I like my new FX-888, but WTF?

by gooden on Sat Jan 26, 2013 11:35 pm

I just used my new Hakko FX-888 for the first time and I'm very happy with it, but what I really wanted was the FX-888D. And that's why I asked customer support on Jan 15 if they would be carrying the FX-888D any time soon. I was told that the company wasn't stocking it and that I should look at the FX-888 instead. So that's what I ordered two days later. Now, based on dates from forum posts, it looks like the FX-888D has been in the store since Jan 20, just five days after I asked about it! I am not impressed!

hi,

we did not expect the new units to arrive that quickly. the purchasing dept. had placed an order and they happen to show up much earlier than expected.

thanks,
adafruit support, phil
