I have bought quite a few items on Lazeda but only things i cant get locally .
Recently i have been using Lazeda to compare prices for a well known tough watch but most on Lazeda are not originals ! as the 2 models im interested in are priced at 8000 and 10000pesos identical models on lazeda are from 1200 and 3000 pesos , things i have bought so far no problem.
But i will be buying the watch from a well known mall in Calamba !
Regarding the printer problem i bought a ink tank printer with tanks built in cost 9999 pesos brilliant printer
Scans as well

We have limited shopping in Iloilo, so I use Lazada a lot. Mostly good experiences. There have been some website issues (par for the course here). A couple problems with shippers - I like LBC much more than Ninja...

I never know when i will be home or not so I have not tried COD. I just pay with credit card.

Overall very pleased with the service and the items.

And what makes you think the watches in the mall are the real deal. The Phils is awash with Chinese fakes.

That is certainly what it seems like. Welcome to 'Customer Care' in the Phils. COD is the only way to do things here.

Yes, I'm sure.
As much as I like the idea of moving out to the Provinces, I can't see myself ever doing it on a full-time basis.

I did try COD and it was the same result, that is why I tried paying up front, as I foolishly thought that they would actually want to deliver it! I gave myself several upper cuts.

Now have the printer from the local store, same deal, checked it all and made sure it was going. Came home, plugged it in and as my previous computer was the same brand and series, it just set up in less than a minute and I was a happy chappy.

I think your analysis is spot on!

Sounded great but the first time it was 8 days later before they re-delivered and the second time it never showed up. LBC says that I refused the order and sent it back even though I kept contacting them for delivery.

I only had to return something once as it was broken. Cost me nothing.

A lot of the reviews on the products are bogus. If there is enough of them you can trust them but a lot of the reviews just say "product was great" and from "non customers". Probably the seller giving reviews to sell the product.

I always do "Cash on Delivery" as they do not charge extra for it and it guarantees I at least get the package. Since I live in an area with no street name or number it is surprising they can find me.
You are a foreigner. Everyone knows where you live!

Is that a threat?

Just because I order stuff does not mean it is in my name or I am the one going to the gate to meet the truck.

I looked at the post also and that was my first thought, but when I thought about it, it is a 'foreign phobia' post, with 'tongue in cheek' I think.
