Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

Chaps & Chapesses, Vote with your feet! Do as you would do with any other business. If you are not happy with the service, then go elsewhere. Want to get a RPI before the weekend and start playing? You can make that happen. There are loads of places on-line who will supply a new Revision 2 board wit...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

Just FYI - ordered 2 RPI's from Farnell yesterday having cancelled with RS the day before.

Both Farnell units arrived today - revision 2 boards made in UK.

Now that ladies and gentlemen, is how you do that :D

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

I've just made an order by RS, but I spotted this thread now... Should I cancel my order on RS and switch to Farnell :(? Would I get a money refund that way? ... Or shall I wait? It's your call obviously, but why would you wait 3+ weeks when other places have it in stock ready to ship? See : http:/...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

James I think most of us accept your point that this is not a foundation issue. That said, what has been most annoying about RS is not their lack of forward planning (bad though that has been), but their complete and abject lack of communication, and the fact that they blatantly 'lost' roughly 10,00...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

Just got my shipping notice from Farnell. Amazing what a well organised company can do. For those still wanting one 'now' there is a seller on ebay with a few in stock for next day delivery. He has a small mark up, but he is offering revision 2 boards plus a DVD of installation images. I have no aff...
