I'm saying even with no problems that is totally unrealistic.
I hope you're right about OPT being more than happy to refund, because I did cancel and am waiting on a response.
Because that was estimate that were given to them on manufacturing speeds by these suppliers. Which is generally a best case scenario, most likely if everything is working well. However things didn't go a smoothly as initially thought.
I've been following this project for a while, I've read just about ever bit a news for the last 3 years. There has been no sign of deceit, just a ton of mis-understandings. The biggest delay has been suppliers, which prioritize there work load by who pays the most and the Open Pandora Team is a small potatoes.
My guess is the Team asked how long does it take to populate boards or build the cases.. They say it only takes a few days to do such work, which is true.. but what they don't say is they queue 100 higher paying customers in front of the line, so it will take 4 months for the work to even get started. This is the world of Manufacturing, people with money get in the front of the line.
