Dang it if they did, I was hoping to buy an xpod mini and double 250gb hard drive it up....
IF these buggers slammed down on production - does anyone out there have one or two of these cases (or this style of case) for sale?
Thanks for any help!
John

I know, but it says they are reopening and no where does it say they stopped producing Xpods. I'd kill myself if they did tongue.gif

we are having some issues with shipping right now, we are trying to figure out what happen to some packages. Once we have that figured out we will reopen, no point in taking more orders till this is done and yes we still make xpods smile.gif.

Change carriers, in my experience USPS and FedEx rough it up, UPS is ok, and DHL is very precise and cheap while being 'gentle' with the packages.

I am still waiting for my xpod - nearly 2 months since the original order now, while I can appreciate the frustration of xport1 in parcels going missing surely not having a tracking system for business post is a little naive? In my case I am building an xbox as a show piece for my customers, I also run a hardware review forum and was hoping to get a good advert on there.

My experience with this purchase so far has left a very bad taste in my mouth and is leaving me in an awkward position when customers want me to build a similar system and all for the sake (as far as I can tell) of using the cheapest method of shipping.

This is in no way a reflection on the product, as so far I have not seen it - hopefully it is so cool that it will outweigh the shipping issues. But when customers are having to wait so long for a product to be delivered it does not reflect well on the company.

cheers
