Re: Pibow (a colourful case for your Raspberry Pi)

My Pibow arrived this morning, and my Pi is now inside it. It's lovely; I keep having to pick it up and fondle it...

Re: Order at april

You should check with Farnell as they may have had your credit card refused (even if it was valid).

Re: Farnell week 02-07-2012 dispatch, no news

Yes I did receive an e-mail about that the product has been shipped. It's been nine days since I contacted them and gave them my credit card details (again). My card hasn't been debited, and I haven't had a despatch email. Every time I contact them they just say "it's been cleared for release". I g...

Re: Farnell Chaos

Regarding Farnell - are you sure they have broken promises, or have they just not shipped according to their estimations? "Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances causing a delay in the supply chain, we can't send your order just yet, but it will be despatched the week commencing 02/07/2012....

Did you actually get an email saying it had been despatched, or did it just turn up?

And yet some people who ordered at the beginning of April are still waiting.

Re: Farnell: dispatched w/c 09/07/2012

I sent an email to the sales address and got a reply after a couple of hours with the bad news. I had to phone them to give them my card details again, though.

I didn't expect them to have problems with my card, but somehow they did. They didn't contact me, I had to contact them.

Re: Farnell week 02-07-2012 dispatch, no news

I decided to email them this morning asking what had happened to my order, and got a reply within a couple of hours saying that my card had been declined. I don't know why that would have happened, but I phoned them and gave them the details again and they say my Pi will be despatched today.

Re: Should I be worried?

You should probably have received the email that many people who had an end of June date received, saying that it will be sent week commencing 2nd July.

Re: Farnell slight delay

Yes, I've just this minute had the same. Having been told previously that it would arrive by the end of June, I'm quite happy with what is only really a delay of a week. Not long to go now...

Re: People who ordered with Farnell in late March...

I got my invitation to order on 3rd April and immediately did so. Got an email on 27th April saying it would be delivered by the end of June. I'm assuming I'll hear nothing more until they actually send it out.
