I hope that you are serious7ly wrong! Do you think it would make sense to contact FedEx to verify?

The UI is not as good as iPhone,s but its similar to a Clips. No idea about the Rocoo though.

CLEIOS's review is in the title if you wish to know more. I have How To Use videos on youtube if you want to see it in action

Thanks for the thoughts bowei006.

UI is a non issue for me as I don't meddle much with players except putting them on shuffle most of the time. I can gather that the sound is a step up from the E7 based on CLEIO's review and I did enjoy the E7 sound sig. Looks like the X3 might me one that I will enjoy and will have a decision to make. So, thanks again and will do a little more reading before that.

Yes, agree I see the same being quoted in their forums. Where can I find info on how much would the customs/tax be to be shipped to Boston?

I am feeling a bit reticent about the purchase though because I am quite happy with the SQ out of my clip zip (rockboxed) and C&C BH combo. Hopefully someone at some point will compare the X3 to that combo and tell me that the X3's SQ is at least somewhat superior.

Had to be done.   At least one of my H-200 brethren will have the same setup. wink.gif

DAMMIT! I just saw the coupon code after I ordered. mad.gif Ah well, what's another 10 bucks...

Can't you cancel or something?

 

If you really want the $10, you could just tell their support staff? If its worth it to you that is. blink.gif

The Mp4nation preorder is so darn tempting.

post #2649 of 17128

About MP4 Nation & Fedex customs: If you are in the US you will most likely not be charged any tax, if you are in Canada you may be charged tax, if you are then Fedex will add onto the tax their handling fee (about CAD$10 extra). Other countries you may or may not be charged, you should contact your local fedex or customs office, or better yet ask any friends/family who may have experience with purchasing abroad and using fedex if they got taxed.

 

About MP4 Nation & X3 preorders: We will only sell how many we can order, when we will get the stock depends on FiiO own production of the X3, hopefully we get them sooner than later and please be understanding if there are delays caused by this for the final delivery. Should we sell the amount of units we have requested during the preorder then we will close the preorder sale.

The slow part is really annoying, did they fix it or?

No, that's the usual scam on ebay low prices with high shipping fee, if you look around there are a lot of listing with random item with similar pattern. Dunno how the scammer profited from this but I guess they're counting on people forgetting to ask for refund after months of waiting for non-existent shipment.

This seller has sold 10 units of this!

 

Even you add up the item & shipping cost, the total is only $80 which is still very much less than the MRSP $199.

Are they stolen goods?confused_face_2.gif

Scam: You'll never get the goods. If you see the history of the sold goods, it's only been a few days since he start selling it and most people expect at least 2 weeks to a month or more for the item to arrive (heck, ebay only allow you to open a case 45 days after payment). Hence you will not see any feedback about the goods yet, or that's what the scammer want you to believe.

 

But go on and buy them if you want to experiment, but don't say that I didn't warn you later.
