Deal extreme "EMS express"

Hey, first time posting here. I'm wondering if the "ems express" shipping from deal extreme is worth it. Anybody try it?? It'd be 16 bucks for what I'm ordering... it'd still be a decent deal if it doesn't take that long... I couldn't find anywhere on their website where it said avg shipping time for the express thing though.

EMS is usually 2~5 buisness days. it's worthless to use it on a friday.

all of their packages are airmail, so it's already 4~14 days delivery depending on location.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

It's useless as there is no guarantee that the item is in stock. It's possible that you might wait a few weeks for the item to get in stock, then to be shipped to you via EMS. In my opinion it's not worth it.
