Lead times

Updated: 12 Mar 2023

Current lead times

At the moment, we need about one week to ship your order.
We still have some backlog of work, which needs to be done as soon as possible to avoid more delays.

Finishing production backlog

We’re about to finish our production backlog: only Dual Floppy Drive sets remain, and a couple of custom orders like original ZX Spectrum sets.
We expect this to be done by Monday 13 March.

Next: message backlog and repairs

In the week of 13 March we plan on:
– Processing all emails – we have a backlog of over a month of emails and Facebook messages
– Keep up with orders and production work
– Continue on repairs – we expect all of these to be done within 2 weeks


In Februari 2023 we finally finished migrating our bookkeeping to a new professional system.
This has taken months of preparation and execution.

Because of this, a lot of work was delayed, such as repair work, and production of Spectranet interfaces.
Spectranet production has been finished last week – the last orders for these will be shipped out on Monday 13 March.

New products and marketplaces offerings coming up!

The finished bookkeeping migration is what we needed to boost to the next level.
I can announce that there will be a lot of new products coming up, and also we will restart listing our products on other marketplaces like eBay and SellMyRetro.

New Sinclair / retro events in the Netherlands!

Then from 2023 I will be organizing Sinclair and retro-computer related events in the Netherlands.
There have been hundreds of customers within the Benelux who most probably are interested in meetups and fairs.

About ByteDelight

ByteDelight is run by me, Ben Versteeg, and some parttime employees.
I started ByteDelight in 2014 and been doing that fulltime since 2018.

We use a semi-automated production line with pick-and-place machine and reflow oven, but still do a lot of manufacturing by hand, which we love.
