    I'm in the UK, but i've bought most of my stuff (including my M3DSS) from Divineo China. Prices in the UK are stupidly high.

    Any particular reason why it needs to be a UK store?

    Didn't really want to pay any import duty. and was looking a quick delivery

    I have looked at www.model-gadget.com but wasn't sure on reputation.

    I havn't used model-gadget myself, but I have seen them recommended before.

    I have also seen nxpgame.com recommended a few times and I think they are UK based.

    You could try Divineo UK, i have used them once with no problems.

    Other than that I can't think of anywhere, I very rarely buy these things in the UK due to the high prices.

    You have to be careful when buying these off ebay as ebay remove the listings and naru the sellers, some sellers then won't send out the items, and as the listing doesn't exist you will have a hard time getting your money back from Paypal.

    I use to sell these myself and got warned by ebay several times, i also saw 2-3 competitors get kicked off ebay.

    Exactly, act first ask questions later. I have never be banned from ebay, but i've been close several times (lost count of the number of times i've had to do the VeRO exam ¬_¬ )

    I did get an apology once when they removed a PSP, someone reported it to come with pirated games when in actual fact it didn't. (I am happy to sell a PSP with an OE firmware, but I don't include pirated games like 99% of the other sellers who don't get banned do >:-| ) That is something that really annoys me!

    i must have been lucky for the seller to really send the r4, but the seller was a power seller, the item i bought was removed from ebay, but the seller kept in good contact, sent me tracking number, I was well looked after. Now that you say that, i probably won't buy from ebay again.

    @station4u
    I would recommend removing your website address from your sig before a mod notices it.

    Last time i checked the rules it stated you could not put a link to an external site, only those within afterdawn. Also based on your username I would guess putting that link in you sig would count as advertising which I know is against the rules.

    EDIT: Just checked the rules and I can't see a mention of the external site bit so I guess i'm wrong on the front (but i havn't checked the rules for a good few months) you could try leaving the link there but I really don't see a mod approving it.
