    I purchased an r4i Gold cart from nds-card.com on 10/30, with HongKongPost(registered air mail) as my shipping method. After 20 days I still haven't received it.

    HongKongPost says:
    While the last update from USPS says:

    Is this par for the course where nds-card is concerned?

    It took about 24 hrs for them to contact me with their paypal address after I submitted the order. So far, nds-card.com themselves have been very prompt with responding to any questions I have over email. I'm thinking I may just be having considerably bad luck with the registered air mail.

    the longest i've ever had a package take from china was a month and a half and it wasn't even what i had ordered, now that said the norm for me is 2 to 4 weeks at most the soonest i ever got anything from china was a Supercard Mini SD i ordered not to long ago and it came in about 6 to 8 days.
    you also have to take into consideration it's holiday season so mail is going to get congested everywhere with individuals ordering things for presents as well as business ordering their seasonal stuff.

    They still haven't emailed me yet. If they don't email me by midnight, I'll probably be ordering it from somewhere else. I need to spend the money before I get hit with fees or something lol.

    Yeah same here, I often order from hk on ebay and it's usually 2 weeks. Rarely is it more than that.

    I ordered an R4i Gold from them on 21st October and they shipped it on the 22nd, the HK Mail website says it arrived in the UK on the 30th of October. I didn't pay for registered shipping so I'm not sure where it's at now but surely it shouldn't take this long to arrive?

    I tried them (because they're a site sponsor), and not impressed so far - I put the order through using a credit card, received no confirmation, received no invoice, received no order number. I tried to contact them, and was reassured that everything is in order, and then received two more emails stating in general terms that payment was received and the product was shipped.

    Update: I received notification that the order was shipped, along with my order number and a tracking number. Obviously, I jumped the gun and assumed the worst. My initial impression was fear/doubt because it was like putting money into a vending machine, but having no immediate response that anything beyond the fact that it just took your money will occur.

    Will update when the product arrives..

    Update - Jan 6

    Just received the product, took a long to to arrive, but it did arrive.

    My only critical comment about my experience with this vendor was the initial lack of communication, however everything else worked as expected.
