    Hi guys i just need a little more info before my parents let me buy some top toys and other things from DX. first of all i need to know about shipping speed
    1. how long does regular shipping take for and order of 5 top toys 5 micro sd's and an ezflash V.
    2. how fast would EMS shipping be for the same order and how much more will it cost me
    Also..... How credible is DX? i need to be 100% sure i won't be scammed in any way (although it's okay if i get fakes because i've heard DX will return them)
    AND finally how big is the chance canadian customs will intercept my order, and if they do will they keep the top toys or let them go with a fee?
    Thanks fo listening, [​IMG]

    I've ordered from DX plenty of times. It takes about two weeks with normal shipping. Credible. Cheap. Yeah.

    Beware of fake DSTT cards from DX! All the cards I ordered 9/6 were fakes (had gold dot).

    Shipping to me in Alberta has always been less than two weeks. I have received items 8-10 days after they have shipped.. i wouldnt bother paying for the shipping to be honest.. one of the best things about DX *IS* the free shipping.

    I might reccomend doing 1 TT 1 Memory card 1 EZ flash in one order, and the rest in a seperate order.. it may or may not make any difference, but at least if they run out of product they will ship your 1/1/1 rather than having to wait for the whole order.

    I also wouldnt worry about customs. get the 1 cent gift package (Under the top sellers link). Ive heard it helps.

    I've also ordered a few times from DX. Within two weeks is accurate. The first time I ordered it was about 9 business days and the second time (couple weeks ago) was about 5 business days.

    I'm in Australia and it came through customs with no problem so I doubt Canada wouldnt have any issues either.

    I ordered DSTT's both times. First time I ordered 1 and it was an original (as far as I could tell) and this time I ordered 3 and appeared to be the "FAKE 1" (no gold dot), as listed on the DSTT site. I loaded the currenty firmware on all 3 and all worked fine.

    I've ordered all sorts of cheapie stuff and have been happy with what I paid.

    There's 2 types of free shipping at DX:

    Non registered, for orders of low value (under $15 or so I believe, I thought it was $20 but I got registered shipping on an order that was a bit over $18). This can take 2 weeks or more from date of shipping. These will be left in your letterbox (as normal mail).

    Registered, for orders over $15 or so. It shows up as a 1c item in your cart once you hit the $ amount. This normally gets to me (in Australia) within 4-5 business days of shipping. You also get a tracking number, which lets you see when it actually leaves HK. These will need to be signed for by the person its addressed to. If you are not home you will need to visit your post office or arrange re-delivery based on your local post office's policy.

    Because of the nice price I ordered a second DSTT on 17th. It got shipped on the 19th and arrived on 27th. It was even declared as a gift, although I didn't go for that option. no fake [​IMG]

    The Acekard 2 is now only a couple of dollars more than the DSTT, and is probably a better choice for most people.
