I registered interest on the first day, got invitation to order on the 17th of may with 3 weeks estimated to "despatch", order number 87**. Haven't heard anything since, but I guess it should be mailed within the next week. I wonder what the deal is with the order numbers, a lot of people with higher numbers than mine seem to have already received theirs?

1. Have you copied and pasted the code, making sure you don't include any spaces at the beginning or end of the code?
2. Have you left it a few hours?
3. Have you deleted cookies?
4. Who did you send the email to?

Hopefully my order 17xxx will then be processed...
UK Charger is showing as being in stock now.
Hopefully a load of orders including mine will now be sent out...
Chargers are now out of stock again.... I was checking and they seemed to get about 50 in with their last back order.
It now says they are back ordered till the 24/07.

It seems moronic that they would only order 50 chargers, when demand of the Pi was so high. Something which they would have known two months ago, which seems to be the time it takes them to order new chargers. Two months is also a ridiculously long time to get new chargers! Are they having them manufactured or something? You could get some from a wholesalers in a lot less time.

Anyway, if my order doesn't arrive in the next week which is the allotted 3 week period and they don't communicate why this is then I will be fairly miffed. I don't mind waiting but there has literally been no communication and there is no way of checking what is going on. Any other product from any other company and you wouldn't stand for this! If it does turn out the way I expect it will and I still don't receive any communication from them, then they can forget any repeat custom. Sort it out!

Sorry, but I can't believe that the UK power supply/charger being sold by RS is any different from a good quality one with a 1.2 amp output purchased from Amazon, or elsewhere.
The selfsame model can also be purchased from http://www.conrad-uk.com/ce/en/product/514691 for £4.99 (plus delivery unfortunately), although they are also out of stock until 11th June.
For those who want one quicker, but at a slightly higher price, there is always Amazon!

Yeah it was a mistake in hind-site... I probably have a charger capable of powering the Pi already but I just wanted one confirmed as working.

Ordered on May 18th, ref 156XX, together with a EUR power supply unit.
I browsed the RS website and ask stock if they have Euro power suppply adapters ...
Not until 07/31/2012 ...

Hope it will not take long and they have also picked one from stock for my order, I saw people on 10XXX and May 17th mail got them shipped ...
Do I have to contact them ?

Please come my wonderfull slice of Pi.

I got my invitation to order on 29.05.12, ordered the same day and got Order no. 535xx. Despatch within 6 weeks (to germany): Too bad, I'm on holiday in 4 weeks for 2 weeks. :(
Should I write an email to RS, they don't need to try to deliver within the time I'm on holiday?

Ordered on may 16th, order No. 73xx. As I understand from the posts here I should have gotten at least a dispatch email. Nothing yet.
What can be the reason for that? Anybody else in the same situation?

Did you order any thing else with the Pi? Power supply or something? Maybe RS is holding the shipment as they are out of stock.

Mine arrived today to Australia.
I'm not exactly sure when I registered my interest but I think it was on the release day.
Placed my order March 17.

I can't wait to get home and have a play!

A correction, for the information of anybody else ordering in Canada: on delivery you also get charged the 5% GST (which is to be expected) as well as a $10 DHL processing fee which is unfortunate for a $35 item but it could be worse I suppose (e.g. UPS). So the final is about $55.

Same situation here, so I canceled my order.
Just wondering why RS accepted my payment, just 3 days after my order cancellation.
Does the refund take 6 weeks?

Good news MacHack !

Did you order anything else with the Pi like Power Adapter ?
Because I did and have some concern about my order.

Et un Pi de plus en France ! Yeah 8-)

Back to work now ... (Can not get Pi out of my thougths, good point indeed ;) )
