It was shipped in an envelope!
How on earth is it possible for any Amiga user not named Doomy to be that irresponsible?

Anyway, it looks okay. Have not yet tested it.

It may have been a cost issue. Anything larger (thicker) than this stupid "slot" tool AUSPOST has that the envelope wont fit through is not classed as an envelope, and the postage price goes up significantly. It has to go through with no force, so even a little squeezing (ie a small bulge in a padded envelope) and they will charge as a parcel, not an envelope. What was the postage cost printed on the envelope?

That doesnt excuse at least basic/solid protective packaging though.....

I bought a tablet - main unit only - and I was ensured that it will be sent in a sufficient packaging. It arrived in an envelope :).

So, was it sufficient? :)

FWIW, my Indivision ECS does work, so I guess envelopes are a confirmed safe method of shipping circuit boards ;)
