Sorry, should have read the threads first... seem like this company has screwed a bunch of people. Maybe KickStarter should step in and uphold there process and rules???!!!!!
Has anyone here NOT received their board from this company. I have tried many times to contact them and they ignore.
Where can I download the book "An Introduction to Parallel Programming"?
Your recurring ad mails made me to write here too. I paid 240$ to you and never received a single board. So stop that brazen mails.
Please be honest Adapteva, is the book I paid for and I'm still expecting 3 years later, ever going to be reality? If not, just admit your failure, make it right somehow and we can move on.
well it seems im not the only one. Never said a thing but I keep getting mails offering to buy the board. well I should have one that I never got. I had to pay a steep price for the delvery to my country and then send a few mails to them no response.
But the mails with offers still come
I also have not received anything... Please help us.
I have didn't get anything
I did not get anything...
Please let me know what is going on
I never received anything! Please help!
Now that the board should be shipped, where can I download the book "An Introduction to Parallel Programming"?
Wondering if the Guide (which I chipped $25 extra for) is ever going to be a reality? Product delays were somewhat understandable but a guide was a selling point for some of us and the reference manual- while nice- isn't what was suggested in the original pitch.
My two are working like little bosses. :-) Excellent uptime, I've managed to build Debian wheezy with ZFS-FUSE support, so can use them as ballsy Raspberry Pis when I'm not playing compute. Interestingly they hate resetting without a power cycle, aside from hat awesome work team!
Just to note, I'm from Brazil and got mine today!!! So many things to do!!!
Have other people in Canada received their boards? I have received nothing so far.
Got my board today. Where can I download the book "An Introduction to Parallel Programming" that I pledged?
Why is it so slow? Played a video in youtube (not HD) and it plays like a picture slide show. Scrolling in browser takes few seconds before the page is scrolled.
Went to the customs today and got my Parallella as well. Thanks for finishing this project :)
Paid UK customs £33 on 2nd May. Still waiting for DHL/Yodel to deliver package a few miles from LHR. 10 days, 5 phantom delivery attempts and still no package - why did you have to use DHL/Yodel... the worst company in the UK
Received mine today.
You did it!! Thank you so much. Its so exciting.
Mine is waiting at the customs, which complain not having invoice, so they refuse to hand it over, because of not being able to bill the VAT
Mine came through to Canada customs free.
Yes, got the link from google.Quick question - can I connect the keyboard directly (with micro USB adapter) or do I have to connect through a USB hub?. Do i need active or passive hub if hub is required?
@murty Too bad about customs. Most people in Canada seem to have gotten their package without the need to pay fees. Note that the guide you are reading is out of date, thanks for telling us, we will delete it from the archive to avoid confusion.Did you find it through google? Note that the link written on the box and on our website is parallella.org/quick-start
Had to pay $25 customs here in Toronto. As per this document http://www.parallella.org/wp-content/uploads/ParallellaQuickStartGuide_rev3.pdf there should two heat sinks in the package one for zynq and one for ephiphany. But there is only one heat sink in the package i received. Can any one confirm how many should be in the package?
Paid the customs fee at the weekend, package has been passed from DHL GlobalMail into the care of Yodel in the UK - so might have it next week, fingers crossed.
#1580 - Boards are received in Europe.
Packing is absolutely correct, board looks nice, lets power on :)
@blais/@harris Thanks! Great to hear that Canada shipping worked out.
@julien @gareth: Really sorry to hear about the DHL issues. The feedback so far seems to have been mixed, but clearly your experience are upsetting.
@savage Great to hear that Parallella is circling the globe!
@trick1..and everyone else Thanks for tellins us (and everyone) that the boards are starting to arrive!
took 5 days to ship in Canada, no customs or duties. #5169
the board looks really well made and is nice looking!
@Gareth Nelson: my experience with DHL easily put them in the depth of the ocean way below standard mail shipping, last time they just dropped the package at some relay point without asking and there was someone home but they never even rang the bell...
Backer #5169 just received a shipping notice!
Received mine today in Sydney Australia. Will have to wait till I get home to power it up.
Just now received mine in west coast Canada, wee! #2891 Board and accessory pack. No customs or duties paid :-) I haven;t powered it up, as yet.
Did any one receive in Canada? If so, what customs duty fee is charged?
Just a quick note about DHL - they're currently threatening me with debt collectors for the import duty on my boards as they appear to charge you weeks later, got a letter this morning threatening me (despite never getting an original invoice).
Be on the lookout people.
I just got mine, but I don't have the time for another hobby project, so I've put her up for sale if any of you want another:
BTW. DHL, to Australia, no issues.
Totally stoked! Well done to the folks at Adapteva.
mini cloud arrived today backer ID#1917.
I know it has been a long hard road.
Backer #2657 has also received his two A101040
Parallella-16 with GPIO Zynq 7020 boards
Thanks from The Netherlands
I just received my shipping notification. My backer number is 3490. I'm looking forward to getting my board!
Backer #1811, I have received the box today!!! Thanks for all the efforts Adapteva! :-)
I have received the shipping notification too.
Mine #2891 finally got processed by USPS, so its in the system.
Got my shipping notification today :-)
mines now on its way!!!
I got my shipping notification yesteday. I am bacher from the EU. #3,214
Update: I just got my shipping notification. #1,956
The parallella is shipping?
I got no information - where can i get my backer number?
I just received shipping notice for #2891. I'm in Canada. My response to the survey was 11/4/2012. USPS doesn't show the tracking, yet. Pledge was one board and accessory kit.
Double checked, definitely backer #2810, thought they were going to be shipped out by backer#? Not that I'm personally complaining! Received the boards today. :) I will note that I didn't receive the tracking email until 2 days after USPS says the package was shipped, so maybe there's an issue with getting the tracking emails out. Also, on the out chance that it helps figure anything out, I pledged at the 2 board level and currently hang my hat in Pennsylvania.
