    I bought an R4DS from gameyeaah on Dec 29... and then I bought an EZFlash5 (for my friend who prefers EZ products) from winsunx a day later... the winsunx order was about $5 more expenive after shipping (which is the reason I went with gameyeeah in the first place)... well freaking the winsunx order comes in 3 days later! I still havent received my gameyeeah order.. i should have just cancelled and ordered it with the ezflash5 from winsinx

    I ordered mine from Gameyeeah regular mail (~$6) and it took 9 days (excluding weekends) which I didn't think was bad considering it came from China!

    Yeah, mine came next day too on ground shipping. What I think is that, at least recently, they went out of stock with their R4's and decided to not update the site with this information (at least not immediately). Their system automatically processes orders and charges them immediately. Therefore, people who ordered without this information were stuck waiting for them to get in another shipment of R4's (even those who opted to go for next day delivery).

    Ordered my R4 on January 11 and got the "Have arranged shipping" message on the 12th. I live in NYC, and it arrived today on the 23rd, so the wait time wasn't too bad.

    that may not be that amazing to you guys, but I live in new zealand, sometimes its takes up to months for stuff to arrive, Im definetly going to use winsunx all the time

    ten days after i was shown the "have arrange shipping" message, mine was delivered. Four days before the lower end of the estimation

    In the UK you can't choose the cheap ass shipping option, but my first order arrived 6 days after I ordered, which is pretty damn good.

    Ordered 3 more on the 21st - for some reason the destination on order tracking is listed not as my nearest city like last time, but as a city at the other end of the country. I asked on the forum and they don't seem to think that's a problem though. They also sent me an un-filled-in form email instead of my shipping confermation...

    I ordered it on January 2nd. It didn't arrive until January 16th, but it did come. If I were you guys and you see this get it from modchipstore or realhotstuff.

    The $5 shipping is slow as balls at gameyeeeah to say the least!

    So Winsunx is reliable? Realhotstuff also right? Which is more recommended Winsunx or Realhotstuff?
