Actually, I have had bad experience with them a year+ ago, but my recent orders were quite fast!

received my stuff in 2 weeks after being sent... not bad at all!

Just hoping they will actually send it....

again: Im not in a hurry, I will wait a week orso, and see if they got them "in stock" or not... still enough time to cancel.. not eagerly waiting for this light.. just an interesting light for a good price, thats all.

I just got my notice today. I will hang in there, it is 2 year old money anyway, from a store credit. The reason I still had it all this time as there was never a compelling reason to order anything from DX. Yes, to me, they are THAT bad.

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!

Why would you wait that long?  Give them up 45 days like any other order with any vendor and make sure you file a dispute before the window closes.  If they've shipped or not is their problem.  They're contractually obligated to fulfil orders within the time provided by Paypal orders.  They could cancel on their own if they wish.

The low mode should be lower.

What leaftye said.

We still might get it. It would not be the first time.

DX is definitely playing games with this one, receiving that msg over and over again asking if I’d like to cancel and order something else.

interesting..if you order 2 or more it’s free shipping.. but alas it’s output of so-so for few bucks more you can get securitying and probably more brighter than this light,but the price is definitely worth it as it has XM-L2 LEDS in it..
it’s like buying the LEDs and get the host for free Wink
hmm.. anybody ever tried using modified securitiying driver on these light? Big Smile

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

If I am not mistaken the securitying is 3 x XM-L T6 light and this is a 6 x XM-L2 T6 light…. If the driver is modifiable it should outperform the securitying easily.

We don't care anymore if the stock driver is modifiable or not, stick an 105C FET in there and let it rip.  You can fit the 105C FET driver is just about anything (check out the OSHPARK projects thread).  The bigger issue is whether or not it has an actual shelf instead of just the MCPCB hanging there.

Go on chat and ask if they’re available before you order. I did that with another order and it shipped next day.

Hmmm, very curious order processing at DX.com.

I received the ‘awaiting restock’ mail on March 23&28th. Today I checked the status at the portal and it sais:

Quote:
01/04/2014 22:13:03 Full Shipment Your order has been fully shipped. 01/04/2014 20:47:25 Order Processing Order is being prepared for Shipment.

It’s a fact that the inventory administration and communication of DX is a mess. I also ordered 4x NCR18650A’s that were advertised on the website to be shipped within 72 hours. This is 2 weeks ago and I am still waiting for response on a ticket I opened almost a week ago. :~

You bolded wrong part of the sentence. I guess this is what you meant:

Well it's a good thing I didn't cancel the order as DX now show it as shipped, with tracking number.  I ordered 2, so I can keep one stock for comparison and muck around with the other.  Foot in Mouth

I don’t see how they can price xml2’s that low. Pretty crazy price even if it doesn’t have a heatsink.

Just a reminder- DX does not have a US warehouse. They have a special shipping arrangement on some items that are supposed to ship to the US faster than their regular shipping. But everything is still shipping from China.

I didn’t know that it wasn’t in the us. Is this the same with tmart? I got my hd2010 from tmart within a week.
