So yours came in a "proper" shipping box, surrounded by air-pillows?
The (2) Zat-950A's I received appox 2 weeks ago did not (as I posted above)
Couple of questions- Not directed at you per-se...
Just to get a understanding on why some are getting product shipped in a box proper, and others are not.
During what time period was your order fulfilled? At a slow time of year?
(Evidently it was according to SolidSignal's post above...,http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0#post15195500 either that or the person who packed your order was like me- and is expecting anything shipped to be in a box.)
Was it a single unit, 2 units... (I'm thinking maybe there is a min size requirement (I've shipped stuff thru Fed-Ex, etc before and they do have a min size requirement) So maybe single orders get shipped in a box)
Did you order anything else at the same time necessitating a box? (Splitters, amps, etc.)
Have you placed orders with them before?
Did you possibly mention you are a regular poster here?
SolidSignal in a post above stated they are so busy fulfilling orders due to the digital transition that they don't have "time" to box properly and that they are trying to save the customer money....
(I think it is a simple case of them saving the cost of a proper box, the cost of a couple of air pillows, and labor to "pack". It doesn't take that much "extra" time to throw (2) CECB boxes into a box and a couple of air pillows and tape it up...)
