    Is it weird that i received my SX Pro in a sealed plastic bag instead of a box?
    I ordered from modchipsdirect.

    Some resellers announced that they have to repack the pro units for the customs or something else.

    Please also note that we never get product packaging for our items as we have had issues before with customs delaying and sometimes seizing items simply due to a logo on the packaging. You will still get everything, just not the paper packing.

    Lazy reseller, they own you a box, and the sticker should be paste to the usb dongle.

    Personally I threw the stickers in the garbage because I think they look tacky, I would have peeled them off if they came applied. I would have done the same with the cheap cardboard box.

    if it's better for customs/cheaper to ship (and quicker to deliver) because it's smaller, i don't care about the box.

    MCD makes 0 sense. We can't get boxes even though others in US got them due to customs seeing name..... the dongle has logo, the jig has logo.

    TOTAL BS on due to blame on customs.... the dongle has logo

    Stargate3ds posted a few pics on fb. They got everything unassembled. So they need to fold the boxes and apply the stickers themselves. So if you are a lazy reseller or just want to get your preorders out fast....

    To blame custom's is just bad. I am so mad I should get mine today from them... and if they shipped it like that with 0 protection in shipping that is just not acceptable. I wish I would have ordered elsewhere.

    They also claim to keep products at a shipping facitily.... that they don't have access to on weekends so they magically get weekends off. I thought facility was true... but they really are just lazy

    It's not your customs that's the problem. It's their customs. Hence why they told the manufacturers not to send THEM any boxes.
    Being a rather big modchip etc. store, they might be on some sort of watchlist.

    I'm in batch 2 they specifically say "Please also note that we never get product packaging for our items as we have had issues before with customs delaying and sometimes seizing items simply due to a logo on the packaging. You will still get everything, just not the paper packing." Sounds like customs to me.

    I figured they would include plastic or something. To mail like that with 0 padding/protection is bad. And seizing due to logo think about it means ZERO sense as logo is on dongle, jig, sticker. They just did not want to pack.

    Yes, but they obviously mean that they have had problems receiving things from the manufacturer, not that sending it out to customers is the problem.
    Customs is weird, they don't always make sense. But it looks like there aren't any logos on the dongle or jig, only on the stickers, which they didn't apply, so most likely at most the stickers would be seized.
    I don't know if it's legal for customs to do this kind of thing, I mean it's not like it's the Nintendo or Switch logo so they can claim "counterfeit". But customs don't particularly give a shit if they're being paid to do it.

    Mine (from modchips direct) came in a small plain box, inside that box was the plastic bag with my dongle in it (as well as packing 'paper' to keep it from being jostled around in the box). It didn't just get shipped with '0 padding/protection'. If you don't know what you're talking about, you really shouldn't just throw accusations around.

    I assumed it was all packing, if wrong I appolgize. I assumed only paper was missing like they said in batch 2 email. Seeing all in a plastic bag vs a nice plastic holder formed for dongle and jig was a suprise.

    My surprise might have caused me to jump to wrong conclusion. No other US seller (to my knowledge) has had same issues on packaging .... I very well could be wrong just still think they just did not want to pack hundreds of unit's.

    I guess you are in right some aspects as I might not be impartial. If I could go back in time would have ordered from someone who did not have issues packing (be it customs or lazy), and one that packed on weekends. If you look at wording on SX Pro it is not unusual for them to push it back (at least speaking from batch 2). It just adds up to bad experience on physical unit. They were great on digital I will 100 percent give them that, but physical I would have for sure went elsewhere.

    Who f*ing cares about a box unless that box is needed to prevent damage? I wonder how much $$$ is tacked onto the price of our already overpriced electronics in general just for all the ridiculous packaging (which itself is just another form of marketing). Give me everything in a plain unmarked bag with no logos and I'll be a happy camper.

    They should have put dongle and jig in the plastic holder. I get wanting to save time... but they were plain lazy. Just like not sticking stickers on the item's. During shipping yes there is paper in a box but the jig and dongle or usb cord could hit/rub each other depending how item is handled.

    And for those saying they tried to save time.... they could start packing at home instead of magical "shipping center" on weekends and get it done right and even ship out earlier.

    If you wan't a complete Pro packaging don't go ModchipsDirect. You can ignore all pictures and information on product page (even dates they tend to push back). They are 100 percent lazy don't expect any weekend movement.

    And people are ordering batch 4 from them for "end of July or start of August"... they took remaining on hand and are selling a extra 25 over their initial 40 ( http://www.modchipsdirect.com/xecuter-sx-pro-in-stock.html )

    Honest if you are MCD batch 4 go elsewhere and you will get entire packaging... and not treated horrible. To not ship to customers waiting and make a special higher on hand is wrong.

    We must do something about the splash screen.
