Hi

I ordered a black wireless SB from ripcaster on the 25th Oct and, after a series of 'shipping later this week' emails, I've now had one saying they don't expect to receive any new stock before 23rd November. A quick search of other UK suppliers shows no others with stock either. Has SD stopped shipping the SB? Can anyone from SD say authoritatively what's happening?

I got mine from Ebuyer last week.
At that time they had 37 in stock.

Just checked quantity
They have 19 now

the UK seems to be a prety big market for the SB, and i guess the pre christmas buying season is kicking in. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a shortage for a few months. Same thing happened last year, although the SB3 was still a new product then too. :)

I ordered a Transporter direct from Slim Devices in the US on the 5th November and got a call from the courier in Sydney this arvo - they will deliver it tommorrow. The SB3 turned up a week ago.

Come on down we have plenty of room and obviously better links with the US.

I'd thought about ordering direct from Slim, but didn't want to have to pay duty, VAT, and chance the wrath of the baggage handler.

I ordered from Ripcaster instead.....just in time for the shortage :-( So I cancelled and went with eBuyer.

Just looked at the 'Scan' site, why on earth are the black versions more expensive than the white ones?!

Haven't noticed it anywhere else, must just be Scan.

I would think they would sell more black (matches our LCD tv and stand) so THEY would be cheaper.

I think they should both be the same price and maybe Scan is doing it off their own back.

Could be that the last time they got a shipment of white units the price was X, when they got a black shipment the price was Y. White seems to be in stock with them more so perhaps it isn't as popular, so they by them less often, hence the price is older.

I guess i could ask the Scan guys over on Hexus....
