Has anyone purchased and had delivered a NetGain controller in the last two
months? I purchased a controller in early August when the web site was
saying delivery would be in 6 weeks. Then they told me delivery would be
mid-October. Now they are saying the end of November! That is 3 1/2 months
after I purchased it and still no explanation for the delay!!!! Currently
the web site says delivery in 10 weeks but my experience suggests otherwise.
Be warned.

I could have bought a Soliton for the extra $$ I am having to pay for gas
while I wait.

Hi Tom,
Yes, I ordered one and also had the delay, but got it a little while ago. What I heard (from Evolve Electrics -- who I purchased it from) is that Netgain had trouble sourcing a part and decided to do a slight redesign to use a different type of part. In the end, they also made some modifications that made the controller better (again, I'm foggy on the details).

So, they have been shipping them and are probably catching on orders.

Thanks for the information. I purchased it from EV source which is run by
the same people who make the controller. I would have expected better
customer service. I have had no explanation, and no appologies; just a one
sentence e-mail saying I would have to wait another six weeks, after already
waiting 8 weeks.
