    It will take from a few hours to a day to process, then from there, 1-5 days to ship. 2 days seems to be a good estimate seeing you're in NY. Just check your email or their site for the tracking number they'll give ya.

    Gah! I just ordered one, too *yay* But...

    Modchipstore ran out before I could order, so I spent a day or two shopping around elsewhere. I ended up putting in my order at Winsunx, who I dealt with before back in the GBA days (they also happened to be cheaper than Modchipstore, $53 shipped). It said they were in stock, but when they processed my order they said it was backordered and I'd have to wait about 7 days (as it now says on the product page). I probably missed the last one they had by one order, lol. So a couple more weeks of waiting for me, I guess. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I ordered 5 units of the R4 (for me and my friends) last wednesday from winsunx, they've just shipped to Egypt yesterday (monday). Expected Arrival date is next sunday 14/1 (fedex priority)

    Guess I cleaned up the place [​IMG]

    Being that it's already the end of the day, it should process tomorrow and ship the next day. I got mine in 9 hours from when it left modchipstore.com, but I'm in GA. I remember someone else being in CA that ordered from them and got theirs in roughly 1 day.

    Will they deliver to your house? Or do you have to pick it up at a post office?

    Order two from winsunx. Placed order 1/4, arrived in Hawaii by FedEx 1/8.

    Should have bought the Chinese edition and did the mod to save $5 per unit.

    Works great. Kids are happy.

    Late!

    No, DHL is infamous for either really early or really late deliveries. I suspect you'll find out on the day of the delivery, and no sooner. Don't quote me =)

    Thanks for the sympathy (and grr for taking my R4s [​IMG] ). But good news! Apparently my card has already shipped and is expected to be delivered at 10:30AM. Considering it was picked up in China on Monday at 6:52pm, that's pretty sweet. As I said, it's my second time dealing with Winsunx, and I'd recommend them to anyone.
