    Did DHL get taken over or merge with home delivery network?

    As that would explain something right there

    No surprise to me it was delivered by DHL.

    Few years back I ordered a Antec 902 case, after waiting a week for it to arrive pretty much in the same condition as that card.
    (posted picks in the forum when it happened back in 2009)

    Yep DHL were the ones that delivered it.
    Out of all the items I had purchased from the company over a 6 year period, It's the first and last time they sent something to me by DHL.

    Those fans look great, and the crushed power sockets.
    The bits falling off it can be glued back on, I'm sure no-one would notice.
    The card doesnt look at all bent either.
    Some neat camera tricks and it will make a fine review.

    DHL vacated the US. They're still a major carrier for the rest of the world...

    The people I know that work/worked for UPS seem to have stories quite the contrary to what you're saying.... I've even seen their handling of "fragile" packages.... I've watched UPS employees at the local UPS depot throw around boxes very clearly marked "Dell"....and heard the monitors break... Of course, not as bad as FedEx where I've had packages come pre-opened with pieces of general purpose scotch tape holding the remains of the box together....

    DHL is still in the US. They're just not as big here as they use to be. Whenever I have to order something directly through EK, that's who delivers me my stuff. I know what Hilbert is going through, I've had it happen to me on a few occasions.it's like they stack the heaviest things on top of the lighter boxes.

    I've had it before in Australia from our Postal service.

    Ordered the Canon Wireless Flash Trigger and the outside box was fine, but the inside box was completely squashed along one side.

    Luckily because the trigger is so small it missed destroying it.

    But the person had obviously had something heavy fall on it, and squashed the **** out of it. And then pushed the box back into place so it didn't look too bad. But obviously couldn't get and do the same for the Internal box. So you never know until you open these things.

    To me it looks like it was done on purpose. Like some disgruntled employee purposefully took out his angst on that box or it was run over with a tow motor..etc. Negligence perhaps, but accidental, no way.

    Card was definitely run over by something heavy. The amount of force this card took looks enormous.

    Oh I feel your pain.

    Had something similar happen to a 7970 that was shipped from SystemMax corp to me, US to CAN, via UPS. It arrived with damage, the case grill was bent, wasn't sure if it would power on after straightening it out. Since you couldn't peer inside if any PCB components were dislodged.

    Worst of all the order wasn't sign on delivery. It was dropship. I later inspected the PCB since I did a watercooling mod on it, and everything was intact.

    I always make the courier wait until I've opened the package and inspect for damage they always get pissy about it but here in NZ it's the law if ask them to wait they have to wait and if they p off while I'm in the middle of opening and inspecting they can loose their job...

    and the only thing I've ever received damaged to the state of not working was an HDD that had an surface mount resistor knocked off the package had been sent non sig so I found it sitting on my door step when I got up.... Luckily I was able to put my soldering skills to good use and fix it with an scavenged part from a dead drive
