I wanted to share my experience (although you can find many reviews of AliExpress online). Because in terms of reviews, there can't be too many. Well, where can I start. - The price : First and foremost, if you are buying from China you are doing so to save money. And you probably will. The items are much cheaper that anything you might find in a store (sometimes you even find the exactly same things but with a 200% increase in the price tag ). - Worldwide shipping : Most sellers will send their product to anywhere in the world for free (free shipping) or for a small fee. - Quality : This is where things start to get bad. You can't get top dollar quality if you are only spending a few cents. So buy things like cheap jewelry but I wouldn't risk to buy diamonds there (you'll probably end up with a fake). Apply that sentence and turn it to everything else like cheap clothes versus real leather, or funny gadgets versus an expensive laptop. You aren't sure of the quality of the product. I've bought jewelry and clothes for a few cents that turned out to be really pretty (it looks a lot more expensive imo), but the clothing items that cost the most weren't the best in terms of quality. - Shipping time: I've waited for almost 2 months for a bracelet to arrive, but I've received things in 1 week and a half.
