    I have 2 orders in with dealextreme.com [for console repair parts] that were placed back on dec 23rd and jan 3rd. and while I realise that the holidays have something to do with the delay, I do find it rather unacceptable that the 1st order (which was then separated into 2 orders by their fulfillment center) hasn't moved a bit since being accepted and dispatched back at the beginning of this month.

    this is the latest information for the 1st part of the order that was placed on 23 Dec.
    I don't remember ever having to wait this long for a parcel to make its way to the states before.

    I was going to say, aah, dealextreme has always had long shipping times. But this is pretty long indeed :S
    Maybe you could contact them?

    I'll give it until the end of this week and if I still haven't seen an update with anything hitting u.s. customs then I'll contact them. I'm just a little anxious because I've had 2 DSi systems disassembled and sprawled out on the living room floor awaitiing the upper displays and kingdom hearts shell replacements for what seems a very long time.

    DX always takes like a month from ordering to receiving. Same with Focalprice and ebay items from Hong Kong or China.

    It's always the same thing if you order during Christmas-New year period.

    DX doesn't really have the best customer service either.

    I have 2 open tickets with them that I've gotten ignored on. It kinda sucks.

    Plus I just got something yesterday that I ordered on October 16th 2010. And it was broken.

    its best just to wait a month like others said

    it took 5 weeks for me when I ordered (and none of the stuff was out of stock or anything)

    Most shipping from China will be delayed because of the bad weather. Shipping to USA, Austrilia, UK/ Europe will be badddly delayed by the bad weather. Make sure that you place your order early. Chinese lunar new year holiday will begin from 25th, Jan. Most factory in China will stop to supply. Workers are very busy to buy ticket to go back home. Everything will be get normal after 10th, Feb.

    Do not trust the tracking. 3 packages that I've already received say that they are 'in office of outward departure' still in China. The tracking is unreliable and stupid.
