I waited a few, and tried again.   I got Chris this time instead of Syed.    Chris said no problem... he's apparently putting me in now for an order.  lol.    Isn't that amazing depending on who you get?

 

  Update:  Done, ordered.  ESD 4/13/12.

All,

 

I believe the inventory was transferred from China to the US fulfillment center in NC.  This facility serves the US market, but probably not Canada.  Inventory on this part is limited.   I don't understand the longer lead times (May and beyond) unless the system is just drawing on a default lead time.

 

Actual shipping time should be less - perhaps a week or less - time to clear the CC order, and a day or so to slap a label and put in on the shipper's truck (UPS).

 

This was supposed to be on the web by today, but now there is a freeze on some updates due to an IT upgrade.  This may set us a back several days putting on the web.   I would advise you to make use of the phone or chat to get your orders in now - don't wait for the web.

 

I appreciate metalpower's comments as well as others that we should stock / sell more of these. 

 

Regardless of current inventory, it couldn't hurt to have orders on the books - it would clearly show demand, and if we could have enough of a case, perhaps we could ask our sales and supply chain teams to look at this again and see if we could get more stock and perhaps split it up to other countries / markets.  (Canada, Germany, UK, etc).
