Thumbs up Rapid Satellite Delivers HD Units

Let's get posts here from those with either tracking #s or units received from Rapid Satellite.

Count me in. I just got my tracking. These guys really came through despite all the harsh crticism from folks on this forum. They've earned my future business for sure.

Given all the hype from BB, VU, VE and all their misleadings, these guys are now legends on this board.

Don't leave us in the dark!
How about some stats... date and time of order? method? (phone or online)

Only with enough info can we all see how it is playing out.

Ordered early afternoon.. online - never picked up the phone actually. I am so glad I didn't buy all the bogus critique on this forum. You guys probably scared off a ton of folks. Maybe it was a self-serving move by some to get themselves higher on the ship list.

I ordered online @ 10:40 PST on Friday April 30th and my order has yet to ship. I have written Nick at RS regarding my order without any reply.

From what I can gather, several people who ordered after I have received shipping confirmations.

10:40 PST is 1:40 EST....how do you know they ordered after you. Did you pay extra to expedite the order?

I ordered at 1P EST

BTW- Nick has responded to all my email within 10 minutes.

BTW- There could be a problem with the web site as my order still says: Sent to Fullfilment

I emailed Nick and he said the tracking number was up on the site (which it isnt), fortunatly he also sent my tracking number. Be patient, it looks like these have started shipping.

Same with me. Still says Pending Shipment and I paid for expedited shipping.

I doubt it was shipped or the website is just not updated.... My credit card hasnt been charged yet.

Seems like there is no order to how they were shipped or updated or anything like that.

Oh well, I'll see what happens tomorrow. :-(

Without knowing everyones order #'s it's hard to know exactly where one stands. If you look at the following post you will see another individual who ordered at ~ the same time I did who at least had there order status change to 'sent to fulfillment'. I can only assume this person ordered after me by looking at the time they posted on page 1 of the same thread. It's possible that person ordered prior to me, thus why I emailed Nick to ask. Unfortunately he has been unable/unwilling to answer as of yet.

There are many reasons why this could be, unfortunately Nick is the only person who is giving out reliable info.

Regardless I'm confident I will have a unit that I ordered on Apr 30th from RS way before my Jan 23rd preorder from VE.

edit: I did pay to expedite the order.

I would be ecstatic if my order status said 'sent to fulfillment', unfortunately I'm still at good ol' 'pending shipment'

Its true. I ordered THURSDAY and NOTHING. Not a thing. I have emails from Nick, Calls from Lou and lots of empty promises and Nick only answered one email. I have only emailed them twice and I have only called LOU Back ONCE and he never returned my call.
My email and call were VERY Polite...I just wanted to know if they go by order number since people who ordered WAAAAAAAAAAAY after me have ones on the way.
RS 690XX and a very low XX at that!!!!!!!!!!
My hopes are with BB now. I have not cancelled but will do if they don't ship today.

sobe_knights ~ Given all the hype from BB, VU, VE and all their misleadings, these guys are now legends on this board.

1st off read my post on this thread: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-v...0&pagenumber=13
They are Lier's! ~ Also read the RS web page as an INSTANT E-MAIL to good Ole NICK! he didn't have the _alls to e-mail or call me. Your the 1st one to CLAIM to have a unit that they shipped, (congratulations!). Being you've just joined the Forum in April/04 and maybe havent followed the demand for this unit on all Forums (Tivo/AVS etc.) The fact that you did as you claim receive a unit with no hassle? then your the lucky one and very rare. But good ole Nick and his staff lost me on a LIE. And you think I'm the only one who's complaining about how RS has treated it's customers, ha ha ha. I'll wait for a LEGITIMATE Vendor that doesn't KNOWINGLY BLATANTLY LIE to the customer. Have fun with your RS delivered HR10-250 (Thanks to good Ole Nick and his wonderful staff)

Nothing but good thoughts! .......Now I'm the Lier!

I went through the same thing with the CSR when I ordered and wrote Nick to cancel because I thought they were being misleading. He wrote me back numerous times to assure me they had stock so I stuck with it. My units are out for delivery as we speak.

I think much of the speculation about RS outsourcing their call center, poor communication between the distributor and RS and the call center is probably true. I'm not sure if they blatantly lied or are liars so much as one hand wasn't talking to the other.

If units begin to arrive for other more "credible" posters than us suspicious-and-part-of-a-consipracy new guys then I guess things will look different. This product is obviously very new and very exciting and I'd bet RS isn't the only one trying to deal with the short burst of demand up front by the Internet forum crowds.

But then, I guess it is easy for me to forgive and forget since I am getting my two units this morning - and you are not.

Just got email from Nick. Seems they accidentally left my new HD TiVo on 7S, and it is now in orbit.

Seriously I am so glad I didn't cancel and still hope to see mine this week.

My order status on RS' web site changed sometime in the past 30 minutes.

It used to say "order sent to fulfillment." It now says "order shipped."

I haven't received a tracking number yet.

Thanks.

Amy

Same thing for me. Our boxes are probably saying their goodbyes to each other before they come to their new homes.
