I just got an email from RSonline to say that my pi2 will be delayed because of high demand.

Why ?

I checked the stock before ordering, so why didnt they just send it out ?

NOT IMPRESSED,

DONT ORDER FROM RS ONLINE CHAPS AS YOU WILL BE WAITING.

They dont even know when they will be sending me on.

UTTER RUBBISH.

The first production run before the Pi-2 was announced was 100,000 units. That will have been split across all suppliers. The plant in Wales will be churning them out as fast as possible, but the demand has outrun supply for a short while.

RS have estimated a delay of about a week. I can live with that. It allows me to read up on multicore programming under Linux before it arrives.

Update: Having been informed the expected delivery was pushed out three weeks, it has just turned up, 7 days after ordering. Not too bad. The site reckons orders now will not be delivered until the beginning of March.

"All the existing stock of Pi 2 (around 150,000) had gone by Tuesday, but we’re making new ones at a rate of 20,000 a day."

I ordered mine before midday ON TUESADAY and checked the status of stock before I ordered, so that comment is utter rubbish.

Just shows bad service from RS online.

Don't order from them people as you could be in for an unpleasant surprise.

So to add the in insult, my new pi 2 that was delivered later than expected doesn't even work.

What a great service I am receiving.

I think I will be phoning RS Online up tomorrow to give them a piece of my mind and tell the that I expect a working replacement by the end of the week or I would like some compensation for my inconvenience and time wasted.

So I mailed RS Online and got a reply from a helpful lady called Heather who has restored some faith.

She sent me out a replacement which should be at home when I get in tonight.

Fingers crossed that this one works.

I will report back.
