You guys really need to stop using shitty DHL Global Mail. Especially when shipping inside the United States. You drop them off in New Jersey and all my packages end up sitting two days in some DHL distribution center just to be transferring to the USPS before even leaving the state. It makes no sense.
+1 to this; when I was living in Erie, PA some years ago, I had a roommate who worked overnights in a DHL warehouse, and had some horror stories about boxes that they found a week later back in a corner, etc.
They don't have too much control over who wants to do business with them. If you would be less ignorant and look into the problem, as in READ THE DISCUSSIONS PAGE!!! you would know why DHL was chosen.
"Hey guys~ this is Lee from Venture Electronics~
I just wanna to post and clear some air regarding the shipping details.
first of all, all MP ordered are already in the Massdrop warehouse in U.S.
therefore, they will be shipped from the states.
and a lot of guys here think that MassDrop is Shit, they are too Fxxking slow.'
Yes, it has taken longer than we expected,
No, plz do not blame massdrop, they paid me in a very prompt fashion, then we were going to ship them via DHL and here it comes the nightmare........
DHL air inspection claim our packages are having magnets too strong to be shipped with them, so we got a couple of days delay with them, then we tried with fedex, same story~
Eventually my forwarder pulled some magic and got them shipped with ups~
So all the delay is caused by the sudden change of HK air shipping policy~
We had been send stuff with dhl all the time in hundreds in the same fashion.
but never this trouble before (well it is also possible that 3000+ units in one shipment is a bit tooooo many lololol)
Anyways, I just wanna say thanks for all your support and a loooooooooot of patience , of course, wanna thank Massdrop, especially Matthew and Arthur for all their hard work to make this happen.
I am excited to hear some feedback here or on head-fi.
If you weren't ignorant and could actually read I'm not talking about the mass shipment from China I'm talking about the individual packages that Massdrop sends out to each individual customer. Using DHL Global Post is dumb especially when shipping within the USA to someplace in the USA. So go back and see if you can comprehend it this time.
My mistake, BUT, they ship using USPS... At least all of my packages have been through USPS.
I have 4 packages from Massdrop on their way to me right now. All were shipped with DHL Global Post. Never in the past 2 years or so being on this site was I ever shipped something with DHL Global Post. Last thing I bought before this bunch of stuff was a M9XX in January and that was sent UPS.
get a life man. why do you have to reply all critic comments? massdrop even don't care that much geez.
I do have a life. I could say the same towards you. I will admit, I was in the wrong on the whole shipping thing, I missunderstood. I care because I like this platform and I will admit I could keep my mouth shut sometimes.
I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. I can understand the frustration now and where it comes from. Hopefully since it's a smaller package someone would rather process it than someone's two thousand dollar TV. Though it could also get lost...
I don't really care it's all good but still using DHL Global Post in the USA doesn't make sense to me. Maybe its cheaper or something.
I don't know much about it but the way this whole drop has been with shipping, i'm assuming overseas shipping and throughout US isn't cheap. I doubt a notable profit was made. I feel like the drop paid for the logistics teams lunch. Given that thought, it would only make sense that MD would choose the inexpensive option. I'm still waiting for my buds to ship.
Well they are sending me items that cost a few hundred dollars with it as well so I think their logistics team made the switch to their service unfortunately. DHL destroys everything. I would never ship anything with them plus their nearest store is 60 miles away anyway so no incentive.
Ah crap... I think I now get to experience the horrors of which you mentioned... I just got the notification.
this shit is still going huh
It was a civil conversation so what's the issue? It has reference to this drop so we aren't off topic either. This is all we have to communicate on this site so this is where its gonna happen.
allright then thank you for your understanding :)
btw guys can you track the shipment? dhl page says its delayed or missing tracking information. i'm overseas buyer, anyone else in same position?
ohhhhhhh the wait~ from my personal exp, it is even worse than before~ since before u have no idea when it is coming~ so u expectation is low, but now , since we all know it is going to out any day and the wait is unbearable~ lololololol, I am so not buying stuff from overseas again ~ (right after I get myself a good looking steam AW as one nice htpc and about 10k other stuff lololol)
guys, hanging in there~ it would be all worth it~ (or not~ lololololol)
Yeah, I can't track the package.
As I mentioned earlier I have multiple packages coming my way with DHL global mail. Some of them took 2-3 days before the DHL tracking even started to work. So I wouldn't worry for the first couple days.
I'm feeling that DHL pain now.
