Questions?? Banzaihobby.com, is any good?

In fact i am looking for something which is selling from banzai hobby, specially those parts and tyres of japanese brands.
But when i am going to create account, the explorer tell me of that security ceritificate is unvalid.
Then i e-mail them in yesterday to check out this problem, but they didn't reply yet until today.
Could anybody tell if this site is any good, then explain me what to do with it, please?

Best regards

Banzai is a great site to use. I've already made 2 orders with them and they went very well. The only thing is my first order had nothing I ordered in stock but they sent me an email the very next day telling me the situation and refunded the out of stock discontinued items, and substituted a discontinued item for the newer version of it.

They ship fast which is why I like them. Both my orders were by EMS. It was sent out via EMS and the shipping price wasn't insanely high. I think all their shipments are done with EMS.

The security certificate is invalid error can be caused by your IE not being updated or Banzai has not payed Microsoft for a certificate. It is good to be cautious when reading this error, but Microsoft is not the reigning authority on security. Most of the US Government websites do not have Microsoft's security certificate.

I don't think my IE is not updated, in fact it's the only 1 happening with this situation.
But since the anyone don't care about this, i will be too.

I'm considering ordering a kit from Banzai but I'm hesitant as I have a gut feeling that these are fakes. Does anyone know if their stuff is legit??

Their stuff is legit, I've placed many orders through them, great site for buying Japanese brand products(as well as others) not sold over here.

Great store, however as they only ship (to Australia) by EMS, postage was a bit pricey. However I got my kit in 2 business days!!! Normally 2 weeks from Hong Kong and up to 3 weeks from USA.
