    Well, my friend is worrying about me buying the flashcarts. So he wants me to post here asking. [​IMG] He was wondering if customs would confiscate it. i bought from dx. should i seperate the orders and have 1 in each package? He asked in DX site from my comp, so if u see a post there then...yea.

    If you're in USA then you should buy from realhotstuff.com since they ship from inside the country.

    And it won't get confiscated if you buy from DX either, your friend's just being paranoid.

    Nah, your safe, customs won't confiscate it. They are technically legal but could be used in illegal ways.

    It is really dangerous... my last flashcard got confiscated >_<

    No not really, customs don't care unless it's something like a turtle shell or something.

    ive ordered a flashcart from DX (i'm in california) and it did not get confiscated.

    if you order another flashcart next time and don't want to deal w/ that.... order from leetmod, nxpgame or realhotstuff. All 3 are good.

    leetmod has free shipping, nxpgame has cheap shipping, and realhotstuff has great customer support.

    nxpgame has the coupon code 'a2007' to save 5% off your order, while realhotstuff has the coupon code 'SAVE5' to also save 5% off your order.

    i have ordered from all three and had no problems.

    I've probably ordered over 50, it's completely safe.

    Customs let these stuff through no problem. Dealextreme marks the packages as "gift".

    Unless your shipping something questionable, like camels, eggs or mini people than customs generally doesn't look through stuff to tough so long as it passes through the bomb sniffer.
