1 packaging and shipping:
Motorola Media Station:
i bought the MediaStation when it was hard to get here in germany, via ebay, from a very kind fellow jk0381. It took a while to get it here, but that is a normal thing, and as german carriers where charging 50€ (68$) for the Station, he only asked for 27€ (38$). So that was a cheap shot. I ordered 3 of em and all have been in good conditions and i got 15% off after the 2nd one.
The MultimediaStation came in a padded envelope, being surrounded by additional padding material. The only thing that came off a little negative, was the used looking original box.
Thanks to our dear member cuskit, i got the first MIKRADLE of the new "Black Edition". The MIKRADLE is handmade, and i have to thank cuskit for giving it away free, to take part in this side by side review. The MIKRADLE is aviable through cuskit on ebay, and it comes short with $ 24,99. Its all wooden and includes a little magnet to switch on the DROIDS dock application. It came in a very compact and stable box, with padding material. No negatives to find here, except for maybe a missing tracking id.
The Seidio Desktop Cradle
A big thanks here as well to Seidio, a supporting vendor of DROIDFORUMS.NET, for giving aways the Desktop Charging/Synch Cradle for this competition for free. Being packed in a huge FedEx box, containing a rather small box and being surrounded by padding material, the cradle arrived safe here in germany. Also a tracking ID was provided by Seidio, the only one of all contestants who did this.
$ 34,99 is the regular price on that item, available through Seidio Online shop here: click me
