    I was just browsing thru here last week and found Acekardi for just 12 bucks with free shipping from dealextreme.

    So I placed an order right away last Monday. Today, which is a week after I placed the order, I checked

    for status and they are still preparing for packaging, meaning they haven't even shipped it yet.

    Well, I don't expect much from free shipping but does it even take more than a week to just send it out?

    Or are they dealing with too many orders and can't keep up with everything??


    Just a bit frustrated.. that's all folks.

    They told me 14 days. For 2 ak2i's and a case for my DSi, it took exactly 20 days. Really long. But it comes in really good condition, not even the slightest scratch, so it deserves.

    seriously I don't understand it XD I've never ever had a bad delivery from DX every time I've ordered anything from DX its arrived in 1-2weeks never over the 2 week mark and I've ordered quite alot from there I even ordered something that was out of stock and got it in 11days [​IMG]

    I think it must just be bad luck, or bad timing for you when delivery takes so long.

    For DX, 14 days is pretty quick for most people. That's about my average as well ordering from them.

    It has been said again and again. If you are patient, go with DX. If not, go with some place more local.

    Yeah, I'm not in hurry so I don't mind long shipping time.

    However, I think taking more than a week to just ship it out is another story.

    By the way, I just got a confirmatin email from DX that they've shipped out Ak2i today.

    Awesome [​IMG]

    I put a AK2i on order on 9/14, it's still at "Ready" status, I e-mailed them over a week ago about it and finally got a reply.


    SKU: 18728 Acekard 2i AK2i Multimedia SDHC TF Cart for DSi/NDSi/DS Lite x 1 Ready $12.97

    As of today Oct-18-2009 it is still at "Ready" status. I wish they would of atleast updated the page to reflect OOS status in the last 5 weeks!!!

    The Quickest DX ever shipped to me was 10 days.
    I was surprised when I found my 3in1 in the mail.
