Dinodirect - Dino Direct is a Rip Off Scam
Update by user Jan 10, 2012
Yes, I have read the reviews on the DD website.You\'re right, they have the same reviews for all the products that I looked at.
It\'s a joke. The reviews never mention a specific product. They are all generic comments and you\'ll see them posted for a bunch of different pointers. It\'s all ***, just like the quality of their products.
It\'s all Chinese junk and this company should not be allowed to do business in the USA. They are thieves who live a million miles away which is why they do it. If they were here, they would have been shut down long ago. DO NOT BUY FROM DINO DIRECT!
IF YOU GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR, IT WILL FALL APART WITHIN DAYS. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET A REPLACEMENT OR YOUR MONEY BACK. THEIR WARRANTEE IS A BUNCH OF ***! THEY\'LL WANT YOU TO RETURN IT WHATEVER IT IS, BUT IT MUST HAVE A TRACKING NUMBER OR THEY WON\'T TAKE IT BACK!
TRACKING FOR ME WOULD HAVE BEEN $80 FOR A VERY SMALL PACKAGE!
THEY KNOW THIS AND THEY HAVE YOU BY THE BALLS IF YOU NEED TO RETURN SOMETHING!DON\'T BUY FROM THESE RIP OFF ARTISTS!

I bought a $35 laser pointer from www.dinodirect.com.The pointer after 10 minutes of use.
The switch was apparently defective. I contacted them for a replacement or refund. First they asked me to take it somewhere to have it repaired, then send them the bill!! Yeah, right!
Then they said they'd send me a replacement. Then they said they'd have to have the broken one back, and I HAVE to send it by mail with a tracking number only. Well, the cheapest way to send it back with a tracking number cost's $85.00! I have to believe they knew this!
Well, I sent it back anyway to the address they gave me without the tracking. Doesn't make sense to pay $85 to recover $35. A month later and they say they still don't have it. I say BS!
They have it, and it looks like I'm out $35 because I don't have a tracking number to prove they have it. All the stuff they sell is cheap Chinese made junk.
Avoid Dino Direct at all costs.If you buy from them, forget about any warranty's you think you may have!!!
Monetary Loss: $35.
