Ordered on 21.5. "Despatch expected within 3 weeks"

Sun Jun 03, 2012 10:32 pm

Hello
I ordered on 21.5. at RS Components and in the confirmation I got was written:
(Despatch expected within 3 week(s))
Is it realistic that my Pi will get shipped within the next week? Or the next 2 weeks?
By the way my order number is 242XX does this help in any way?
Max

I ordered my pi on May 17 with despatch expected within three weeks but still no news. Did you receive despatch notification by e-mail? Thanks

I received no e-mail after the order. I just came home to find it on the kitchen counter. I recognized RS's all over the envelope. My dinner guests didn't understand my excitment about Raspberry PI when we served cake. I wasn't much of a host last evening. It worked straight out of the box.

I ordered and payed mine on may, 19th, with the same information.(
order reference 20989.
I'm from Belgium ...

Still did not receive anything, not even a mail with an expected dispatch day :-(
I already lasered my "case" for the RPI (I have a CO2 laser machine),
and did also put the linux distro on an SD card, so ready to go, only RPI is still missing for the moment :-(

best regards,
Kris

I too ordered on May 19th, ref 213xx, with a 4 week expected despatch. So far I haven't heard anything, so I trust that "No News is Good News".

In the case of RS orders, though, the phrase 'ordered' is in response to the Invitation to Order.
The Farnell/E14 'order' is time-wise equivalent to the 'Expression of Interest' allowed at RS

As a guide, my Farnell number is in the 1657xxxx range (ordered soon after launch), and I'm still waiting, along with many other s 8-)

On 'day 1' a difference in order timing of a few minutes, meant a different place in the queue of 10,000 ish.

From the numbers and times quoted recently by RS customers, over the past weeks (affected by the Jubilee holiday in the UK),
'RS orders' invited+confirmed in mid May were about 3 weeks to quoted delivery and by the end of the month were 8 weeks: that doesn't mean they're slowing down but that they are catching up on the backlog; letting people know where they are in the queue, with the assured supplies coming in to meet them.

I ordered on May 19th with a 3 week expected dispatch.
My order number is in the range 208xx, and I'm from France.

No Pi received to date, nor any news/email either. God I just can't wait!

Mine was ordered on 18th May from RS and I got an order confirmation by email with the 3 week estimate. It was dispatch on 6th June within the 3 weeks. The email came from DHL and contained tracking info. It has since travelled over 10,000 miles, cleared customs and I am just waiting for local delivery. Seems to work as expected.

I reckon that RS must be expecting a large shipment towards the end of July, as a week ago they were quoting an 8 week delivery estimate... now it's down to 7!

I still reckon Farnell/Element14 are running ahead of them, at the moment, though.

Didn't Mike from RS say the other day that they are running a bit behind at the moment?

Hopefully they will soon catch up though!

This is from Jun 7.

Hi - as far as I am aware, manufacturing is currently on schedule.  Hopefully we'll have more details next week on whether they've managed to get ahead of schedule.

Regards,
Mike

I was sure I had seen it in a reply on here somewhere, but can't remember exactly where... sorry!

The other comments are from my own personal experiences and thought!

I just received my shipment notification from DHL, the 3 week expected departure was only off by one business day (supposed to ship out by Friday June 8th, shipped Monday June 11th.

SO EXCITED.
