I have used ali three times for laptops.

All arrived fine.

Was very nervous first time,there was PayPal which I was happier to use than my bank card itself.

Meh, you use your Bank card on Paypal! :D 

 

And it's very secure! Annoyingly every time I use it the damn thing has to send me a text with a code to verify my ID! :rant:

Yes but I trust PayPal rather than some random website overseas

I have a Revolut card for things like this. I use it a lot online and also in places where I have to check in with my personal details.

 

I usually keep less than £100 on it, which limits any potential problems.

I love aliexpress... spent waaaay to much money on there ( at leat 100 orders) but always do you due diligence.

 

Had a 100% delivery success and with  one order that I had an issue with, (cpu cooler with a 3 pin fan instead of a 4 pin) was refunded to the amount of a new fan within hours of submitting.

 

Only negative is delivery time. Dont expect it to arrive in a week... For me in Australia its average between 2- 4 weeks.

 

A little hint.  Go browsing and add stuff to your cart but dont buy it. You get notification when its on sale and you can get a better price on it. ( aliexpress is ALWAYS having sales run)  sometimes I have stuff sat in my cart for months and usually end up with a 30% off sale at some point!

I recommend a particular seller and part for people, no problems, item takes about 9 business days to arrive.

 

I guess its just like ebay with good sellers and bad.  I think ebay buyer protection is better though.
