1 day waiting time with Farnell

Thu Aug 02, 2012 12:55 pm

Yesterday I ordered by 2nd Raspberry Pi from Farnell and was really pleased to see an estimated delivery time of 3 weeks...

However I have today received the fabulous news:

"Your Raspberry Pi has now been shipped from our warehouse."

Am I unique, or has the waiting list been cleared?
"am I getting slower, or is stuff more complicated; either way I now have to write it down - stuffaboutcode.com"

A friend of mine has just emailed be with a similar story, so it sounds like the backlog of orders has cleared (at Farnell at least).

Arghh. Ordered my second R-Pi from Allied Electronics in the US on July 13, and it's been "pending" ever since.

Ordered my second Pi from Allied in Canada on June 29 - no status updates, still waiting. Looks like Allied is even slower than their parent RS

go to the farnell website and search for raspberry pi
click order now
select united kindom
click the order now button in the "buisness" box.
you will now be taken to a regular item page for the raspberry Pi (note: you CANNOT visit this by a direct link, there is some kind of referrer check in place) and the stock status will be listed.

Currently the stock status is saying "awaiting delivery" but i've seen it say "in stock for next working day delivery" recently

I can confirm this, it also shows the number available. I saw they had 145 in stock and ordered one on Tuesday afternoon, it arrived through my letterbox the next morning just like Farnell orders normally do.

I looked back later on Tuesday evening and the stock had all gone and the status was "awaiting delivery" .

When I ordered, it said 5 weeks, but I just received it today, 2 days after ordering.

Very exciting, was up and running in seconds and now I'm reading up on Raspbian! :mrgreen:
