SD Affiliate offer.
Lots of discussion on how this is a stealth advertisement in prior threads for this seller.

Also lot of discussion on quality.
Seems like most thought it was (at best) Harbor Freight ish quality.
Cheap price and cheap product.
Ymmv?
At $3.99 seems a good deal though. Harbor Freight no longer does the "coupon thing" so their cheapest version of same product is $4.99. I haven't compared all the other items to their Harbor equivalent price though

And by the way I have used my little 3-set of Harbor Freight adapters for 7+ years and they still work fine. I feel like I bought them for $2.99 at some point with a sale or coupon back in the day. "Harbor Freight quality" doesn't have to mean "junk". I have their ratchets and a variety of the black impact sockets and wobble extensions etc and all work just fine. I may think twice before investing in a cordless power tool vs something like Ridgid (lifetime warranty) or better makes in those lines. My Pittsburgh low-profile floor jack has been going strong for 7 years as well
Yes.
SD Staff post a mix of actually found deals along with affiliate advertisements.
No disclosure on which is which.
SD also chooses to hide the "Staff" flair on the app...which they know most people use.

To be fair, iconian is one of the few to admit to it being a negotiated arrangement when asked. also posts many good truly found deals. and seemingly has actually bought and tried some Lexivon products himself.

regarding quality, iconian mentioned their hex keys being good...which might well be true. hand tools are easy to produce well and not put under a lot of stress .
check reviews for the impact adapters though and you'll find many instances of breakage. the overwhelmingly positive reviews might have been incentivized

I would argue that most people who thought it was HF quality likely didn't use it. Many who got it, felt it might not have been top of the line, but was def above average...


I have used their hex keys and have found them pretty nice, but I only can compare to generic crap that I get with stuff I have to build

So what's the deal with these types of posts? Is OP an SD employee or is this someone that gets paid to pretend to post "found" deals?

Is this brand sold anywhere other than through Amazon?

If not, then I would personally stay away.

Also, to be fair. if you remember my touchpad thread, if we were to strictly adhere to a definition of an AD as some folks here do, then it was an ad, since i didn't find it on my own, but was given a HU by HP. 10 years later, nothing ever came close to that deal, views wise, comments, wise, WARNINGS wise, etc Smilie


IMO, a deal should be judged on a deal basis, not where it came from, because if I find it on my own, and it sucks, then it sucks, If it's negotiated and it sucks, then it sucks, so to keep things simple, if deal sucks, then it sucks, if it's great, then it's great... who cares where it came from?


I always try to be as transparents as I can. And if asked and I have experience with the product, I state so. I also have another set of lexivon tools, tiny screwdrivers I needed when swapping WiFi card. They are nice too... the funny thing is, most of the tools are better made than the screws they are used with... heh

I don't find any of these to be SD's. I'm sure vendor is paying SD to post these.

I honestly was mostly curious cuz I might want to be one of these ppl that get tipped off about deals from sites and manufacturers lol. I've got a bunch of this lexivon stuff and it's actually quite good for the $, much better than harbor freight.

When you can get the HF one for $9.99 on sale then I would say no
