I used to order quite alot of stuff from amigastore in the past and they was alot quicker than this. I even think they used to answer mails. Anyway, it looks like they must be very bussy but are eventually processing the orders.

I received my case yesterday from Amigastore and am happy with it overall but it's not perfect, again the hxc cutout above the Amiga logo is visible and the Amiga badge that it comes with is just a piece of paper so a proper metal badge from ebay would be recommended.

I finally got an email from them today. They explained that they get a ton of mails and must have overlooked mine. Anyway, they are now ready to ship my order. This is 12 days after I ordered the case.

I ordered a proper case badge the same day I ordered the case so I already have the badge. I realise it's just a simple sticker that comes with the case.

I'm not certain but I think they recommend using a sharp knife but I would think a dremel might be better solution?

12 days is a long time to wait but good to see you will finally get it.

Still waiting for mine from AmigaStore.eu, (and other expensive bits too). Haven't heard a peep. Although ironically I had one of those automated emails from them today; Saying how did we do? Rate our store, etc.

I wouldn't mind to much, but I did pay extra for fast delivery.

@betajaen

if are located in South Wales then you may want to try www.AmigaStore.com instead of ASBComputer from Spain. In recent days we have hand delivered a lot of packages in the evenings to our immediate local customers to ensure they get the orders faster. I am sure it will save you a lot of postage costs for anyone in the U.K.

@all

Preorders are in process of being despatched now.

Thankyou AmigaKit. I do live in South Wales, and I have ordered from you before many times, but where you are in South Wales (East-ish) and where I am (West as possible), would take a good 3 hours to get to me.

But I chose AmigaStore.eu because they had a extra few bits I wanted, that you didn't have in stock.

Thankyou though.

Thank you for your feedback. We would be very interested in adding any missing items to our store you needed. It would be great if you could let us know where we need to expand our stock inventory: sales@amigakit.com

@amigakit

Of course.

With the new 1200 case. I ordered a Keyrah V2, 4xEIDE adapter, the latest Amiga Future magazine, some black keyboard stickers and a blow up boing ball.

Apart from the Keyrah and stickers, you have everything in stock. Well - that and the inflatable boing ball. But the heatwave has gone away, so I can't use it now anyway.

As you have noticed we stock 4xEIDE'99 and Amiga Future

We will look into the keyboard stickers.

My new transparent A1200 case from Amigakit is waiting for me at home (Swansea) when I get in from work.

Looking forward to putting it together tonight. Been waiting a long time to get one.

Thankyou. I couldn't find the Keyrah for some reason.

I have to keep the AmigaStore.eu order, otherwise I would cancel. Next Time, anything I buy for the Amiga - AmigaKit it will be.
