    It took more than a month for my sister's Acekard 2i to arrive in Belgium (West-Europe).

    Yeah, lightake is a reliable site. But the package takes long to arrive. Everytime i ordered something, it tooks around 3-4 weeks. [Germany]

    I ordered an Acekard 2i a while back and came in 17 days, including week ends (so about 13 working days).

    I would consult this thread on their forums for how long it would take.

    Considering that, according to their dandy table, the USA takes longer than the UK I would say 17 days minimum (not including week ends)

    Your package will come, and most (if not all) Chinese eShops would take this long so no worries. It would have been quicker, I guess, to order from America?

    Best to hope for 4 weeks, then be pleasantly surprised if it comes earlier or "alright" if it comes in 4 weeks?

    Because they're chinese. Which means they (usually) ship from China.

    Next time, look on Acekard's official trusted re-sellers list. There's a section of stores that are located in the US, they'll ship much faster.

    You didn't know they were chinese? Christ. I researched and compiled a list of all shops that I may buy from. Then checked if they were verified. Checked where they were based. Checked delivery companies. Checked past feed back.

    If you don't do research you will come out lost.

    Yes. They are Chinese. It will come.

    It won't be delayed because of christmas orders, they are mostly all over now. However, they are still clearing the postal links of xmas packages by upgrade delivery types. For example I got standard 2-3 days delivery off eBay and Royal Mail shipped it next day delivery for free - so it may be quicker.

    How is ordering something from ebay and lightake the same? If it's being sent from china during the christmas holidays it will definitely be delayed.

    It is exactly the same. You must realise that online shops like Amazon use Royal Mail as well? Same goes for Lightake mate. When you use standard delivery, that means like Deutsche post and Royal mail - they're all interlinked in every country. They are getting rid of all the backlog from Christmas, which there is little of now, by placing say a second class item into first class to free the system.

    darkreaper, don't listen to him. It'll be ok.

    No it really isn't. Lightake aren't going to use royal mail, they are going to use hong kong air mail or china post. You can't compare lightake and an online shop like amazon to each other.
