    Dealextreme is really good, only keep in mind that it takes 2 weeks.. But I didn't mind [​IMG]

    The demand for R4s off that site is probably high, so it'd take up to 2 weeks on shipping, and maybe a few days waiting for the supplier

    But with free shipping, it's worth it. And it's really cheap too. I'm gonna buy an EZFlash 3 in 1 to go with it this summer.

    i would say if your buying a couple things, but all in one package and get ems, ems becomes cheaper and then it comes in like 5 days and u get most of what u want =]

    buy some lazerz for your catz eyez

    anyway I haven't ever seen any coupons for that shop, wouldn't expect to get one with them being the cheapest place on the globe to buy from. the site's probably just set up for coupons either because it's a default of the site or in case they have a problem with a customer they can offer a coupon to replace an order.

    Sometimes they take quite a bit longer than 2 weeks to ship.

    They took my money April 6 and I still haven't gotten the package. They keep telling me to wait a little bit longer and if it doesn't arrive they re-ship. But I've been hearing that since May 3 and they still haven't resent. The latest deadline is this week. We'll see :/

    I certainly can't recommend them based on this experience. I hope this is a one off and others aren't having similar problems.

    Regards,
    Michal

    its 3-5 days delivery, and 1-2 days for them to get it. so 4-7 days.

    I sort of did buy in bulk.

    5 x (R4 + 1GB Kingston MicroSD).

    Of course if EMS shipping is relative in speed to standard shipping then I still would never have gotten it :/
    Anyone else in Australia had any experience with their shipping times?

    Regards,
    Michal

    yo michal, ive had experience with dealextreme and i have to say they are great ive ordered a total of 7 r4's+Kingston MSD's up to date over 3 different shipments and dates, i had the first 3 ordered a couple of months ago and had it sent via ems...the total time it took for me was 5 days...the second shipment of 3 took around 2 weeks via normal air mail....and the last one took about 5-6 days via ems as well.

    so as u can see from my personal experience the EMS is USUALLY 5-6 days [​IMG]

    P.S i once ordered a Single silcion case via air mail and it took 18 days...so dont do that! LOL

    and BTW i live in Sydney
