I'm not the OP, but here's one that was delivered today:

This was from B&H. Converting for timezones, it took from 11:45am on 7/11/2009 to 9:40am on 9/11/2009 and there was a weekend in between. Not bad.

If the geographically savvy among you are puzzled about the Ascot Vale (Melbourne) to Mascot (Sydney airport) to Ascot Vale, so was I. It's something to do with the timing of the scan at Sydney, I'm told.

Yep. My experiences have been no different each time. Must have gone through it about 10 times now with B&H. Can't fault them.

Just for comparison, this one used DHL. It arrived here at 15:00 today.

Using Melbourne (Aus) time, 7:42am on 4/12/2009 to 3:00pm 9/12/2009. Not as fast as UPS, it was on a 1-4 business days schedule, so still OK.
