If you can even ask a question like that...why would you consider purchasing anything from that vendor/website?

I'm looking around online but I'm not finding a lot on them. Doesn't mean they aren't trustworthy but I'd choose another site that has more reputation. Which country do you live in?

Their Whois record is what concerns me, http://whois.domaintools.com/dragonstore.eu. The registrant record is not disclosed, although it's a good bet that the operator is in Poland.

Try to find reviews for that site. I hope you have more success doing that than I did. No reviews found tells me to stay away from

that site....far away. 

Actually, I'm thinking the OP is spamming.

Has anyone else tried looking up or using any of the webpage links (on the site homepage) that typically help one to decide what's going on with the site?  None of them worked properly for me.

Looking at the replies, I don't think this is a trustworthy site :mellow: . Try something else OP.

Hmm, phone number and address on the site is actually for Scan.co.uk (who are a completely legitimate, well known UK computer supplier).  However they make no mention of being anything to do with Scan, and Scan make no mention of Dragonstore on their website or social media.  Also they claim to have a Royal Warrant in the name of "Dragonstore", which is false.  A legit operation would have no need to use anonymous domain registration IMO.  Take from this what you want but I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

Scan say it's nothing to do with them... Avoid at all costs.
