I ordered a PI on 26th June, they estimated 10 weeks to delivery. Farnells weren't taking orders so I used RS.
I e-mailed them a three/four weeks ago, asking where my order was, they said it'd be dispatch by the end of the following week. No-word, no credit-card sized computer, so I e-mailed again. Shipping order numbers 101001 --> 109000 Is expected 24th 30th September y order is in the middle of this range, so it had no hope of shipping when they said. Currently they have an order backlog to the 2nd December (orders up to 200000) so if you are thinking about ordering through RS, don't.
m'Colleague ordered his through Farnell's (the only other supplier) 6 weeks ago, he has had it for 3 weeks now.
The problem is Farnells will only deliver to the invoice address, so there'd be a hassle to get the thing, otherwise I'd have cancelled already. The RS order is going to my parents, where my card was registered while I was in Jordan.
