I've bought from them several times and they are great to deal with. Never a problem and I get my Cowon stuff within 2 weeks from when they ship which comes from S. Korea to the US. They sell new.

Do you mean Export Privé will send it to you from France?
That's wrong, it always ships from Korea, no matter where you live.


My experience: Fast delivery + I didn't have to pay customs + they set the language of my Z2 to German -> great service!

ok that was my next question how about import duties....
Germany = same as Belgium.....
they are really cheap in pricing compared to pixmania, or iceware....

first I was thinking over J3, or C2 or X7
than C2 = no bluetooth
than X7 = mechanical device with internal HD
so I kept J3 over but now I understand Bluetooth isn't that great (i wanted to use for streaming to my auto radio + putting files on the device) so know the C2 is back in the picture, I will only use it for music, not videos (I have another topic on that one going on)

thanks for the answars !

as i mentioned on the other thread, dont be too concerned about the bluetooth quality, the lack of eq is the main issue (bt only works well on the normal setting).

but dont let people make you think it's going to sound like a crystal set, it wont compare to high end headphones or hi-fi but it's easily good enough for driving with unless your an audiophile driver with a soundproof car.

and thats coming from a highly critical picky guy.

it's a standard car, with a standard radio, with standard noise reduction

so if I can stream, and I can put it louder and more silent, it's alright for me

I just like bluetooth to be able to or stream or put files on the device.......

balancing over to J3 again

I got it in exactly 14 days, and I used standard airmail (without insurance) Very happy with the service, hassle free. Had to pay ~$4 for shipping plus $295 for the 16GB Z2 :-)

I chose Air Parcel, it took 7 business days until it arrived in Germany.

I will assume you received your order by now.

How long did it take to get to you? Ironically, I am in the US, and Export Prive is the only retailer that has a product manufactured in the US that I can find (both the manufacturer web site and Amazon have it oos).

My Ringke case came a good bit earlier than anticipated. I was told 14-17 working days, and it arrived in 12 actual days (8 working days). Amazing, considering I ordered on a Friday night.

Not bad for USPS Airmail from S. Korea.
