To answer your questions;
Pricing, yes the paymant provider you use will use their exchange rates to calculate the price.
Globalscale.
We only have US versions of the SheevaPlug and OpenRD, we can supply a US cable to go with the Guru's, but we do not have the US slider so the unit can hang from a power socket on the wall.

Hope tha helps you and others.

So to expand on the question a little bit...

Is anyone shipping Plug computers on a timely schedule? I'm in the US and really interested in getting one or two to tinker with.

I see lots of complaints about GlobalScale.

We ship from stock to the US, http://www.newit.co.uk/shop/categories.php normally takes about 7 days to get over to you chaps in the US.
Our GuruPlugs are due into us on Friday 24/9/10, and we will be despatching out on Monday/Tuesday the following week.

Hope this helps you.

Do you have any idea when the plugs will be shipped then?

If you order an item that we have in stock before 2pm UK time, it is shipped the same day.
35  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Globalscale order process - CAVEAT EMPTOR on: September 01, 2010, 06:02:28 AM
you have to wait a couple weeks extra before the plugs are shipped from GlobalScale to NewIT.

Just to point out that normally all our products are available off the shelf, but due to a couple of large orders on the SheevaPlugs we were out of stock for a couple of weeks. Normal Delays (as for everyone) on the GuruPlugs  Sad

This Post is really for New IT customers who do not read our forum.

We have received the following announcement from Globalscale, it is also shown on their website here: http://www.globalscaletechnologies.com/news.aspx

7/17/2010 Guru Plug Server - Professional Upgrade Kit

First of all, we wish to thank our loyal customers who have been very patient and stood by us while we were resolving the “Heat Problem” with the GuruPlug Server Plus!

Further to our announcement about a week ago, we are pleased to advise of the permanent solution to the problem. In the coming weeks (not months), we will be releasing the simple to install “Professional Upgrade Kit”. Part of this kit includes a micro fan with wire harness.  This fan will not only dissipates the heat being generated by the CPU, but also brings the GuruPlug Server Plus back in line with its original specifications. Therefore, those of you who bought the Plug specifically to run 2 x 1Gb ethernet will be able to do so freely and without limitations.

The “Professional Upgrade Kit” together with full instructions, will be provided free of charge on request to all existing users of the GuruPlug Server Plus, but there will be a nominal shipping and handling charge . We will be issuing instructions shortly on how to obtain a kit.

Those of you who receive units from shipments starting in August 2010, will have the kit already installed and you will be able to run all applications to the fullest from the get go.

We apologize for not making this announcement sooner, but we wanted to do our “due diligence” and carry out exhaustive field and thermal tests to ensure you will be receiving  a quality and robust product which captures the “always on eco friendly” philosophy of the “Plug Computer”.

Thank-you once again for your encouraging support while we were dealing with this problem, and we hope you will  check our web-site regularly for details on more new and exciting products that will be introduced in the coming months.



What this means to our customers.

•   For those of you that are still waiting for your pre ordered GuruPlug Server Plus, we have asked that the New IT order be held back to have this upgrade kit fitted before being despatched.  This does however mean another delay, but we feel it is worth it to have a fully functioning product, as soon as we get a proper estimation on the delivery we will of course contact you to advice.

•   For those of you that already have your GuruPlug Server Plus, we are talking to Globalscale about how the distribution of this “Professional upgrade kit” will be handled. We of course have all our GuruPlug Server Plus customers’ details and will contact you again as soon as we have an update on this.


I would like to say many thanks for your patience, and kind comments on how we have handled this situation so far, the end is in sight.

can someone post a link to their product page? I can't find the page to order the power supply. I've e-mailed them, but i've received no response.

https://www.newit.co.uk/shop/proddetail.php?prod=SheevaPlugPSU also on this page is the link to the Installation guide PDF.
39  General Category / General Discussion / Re: WARNING: Globalscale/Fedex European Import Duties. on: July 09, 2010, 11:05:41 PM
We have to charge VAT on all orders delivered within the EU, unless you are a  VAT registered business, that is not in the UK but is in the EU - then you can apply for a VAT Exempt account on our shop, see here: http://www.newit.co.uk/?id=18

We also now sell to customers outside the EU, VAT free (bit of a headache on the paperwork side), this is displayed when you entrer the country of delivery into the shopping cart.

We have been told that these PSU's are  from a new supplier and they have used better components in them.

NO WiF or BT or ULP-Radio inside the gplugD --> too much heat --> External USB dongle for WiFi-802.11b/g/n based on 88W8786U
 
The GuruPlug Display - DevKit is mainly for developers.

So a bit of a change from the advertised product http://www.globalscaletechnologies.com/c-4-guruplugs.aspx
"GuruPlug Display serves up your video, pictures and audio in High Definition with integrated HDMI port, Your LCD TV will become PC instantly by adding GuruPlug Display. It’s perfect for Digital Signage, Media Center Display, Handheld Device screen Mirror, --- Limitless applications."

So do you recommend that this is not suitable for end user use at this time?
43  General Category / General Discussion / New IT GuruPlugs on: May 24, 2010, 09:42:58 AM
This Post is really for New IT customers who do not read our forum.

The first batch of GuruPlug Servers that we had delivered from Globalscale on Friday, have now been despatched.  The following orders are met:

Anyone who ordered a GuruPlug Server Standard – EU Version.
All orders for the GuruPlug Server Plus – EU Version, up to and including order number 1476 (27/04/10).

Apologies if your order is not in this first delivery batch, but we have worked through the orders in the order they were placed with us.

We now have a limited number of EU versions of the GuruPlug Server Standard in stock.


Next Batch

We have been given a date from Globalscale when the next batch will be ready for shipment, this is the 04/06/10.  This will have all our remaining EU Versions and all our UK Versions of both versions of the GuruPlug.

Wouldn't I need to modify it to work in the US, though?

No you would not, we stock the US power version of the Black eSATA units.

Dispite the big red letters, the GuruPlug Display
