Why was this product shipped DHL within the US, isn't the normal shipping just UPS? Tracking is saying it is going to take 8 days to go from NJ to CT, is this normal?

But they beat their shipping date by 8 days! No complaints here!

I kind of suspect that the tracking will show something completely different once it starts moving. DHL's site estimates regular ground shipping to be next day service.
Edit: As far as a regular customer goes, I can't find a way to make it take longer than 3 days if I tried.

Just got my shipping notice, also from DHL. Looks like they're using DHL's version of Smart/Sure Post, which relies on USPS for final delivery. I'm really hoping that DHL is just assuming that USPS will take forever to actually deliver. 9 days for that distance seems wildly inflated.

DHL is pretty terrible. I had something sent via DHL from Newegg, and it took 5 days to get from Edison, NJ to southeast PA. They've got mine not showing up till the 21st with the same destination.
When it's via UPS, it usually gets delivered the next day regardless of the shipping method.
