    It's only 95 cents with free shipping but idk if i should wait the 2 weeks for it.. I'm really looking forward to opening my Wii and making sure I have a DMS chip before I buy a Wiikey :\ But 2 weeks seems like a really long time. Anyone know of a site with faster shipping thats not too much more expensive?

    If it helps, it looks exactly the same as the one I ordered from divineo.cn except red (divineo had blue). Thing is... I paid about 3 bucks to add it to my order. My suggestion...radio shack or, I dont know which state you be in, but Frys electronics, or actually any electronic hobby store ( meaning NOT bestbuy, Circuit city, etc).


    EDIT: hey look at that, New Jersey, right there [​IMG] so scratch the Frys electronics comment, just seek out elect hobby stores.

    My bro bought one.....it works. He had a couple DS's to fix which is why he got it. Actually, he bought the little combo that had two drivers, but it's essentially the same thing.

    I think his biggest concern is time and cost. DX is uber cheap, but long shipping time, places like amazon are much quicker, but its like 98 cents + 4.99 shipping >_>
    Cheapest I found on amazon totalled about 4 bucks (cost+shipping) from those private sellers. Strangely enough, its the red one from DX they are selling XD

    I bought one. Really cheap junk, but if your careful with it, it will do the job. For a buck and free shipping just get it, thats nothing.

    I also ordered the cross and trigram combo from DX on 10/29. And up to now it still not here. Prices there are very good but as long as you can wait.
