The site was already very slow yesterday.
I was hoping their new server bank would pull them through.
It would be interesting to know how many hits they get.

So far the BIG SALE is turning out to be an embarrassing fiasco for Sparkfun.

What a disappointment, still waiting for the fix

Web site crashed twice on me. I was trying to get just a digital Multimeter

Bummer, still crashing, I can get main page but as soon as I try to click on page to order it crashes, yet everytime I get to main page I see sold items going up.


GAAA, my luck of bad still holds

Never made it in. Every time I got a crash.

Worst promotion ever.

Thumbs down

Never worked for me, got partially through and disciovered that items that I had picked out a few days earlier had been remover from the sales inventory.
I don't subscribe to those kinds of games.

I will not make another attempt to purchase from them, ever.

Their Feedback system didn't work all day. I just left them a note that said I was the worst idea ever. I didn't get anything but crashes. I doubt they will leave me a note back.
