I have just checked RS for availability and they are claiming 19 weeks for dispatch, which seems quite a along time, near enough 5 months.

I registered with RS probably 4-6th March.
Invitation to order received 1st June, ordered 6th June.
My order number was 726xx if that helps anyone.

Both right - it came on Friday at 8am.
I got it working inside 40 hours - mostly trying to get my TV to accept composite AV input, but I wasted some time on trivial matters like food and sleep.

Heh... I think I said that a couple of weeks ago... It's probably what RS and Farnell are afraid of. So much for reducing the backlog...:-)

Very, very disappointed with RS.

Time to order e-mail: May 18th.
Order + Payment: May 18th.
Despatch expected within 3 week(s)
Order 202XX

After more than 60 days and all e-mails ignored, no Pi yet.

I see some people suggesting canceling the purchase, but I have waited too long for this and don't want to cancel it. I want my Raspberry Pi !!!! I have waken at 3 AM local time to press F5 in my computer for this.

Is there anyone from the foundation able to invertvene in our favor?

I have to answer daily questions from my 8 year old about where the Pi is and I cannot.

Hi

Going by previous experience you won't get anymore details until the email that states your Order has been despatched.

What lead time were you quoted?

I ordered 22nd June order 99xxx and despatch expected in 11 weeks (which is about the 7th September).

Cheers

Paul

I ordered on the 19th June (I assume you ordered in June) my order number is 76xxx with a lead time of 5 weeks. That is exactly tomorrow and they are running a few thousand behind the table in the first post.

My advice: wait. You may get an email in the next couple of days. As you can see a few posts above your's aTTila had a dispatch email sent on Sunday regarding an order number of 710xx. They are very close to sending out ours. :D

Is this true?
You ordered June 24th with 103xxx
and I today July 23th with - hold your breath - 1010170xxx - yes that's true, over a billion...
That would mean 1.010.063.000 orders were placed just in the last 4 weeks?
I don't believe it.
I think they use some nonlinear numbering scheme, like a country code in the first digits?
Still, I got "within 18 weeks", not really encouraging...

Vendors generally do not assign order numbers by what is ordered, but for all orders of any type placed with them. Is there a separate numbering system for Raspberry Pi orders? That might be a factor.

They may have switched from the Pi specific order numbers to RS general numbers.

My order number is of six digits.
Where can i see these figures ? Can anyone provide me with these links.
Does these figures represent only UK / europe based sales or worldwide sale ?
And are they from Element 14 or RS ? I am more interested in numbers shown by Element 14.

If you have ordered with RS/Allied you get your order reference number and lead time in the 'order confirmation' email.

Order number 21418

Ordered May 19th (expected delivery 4 weeks)
June 20th - emailed asking if the PI was on the way
June 25th - apologies from rs 'we will dispatch as soon as possible'
July 18th - emailed rs again no reply...

I've had it, while I do understand the mad rush for Raspberry PI's my patience is limited. If you do not communicate people will get very annoyed. If I haven't heard anything before August 1st I will contact the CC company and try to get a refund.

For all of those who's email gets ignored by RS. I filled out a cancelation form (http://authenticate.rsdelivers.com/stat ... tions.aspx), now I know that my order was dispatched (they told me that and asked me to fill out a return form instead).

I ordered on May 16th order no 739x.

I just hope it wasn't lost in the mail.
