I've been shopping around online for some hard drives, and notice that Pricespy and PriceMe both show Wholesale Technology Limited as being the cheapest.

 

But no ratings, and I cant recall ever seeing them pop up before in previous searches.

This is their contact page, should I trust a company with an incomplete address?

 

Has anyone here heard of them or dealt with them before?

 

Would PS and PM list a company that wasn't for real?

Director is based in Taupo.

 

I'd be a tad wary, maybe call them and have a chat first and see what you think from there.

Yet another person obviously starting a drop shipping business thinking they can sell stuff cheaply and get rich. Good luck.

Ok, I'll go with the tried and true.

 

Thanks for heads up, seems i was right to be cautious.

They seem to have a physical address and valid contact numbers. Which is good.

I'd suggest using Geekzone Price (which is actually PriceMe)

Is there special GZ pricing if I use that link?

No special Geekzone pricing, but it's an affiliate link - we get a share of the Price Me revenue.

 

 

Totally Off Topic but why is the "Geekzone Pricing" so badly catagorised. 

 

Right now looking in the  "Computers - Components - System Cooling" section we have an apple Macbook, Brother printer and some seagate HDD

All I need is a 90mm case fan ...
