    I am ordering a EZF4 Lite Deluxe in about a hour. I have a question though. How long does bamboogaming take for shipping to Victoria(Australia). I know they are in Australia but i was just wondering. Thanks in advance

    Not sure, i got mine through bamboo and they were fine.

    and to the other question I don't think it is owned by australians, at least the staff are definitely chinese or asian. but they can write english quite well (aside from some minor grammatical errors).

    It's from Asia, give it more than a week. If you're lucky you'll get it within a week, but don't count on it. Usually up to 2 weeks. If it doesn't arrive by then - you can assume something went wrong.

    I've ordered about 5 carts from bamboogaming (for mates and what not, im teh paypal b17ch) anyways on average, most carts take about a week and a day or two, just depends your luck.

    I dont believe they are owned by Australians, but it's not like it matters..

    it might take them a day or two to confirm the order though.

    hope the order works out good for you.

    Has anyone had experience with Deal Extreme?

    I've used bamboogaming and they're great but dealextreme have a R4 + 2GB Sandisk for about $60US and only $15US for EMS shipping. So i'm considering going with them.

    From what i have read the only problem with them is their slow shipping times.

    Shipping times aren't that bad actually. Probably the largest risk is if the products get damaged as they are in a flimsy padded bag.

    My latest experience with bamboogaming:

    Ordered Sunday, Shipped Wendsday, arrives in Perth on Monday. It was supposed to be delivered today, but my mum said there was no delivery at all but Auspost says otherwise. They are still tracking down where my package went.
