    I bought a manual a few days ago on Amazon, and I just checked the status. Estimated arrival date is 12/18/06 :eek1: :yikes: :yikes: !

    when I get my books for school I buy them off of Amazon cause the prices are ridiculous at my schools bookstore. they do that cause they know you have to have them and most people dont know they can look up the books they need on the schools website. but anyways Ive had them come anywhere from 3 days to 4 weeks after I ordered them.

    It once took USPS ground 4 months to get me a package that was shipped priority (aka, suppost to be here in 1 - 2 weeks)

    Arrived in good shape, but I did have to re-pay the ebay seller I bought it off as she refunded me my money, lol

    I got 4 burned cd's that had been shipped from washington state to Toronto, canada... approximately 2 1/2 - 3 years after they were sent. No explanation at all. Took me a week just to figure out what the hell they were. They were old enough and beat up enough to be completely unreadable in a drive.

    Amazon does not actually stock much of what it is selling these days. It has 3rd parties. So you ordered it Through them, not from them. Some of the third parties are very slow. I had the same problem with Amazon.

    Literal transit time for a computer part from Malaysia was around 8 weeks. They actually sent it out within a few days via the Malaysian Postal Service and the postal service took forever on it.

    Had some cool stamps on it though. :laugh:

    The funny thing is you can order a custom engraved i-pod from china and get it in 2 days to your door.
