    They were excellent to me too. Fast e-mail replies and super helpful. Shipping was 2 days by DHL from them to me... Couldn't ask for better service IMO.

    Very reliable and helpful. fast shipping. i believe the color cases you get are random, you can try requesting navy and most likely they'll do it.

    i just ordered 2 more from them, 1 for my bro and the other for a friend so we can all play together.

    I also ordered from them, they sent it out pretty quick, but it still took DHL around 5 days to get it to my door. It was stuck in HK for 2 days for whatever reason, finally arrived in Australia on Saturday. However, there are no delieveries over the weekend so had to wait for monday :\

    I ordered from them, had a couple problems which they sorted out very quickly. I got my G6lite 3 days after shipping and love it. I do have a navy shell so if you don't get one maybe we can trade?

    I pre-ordered from them 3 weeks prior to the first shipment. They were very responsive to each e-mail I sent inquiring the delays, which were on the part of G6/M3 Team. The package arrived as promised, and everything worked fine. Also, just to put this out there, another buyer from HopeBuy had apparently received a defective unit out of the box. Though he had to pay to return it, HopeBuy stated that upon inspection, they would reinburse him for the shipping costs and resend the item at no cost. Now, that's great service coming for a shop based in China.

    I've asked this question before in the psxbox.net thread; do hopebuy send the package as a "gift" or do they write the exact value on the package? If they send it as a gift, I won't have to pay additional taxes...

    Damn, do they only mark it as a gift if you ask them to? I didn't ask them to and they've already posted it. Hope I don't get hit by a customs charge...

    I ordered from Mexico and they shipped it fast after receiving the payment 5 days ago, but the UPS tracking number doesn't work. I didn't asked them to mark it as a gift, I hope they do it anyways. :b

    I have the same problem, the tracking number doesn't get recognized by the TNT tracking page. They did however do what i requested from them (G6-Lite english version with a black cover and the shipment to be sent as low value).

    Although the tracking number didn't show on the shippers website, the package was received in three days. Due to that reason and the impressive communication by the hope buy team, I'm please with them.

    Did you use the forum to request the black cover, or did you use the "request" form at the bottom of the ordering page when you placed the order? Cause that's what I did when I ordered it earlier this evening... Hope they understand! Also, how long does it take for them to ship it when using PayPal (which I did)? Anyone else who used PayPal as payment at hopebuy.com?

    I used both and later i got a confirmation through the forums.
    Paid them using paypal and it took less then an hour for me to receive a mail saying that they received the payment.
