Same, I’d buy an 8 gig CHIP as long as it’s not the MLC- I’ve heard that it is slower and doesn’t last as long.

Chip bag - I like that!

Poker: chip trays, chip cases, chip carousels, chip stack

What other cools names are there?


#311

Mine finally arrived a couple of weeks ago!


#312

My package arrived yesterday!

Ordered 7/19, shipment data uploaded 11/1, packaged & processed 11/3, arrive USA 11/14, delivered 11/19. So far everything I’ve tried is working great. I’m very impressed with the all the products and packaging, attractive, fun & functional, very well done NTC!


#313

lol I was hoping for one of the little boxes.


#314

Did they change the box format?


#315

I think only the kickstarter ones came in a box. The current ones come in printed anti-static bags.


#317

Ok, thanks!


#318

wu hu


#319

Exactly! :grinning:


#320

DOH! Got email saying its been delivered! But I don’t have the mothertruckers in my hands!


#321

Well - it (packet of chips) was sitting on receptionist’s desk!

Dangit! The USB wall warts are NOT Australian compatible! I assumed NTC would figure out where you were sending them to and put Aussie power connectors on them! (and not just Australia, also NZ and South Africa - and few European countries have the same power plugs)… Heck - often times when I buy stuff off e-bay they throw in adaptors or include Australian style ones…

No use to me really - I guess I could go out and buy travel adaptors? But what a PITA!
– 1st edit –
Bugger that! $13 for travel adaptors? For a $9 computer? Wouldn’t have bought them if I’d known this…

Anyone else ?
From your experiences,
will it arrives before xmas ? ^.^
Thanx

Ordered 4 mini travel adaptors off ebay for $1.50 including shipping - it will probably take an eternity for them to get here - but better than paying $13 each to make my $12 wallwart work with my $9 computer…

How the CAPITAL F do JB-HiFi and/or Woolworths/Coles expect to sell stuff like this at such artificially inflated prices?

While at the same time, these massive supermarket chains are breaking farmers backs by UNDERPRICING the staples of life like bread and milk!


#324

So are the ones off eBay good quality?


#325

Would not have a clue mate! Only ordered them yesterday - I’m guessing a few weeks at least to get here… then probably get stuck in the Quristmas Queue…


#326

Yeah unfortunately. Well, good luck!


#327

The ebay ones i bet would fail at providing the rated amps, they prop are showing more of a rms type rating… As for how JB-Hi-Fi and other keep their sales… Because of people like me who order online, forgot one item when it arrives and do not want to wait another week for a cheaper part…

Though these days i more or less just use jaycar and i agree that ordering a wall pack from NTC and them ending one that is not for your country… Seems rather “well you should read the small print because we wont tell you that your wasting money” type treatment… Chuck them back on ebay… but i would be to lazy to post them and end up stripping them for parts.

Verifying my order set everything in motion so I should receive
the Chip within the next couple of days ( so they do exist ) !.
Thank you Next Thing Co.
