First December parcel from computeruniverse 2019: unpacking and product review

The first December parcel from computeruniverse was issued on December 3, and sent on December 10. The parcel went through Stolbishche, a Russian sorting center, convicted for missing parcels and delays. Because of this, the delivery time of the shipment was slightly longer than usual – 20 days (while it reaches 8-11 via Moscow). The parcel managed to go through customs in 2019, which means that it still had a duty-free threshold of 500 euros.

The parcel was added goods totaling 324 euros + shipping. Three people took part in the order: from Vologda, Tula and Krasnodar. They added in the order a low-cost SSD drive from Patriot, a cooler with two tower radiators Scythe Fuma 2, a set of two RAM slots of the Ballistix Sport LT series and a mid-range gaming graphics card Vega 56.
