Re: Why RS?

RS sends w/o tracking number (its cheaper). If you ordered in august you really should spam Mike & Vic [email protected] on this board, i pm'd them and I got mine a week later. (using DHL)

Re: RS and Allied Update #6

I'm happy to write that I finally got my Pi; my order 101019703x probably was lost in the mail (due to no tracking number, unknown). So after some cursing, some flaming, and much more, they re-dispatched it, using DHL and I got it today. It was dispatched 3 Jan '13. Its in a pink box, that is, a cas...

Re: Delayed Shipping, But For How Long?

Who is your vendor ? If RS is, they send using regular mail and that is surprisingly slow. As in UK->Belgium 10 work-days;

If some other vendor, you might check if there is a tracking method.

Re: [Q] Where should I order my Raspberry Pi?!

I ordered mid Oktober, still waiting for my dispatched Pi in Belgium (x-mas gift fail). Do not order from RS, if you can cancel, do so, if you have other suppliers try them first. Do not be mislead by the moderators who defend RS, look up the amount of topics about complains about non-RS and about R...

Re: How to make a complaint to the police or consumer protec

Not all dispatch is done by DHL AFAIK. It depends on country etc. Which is the most stupid idea ever. If you send a package over the border and have no way to track it in 2012 your making problems for yourself and your customer. Mine got lost in mail, so now I have to wait 21 working days, then ano...

RS would have had many 10's of thousands of emails over the last few months because of the backlog, it's not surprising they don't have time to personally answer all of them. Remember over the last 10 months, RS/Farnell have sold about 375k Raspi's EACH. 1250 a day! Given many of those will have be...

I understand your rage ... Mine is dispatched and has magically disappear, thanks to the tracking number nobody knows where. I doubt Ill be seeing my 35 euro computer any time soon.

I doubt this is legal, cause I think its more of a gamble game if you get a pi or not.
