      1. I ordered 2 sets 11 days ago. Can’t find any reviews, good or bad, so I took a chance. I just sent an email to find out when my order will ship as their website says they normally ship the next day.

        1. Hi Debra, sounds too good to be true. I almost bought from SDD just now too. Can you please post a follow up or please please please

        2. Hi Debra, sounds too good to be true. I almost bought from SDD just now too. Can you please post a follow up please. At the end of the day $50.00 per set for a good replica is still not cheap if you wanted a set of 6 . But I’m curious about the quality and frankly, the wording on the site seemed a tad sketchy. Thank you

          1. I would like to know if the ssdtrade.com website sent the package or you received a reply from the website.

        3. Keep me updated on the outcome please! Would love the set but just as sketched out as everyone else. I’ve also not received any emails after signing up for the “10% new customer discount”

  1. I decided to take a chance too and placed an order on March 27. No communication from seller since, despite my repeated efforts. Don’t yet know how this will turn out, but “buyer beware” might be in order here.
