    I heard there could be a shortage of LEDs. I have not been able to verify it, though. Anybody else hear of this?

    Stop.

    Please stop.

    It seems Everyone outthere is freaking out about shortages with TP, cleaning supplies, etc...

    Trying to cause a a lame led panics is a poor idea at best, even if it is meant to be funny.

    This is the best news I have heard in over two weeks.

    At the moment my main board supplier seems to be back in business, and I am getting shipments again. At work, most of our suppliers in China are responding again and shipments have basically resumed with very few exceptions. So any supply-chain hiccups from China will be already resolving. Since most businesses should have planned for the down-time of Chinese New Year, I doubt we'll see anything more than a brief hiccup at most.

    I'm mainly just seeing US sources right now that are notifying of potential interruptions for electronics components, but no actual supply issues. We seem to be getting all our orders on schedule at the moment.

    I was thinking the same thing. The virus outbreak and it's spread was made worse by their holiday travels, but then again...an unexpected 2 - 3 week shutdown would have caused way more supply issues if the shutdown wouldn't have been tacked onto the end of their holiday break.

    I'm expecting for many Chinese companies, the weeks following the Lunar New Year holiday is normally their slowest weeks in the year (as many people ordering from them have already prepared and placed their orders to be finished and shipped before their normal holiday shutdown). So when they did return after the extended holiday / virus shutdown....it was probably not to crazy with back orders or new orders coming in.

    PS: Standard SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits are now back in stock.

    It was not meant to be funny.

    It was a little dangerous of a post though. Rumors like this could cause rioting on Pinside!

    Yes but then I will need an ocd & GI board to make it look right, that will cost me here in the UK.
    Maybe one day. My others pins are all led but with ocd and Afterglow boards for dimming.
    Love leds but strobe effect without ocd etc looks bad to me plus it helps heat my room
