    I'm wondering does Deal Xtreme ship the new R4's or the old ones. Cause my friend asked me to order one for him and he wants the new ones.

    I've been wondering this as well, because they seem to be avoiding the question on their board.

    Not sure, but the last email I sent them (about two days ago) they replied that they were out of stock of r4s...which they don't tell you before ordering, so yeah.

    Over there.
    I would assume that if they were out of stock, then they would get a new stock of the new R4's.

    Not necessarily. Like many HK-based shops they don't like to reply to emails many times. [​IMG]

    Why thank you for your blinding flash of obvious Holmes! Nobody would have thought to email them!







    They've received many, many emails about the subject and have been ignoring them.

    So would it be better to get it from Gameyeeeah?? The reason I want to buy DX is because its free shipping and fasters.

    Do not buy from DX expecting fast shipping [​IMG] . It takes a week and 2 days to get to my place usually (Victoria, Australia)

    I hear if you pay 20$ extra for dhl express shipping or something you can get it in 2-3 days from gameyeah

    If you are rich or you don't care about the extra money spent get it from gameyeah with the express dhl shipping
