    it seems like my only options for shipping a chip from them is either very cheap 2 week shipping or very expensive overnight. is there any other options as far as just ups ground? that sucks if its the only way to ship

    I would assume if they do not offer it in the shipment option then it is not available. What chip are you wanting to get from them?

    Plus what country are you in?

    Divineo is not the most trusted site to buy a Wiikey from. Wiikey itself took Divineo off their reseller list because they sell clones. I have seen numerous threads of members having trouble with their Wiikey that they received from Divineo.

    I would recommend using the below site to get your Wiikey.

    They offer 2 day air for $9.95 I have used this site for all my Wii and Nintendo Modding needs and always received my order the next day after the order was put in. So not only is the 2-day fee cheap I received my stuff with 1 day instead of 2 day.

    Here is some more information on the site and Wiikey prices...

    Wii key chip = $27.95
    shipping 2-day $9.95

    $40.85 with tri-Wing + 2-Day shipping

    $37.90 just for chip + 2 day shipping

    You can also buy a wiring/soldering kit as well with your order.

    http://www.modchipstore.com/Wiikey-Nintendo-Wii-modchip-mod-chip-Cyclowiz-beater-16430.html

    If your choosing Divineo due to the Clone Wiikey chip for $7.99 I would highly discourage you to take that path.

    To many threads have been started for clone Wiikey problems. Yes some say they have bought 1 and it works great. But I have seen very few threads that praise the clone Wiikey.

    Guess you get what you pay for when buying a clone chip.

    Just hope if the official update of Wiikey does block clones the manufacture of the clone Wiikey will backup the product and make an update for those that have a clones.

    From what i understand you will not brick your wii if you have a clone. The chip just wont work and you will have to remove it. You get what you pay for mate. Buy a quality product, get it installed by a pro and protect your investment. think of how much money you will save if you do it right. Think of how much you wont of you cheap out.

    larrylje is right Modchipstore.com is by far the best and the fastest i have ordered all my modchips from them over the years and not once had a problem, as for divineo, I wouldn't recommend the chips but I just ordered the Crystal Blue XCM LED Case for my Wii from them, used standard Air and it got here in a week, as of EMS shipping yes it is expensive yet its one of the best international shipping methods out there and being divineo is based in Hong Kong thats the price but onece again just go with modchipstore dont go looking for the deal you get what you pay for
