    Im oppening this topic for the people that like me, ordered a R4DS from bamboogaming, and are still waiting.
    What I would like to know is, when did you ordered your R4DS, where are you from, and when you recieve it, come here and tell us you did.
    Simple enough I think...

    So I go first.

    I ordered mu R4DS from Bamboogaming on the 28th of December.
    Im in Portugal.
    And im still waiting.

    Well seeing as delivery is quoted as 14-20 BUSINESS days to Europe/America , then you will be still waiting. The 19th would be the earliest for delivery according to their quoted delivery times.

    Thats why i did not order from them ( or any of the others that ship from China)

    I would of thought airmail would be quicker than 3 weeks, even from China.

    I've bought several things from the bamboo boys, and can confirm they are a reputable gang although it does take a long long time to arrive *to the UK at least.

    I have bought from Bamboo two times before, and both times my things arrived 7 days after shipping.

    My experience is that the shipping are rather quick from Bamboo. [​IMG]

    I don't think you understand what I wanted fromn this topic.. I know it does take a long time to be delivered, and I know it's normal that im still waiting. The topic was merely for the people that ordered from them to stay in touch, so when one gets it, the others could expect to have it to in short time.

    I know what I just said may seem a litle confusing, but my english is not very good =X

    It should be Monday now in australia and the web site isn't responding at all now. I'm just wondering if they've shut down. It seems to be taking them a long time to fix the mail server. I order my R4 last week and it on its way to the UK. I'm hoping I'll get the R4 at the end of next week.

    The website is up and running now [​IMG] Anyone know how long it takes them to ship to the UK? They've emailed me how long it will take but its usually takes 14 days. I can't wait to try the R4.

    Buyers from the UK or N or S America should expect to wait 2-3 weeks. Australian (or other SEA nations), and Asian countries would probably be faster. I got an X9 for a friend, it arrived in a bit short of 2 weeks

    I ordered from bamboogaming.com and i live in New York. Took 21 day from being shipped to arrive at my door stop...thankfully my SCSD worked and all but i definitely don't like that there's no box or anything included.

    I confirmed with bamboogaming before I purchased that all the goodies are included so there's no need to worry about that. [​IMG] My bet is they'd probably take it out of the packaging anyway, I guess it saves them a few cents on shipping. Doesn't really bother me, as long as I get the good stuff. [​IMG]

    i got an email more or less as soon as the web site would have come back up saying my order was posted [​IMG]

    i was a little worried becuse i put it in a couple of days before it went down but becuse somthing went strange in the check out i emaild them to make sure every thing was cool befor i payed.

    if i had just payed it probebly would have gone out before the down time.

    ah well, i should have it soon enough
