Just generate address/private key pairs and keep them safe.

Hardware wallets are probably best for new comers, they are handy and they are compatible with many tokens.

For people that can generate and manage their own addresses safely maybe there's no need for a hardware wallet.

I got mine in one week, but as you can see on their website: https://www.ledgerwallet.com/products/ledger-nano-s, they are our of stock.

Currently out of stock. Order today and get prioritary shipping from March 26

So it will take about 2 months to receive it atm. And be careful if you will buy from resellers. (https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/7ofrqf/warning_brutal_scam_guy_buys_a_ledger_nano_wallet/)

When exactly did you buy the ledger where you got it that quickly?  Where are you located?

So you would suggest not buying one on amazon.com then right?  So basically as long as you reset it, then its no problem no matter what?

I bought it before the new year, I don't know exact date. (Ledger wasn't out of stock yet at that time.)
Quote
Where are you located?
Slovenia, Europe.

If you are not in a hurry and you don't need Hardwallet urgently I would suggest you to wait and buy it from Ledger official website.
IMO in a year or two there will be a few more hardware wallets manufactures and their price should go down. (Like USB)

I believe so. Since it should generate new mnemoric seed (private key). But please read more about this, since I'm not sure.

What happens if your ledger nano s no longer works etc?  Could you restore your wallet on a computer if you cannot get another nano ledger s?

Yes, it can be restored. When you initialize your wallet, you will see the list of keywords that you should to record. And you can to restore the wallet using these words.

   They are out of stocks and you can order it, but they will start
with distribution only in the beginning of April. Prices are going down
and I think I can wait couple more months before I buy it.
   I am from Serbia, that is not so far from Slovenia and on their offical
site with delivery price is 100 Euros, not so much for people that like
to be protected.
   Ledger Nano S or Ledger Blue, I have a bit more time before I make my
final decision. Blue is my favorite! Looks better than any Trezor.
