As long we do proper research and buy from right supplier, we can enjoy huge savings. Can share photos of your purchase? How long your LED downlight last?

T5 very safe, 1 tube can last at least 2 years, mine had been with me for several years without any problem but bought from light shops. Main concern for Taobao's LED downlights are the quality as there's too many supplier/makers out there, nevertheless I've bought quite a few, also around RM14.00 inclusive of shipping and agent's fee.

Is it alright for you to share the link of your supplier since yours don't have any problem? Members here can refer directly. smile.gif

Interesting thread! Xxccess, are you able to read chinese? I've been checking out taobao and daigou, but always the concern is the inability to read chinese sad.gif. Translate sometimes doesnt work very well. Any links of the items purchased are greatly appreciated!

Very disadvantaged now when it comes to buying stuff since quite a few items on taobao seems reasonably priced, and very close to designer look!

myself also an ABC aka bananaman, normally my sister help me to buy, courier it herself also, no need via agent.

find courier which have store there, so they will repack and send back to me.. use sea freight, 1 months lead time.. a lot cheaper than flight.

and sea freight no limit aka escape tax. and flight max is rm 500. else kena tax

just buy from those with many purchases, will a lot safer and Tmall is more safer a bit..

tmall and taobao is same .. only 1 more expensive abit

My Chinese fail big time, that's why I'm using 65daigou as agent, it helps a lot. To purchase from Taobao, better look out for high number of users review and those with actual photos of products from their purchase. Don't judge by seller pictures.

From my research, Tmall seems to offer better quality products but research is still important when comes to online purchase.

Didn't check the exact calculation, knew some 3rd party agent can be cheaper. Using Daigou because of convenience and reliability, as long price of products is cheaper than local retailer, I'm fine with it.

Normally how much is the agent fee and exchange rate they count for??

I bought 130m LED strip and 30 Philips eye ball from Taobao, they count RMB:RM = 1:0.75, which i think is quite expensive.

Thanks for sharing. I have 2 items coming in tomorrow. One is a dish drainer and another is LED downlights mostly used for commercial but I'm using it at home for the effect.
