Speed Editor - Availability

PostMon Jan 04, 2021 5:50 am

When will the DVR + Speed Editor promo be available in USA resellers like B&H and Adorama? I have been on their notify list and as of today, it is out of stock. Maybe BMD will give us some update.

The promo has been available for a long time (I ordered from B&H a few days after the announcement). The unit itself, however, is backordered and will probably take some time to get out there. I got the Resolve-license in a few days in the post.

I pre-ordered from Adorama on November 12th. No sign of it as of yet.

I expect newly announced hardware to take a while, especially with BM's track record of big delays, but the reason it's a little upsetting is that in the announcement broadcast they said it was available at retailers that day. However, none of them even had it listed when the announcement was made, and from what I understand no retailer has shipped any of them yet. I've only seen a few reviewers who got them directly from BM and a handful of people who ordered a license directly from BM's website.

Don't expect to see it for several months. I've seen people post that B&H has said to expect it to be 2 to 3 months, and that was for people who ordered it back when it was announced.

I also ordered from Adorama mid November. I just wish they would provide a license key, charge my credit card, and then ship the hardware when it becomes available in the distant future.

I also pre-ordered in November using Paypal. If you know Paypal, they get the money at point of order and not when the item shipped. So meanwhile, someone has my money and I don't have squat. To get my money refunded, I will have to cancel the pre-order which I will do today. Then when the product is available I will order it again. BMD should extend the promo indefinitely until such time the resellers have quantities ready to shipped.

I just got notice from Adorama that my speed editor and studio key have shipped! I ordered around mid November.
