My Flex 5000a arrived today in the mail. Trust me I was worried about Canada Post Expidited Parcel Service instead of a courier with overnight air, but alas the Flex busted the budget and I didn't have the extra $143 bucks for the courier.
Anyhow, exactly a week from the order date the package arrived and I rushed home from work to beat the closing time for the local village post office.
Outer packaging looked good.
No strange sounds when handling the package that might indicate breakage.
So straight home for a quick unboxing video and an evening of setup.
