    I've not popped mine open, so I'm not sure which board I have. It's worth it though.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    It's the holiday season right now, and DX is having some shipping problems. Mine took about a month.

    Cheers Matt! Barry reviewed the unit before me though (even though I only found out later), so give him some credit too!

    Well its been 3 weeks now and I still haven't received it. I just would like to know where it is because the tracking says its been in the same spot for 2 weeks.

    Shipping from China always takes a while.

    Mine took around 20 days I think to reach me (Europe)

    It did seem to sit in the same place for a while as well.

    So far no complaints on functionality either, a hell of a lot better than the linksys usb dongle I was using before in any case.
