Over the years there have been many threads commenting on the products sold by Deal Extreme. Some good, some bad. During that time people continue to buy from D/X regardless of negativity associated with the name. Perhaps D/X is trying to change it's image. Certainly asking for reviewers is a good way to start.
I've dealt with Mr. Joseph and he seems like a very nice man. Like all company employees I'm sure he doesn't have a magic wand that can change all of his companies policies. At least if you choose to review one of their products you have total impunity if you post a review either here or on MTBR. In the mean time you have a chance to review a product ( free of charge ) and to post your honest opinions. Not to mention, a chance also to dialog with one of the D/X employee's and to give opinion on how best to "improve" their products.
I've reviewed one of their products and think that D/X is trying to provide better customer feedback. They still have a long way to go but this is a good start.
