Well damn, I guess you're rightone hole in your story.......WL doesnt have anything to do with shipping once the package leaves their place. WL doesnt do the shipping or delivering so basically you are saying that chinese shipping is good now :beer:
As far as the WL product, whats the real output of the Arctic? It should be 1W but if it hasnt been tested then its a lie until proven different. Also how is the beam expander? a member just did a review on one at it was all jacked up so WL had to replace it.
