    I got it like 12 to 21 days later with first class after the postage. Really depending on their side.

    What did you buy? Flashlights?

    If in a hurry, opt for Priority, which takes about 6 biz days. USPS Express has very accurate/updated tracking, something like EMS but slightly faster....takes only 3-4 biz days. BTW when they sent the items does not mean it is collected and brought to a major sorting facility which in turn would be near the airport and brought onto the next available flight. USPS is very secure, you will not lose your stuff, unless you gave wrong address.

    Sometimes for China stuff, your stuff might be brought to Customs there for checking (cursory type lah) before boarding a flight. So really depends.

    For electronics stuff, can try Aliexpress. Find it really good. I even got 3 refunds and it was INSTANT refund after approved by seller which you can check beforehand by contacting them (also most of them contactable via Live Chat coz same Time Zone). Coz it uses ESCROW, not Paypal protection.

    On the whole Ebay is more expensive by about 20-50% compared to Aliexpress, Manafont, Focalprice etc.

    On top of that, if the seller on ebay is in the "97-99.9% positive feedback" range, most probably, the person is reliable to get a refund if I don't receive my items after a month?
    Even positive feedback 100% is not saying about the shipping feedback, so don't be mistaken. Try it first, don't need to discuss anymore.

    I have no issues with them. My friend sends me stuff from california regularly. It takes about a week by regular USPS.

    Nope. I did not buy flashlights. I bought clothes from US.
    And for HK, I bought some lens caps and an IR remote for my cam.
