Great variety, lot's of things to chose from. Nothing is second hand and every other week there are promotions and discounts that keep home-shoppers like me interested to check it more often than any other online shopping sites.
I have ordered a few things from this site. Many people complain about service time and quality, but I assume they are not sure about the policy behind lightinthebox.com.
Every product I ordered took about 15-20 days to arrive on normal shipment methods. One product, a costume actually, I paid extra for fast delivery and indeed it did arrive within two days of shipping date. Although shipping dates can vary among products or be delayed, once you know your product has been shipped it should follow the regulation of 10-20 days.
Now about quality of items. Real shoppers should know that before buying any products, you must investigate carefully. And yes I know you cannot regulate quality over the internet, but many reviews by customers is also a good way to find out about your product. This is why I like lightinthebox.com. Customers can write their review on their products, upload pictures, recommend it or not, etc. and this a great example of a user-friendly and honest producer-to-consumer relationship in a business.
As for me, an Asian student studying abroad, I love this site and the prices of the products are some of the most affordable ones out there on the web. It has made my shopping-life on the couch like heaven :)
