    FYI, I've had no problems with AliExpress and when I have had to contact the actual AliExpress staff (not the sellers, much like Amazon, they have resellers) they spoke excellent English and gave me service on par with Amazon or any other web retailer.

    I would suggest that if shipping time is the issue, check the box with shipping options as they usually offer at least like 5-6 different options from several companies and use the money saved buying direct from warehouses etc to pay for a decent (non-free) shipping option. I suggest E-Packet when available as it is a result of government treaties (US Post according to your Flag icon) and it is quite cheap for middling fast shipping.

    You do realize AliExpress is like one of the biggest websites in the world right? It's not like something somebody cooked up in a few hours in their spare time. It's a huge multinational corporation, they can certainly afford to replace you 50 cents worth of chinese screws or whatever.

    I bought a display assembly for a tablet that got broken. The seller didn't want to ship again so I called the support line and they gave me my y$150 or whatever back, no questions asked. Other than that I've never had any serious disagreements (any other problems were immediately remedied by the seller, although sometimes with language barriers.)

    You can use NXBoot on jailbroken iPhones or Rekado if you have an Android. Or your Mac/PC.

    I agree with Daveebol though, AliExpress is a good site.

    Probably just had a bad experience with a seller, Ali only gave me half my money back and if shipped back for exchange it cost too much. Anyways I can wait, good things come to those who wait, lol
    Thanx guys

    Buying it on amazon.com isn't going to be of any help in case of returns or refunds, if you look at sellers info they all ship from China. They're most likely the same sellers as on aliexpress, but without the buyers protection.

    I agree, I often see the same sellers (since it is often directly from the manufacturer in both cases) but occasionally with vastly different prices.

    I'll have to disagree about Amazon not being any help.

    Amazon has a buyers protection plan in place which I've had to use a couple times. If the seller does not return or refund the items within something like 5 days Amazon will cover it themselves and reimburse you for the item.

    Using Amazon is actually giving you lots of protection.

    If you return it, you'll have to pay tracked shipping to China, which will eat up most of the price of the item here. They don't offer you anything over aliexpress and oftentimes the items are more expensive than what you'd pay on aliexpress, which makes amazon an all around bad deal for marketplace products from China. And from experience, amazon's buyer protection doesn't always work with marketplace sellers. Personally, I stopped buying anything on that site that is not at least shipped by amazon.

    Nope that's incorrect. I buy 100's of items with them every year.

    If the item is never received you get reimbursed. If the item is damaged or not as described return shipping is by an Amazon pre-paid label. It costs nothing on my end to send it back.

    I'm sure Amazon gets their return postage cost back through the sellers account. No risk to purchase using Amazon.

    You made me doubt, so I went and checked and you are right, since October 2016 (for France anyway), they changed their policy on prepaid labels, they have to be tracked now on international shipping and the seller only has 3 options: refund without return, local address or prepaid tracked. I was operating on outdated info.

    Not a problem. Maybe this will open the option up for others to feel more secure about an Amazon.

    I ordered mine for $19.65 on 5/8 with an expected delivery range of 5/30 - 6/20. Maybe I paid a couple extra dollars more then other places, but I like being assured that if anything happens I'm not out any $$. I did pick a seller that had a very high POSITIVE feedback rating rather then a lower cost with a lower seller rating.

    Here's a link to the US Amazon site: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=rcmloader+one&ref=nb_sb_noss_2. Looks like most don't show the Switch Logo on the unit being listed right now. The one I picked out had the Logo on it in all the pictures and I kept screen shoots of them just in case.

    An update to my previous posts. My RCMloader OneB ordered off Amazon on 5/8 arrived today, not too bad in just under 3 weeks. (Picture Link: https://1drv.ms/f/s!Akr7GOOfRVh8wE33t47X_AeFgY4f)

    It seems legit and cycles through the colored LED software options like it's suppose to. I'll plug it into my computer tonight at home and see what happens. I'm no expert on this so I'll just have to try it out and see how it goes, not even sure I'll load anything onto my Switch yet. It's a 3.0.0 that's been sitting on the shelf waiting for the Switch scene to mature. Right now I'm still playing with the Wii & finishing up my WiiU. Perhaps this RCMloader is the kick in the pants needed to move up to a modern console.

    Not sure if what I received is a knock off or the real thing. Sure looks real, just the RCMclip looks different being it's pinkish. If I have any issues when I get around to using it I'll let you know...

    I doubt it's a fake. However mine came with a much shorter USB cable and a grey jig. I'd assume that they're just using different parts though, since when I ordered mine in December the pics showed a black jig.

    This is better than the SX Pro imo, and I own both. The SX Pro is smaller, but that's about it.

    You may have to select the payload with the + button first, but after that it will always load it.

    It may just default to the only folder you have, but I'm not sure.
