Well today is the day! Time for another batch of cases to be released for order!

Anyone from the UK remember the cost of shipping from previous batches? Also how much they paid in Import Fees?

Would have loved to order one but for germany only Global EMS Shipping for 65$ is avaible. I don't need the fast shipping and considering that i will have to pay import fees/taxes/VAT of at least 19% which also applies to shipping cost, this is getting to expensive for me.
Any reason the other shipping categories aren't avaible for germany?

Yeah, I'm not sure why that is. Shipping rates are determined by a separate app through Shopify, so they might only be allowing EMS to Germany for some reason (coronavirus related?).

I thought it might be because I added Germany back to the list of countries we can ship to (after having removed it due to the CE issue), but I also added Netherlands back and checked that and it shows both EMS and regular shipping. So I can't really say for sure what's up.

@Necere dunno if you can help with this... I'm trying to buy the case with my debit card but the site is rejecting the payment: "Card was declined".

First I thought it was a problem with my bank (im from Spain) but then I called my bank and they said the Store is rejecting my card, probably because is debit and not credit card. Is there any other way to purchase the case? Paypal maybe? Thanks!

The cheapest shipping is just as fast as the more expensive one in my experience. I paid about £22 import duty I think.

I waited until it said it was at the depot awaiting import fees payment, and then rang the depot and went and collected it on a Friday, otherwise would have had to wait until the following week for the letter to arrive to pay the charges (it has a reference number on the letter).

Any chance you can fix this?

Make sure the billing and shipping address are the same, or try a different card. If that doesn't work, there's not much else we can do, unfortunately.

I'm looking into it.

Is the final version compatible with optical disk drive, i know that CD-ROM are rarely used nowadays but i would like to have it as an option.
If you want optical drive, you probably shouldn't be looking for itx cases in SFF. Usually, cases here try to save every inch to make them tiny, and CD drive is the easiest thing to give up as no one uses them. You can always buy a usb CD drive.

From page 1:
Optical Disc Drive (requires optional top panel with ODD slot)
  • ODD bracket supports slim slot-loading optical drives in 9.5mm or 12.7mm sizes
You can, but you need to buy top panel with ODD slot, because the default option doesn't include them.

Yes, billing and shipping address are the same. I tried another card but it's the same bank so the payment is rejected too. 😅

It would be fun to see the cd popping up like bread slices from a toaster. 🙃 Also, my work involves lending all digital material in cd-s.

Are you ordering from the same geographic location (i.e., your IP address) as the billing address? Both your bank and Shopify have systems in place to detect suspected fraudulent transactions, and that's one thing that might cause them to decline the payment. You may have some success by calling your bank to tell them to authorize the transaction.

Yes, Im ordering from same location, I don't use vpn... I called the bank to tell them "hey please stop rejecting my payment, it's me trying to buy something". Then after a minute they said its not the bank, its the website/shop/commerce rejecting the transaction...

Probably a Shopify issue... I'm sure that Spain is allowed in your Shopify payment config.

The Ncase M1 supports a CD drive, wether you put a SSD in that space or a CD drive, it doesnt really matter. Using a CD drive would mean you are using the case at its full potential.

it would look fun indeed, i think its an awesome option to have for people who want SFF but still need some form of cd bay. And the way this case supports it is just awesome to see how much hardware you can cram in a small space
