That's kind of why I was wondering... I put an order in on 16 July, and the confirmation shows an expected 11 weeks to ship (been about 7 so far) and the only thing I've heard back was that general e-mail about shipping being delayed for *Pis* due to parts shortage (never knew cases contained processors...and ones in short supply, at that).Mortimer wrote:I ordered a clear case from RS on the 31st August, but have heard nothing since. The email said something about dispatch expected in about 13 weeks, which seems an incredibly long time.
same for me: 21st of June, (905xx), 9 weeks, no answers to mailsDanielG wrote:I ordered Raspberry Pi and a clear case from RS on the 21st of June (92xxx) and the dispatch expected in about 10 weeks ( 2 weeks ago). I haven't heard anything exept one email with a new shipping schedule but acording to that it should been sent.
When did you order it?Mortimer wrote:The RS clear case has just arrived. Looks OK. Only thing it doesn't have is access to the GPIO.
One odd thing I noticed is that there are countersunk screw holes in the base to secure the case down, which is nice. The 'gotcha' is that you have to be able to get to the bottom of the case to unclip it to open it!
Neither did I, but still waiting since July, and no foreseen delivery date, though.Mortimer wrote:I didnt order anything else with it though. I already have the Pi.
I have one of those, too, as well a black one. I got them from MCM and it wasn't until I received them that I was able to locate them on the Farnell or Newark web sites.mahjongg wrote:I have a transparent case from farnell, which is very similar, and was delivered in a few working days.
It too hasn't got a slit for a GPIO cable, but it does have an opening, (funnel) to see the LED's (for the non transparant versions of the case).
