    Anyone know what 'Certified Frustration free packaging' is?

    I would assume any packaging that:

    Doesn't slice open your hands
    Doesn't take half a day to open
    Is like playing pass the parcel with a group of folks with OCD
    Isn't overkill - an entire Euro pallet for a mouse for instance
    Isn't a stick of laptop memory floating in a 2 foot by 2 foot box full of packing chips

    It's rather scraping the barrel of selling points!

    It's an Amazon thing. It doesn't come hermetically sealed into Katana-grade plastic, but in simple brown cardboard instead (usually). Usually the same price as the normal product, if you have a choice, get the Frustration Free package

    Amazon.co.uk: Amazon Frustration Free Packaging

    Its pretty good, though I did have a mobile phone telephone headset sent to me in a package that wasnt glued down and open loosely both ends in their foldover carton packaging, but on the whole its good on the packaging, even if their rep for other stuff isn't great depending on what you read

    For how long though? TP stands for something else! Not sure what's worse, TP or D!
