Really looking forward to the OGA!!

Unread post by shareef » Wed Jan 15, 2020 4:55 am

I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on one of these! I already own the original odroid-go along with way too many other retro handhelds to list (gcw-zero, gpicase, bittboy, pocketgo, etc.) but the OGA is obviously in a league of it's own!

I'm just wondering how on track the project is for end of Jan to accept orders and ship units? Also, is there some way or somewhere I can sign up to be notified when I can order the unit? Again, just super excited to get one!! :)

If you are in the US I recommend using Ameridroid:

https://ameridroid.com/products/odroid-go-advance

You can order now I believe.

You can order now on ameridroid but they are charging $16 minimum for shipping which is pretty high. I emailed asking about it since I have never paid that much for shipping from them before. They responded and said that it is high because they don't have the final size and weight of the package and they will adjust shipping once they get them in stock.

I'm torn because I want to order and make sure I get one before they are out of stock but I also don't want to get screwed on overpriced shipping.

BTW, I'm in Canada (they ship to Canada, albeit a little pricey).

Not normally no. I have ordered from them 3 or 4 times and the shipping has been reasonable. They are admittedly overestimating shipping on the Advance due to not having final weight and package size. It is unclear if they are going to reimburse the overcharged amount once they ship.

Same question here, not in the US, so ameridroid is not an acceptable answer :D

Hardkernel doesn't do pre-order.

Just for reference, I pre-ordered two units through Ameridroid and the payment was processed today ($133.77). It ended up being ~$12 for shipping on each unit. I noticed that they also increased the base price from $55 to $57.95 from when I ordered. Product page was also updated to say units would ship beginning of February from when I last looked.

I just checked, I was charged $55.95 but I see the site (Ameridroid) has been updated to list the cost at $57.95. Also, are you sure you're not confusing the product page with the HK product page? I remember always seeing beginning of Feb on Ameridroid and end of Jan on HK. I spoke to one of the guys at Ameridroid and he advised the delay for them is to account for the time it takes for them to receive units from HK once they're available.

Thanks for the report. With Ameridroid's price increase and high shipping cost it puts my grand total at $75. A whole $20 higher than hard kernels advertised price. If that's my best option I'm probably going to wait a little bit and see some more reviews.

Has anyone in the US ordered stuff from hard kernel directly and know what they charge for shipping?

I began before Christmas with Hardkernel 4G N2 CoreELEC with ODROID-VU7A Plus
and created then canceled and am still waiting for Ameridroid piece meal.

Shipping and handling: $27.35 USD

I already got refund with no issues.
hope this is clear and helpful.


I broke up order and already got all but 4gb N2 non-CoreELEC without VU7A
Remote and 32gb eMMC was $4.79 S&H
eMMC writer, RTC batt, 12v PS, WiFi mod 5A was $6.55 S&H
Clear Case and delayed BT Mod 2 was $5.41 S&H
Near $17 in 3 parts.
N2 was noted to delay if included as one order so separated and used 3 times as stock was available.

Still waiting patiently for main Odroid N2 for proof in concept over saving time and S&H from Hardkernel.

Order details
Item Price Quantity Total
ODROID-N2 - 4GB
ODROID-N2
4GB
$71.95 USD 1 $71.95 USD
Subtotal $71.95 USD
Shipping (USPS First-Class Package) $6.95 USD
Total $78.90 USD

to me

Hello Lee,
We are expecting to receive our shipment of N2s in the next 2-4 weeks, at which point we will begin shipping them to our prepaid customers in the order that orders were received. Thank you for your interest,
Daniel

You can check shipping for yourself on HK's website. I looked at an ODROID-GO, since they're probably pretty similar in size, and it costs $15 to ship it directly from HK. For the OGA, shipping to me in San Jose (few hours away from ameridroid) is only $9.22. Still a bit high, but still cheaper than HK, plus in the US.
