Inexpensive shipping from China usually takes between 2 and 5 weeks to arrive to the US. There isn't much you can do about it except wait. If four weeks have gone by and it has not arrived yet you can start to get concerned, but do not worry too much until the fifth week is about to end. I haven't heard of actual transit time taking longer than five weeks.

Edit: AFAIK Once you get a traking number you can't cancel the order as it means it has already been sent out.

I call BS on the OP.

It's clever, it masquerades as a negative comment. Except that 14 days for a laser from China, is actually a pretty fast arrival (and we all know it).

Though this isn't always a good indicator, the OP does not sound like a native English speaker. I'm not buying that he/she is from Seattle.

Further, remember this "review" ?
http://laserpointerforums.com/f40/bl...son-71077.html
It purports to be a comparison between the Arctic, and the "Levin". Except, who the heck knows what a "Levin" is? The answer, is that we all do, except none of us would call it a "Levin". It's the same generic host that we've seen sold by a dozen different companies. Only one company, it would seem, actually renames it the "Levin", and that's laser.to

So, I call BS. This is a slightly-more-crafty-than-average cheap chinese laser re-seller, conducting "pseudo-spam". I would bet that if an admin is able to see IP addresses, and runs the OP's through an IP-geo-locate service, it will come back as being from China, not Seattle.

Yep, another stealth-spam is my bet too. There's a 1% chance that it's legit.

The Engrish sounded my alarm as well but I figure new people may read the thread and wonder about shipping times, so best to put in real info where I can, even if the OP is just another pseudospammer.

Terrible way of spamming though, complaining about long shipping times as a method of promoting business?

Except that this was just a failure of poor Engrish. Look at what he/she said:
"I thought I can receive my order at most one week long. But actually, I just received it nearly 14 days after I took the order."

He/she's saying that it actually arrived, and 14 days after placing the order. That's really good for Chinese shipping, and I think the OP was trying to give their company a back-handed compliment. Like saying "I ordered this 3,000mW 532nm pointer for $80, but when it arrived, it was only 750mW of 532nm. Should I be mad?".

Ahhh, I see. I'm so bad at comprehending chingrish that I thought the OP meant they received their tracking after 14 days!
