Ya, I don't know why for-commission companies like to rip you on EMS all the time. Profit perhaps? The fact that non-Chinese won't know better? Ridiculous!
When I get packages using EMS from China it's so much cheaper and faster. Like I get my stuff within a week or something like that. Not 3 months.
@Bramsworth: I get boxes folded too, but in my case I request it since it comes factory like that. If it was pre-assembled and glued, and they took it apart again with no real care, I'd be pissed too.
EDIT: By the way, people do know that these units are shipped to China in bulk right? Because since these are marked for destruction, there's no real reason to pad, protect, or do anything for them. They just dump them in a box like garbage and ship. Also, if your going non-ems or someone who's trying to profit from you, expect crummy packaging back to you as well. So many places to accumulate damage!
And don't forget, once these arrive in China, black market sellers basically do the bare minimum to get things up and running. They'll hack job it so it barely passes a Red Ring and mark it as 'working'.
