Mon May 28, 2012 10:49 am

I got conformation from Farnell last month that i would receive my Pi during the week starting the 28th of May. It is now that week and I have heard nothing from them since. Should i be worried? Thank you

Short: Nope you should not.

Longer:
It says that the shipping is expected to start the 28th. So just relax and wait. I had the similar but last week (21st of May). But I got my first email ,that the Pi was dispatched, the 23rd of May.

I received the same date for shipping from Farnell. I received an email last week though saying that it has been shipped? What is the status when you log into the Farnells orders? It should say processed if it has been shipped

Give them a chance... we are barely half way through Monday at the moment, and I am sure they don't despatch over the weekend. ;)
Hopefully you will receive it before the end of the week though, but do bear in mind it will probably be sent out by 2nd Class post!

Yeah, it was dispatched on Wednesday and got here on Thursday, (to Swe). Missed UPS on the Thursday so I got it on Friday.

I had the preorder email ages ago (before 18 April) but not heard anything since. I have forgotten any login details, have asked them to send me my username but that has not come through either. Delivery dates for orders placed before 18 April were meant to come the next week. Is this bad, who can I talk to?

HELP!

I'd give it a couple of days before getting worried.

A colleague got a delivery date of week beginning 21st May, got the dispatched notice on the Monday and received it on the Thursday.

I am also due to get mine this week, got a dispatched notice on Friday last week and it came today.

I was told delivery would be week commencing 28th May. Got an email from Farnell on Thursday 24th May saying it has been dispatched. Came home yesterday to find said pi stuffed through my letterbox (28th May). Sent 2nd class in a jiffy bag. Pi is fine on inspection but haven't fired her up yet. The box it came in may have save it.

Quite happy with the experience I got from Farnell despite all the problems with the pi. I felt I was kept informed by email although they were just relaying what I had heard from the forums days earlier.

I have given it more than a couple of days, we were meant to get emails a week after the 27th April and all I have got was an email saying it would come before the end of July. Still no email on 29th May

Anyone (in the UK) who ordered on or before 7th March should receive theirs by the end of next week.

Element 14 have also said that ordered placed before 18th April should be received by the end of June, so it looks as if they are expecting a few large shipments over the next three weeks.

You will get an email about a month before telling you the week you pi should get shipped and then you will get a dispatch when you're pi has been dispatched. I think you have quite a long wait. I ordered mine in the 3rd of march and only just got it.

I also ordered my Pi on March 3rd but haven't heard from them since, when did you get the dispatch email?

As they are shipping by Royal Mail 2nd class, that sounds about right!

If we get the order confirmation a month before that means I won't get mine for the end of June. I'm really confused by all this. I expressed an interest with Farnell early March. A few weeks later, got an email inviting me to pre-order (with a T-shirt thrown in) which I duly did. This was on 31st March. I've heard nothing since.

On the Farnell community there is a message from 27th April that says :
We’re excited to report that our next shipment of 4,000 Raspberry Pi’s has now left our manufacturers in Asia and will be on their way to customers next week! We have a further 12,000 Raspberry Pi’s due to arrive by the third week of May. We will have regular volume shipments thereafter. By early next week, all 110,000 customers who have ordered with element14 - wherever you are in the world - will receive a confirmed delivery date. As previously communicated, this will be no later than the end of June for those who ordered before April 18th.

Are they running behind? Have I misread or misunderstood something? Is my ORP number not really an 'order' number? :?

I am just saying what happened to me. I would be surprised if you did order in March that you would not get it before the end June.
