Hi,

Just wondering if there was any update on the expected availability of
Platinum Wireless SB2s? I've got one on order from a reseller in the UK, and
am wondering whether to hold out (most of my other gear is a silvery colour)
or to switch my order to a Black one?

Thanks

Andy

I've just been told by MultiTaskComputing that the Platinums are still delayed due to supply problems with the case. "SlimDevices have said this delay may be significant." I remember reading on these forums that the delay could be up to a month.

I've just reluctantly asked for my order to be switched to a black SB2. The phrase "significant" scares me!

Yes, I'm in exactly the same position. I was hoping to get an answer from
Slim themselves to help me decide whether to switch my order.

I heard from a rep last night that they expected to get them/ship in
three weeks time.

Cheers,

I switched to a black case b/s Slim Devices sales told me there was at least a month wait for the platinum.

I was told about 3 weeks for SB2 in Platinum too. Oh well...

Was the 3 week delay for an order placed recently? I ordered a platinum sb2 around March 21st. I was told a two weeks ago that they got a bad batch of platinum cases. Then this past Monday was told there are getting more platinum cases this week and will begin shipping next week.

When was your order placed?

Hi guys,

Any update on when we can expect to start receiving wireless platinum SB2s
in the UK?

Thanks

I spoke with a slim salesperson yesterday. There is a significant delay on the platinum cases. Don't expect anything for at least a month. I've switched my order to black and will be receiving it tomorrow.
