To be honest, I have never once read of a single account of any laser, or any product for that matter, purchased from DX being confiscated by US customs.

Well  . . .  my first order from DX was the 200mW green pen style laser and guess what ?  Customs got it in CA. and that was sometime last year.   I received paperwork if I wanted to claim the item and pay some fees and the court costs.  I never responded. [/quote]


Damn, that would discourage me from buying from them again. Did you ship it EMS too?

Hey, it happens.  I was lucky and actually accidentally found the information about not shipping with EMS. Otherwise I probably would be in the same boat.  ::)
