I ordered from this site: http://cn.element14.com/

The customer service was ok but recently they've gone a bit quiet. I received an email saying delivery would be 14th September, IIRC, but was told to ignore it. Since then, nothing. Now a long way behind the initially promised date.

The Element 14/Farnell customer service have now informed me that the delay will be six weeks on the initial date, or beginning August.

Overall, I think they're trying a little, but the service so far has been disappointing.

Thanx !
At the link u mentioned, i searched for Raspberry Pi and was directed to this site :
http://downloads.element14.com/raspberr ... irect=true
where it mentions the booking is closed at the moment.
I visited this site some weeks back and it mentioned booking will open soon.
Do they accept Union pay cards ?

This morning I received my RPi, very excited.

Element14 were very helpful in the end, and the delivery date, which had been pushed back to September, was substantially improved upon.

I'm very happy with their service and I'm very happy to be getting started. I'd recommend it to anyone in China.

I used cash on delivery, but you can check their options on the site - I would imagine so.

Congratulations :)
If the allow cash on delivery that would be perfect.
What are the contents of the box ?
Do they provide charger and SD card free or you have to buy every thing ?

The Pi includes the board itself - anything else is extra.

And how much did 'just the' Raspberry Pi cost you in RMB ?

I placed my order today with the Chinese Element 14 website where it was mentioned RP will be delivered in 5 weeks but in a few hours i received a call from them saying that they will not be able to deliver it before end of September. I do not understand what is happening. I think damianoloan received his RP in barely 15 days. Is the supply still so bad ? Then why are they allowing more than one orders ?
