It is not really fair
I would still get if it was 299 Euros and thats nearly 450 USD still...but 400 Euros?
Yes, of course i know where to get them for 350 USD including express to germany...but 600 usd ist very very heavy...

Don't buy it.

Are you sure you can confirm this? I only compared the two (1.23b/1.27b) twice. After flashing 1.27b I noticed that the so-well textured bass I was accustomed to is slightly missing. So I re-flashed 1.23b and the bass I was expecting went back. Then re-flashed 1.27b again and thought the bass is not that well textured as with 1.23b. But I left it in 1.27b to see if I'll get used to it (and it looks like I am). Though I'm not sure if I am hearing correctly or just subjectively accusing 1.27b of lacking bass. :p

I can't confirm it myself. Only compared the two twice as flashing firmware to check for sound differences isn't really fun at all. -_\

I've had the X5 for 3 weeks now, and it only occurred once. And there is no stable newer firmware version, only beta's.

Update 2.0 just out, will get this now.

Are there any real dangers of using a 64GB card filled with music to update the firmware?(i can't find my other micro SD card)

Edit: it worked like a charm.

Mp4nation delivers for 349 inc fedex 2 days to germany
It will be my choice for sure...349 USD=250 Euro
I already saw some.guys selling second x5 on ebay for 350 euros and guys buy it like crazy

Actually a used E18 costs in germany more then new one with express from mp4nation

I dont really get why people but so overpriced

Usually german prices are higher and at least same amount but in euros instead usd...and thats still ok...but hey...600 usd for 349 usd device is no joke anymore
post #7813 of 19484
You order 2 X5s and sell the second one for 330 euros...
U earn 70-80 euros and thats 250-75

So you get X5 for 170 Euros

If you order three...you get it free :-D hahaa

If i'd order from america, there's going to be import rights. $350 + 21% of that, + 5% of that = $444

I ordered a lot from asia and if it comes with express packet or priority packet i never had to pay a thing
Of course thats lotto game but worth it
I got my E12 for 88 Euros shipped so instead 150 euros
