    I'm looking for a website where I can get this for $20 or under (that's including shipping), and get it to me relatively fast.(I'm an impatient person) I was thinking dealextreme, but I just read another thread where it took someones package over 3 weeks to get. Is there anywhere faster, but my total cost will still be $20 or under?

    You can get it fast, or you can get it cheap. Not both.

    I recommend realhotstuff.com if you want it fast. It will cost about $28 shipped IIRC. Use SAVE5 (that's a five at the end, not an s) as a coupon code to get 5% off the price of the cart.

    Oy. If you're gonna order from DX look out. Mine took a month to get, and even via EMS it still took 'em 9 days since I ordered just to drop it off at the postal service.

    DX: Extremely cheap. Extremely slow. Took 1 month exactly to reach me (US).
    RHS: Takes one day, they ship out same day and DHL is lightning fast.. Not so cheap. Good customer service.

    Well...I guess since I'm so cheap, and I just got a 2gig microSD card in the mail (after being stuck with a 512mb for more then a year), I think I'll go with the deal extreme deal.

    I heard a lot of people say DX takes a long time, I think my case may just be a rarity but I ordered it on the 25th, they were out of stock so I waited patiently and eventually forgot I even ordered it. Got an email on the 29th saying it has been shipped and received it on the 4th. So all in all, it was really fast and for $19.06 it was definitely worth it.

    Today is the 5th, Chinese New Year, DX won't start shipping anything for a couple weeks or so. Just an FYI

    I order from DX regularly, and they have great customer service. They also have free shipping. My products take a few weeks to arrive, but you can upgrade to EMS shipping for a few more dollars.

    RHS USPS shipping option, c. $5 should get it to you in 2d, or at least both of my orders from them arrived in 2d which is pretty good for $5, plus USPS delivers on Saturday. Also they shipped out both of my orders on the same day ordered.

    All other people that I've seen use USPS shipping from RHS also have claimed 2d shipping time.

    I'm pretty sure I'd order from RHS if it wasn't outta stock >_<

    Ah well, DX has the white version anyway, which is the one I want since my DS is white.

    I got one in from nxpgame.com today, ordered on sunday, got a confirmation that it shipped same day, and got it today, spent $27 altogether for priority shipping, so that's a pretty good option too since RHS is out

    Yea DX is the best and they also have a points system. If you give reviews and take pictures of your items, you can get free stuff.

    I got my 3 in 1 today from NPXGame as well, A day later then the last guy, but that's cause I'm cheap and took the standard 1st class shipping.

    Congratulations you have just queried, decided on a store, made an order, and recieved it all the while as I'm still waiting for my EZflash, which incidentally happens to arrive tomorrow at long last. Enjoy your cart.

    Ordered mine from DealExtreme on 14th Feb (after the Chinese New Year break) and got it 6 days later here in Oz. Can't really complain for both price and service.

    I ordered a 3-in-1 GBA size from realhotstuff.com and received it within 24 hours. Granted, I'm pretty close to them geographically, but they were great.
