of wish and always were satisfied cause I knew what to expect. I go on wish when I want some shit where i know I wont care about the shitty Chinese quality. To shop on Wish you gotta have a certain mindset like if you shopping in one those big capitals market full of people selling counterfeit. Double check every description every delivery fee DO NOT TRUST pictures, read reviews. And dont ever expect something to good of a deal its a fuckin chinese market. I dont use it to buy important shit I use it to buy unimportant things that I would have to pay a premium for on normal websites id never buy pc hardware there, however I always wanted a butterfly knife and got an actual very good one off of Wish for like 5€. That was quite a deal, try to find an actual good balisong for 5e on "normal" websites. Anyway I think wish is just a niche site you have to visit with a certain mindset and only for a certain kind of items. And a lot of people go there without realizing that and they end up disappointed. This isnt Amazon. Despite the shadyness of the site id hate to see it go. They provided me soml many novelty shit id have never bought elsewhere cause of the inflated price. Its chinese shit and sometimes thats just what I want

    bzzt, "if it looks too good to be true, it PROBABLY is" is the correct phrase, not in Wish's case, but in general, once in a lifetime deals do happen, once in a lifetime

    It's that moment when you see that awesome card or drive you have been dying to get your hands on. You look on wish and OMG! Here it is for 300 dollars less than it could ever possibly be! Your first gut feeling is "that's just too good to be true". That's it. That's exactly it. It seems to be too good to be true because it certainly is too good to be true. Lol great video

    I went to buy some HID lights for my car off wish. However, quite clearly the light bulbs were halogen bulbs in the picture. So did not order anything. I suppose some people don't know, so just assume they get what they were told.

    Warns about fake stuff on wish. Sure i can get behind that.
    Using a sponser that sell Windows keys for 10% of real price... Hardly seems like legit keys.

  • Devin Lauderdale

    Hey @Science Studio
    Just wanted to address your advertisement for the CD-KEY selling sites, generally even though that OEM key will activate a copy of Windows 10, it leads people to believe that it is a legitimate copy of Windows. Microsoft licensing deems these type of keys illegitimate, as disclosed in their terms of use. So while they key may work to activate, it’s against Microsoft’s licensing and use terms. This is the same conundrum people go through utilizing the Accessibility upgrades, or other less than legal forms of activating windows. I suggest not using that website as a sponsor, as it could portray your channel in a negative light.

    • Devin Lauderdale
      Devin Lauderdale 6 months ago

      To add to this, those OEM keys are reserved for only hardware manufacturers that are set to a certain standard that an average person are not, and will generally have some sort of partner or specific volume licensing/reselling agreement with Microsoft.

    There is no denying that wish is filled to the brim with scams and crappy knock-offs when it comes to hardware, and alot of general electronics.
    I have tried out most of wish's product categories (bar the hardware, as this was to obvious of a scam) and i have to say that in terms of looking for more generisk items its not to bad if you look good enough for the "best deals".
    Non-electrical tools that is easy to manufacture can be bought cheap or even accessoreis to electric tools you've bought localy.
    LED strips i'v bought in stacks and have all worked like a charm tho the way "RGB" is designed on these tend to be a bit low-end and the colors are split in different leds instead of having every LED having RGB capability (cold-white looks good).
    My biggest favorites so far getting from wish has actually been things like shrinking-plast tubes (for insulating cables you sodder), rubber grommits and absolutely velcro straps.
    10 velctro straps here in Norway would cost me around 6USD, i bought 500 of them from Wish for a mere 11USD including shipping (took about 2.5 week).
    And after having tried out around 200/500 of them over a longer period of time i managed to snatch up another stack of 1000x for about 14USD.
    So to shop on wish you need to be realtistic about your expectations, and preferably shop items that is more basic to manufacture at a price point where you can be "whatever" about the price if or when you stumble upon something that wasn't as advertised.

    This is not related to the video but to the sponsor. The Windows 10 keys are questionable with SCDkey. I just had my nuc replaced by intel and the OEM key would not transfer. Microsoft said it is blocked due to being a Retail key that has zero moves on it. I contacted SCDkey and they helped. Took 2 new keys to make it work. They helped 100%. But did I get what I was expecting. I have a key that works and that is all I know.
