    It's been 5 days and my item from Dealxtreme hasn't shipped yet, I have an order code and a transaction ID but no message since then (5 days ago) getting a little worried, does it usually take this long?

    Sometimes. Give it another five days before you start worrying.

    Actually, you could just post it in this thread if they don't ship it within five days, better than cluttering the forum.

    So it should ship normally after the days off?

    With DX I'd be surprised if you got it in less than a month. Last time I ordered stuff from there it took 5 weeks.

    DX takes FOREVER to ship. Plus with the Chinese Holiday that does not help.

    Next time try Shoptemp (or a local seller) and you should get it a bit faster.

    DX is not quite the appealing store it used to be since Shoptemp came around...

    I would recommend getting your money back and trying somewhere else (because even once the shipment happens it will take a month to get to you).

    I have used shoptemp before, absolutely loved it, got item in a week and a half, but they don't have ndsl external microphones for sale, and DX was the next cheapest online store available.

    Oh I see. That would explain why you used them. What exactly is it youre looking for? I can try to find a good price on it.

    An external headset (Microphone ideally) or a replacement part for the inbuilt one that I can install myself.

    Sorry for the bump but the item still hasn't been shipped and as far as I can tell the chinese holiday thing should be over now, any reason why they still haven't shipped?

    I glad I don't have to worry about these "ship from hong kong" websites
    but yeah, that sucks, I hate waiting too
    I think these site should really let people know if there was going to be a delay

    Hmm, I found the cause for this: I checked my DX account and on my order it says "Status"
    and the status is "Waiting for Supplier" So what do I do now?
