    Sorry for the dramatic and/or scandalous nature of my topic title.

    My main question is how long does it usually take for DX orders to get to the US? [​IMG]

    My orders usually take about 3 weeks to the U.S.

    Ordered my Acekard 2 and EZFlash 3-in-1 on November 7th and I got them both sometime last week. I'm thinking Wednesday (November 19th).

    Everytime I've ordered, it's taken exactly 2 weeks to the day to get my things.

    I once got my order in 9 days! But I ordered something on back order... I've been waiting 5 weeks and they still haven't shipped it out yet!

    it takes about 2 weeks for me. I dont know why everyone always complain. I guess the bigger the product the longer it'll take to ship.

    I ordered mine on 11/14. It shipped from DealExtreme on 11/17 and from Hong Kong on 11/19.

    The USPS tracking site still says "Your item was processed and left our JAMAICA, NY 11405 facility on November 23, 2008."

    Update-
    Attempted delivery on the 28th to the opposite side of the country. I'll get it when the try again tomorrow.

    Update on my order:

    Apparently my order shipped from DX on the 26th and shipped from Hong Kong today (29th). Hoping to recieve it soon, but this gives me time to rip some of my Dragonball DVD's into a proper format (and file size) for use on the DS screen.

    Does anyone know of any specific size (pixel-wise) that is easy on the file size and still looks good, quality-wise? I'm looking for something in the same quality range as an analog TV with basic cable.

    Also am I going to need Moonshell to run media files or will they play on AKAIO? Does Moonshell have its own Divx decoders, etc?

    Yes, Moonshell is magic and it will do everything that you think it does. It also plays Fallout 3 on max settings, and will load PSP isos so you can play all of those games on your DS.

    I appreciate the sentiment, but sarcasm isn't going to help anyone.

    Everyone here started in pretty much the same boat: they didn't know anything. I'm sure you asked the same type of questions because quite frankly, you didn't know what Moonshell can or can't do. I'm sorry if my question sounded silly but from my point of view, not knowing shit about flash cart apps, it is a valid question.

    In the future, if you don't have anything useful to say to me, please don't post in my thread.

    I apologize if I have offended you or insulted your intellect in any way. Please forgive me.

    Personally, I like ordering from the US. I'm willing to pay the extra money to get the product in a few days rather than two whole weeks. I ordered my brother's EZ-Flash from DX and it took 16 days. I ordered my Acekard from stuffs4kids. 2-3 day was only $5.60 and the cart was $21.00. Of course, I'm just one of those instant gratification kind of people, so I get really antsy when something I really want takes a long time to arrive.

    Man, you guys got pretty fast orders. I ordered an Acekard (and a DSTT as a gift... and about a doozen other items) on 11/20. It took them until 11/28 to get everything together, and it's packaging today. I'm going home for the Christmas break on 12/10, so here's hoping the Hong Kong Post doesn't take their sweet time.

    That's why you order everything seperately [​IMG].

    It's all free for you, and if you don't you could be waiting forever on the last little thing that isn't in stock.

    i am still waiting for my acekard and micro sd and stuff.

    does the hong kong post tracking number they provide you show when it arrives in US? so far the only thing it says is that it has left hong kong post office for its destination.
