Does anyone know when these will start to ship out? 1st time Massdrop buyer don't know how this works really.
They will send an email and message this thread with updates. It normally takes a bit for them to get things out though.
Looks like shipping starts Nov 3,2015. They will email you.
Why so long? Don't they already have these on hand?
I believe they have a load of 480 units yet to come in. Then they pack and label every single unit, 1000 of them. Takes a while.
Perhaps some more handling with the forwarding service for international customers.
This isn't too bad, imho. Some drops take way longer.
The way I understand it is that the 580 on hand was a left over statement from the previous drop that they forgot to change. They have to purchase these by the container and there happened to be 1000 in the container purchased. I think one of the folks explained this earlier a few pages back and better than I can.
Yes, as I understand it there is the clearing of customs (importing) and then the unloading, breaking down and re-packaging for individual units and then they can ship or something like that. It also may take a bit to ship all 1000 too as I don't think they could that in a day.
By the way, I'm told there was a count of 2000 on a previous drop on these.
Patience will be rewarded.
Yep! I'm exited, but I can wait. I am familiar with Massdrop, and if I couldn't wait so long I would not have ordered them :p
