It's fine for cheap mass produced factory items but I'd not buy anything of real value. Your warranty is within china so you have to send anything back to RMA it.

And even then the warranty period is normally only 30 days from dispatch, so most of it is wasted during shipping.

Aliexpress is really for wholesalers who don't have credit accounts rather than retail customers. Returns are written off as a loss in that situation and accounted for in their margins.

It turns out watercooling parts like fittings found on aliexpress are mostly from Barrow's, and barrow's stuff is like bitspower's stuff without the brand... fittings, tubes, coolant, modding tools, reservoirs or rads are just cheaper but im pretty sure the quality is similar IMO, but the choice is also limited, time to receive the goods is long and big brands are providing much more high end products...but it's just my opinion, some might give you opposite opinion...

I would not risk it, my Husband bought a laptop from them, which turned out to be cheap at thze beginning but did not last!...the look on his face when i told him..'i told you so' was quite empathetic so now he knows..but on the flip side. I get dresses and shoes from Aliexpress and love them!. I would say anything with equipment..stay clear, but anything else thats more luxury based..dig inh

No it's not: Alibaba is for wholesale B2B, AliExpress is for retail B2C.

I've bought loads of stuff from AliExpress and rarely had a problem, but I'm not sure I'd trust unbranded Chinese stuff - or, worse, branded-but-fake Chinese clones - for keeping water off my precious PC!

I use aliexpress all the time, usually finding stuff for 50% of the price I'd find on amazon and comparable or cheaper than eBay.

You'll need to be aware of possible quality issues, so I limit my aliexpress purchases to fairly commoditized stuff.
