Buyers Experiences - Amazon
Standard Shipping - Within 22 days from Amazon US, more than a month if unlucky ship via "i-parcel Saver Deferred". Within 14 days from Amazon UK & DE.
Expedited Shipping - Probably ship via "i-parcel Saver" with estimation of 10 days but never arrived on time, it is much more slower than Standard shipping due to bad i-parcel services. Highly not recommended. (Applied for Amazon US only)
Priority/Express Courier - Within 3 - 5 days via DHL (Amazon US, CA & DE) or UPS (Amazon UK).
Buyers Experiences - eBay US

USPS Global Express Guaranteed - Within 2 - 4 days via FedEx Express. (I never try this, it base on USPS website)
Buyers Experiences - HMV UK
Standard Airmail - within 2 weeks due to slow process of HMV.com, shipping cost £4.50 per item.
Overseas Courier Delivery - no idea as never try and not going to, the shipping cost is way to high, it charge £37.00 per item.
- HMV.com pending 3 days after item ordered, then another 2 days for item allocation, and dispatch after a day pending, in total wasted 6 days before dispatch.
- HMV shipping charges is count base on item, means you order 10 items, they charge you 10x shipping cost and ship over separately as 10 items. This apply to both Standard Airmail & Overseas Courier Delivery.
