    Ok I finally decided to buy from a site called systemgears anyone heard of them? If you have baught it from them does it come with the metal tin? One more thing on the checkout it says

    Express Shipping
    With Tracking Information and Insurance $17.99

    Standard Shipping
    Without Tracking Information $4.99


    What do they mean by insurance? Is it returning the defective product? So if I choose standard I can return my Cyclods for a new one? One more thing how long do you think will standard shipping take since I live in London Ontario?

    Thanks alot and sorry for making so many topics I WILL NEVER DO IT AGAIN I PROMISE I'M JUST SAFE WHEN ORDERING FROM THE INTERNET sorry for caps but thanks guys a million

    ive never heard of them, and insurance is usually if the package gets lost (im pretty sure of that).

    I dont like the site at first glance, but thats just me. Also looks like the site opened earlier this year, I usually stray away from newly opened places until there are a few reviews (speaking of which, there is one on reseller ratings, and systemgears seems to be a member on the r4 forum, looking at a post i found).

    If you live in the USA, why not order from realhotstuff. They have a great rep, the cyclods is cheaper there and you get the package FAST.

    I would recommend getting it from a more popular site, I've never heard of systemgears so I would be cautious.

    Systemgears is alright.
    It's definitely a good site to buy, and you'll get your order fast.
    For the cheapest price, you get the unit, without being able to track it, and can't claim anything in case it gets lost.
    For the other option, you will be able to do those 2 things.
    That's basically this, but I'm not sure paying this extra is useful. I'd go for the very basic delivery, to pay less.

    Yeah, look here https://www.paypal.com/ipn It's nothing to worry about it is just a step before you order will be shipped.

    So it means I havent ordered right, I probably got it when I accidently put the Cyclods + 2GB Kingston + Hori Screen Protector (Made in Japan) in the cart. But I have that and another Cyclods some how so how do I get rid of it and start all over? Sorry for so much questions but I just have two more and I wont bother anybody anymore. Ok the first problem is, it says I have one item in the cart but when I click on it theres nothing there :S, the last thing is the Hori Screen Protector (Made in Japan), is it the fake chinese one or real?

    We don't mind, you're in a forum, we're help to help as much as possible.
    Concerning the cart, try to clear it and redo the procedure to make sure everything's alright. I don't know much about paypal since I don't even own a credit card, but there should be an option to do this.
    Concerning Hori Screen Protectors, in a shop such as Systemgears, they should be genuine. However, look at the comments if there are some, or type in google "Hori at systemgears" or something of the kind. I'm pretty sure the topic's been discussed somewhere, and you will find out if they are genuine.
    And once you get it, still make sure they are genuine, I heard bad things about fake ones, that could damage your screens forever.
    Good luck, and good choice you made to order a Cyclo!
