    RHS:
    Expensive
    Very fast shipping to U.S. (2-3 days)

    DX:
    Cheap
    Almost 1 month shipping to U.S


    Your choice.

    How come DX take so long to ship to the US?

    Because they're located somewhere in Asia. RealHotStuff is located in New Jersey, but it ships to anywhere in the U.S. very fast regardless of which method you choose.

    DX only takes between 7 to 14 days to deliver to the UK depending on the Honk Kong post, and once the item has left Hong Kong it never takes more than 4 days before its delivered.
    The postal service in the US must be really crap.

    1) the UK is closer to asia
    2) the UK is very small compared to the US

    thus faster shipping times would be the result of these

    RHS is the best. Never had a problem with them. Very fast shipping. I order Acekard 2 wednesday night got it monday. They have good customer support. If you live in the US, its the best choice.

    RHS. has fast shipping and moderately good prices
    DX is as cheap as hell but ive heard mixed reviews from them. shipments never being sent out or like swapped items, and just a really long wait time.
