    9 days for me...and i live in the US

    its about 8 days to for the shipping people to get it over to the US, 1-2 days to ur door. Dealextreme ships usually immediately, but R4 is a hot product, so they're running out really quickly recently.

    If you're the sort of person that would spend $5 -$ 10 more to upgrade your shipping, then it's probably a good idea to fork out a bit more to get it from a North American shipper like RealHotStuff. It's essentially the same effect -- faster product, more money.

    Then again, if you're fine waiting another week to save $10, then by all means ... go with the cheaper option.

    16 days from when you ordered it? Or 16 days from when you got the shipping notification? Or 16 days from when it left Hong Kong? I'm creeping up on 16 days from when I ordered it...

    My R4 bundle was sent on March 12, and I received it between March 20-22 (I wasn't there when I got it, I would have to confirm the date)... So it took about a week to send it to Quebec. But that's only the shipping time, the delay was actually longer.

    Is someone able to access www.dealextreme.com ?
    It doesn't work for me. I hope they don't have any problems just like last week... I've ordered a R4 today [​IMG]

    Let's hope everything will be perfect tomorrow~

    Edit: It's now working... after 10 minutes refreshing the webpage.. phew! [​IMG]

    I am sorry I wasn't more clear. I meant it took 16 days after I got the shipping notification. Here is a quick timeline:

    March 1st - Ordered R4 DS
    March 4th - Received shipping notification
    March 7th - Left Hong Kong
    March 21 - Packaged arrived

    So total, from the time I bought it to the time it arrived at my door was 20 days.

    It got to me in 6 days after being shipped. But my order was placed 1 week earlier before it shipped.

    Mine supposedly arrived today.
    However, noone was home to when it was delivered so it's going to be needed to be picked up sometimes...

    Anyway, I ordered exactly 2 weeks ago from DealExtreme.
    They put it into the Hong Kong Post 3/12, it got sent out on 3/16 and arrived today.

    Oh, and I live in Ohio, if it means anything to anyone.

    Well, like I said, I ordered mine on the 9th. And we've just rolled into the 15th day, so I'm expecting that today, or early next week. Friday by the latest, or I might freak out. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Woohoo! It arrived today [​IMG]

    March 5th - Order Packaged
    March 7th - Order Shipped

    I would think that if you live in a major city that has a direct flight from HK (like LA or NYC), then you would get the order sooner than say if you lived in a small town where the nearest airport is a few hours away.
