    Ordered on the 6th April, shipped the next day, received today (7 days from ordering) from Hong Kong to the UK.

    Chose the "Hong Kong Air Mail (no packaging)" delivery option.

    No invoice included? That's great. Really. In my country, that'll be a problem with Customs.

    Thats great dice, i'm impressed with their service too. Didn't think it'd get there so quickly!
    Almost as quick as DHL/UPS, you must've been lucky...

    I wouldn't generalize, honestly. The announced delays are 2 to 5 weeks...
    dice must have been lucky [​IMG] and so were the other guys who received their stuff

    Maybe they're just saying that while it's just faster, so people don't whine when they get it really late, as in, 2 to 5.

    If your country requires an invoice or package listing with the shipment, make sure to leave a message when ordering to have it with the package for customs or you can't get it through customs..

    I actually wouldn't be surprised if items get to customers fast. Because of where the site is new, people making orders, their orders are probably filling up fast, so they have to ship fast to keep on schedule.

    I can see it taking 2-5 weeks in about 8 months when the "new-ness" slows down. But at the beginning, I can see it getting shipped fast.

    At least I trust Shoptemp. I've always been wary of websites because they don't look authentic, but I trust GBAtemp.

    Kudos on getting your package fast by the way.

    Ordered on the 6th. Recieved today on the 14th. That's amazing speed for free shipping, especially since its shipped to Canada. I'll be buying more in the future. [​IMG]

    I recently purchased an AK2i from shoptemp and it just came today.
    I'm in France and it took 13days till I receive it (ordered on 6th, received on 19th: faster than DX).
    You have to know that it doesn't came pre-flashed for 1.4 DSi firmware.

    I'm pretty happy except for one thing: since the price was so low, i added a Kingston 8Go to my order and guess what ? It's a fake one from Taïwan (reals are from Japan).

    So what I have to say is you can safely order from ShopTemp, prices are very competitive and shipping pretty fast for a free one but forget about micro SD cards on that site !

    My package arrived today, order placed on the 11th.
    Decent enough packaging (sent via register airmail).
    M3i Zero arrived DOA.

    Awesome.

    *edit*
    card not recognized by any DS, also doesn't recognize microSD card when trying to do the firmware update using the USB cable. A complete dud.

    *edit^2*
    My apologies, the microSD card was the problem, M3i was unable to read it, and therefore I couldn't flash it.
    Although the card works 100% in a Cyclo, and 5 Ak2i's, passes tests, and works perfect no matter how it is formatted, but does not work in an M3iZero. A-data, 4GB, C6.
    (Editing original post and subsequent posts in case people read this in the future and get disheartened)

    Hmm, the feedback hasn't been so good so far. [​IMG]
