    I have just received my order from winsunx ( EZ flash lite + sd + ezpass ), but it is empty!!!! There are boxes from ez flash and pass, but absolutely NOTHING inside. I`m shocked. Do everybody knows, how can it be and who is guilty? winsunx or may be dhl?

    first time I hear that.

    DHL have most probably nothing to do with it, you should email WinsunX.

    Well I have a lot of "friends" who work for various delivery companys, and the amount of thieving that goes on is beyond a joke! (Mostly expensive stuff like notebooks etc.)

    I wouldn't be so quick to rule out the delivery company. [​IMG]

    Still I agree... the best thing to do is email Winsunx, and see what they have to say. This one could be tricky to sort out though. (Especially since Winsunx undervalue the cost, so if you have to claim the "insurance", you're only looking at $20!!!) [​IMG]

    Good luck! :'(

    Wow, I didn't know... DHL seems like a terrible delivery company [​IMG]

    Forget what I said then.

    One of my friends ordered a DSLite and some games from LikSang when the package came their was no DSLite in it :/

    Guess who it was shipped by.. DHL anyway LikSang were cool about and sent him out a replacement they even used a different company than DHL

    Think I'll avoid getting anything shipped by them tbh

    My package of my g6-lite what was shipped with DHL , was opened when I got it.

    But I got a letter on the package that they opened it for "Security Reasons"

    Nothing was missing lucky enough. But my heart flipped when I saw that my package was opened [​IMG]

    So, I`ve mailed to winsunx and called DHL, winsunx said, that they had sent all the stuff, DHL will send me a curier and he will take a look at the package then. So i have a feeling, I can say goodbay to my order... :'(

    I would assume that DHL is one of the better courier companies, considering that their prices are higher.

    People pay $120 for a pair of Nike shoes, doesn't mean they are better than Newbalance. Higher prices does not mean higher quality. I've ordered 4 things from Winsunx (all UPS), with no issues.

    WinSunX packs their packages with a literal FUCKTON of tape...

    so if your package wasnt covered in enough brown tape to make a tennis ball, then someone tampered with it...

    True. All 4 of my orders were caked in tape. Tiny brown box, with about 5lbs of tape surrounding it. They seriously taped the SHIT out of the box. Basically, they made a box... out of tape.

    I ordered some clothes from thinkgeek (they ship with DHL) on a monday. I received them on the friday. I live in Perth, Australia and was super surprised how quickly the stuff arrived. The only bad thing I experienced with them was the price. The shipping was about the same price as the order I made...

    be happy that you don't live here in the states. I won a collector's box and the us customs and border patrol ripped into the packing with a box cutter, slicing my collectable. when I went to file a claim, I found out that we passed a law (a fucking law) which states that while your merchandise is in the possession of the customs and border patrol, that they are not liable for any damage incurred while inspecting said items.

    ps
    the box constructed of tape comment made my day [​IMG] I couldn't believe how much was used when I received my first parcel from winsunx

    So, the happy end of my story. After long correspondence with winsunx, they agreed to send my the stuff one more time! This time the package is full, but I had to pay custom fee ( at the first time not ), but still I`m glad to have all stuff in my hands. It turned out that DHL was guilty, and winsunx proved their honesty. The only conclusion I `ve made is not to buy in non-european shops [​IMG]
