    I ordered my PC from Redux on Nov 24 2020, and nearly 2 months later the PC still has not arrived. Order #1431, it looks like orders up to around 1400 recently received their PCs after 2 months of waiting, from what I see on customer comments from their social media. What a disappointment this has been, I was hoping to have my PC by the Christmas holiday and now it still hasn't arrived, and after an initial email pushing the delivery date out to late December, I haven't heard anything further from Redux Support.

    It seems to be about 2 months from order to shipping because of the parts shortage due to Covid, Scalpers, and the Governor here in California who has limited companies to a 50% work force on any one shift.

    Linus. I bought a pc from this company due to your recommendation. its been almost two months since I placed my order. I have emailed them many times, called countless times. I really am starting to feel like im getting scammed. I feel like this company is avoiding me. Do you have any idea what's going on here? or does anyone else????

  • Jeremy

    All we can due is wait or cancel the order. They've admitted that they don't have enough people to build the computers which is a result of our Governor here in California who has limited companies to 50% of their normal work force due to the pandemic. Our Governor has developed an attitude of thinking he's the King of California.

    They are blatantly stating a false fulfilment time, soooo many pissed off customers who were deceived into thinking they would be getting their orders within the stated 10 business days.

    I'm still waiting 6+ weeks later. Because of scalpers and China limiting the export of computer parts, plus the Governor here in California has limiting companies to 50% of their workers on each shift. It's a mess all around.

    Hey Linus you should do a follow up with redux because there has been a ton of issues since their launch they are giving people the run around about their computers and aren’t upholding their supposed warranty so many unhappy customers my self included, I only say this because I know you would want you name attached to a company in there current state and after a little research I’m sure you’ll feel the same

  • Jeremy


    29 dager siden

    @Joey Cruz you do understand that it's taking longer than normal to get anything done, especially here in California where they are located because our governor has shutdown most business and limited the number of employees a company can have onsite at any one time. Not to mention the part shortages due to the pandemic. Redux is slammed with orders and is being forced to work with only 25% of their employees during each shift... If you want to speed it up, please call or write a letter to our Governor Gavin Newsom.

    Website claims 2-3 weeks, but myself and a bunch of others have been experiencing shipping delays due to parts not being in stock and them being behind on orders. So realistically, more like a month to 6 weeks... still faster than the DMV though.

    I have seen a few people receive shipping numbers via instragram and twitter. My guess is that they're super behind on orders due the mass influx of orders after their website launched. I was a little worried at first too, but I assume they just had a rocky launch... our orders will come, and when they do, it'll be worth it. And btw, this is the only way I could find to get a hold of a rtx 3000 series GPU, so the wait is worth it imo.

    Am I the only one who hates cable ties in builds? Getting to cables afterwards is terrible, much prefer using hook and loop fasteners, or if you want to save a buck, a twist tie (I think they're about $9/500 when I last got them, shouldn't fluctuate in price much).

    i'd be interested in knowing what their parts discount is as well as how long they take to build each system and how long QC takes, bc a $75 build fee (even ignoring the warranty etc.) suggests: 1. corners are being cut (which doesn't appear to be the case) 2. a big discount on parts bulk orders (possible given DS are behind it) 3. low labour cost (typically how low prices are delivered) 4. slim profit margins (not a bad thing if the business is viable, the customers are satisfied and the employees are paid fairly for their work) 5. other SIs have huge margins (possible, though Dell clearly find finance and warranty etc. to be more profitable than the systems themselves)
