Fed up with RS.

Tue Mar 03, 2015 11:40 am

So first I ordered a B+ very close to the release date of the PI2 and then decided to change my order for a Pi2. RS accepted the request for a penelty of 25% which was fine with me. Instead of deducting 25% they ended up deducting 50% and are yet to make the correction. On top of that they sent my Pi2 off to Pune instead of NOIDA(my home town).
Just :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

I just got my 2 from MCM (sister company of element14) and it got to my door in 4 days. Talk about fast and cheap shipping!

Day after you posted! Typical!

At least you have finally got it and I'm sure you'll make up for the lost month in no time with your shiny new toy!

They were just building up the suspense so you would be more excited when it came in :)

I ordered my 1st from R&S back in 2012 yes i had to wait too. that is when you could register and then wait for the invite to purchase.. then I was on the list and did wait 5 months but did get mine shipped to the US and they did notify me all the time.. so hang in there dude

I bought this new RPI2 Quad from Element 14
