Ordered from DX 10/18/09 (white Dingoo). Having same scenario as Goon. Says "in stock" when I check its status, but on the page it claims its been back ordered. Heavily debating canceling my order if anyone can tell me a faster way to get one. I've been searching for reviews on shipping time concerning different websites, but its hard to find for certain suppliers. I'd cancel from DX in a heartbeat if anyone can refer me to a better US supplier, excluding thinkgeek.com (better as in faster shipping). Paying more doesn't really bother me. Besides, DX looks rather shady when it comes to customer service, and I've heard one too many horror stories from past customers concerning painfully long shipping times due to unresponsive service, or worse, receiving broken stuff. Has anyone used dingoo-digital-usa.com? If so, how was it? Also, Is there a supplier that has them in stock IN the US and sells to US only? I just want my Dingoo... :'(

I hear good things about it, I'd give them a shot. The S&H might be a bit high but that's because it's a self owned business as far as I know. I was reading another website and he had said he goes to drop them off at the post office himself.

DX did back order :-\. I canceled, went to chinavasion, manned up and payed some shipping. That was yesterday, today they said they already shipped it. I'm very relieved.  :)

I know that Mog has had some really good experiences with DX but I don't think I want to deal with them again.

Having to wait a week for them to even pack the thing isn't a lack of patience. Something isn't right with them.

"Typically ships in 2 to 5 days". Not much longer really.

You shouldn't shop at DX if you don't have the patience, but yeah they need to sort it out.

White dingoo's are backordered everywhere, not just at dealextreme. I just hope that I can find a store that sells them for about the same price and has them in stock.

http://www.chinavasion.com/product_info.php/pName/multi-platform-portable-gaming-entertainment-station/ Still has the white ones in stock. This is where I've just ordered from yesterday progressing a lot faster then DX it seems.

I thought Chinavision was some kind of knock off. Guess I was wrong.

It's my first order with them, so I'll let you know how it goes! :P

They seem to be fast though, order started to be processed minutes after it was submitted, it's already packaged and awaiting pickup according to there website, pretty quick compared to DX! Also they charge shipping but ship with well known professional courier company's, so once it has left it'll be here fast! :)

Another good thing with Chinavasion except that shipping is faster than DX: They look at what country you're from and sends you the correct power cables :)

I ended up placing an order at gameyeeeah.com, I opened a ticket with them and asked them if they had the white dingoo's in stock. I got an email next day where they said that they had 7 in stock. So because of the prompt service and the fact that they had it in stock, I decided to buy one there.

The reason the white Dingoo is hard to get is because it's a big hit in asia right now and they are supplying them there to local shops etc first. They have ramped up production in the factory and they are trickling into us vendors now in the USA. I have 5 in stock and another 20 that should be here by Monday. The Black was the same way awhile back couldn't get any to save my life I have about 15 in stock and 20 should be here monday also.
