Hi there, old4570

I've never ordered stuff from KD before, and therefore would like to know:

how long since ordering did it take for your stuff to arrive?

Thanks

Lights out! That's when things get interesting...

Or my question would be: How long from ordering did they take to ship it out of their shipping dock?

Ordered after Christmas , so didnt take very long ..

Unfortunately the XM-L P60 drop in fried the driver as soon as I turned the light on , emitters ok , but the driver is dead .  

So now waiting to see how KD handles it ...

You receive your packages (I envy you).

The postman doesn't arrive here from a looong ago, and I know that people of customs are corrupt. Anyway, I won't blow anything up Innocent

Guys, sorry in advance the jingoist rant and the crappy English language, but this thing touch me really. All ok with you Eze, just pointing.

 

Hey Eze, while understand how you feel  statements like that upset me the most.

When a year ago I start posting in the DX's Spanish speaking forum the general consensus was that all postal workers were thieves and learn that expertize from the corrupt customs officers, his teachers.

All of that drivel by some mod eager to clear the DX's mishaps blaming others .All hearsay nothing more, an internet oax.

The real experience say otherwise, the postal system work fine with some delayed deliver in remote locations, the 'lost' things are very rare , over almost 200 just a little 2 usd flashlight two years ago.

All thing weighing more than a postal card coming from abroad get a internal track number, anyone who touch it must sign, not very easy to 'forget' somewhere.

The feedback in the forum say the same, the rare occasional weird thing just confirm the rule.

The custom officers are doing his work pretty decently, when tax something they want to know the exact sum payed... perhaps they are a mafia but surely clear containers, not ebay's purchases.

Today in the forum the things are more balanced accord to the real experience , that mod was forced to recognized the fact that things do not get 'lost' here.

Today the mailman has the IRT A3 shipped more than a month ago , arrived yesterday.
