....All orders containing 1Gb and 2Gb boards and kits will be shipped on Friday or Monday the latest.
The 4GB version of the Pi 4 board is finally arriving at our warehouse on Monday, and we expect to ship 4GB Starter and Budget Kits early next wek.
We are also expecting a small batch of Desktop Kits mid next week. We will start shipping orders containing Desktop Kits in the order they were placed (olderst first).....
I received a Pi4B1 and a Pi4B4 yesterday. Granted, I ordered one from Pimoroni and the other from Pi Hut...but I got them and I'm in the US. As to when the US suppliers will get supplies...my crystal ball is out of order.MisterEd wrote: ↑Thu Jul 04, 2019 9:45 pmI see that some people have gotten their Pi 4s rather quickly. I suspect that a lot of these people are in the U.K. What about those of us that are in the U.S. Has anyone gotten there's yet?
I ordered the Raspberry 4 4GB Starter Kit from CanaKit on June 24th. It was was not supposed to ship until August 1st. Today CanaKit informed me that I should get the order by July 20th. Note I had paid for expedited (2-3 business day) shipping.
Lucky you. The nearest to me would be a 8 to 10 hour drive.
So they're doing that nonsense again.Unfortunately Micro Center will not let you buy the RPi4 on their online store. They are available at the stores only.
I see the ship date has changed from August 1st to July 11. The orders will be shipped by order date. My order should be shipped no later than that that since I placed my order on June 24th.binaryhermit wrote: ↑Fri Jul 05, 2019 4:24 amMy order from Canakit isn't supposed to ship until August 1.
Though the reports I'm seeing regarding other resellers give me hope, maybe.
If not, though, I knew what I was signing up for when I bought it lol
EDIT: Although the kit I bought now says ships July 11 on the order page, hopefully that applies to prior orders too. It'd be a not very nice thing to do if it didn't.
Did you have to pay VAT?
I don’t remember seeing VAT on the invoice but it was more expensive than others. I figured they jacked the price due to demand.HawaiianPi wrote: ↑Fri Jul 05, 2019 7:54 amDid you have to pay VAT?
When I tried to order from the PiHut the price was nearly US $70 for the 4GB board only, which must include the extra tax they impose over there. That should be removed for orders from the USA, but I went almost all the way through the order process and the price did not change, so I didn't submit it (Pimoroni removes the VAT early in the order process, but they had no 4GB models).
I tried contacting PiHut about that, but they never replied.
I've always done it that way. It's a way to be sure that you have the current release (pre-loaded SD cards are notorious for being out of date, *especially* when a new board has just come out). And--indeed--given the SD interface upgrade, for the first time I've ordered (and received) A1 class SD cards for the Pi4Bs.
Why? Just use a power supply that works! Like the incredibly cheap official one. Or use a cheap cable!sfong wrote: ↑Tue Jul 09, 2019 8:21 pmIf this article is true (and it seems to be confirmed by Raspberry) you might want to consider an early purchase of the Pi 4:
