you can order it at Conics

Direct from Japan offer free shipping. And if you calculate all, Conics will be more expensive. Also, DFJ have office in europe in case of warranty.

Well I ordered a Kohjinsha SX3KP06MA UMPC tablet from
My Bank sent them the money on the 18th and they are still claiming not to have recieved the cash.
I got my bank to contact the bank in Japan who confirmed that they have recieved the money on the 19th.
However between the 20th and now I have recieved at least 5 emails from them claiming not to have recieved the money yet.
My advice is stay away from these scumbags.
Most of the people who post claiming to recieve stuff from them are in fact the same guy, goes by the name archer loic.

Direct from japan have a very good reputation since long time. For sure, bank transfert can sometime take somes days, but you can be sure than direct from japan will never stole your money (And i personnaly ordered, like many other people from this shop in past). did you see Direct from japan feedback on ebay ? more than 3700 positive and great feedback from unique transaction.

EDIT**-They now acknowledge reciept of funds and say they will ship my tablet ASAP.
Apparently the bank transfer didnt have my details attached.
To be fair they have been fast with responding to my emails and have done so regularly so I will give them the benifit of the doubt and time will tell.
I have updated the thread on my forum to reflect the new cooperation I have recieved and will post a review of the sx3 when I get it.
