Pretty much as the title suggests. Waiting patiently wondering if there's any progress, or whether I should cut loose and head for the black one...?

If it's any use I was in the same position a couple of weeks ago and decided to head over to the dark side. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised at the finish, so don't regret it one bit.

Now all I've got to do is change my amp to match!

I'm sorely tempted, but holding out. The force is strong on this one :D

Trouble is, all my other kit is silver, and given the option - there's no face like chrome.

We're still waiting for silver cases from our supplier. Some changes
were made to the plastic mold to improve the finish, and that has
taken some time. We'll post here as soon as there's a firm ETA.

Sean, would you say that the finish on the new platinum boxes will be better than the SBG platinum you were shipping late last year?

As good or better. The problem was yield - only a small percentage of
the last shipment was really good.

Hi there,

So it's been a couple of months now.... when are the platinum boxes going
to be available? We keep hearing '4 more weeks'.... but as the weeks go by
it's getting harder to believe. Am I the only person left waiting for a
platinum?

I guess the good news is that all the black-box owners are finding the bugs
in SlimServer 6 for us, so when my plati arrives it should run a bit
better... =)

Anyway, I reckon it's probably just a sham, that the real problem is a
shortage of ponies. =)

Just a thought - but are the cases easy to swap? Perhaps Slim could send us
a black box now and then a platinum case when they are available for us to
fit ourselves. I'd be happy to cover the cost of sending the black case
back.

Cheers,
Mike

Nope. Me too.

heh... I was thinking the same thing. :)

Thankfully I still have my old SB1 to keep me entertained while I wait. Would be nice to have an updated ETA tho.

Which leads to a couple more questions.

(1) Is this expected to be a batch of 5, or a batch big enough to clear the backlog? OK, so it will be somewhere in between, but some indication of how you are doing in catching up with the backlog would be appreciated. A variation on this question would be "and what about the next batch?".

(2) If I'm lucky enough to be far enough up the queue to be getting one of these, what's the likely lead time from case arriving to delivery to the (UK) distributor? (IE for assembly, test, ship...)


Feedback much appreciated - ordered mine on 17th April....
