    I'm about to buy from nds-card.com, but do I pay the extra $3 for a tracking number? Is it necessary? Or should I just go for the HongKong Air Mail (without the Tracking#)?

    In my experience, shipping from China/HK is on average at least a week faster when using registered shipping.
    Unregistered shipping sometimes takes me as little as 1.5 weeks but usually takes at least 2-2.5 weeks and sometimes almost 4 weeks.
    I haven't used registered shipping as much but it pretty much always arrives within around 1.5-2 weeks.

    Thank you! I guess I'll go with registered shipping! ^_^
