I ordered mine on Saturday and quickly got a confirmation notice.
They now say they are out of stock. The truth is, they do not stock items so how can they ever be out of stock? I copied and pasted the list of steps as posted on the DX site.

DX wrote:
Step 1 (1-5 business days) Products are collected from our suppliers. Step 2 (1-2 days): Order waits to get packaged. Step 3 (1 day): Order is packaged and shipped* to carrier (e.g. Hong Kong Post, EMSetc). Step 4 (3-14 days): Order is enroute via EMS or Hong Kong Post

The reason TMart ships so quickly is that if it ships from the USA warehouse, they actually have it in stock, and during a process like the above list they can skip step 1 and move directly to step 2. That saves up to 5 days. Then of course if you order from the US and they ship to the US, you get your order in about 5 days total.

I'm not sure if you guys really want to hear this, so be forewarned. I placed 5 different orders from DX back in early November 2013 from flashlight grease and tweezers, to some key chains and different orders Trustfire flame 3000mah batteries, and some random other stuff. It took over 1 month for them to ship my packages. Received 4 of those packages about 2 weeks ago!!! 1 package never made it to me. Holy mother of the flashlight Gods!!! Lets do some math. It took almost 4 months to get my stuff to me. I had even forgot I had ordered from DX to be honest. I was actually wondering who the packages were from when I opened them up, lol. That's 1/3rd of a year people. For this reason alone I will probably never order from DX again!

Good luck to you all who got this amazing deal. But it come's at a price that will test the limits of your mental fortitude and patience, but you shall endure!!! Hopefully you will receive it before the 4th of July!!!

Yeah, I’ve had a similar experience with CNQG/Ric, I got one order months later, and I’m still waiting for some items after 5 months. But this time if they take even close to the end of the paypal dispute window, I’m definitely filing within it. I made a mistake of trusting CNQG due to reviews here and not doing that. Every time I contact him and he gets around to responding, says he shipped or “oops I will ship” and I have to remember another month to check up on this, but I wish I would have filed now and had an end to it. At least they are two smaller orders.

On the other hand, anyone who ordered these should probably sit back and relax and just mark 30 or 40 days on a reminder service/calendar of some kind, because I know DX takes a while too. You gave them an order, and they’ve got till dispute window time to do fill it, no need to worry till then.

VIP treatment…must be very special. Oops

Though, I’m NOT considering cancelling this SRK order in any way, so there’s no benefit for me. :bigsmile:

Here's the US DX warehouse exclusive site for flashlights.

The low mode should be lower.

These aren’t from a US warehouse and nothing is kept in inventory – I just learned the hard way! TexasToasted set me straight. They promise that the items will be available in 48 hours but it doesn’t happen.

Q: Do you have warehouse in USA?

A: There is no US Warehouse, we send US Direct goods from world factory to USA, and have cooperation with INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE to make faster delivery.

What’s really ironic here is that I bought mine with a credit I had from DX from about a year ago. I got the credit after waiting 4 months for 3 – XM-L C10’s. When I finally got them, they turned out to be XR-E’s, even though the logo on the light stated XM-L. It took almost 6 months of additional waiting when DX finally said we can’t ship and gave me a credit.
So, i bought this with 2 year old money and now I’ll have to wait all over again.

I actually believe the pricing was a mistake. The description was for XM-L2’s We would have to wait along time for them to come down.

No, that would be manafont.com that has new management.

Whether or not to buy from DX is up to you. Some of us here have 25+ orders with them and not have anything go horribly wrong yet.

Just wait and see.. if you need the money, cancel... if you're not in a hurry, just wait!

Same story with the Ultrafire m5 a while ago (although that one was much cheaper)

Lol, I'm thinking the right thing to do is get the refund. Do you really want to hang in there for 3-4 months, waiting, wondering, not knowing, and casting doubt on the unknown? DX is probably the worst of all the vendors as of late. I never ever buy from them anymore. Buy the Securitying SRK and do the resistor mod from comfychair as that's what most are doing lately. Can probably have your Securitying SRK within a week, and be much happier. You possibly just saved yourself a bullet!
