$18 shipping for an ilok?

What a joke. I can slip a usb drive into a standard letter-size envelope, put on one a dem fancy 50-cent first class stamps and accomplish the same thing for 5% the cost. Scam scam scam!

Who's charging $18 to ship an iLok?

Where did you buy it? If it was from a retail store and its in retail packaging that might explain part of it. It does still sound like expensive shipping.

If you're talking about the iLok 2, there are quite a few people who've seen their new iLoks either DOA or fail after a short period of time. They are rather flimsy. The body is made from cheap, soft plastic. So, having it shipped in a solid box seems like a good idea - paper envelope, not a good idea.

I'd have to say, though, these things are vastly overpriced, and build quality is shockingly poor.

I guess that's what I get for buying from the manufacturer's website. $50 for a freaking usb drive man...
