BUYER BEWHERE in Australia.
Sometime's it's worth paying more
They do not post negative reviews to their own website so am posting my review here.
Goods point: faster delivery than expected, around 1 week shipped and tracked from Hong Kong (have added a star for this)
Bad points: Not Australian stock - came with massive UK charger (though they did include a UK to AUS adapter, how considerate)
Not convinced that this is new stock - scratches on bottom of phone which leads me to believe that it is refurbished. I could be wrong though if it is new stock then Samsung's quality control is poor.
lucky you if they have the stock on shelf
lucky you if they have the stock on shelf, they will ship it but if they don't then your order will get stuck in "Processing" and good luck hearing back or having any response from their customer service even if you msg them ten times! This is not an AU company and name is also misleading.
Wow, took a risk and it paid off
I was weary of this site because it seemed too cheap and despite au. domain its warehouse was Hong Kong. 2 weeks and my new phone is on the charger. I checked all over including black Friday sales and Toby deals still undercut the lowest price by almost $100. So yes I would shop with them again.5 star rating so far but I have purchased only, can't rate after sales service cos haven't experienced.
No customer service
I brought an Apple Watch for my partners birthday. I paid the additional $38 for express registered post. Over a week later the website states it’s still being processed at the facility. Even if it were to leave tomorrow, it’s not going to get here in time. I emailed the company regarding this. No reply. No apology. No further business from me. Buyers beware. I highly advise everyone to pay via PayPal so if your items don’t arrive you can just claim it back
This lens is a fantastic piece of kit to get into macro photography
The lens is very nicely made and feels solid in the hand. All the controls are very smooth and easy to use. The images are very nice and exactly what I had hoped for, being able to capture incredible detail off small objects, surfaces, and bugs. The lens is extremely compact and lightweight and easy to carry. It's suitable for macro photography as well as general portrait and landscape photography. It really does everything quite well except telephotography. There are a few things that are either non-features or less than perfect though.
Non-...features: Don't get too excited for the 1.2x super macro mode, it turns off image stabilisation and auto-focus, and 1.2x is not that different from the standard 1x mode, so I'd call this a non-feature. I also think the ring light, while it could be useful for close-ups on stationary objects, isn't that useful for insect photography, and it definitely doesn't replace a flash. It might do adequately in shady areas during the day at best. Don't expect the ring light to compensate for slow ISO, small apertures, or fast shutters on its own. You'll definitely get more out of this lens with a traditional flash and diffuser setup than relying on the ring light. On the plus side, if you don't use the ring light, you can put the lens cover on and then mount filters to the lens that you otherwise won't be able to do if you like lens filters. Less than perfect: One inherent downside of a 28mm (45mm equivalent) lens is that you do have to get quite close to your subject for a good photo and it may scare away more camera shy subjects. It still works though, and insect photography is my primary photographic interest. Conclusion: All that said, the photos I'm getting out of it are very nice and I don't regret the purchase at all. If what you're looking for is a compact and easy-to-carry lens for general use and macro photography, this is a great solution. If you're desperately looking for some increased working distance, get a longer lens, but then you're trading off for weight and size. The only real downside to this lens is the relatively smaller aperture for portrait photography and the like.
Great to deal with
I ordered the camera because it was way cheaper then any other price I could find.
I then checked the reviews and found some bad views which concerned me.
However the communication from Toby Deals was fantastic. I got emails advising when it was processed. when packed, when picked up by courier and then its journey to Australia from Hong Kong.
The delivery was surprisingly fast. But the warehouse is in Hong Kong even though they have an Australian contact. I realised this when I ordered the item.
The price was was about 30% cheaper but the service was 1st class.
And the item is as advertised. It does have a UK and European 2 pin cable and an Australian adapter but I had a few 2 pin Australian cables lying around so it was no problem.
Reasonable price reasonable performance
It's easy to navigate through the website, very accurate description and amazing speed of delivery.
Value for money amazing, I found cheaper website, but I got more value with Toby Deals.
Product quality so far looks good, but too early to said, it less than a month since I bought, but it's got warranty anyway.
Questions & Answers
I bought a Nikon camera and need this by end of December. I've sent email to them but no one response, I'm thinking to buy it from other store but I have put a dispute in Paypal, how do I escalate my dispute to get money back? The status in my dispute is waiting for seller's response, and the status of my order is "Paypal Reversed", what does this mean?
I ordered a phone on 3rd of December and paid $25 extra for the express delivery which supposed to be delivered in 5 days but until now nothing ,sent 4 emails but no reply not even estimated time or anything at all ,the order number is TAUW380167782, any suggestion or help will be appreciated .
Where is my phone? TAUW380168383
It's on its way. Calm down. 9 days is nothing. These guys need at least two weeks to ship anything, despite the times quoted on their website. I ordered the same Xiaomi smartphone on the 24th of November, and it only just arrived today. Although initially it ships via a courier called DPEX, it'll be transferred to Toll once it enters Australia. You can then continue tracking it via the Toll website using the same tracking code Tobydeals provide shortly after dispatch (not your order number).
Thank you very much, they finally replied to me via email, saying that it's out of stock and they are sourcing it... Hopefully I'll get it eventually, thank you!
