Hi there, sorry for the delay in responding. The "@non.keysight.com" is used for contractors so it is legit. We brought in some help with fulfillment this year because that is definitely not my strong suit :).

I filled out the form and sent it in right away the day I received it, still have not heard anything further. Should I expect any sort of confirmation that the paperwork was received? When are the prizes typically shipped out?

Hi James,

Feel free to ping Renee and confirm, she's likely giving folks time to get back to her and will respond en masse. Prize shipping is a bit TBD right now, we're assessing the impact of COVID-19 on our shipping and supply chain. TBH, I would be shocked if they went out in April.

Hi Daniel!

Any news on the prizes? Are you expecting a delay on the fulfilment? Crazy times we live in so I understand if it will be delayed.

Cheers

I think we're right on the brink of getting them out, I'll check! We were a bit backed up for a while but I think that's tapering off.

Awesome! Looking forward to an update!

Super excited for my scope to come.

@Daned33: Couldn’t reply, you inbox is full.

No news, and it’s July now. Even taking Corona into account, this starts to get a little disappointing. In my business life, I usually try to over-fulfill instead of disappoint, even with the sweepstakes.

Fortunately, I never rely on "gifts", but this makes me wonder about delivery times to normal customers. Bad marketing.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

Be patient.  Yes, more than you have been so far.

Keysight have not - as far as any posts here have identified - failed to deliver prizes.  It has taken an inordinate amount of time in the past and it will likely take an inordinate amount of time again - especially this year.

... but this makes me wonder about delivery times to normal customers.
I don't.  Who do you think they are looking after?

You are getting a freebie.  Paying customers should get priority, don't you think?

Bad marketing.
A tad harsh IMO - but your disappointment is understandable.

"No customer is too small"
Maybe as a suggestion, have an email distribution list where the winners can get notified about their status, once a month wouldn't hurt.
Also, as another suggestion, have an email list for the losers "Thank you for participating. You are receiving this because your name was not selected during the draw. Looking forward to seeing you next year. If you cannot wait, check out the products that were given away (below)". It only takes a little effort and could even result in some sales.

No updates from keysight, but DHL sent me a message informing me that I have a shipment inbound.

Ah super excited.


Edit: Arrived!!  :scared: :box:



Edit2: Doh! Forgot the grounding!  |O Was too excited to turn it on!

Sorry for not being on here more in the last month or so, we had a baby so I took >4 weeks off (yay!). I got word yesterday that a huge number of prizes shipped out so we should see a lot of them showing up in the next few days. We had a few hiccups with COVID and the original person handling fulfillment got pulled off it so we've been doing some scrambling.

Prizes WILL be delivered, I guarantee it. Sorry it's taking so long!

Now the beer scope makes more sense. One last fun project that is also the gift that keeps on giving.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

Annnnnd...

Here's mine, came yesterday. Doing an FRA on a brute force filter.

(Sorry about the poor image quality, not the greatest lighting conditions)

Curve was more-or-less what I expected.

Thanks, Keysight! 
And congrats Daniel! :-+

Congratulations! I can't wait for future friends of your baby embarrassing him or her with footage of your Keysight earrings.  ;D

Any more updates here? We're edging into late September and I have still not received my prize, I'd nearly forgotten about it until something reminded me recently.
