I have been looking into buying a devise to help with my cold storage, im down to these 2 to choose from,
Can anyone give me a few good or bad points on each, the extra security card with ledger is a good and bad point IMO.
Help me make up my mind, i want to buy today,
Thanks,

Edit: Just read tha there is a delay on shipping with the Mycelium Entropy, does anyone know if there talking about the orginal or the HD device they wanted to make?

Entropy should be shipping VERY soon. From the Dec 25th update:


Hello. First of all, we hope that you are enjoying the holidays. As you know by now, we, sadly, were not able to be a part of your gift exchange.

We finally received an update from the factory on Monday. They let us know that production is still going, but that they won't be able to ship before the 25th of December (today). At this point, we were told to expect them any time from 26th onward, without any explicit dates. As a result, our CTO had to cancel his holiday vacation, and is spending it in the office, waiting just in case they arrive some time within the next week. Some of our developers are staying home so they can be available to help package and ship as well, and I'll still be around to give any updates, help with processing and placing shipping orders, and to listen to any concerns, complaints, and angry disappointed letters should anyone feel like directing them our way. To give a better estimate for the time, here is the process once we get them in the office: our devs and CTO will be flashing the units (we have a rig to do many at a time), packaging and sealing them, and then when they are done shipping them in bulk to our distribution centers. Flashing and packaging will probably take a day or three, and shipping another few days. From there, they will ship directly to you. I don't know exactly how long flashing and preparation will take, because there are a lot of orders to process and items to pack. At this point, we have 915 units ordered to ship. We tried to expedite the manufacturing process by asking the factory to do a 1000 unit production run as a rush job, instead of the 5000 as we initially planned, and ordering the remainder for a later delivery. Lucky for us, our preorder numbers were below 1000, so everyone should be covered. Unlucky for us, this rush job still ended up being not fast enough.

Anyway, that's all the information we have at the time. Again, we are sorry we couldn't be a part of your holidays, but we hope that they are full of cheerful and happy celebrations for you

We got an update from the factory that manufacturing will be finished Tuesday, then it's assemble, package, and ship.

I have been in email and PM contact with Rassah and last week was told they were still having problems with their manufacture.
He thought they were at the stage of being put into their metal cases.

I can't wait for mine and there has been a long delay but Rassah has been really good always answering my emails regarding status of the Entropy device.
Lets hope shipping in a week or 2  Wink

I received my entropy today. It's perfect. It's a major milestone in true cold storage.

I'm in California.

I heard the first batch was incomplete, and 200 more units are expected from the factory.  Most orders are shipped in chronological order, so yours will most likely come out of that 200-unit batch.

I maybe want to order a Ledgerwallet. Can anyone recommend the device? My fear is, that it's too small, so I could lose it..

All of these hardware devices are small, can be lost, or could break. Make sure to have a backup.

The Ledger wallet comes with a lanyard and a key ring and other various ways to attach it to something. I attached it to the security card (after punching a hole in the card). I don't think there is a problem with losing it.

I like the Ledger wallet. The security card is a little inconvenient, but it is cheaper than the Trezor. Also, shipping cost is high so you might want to buy several at the same time with some friends.

I recommend buying 2 HW ledger wallets (they have a Duo option). One for main, the other as a backup just incase (you can copy the data from 1 ledger wallet to the other to make replicas holding the same amount of your bitcoins).

HW ledger comes with a security card. IMHO, it's bullet proof. It requires a plugin for google chrome to work, but from my experience using it, you can rest assured that you won't get your bitcoins stolen.

The ledger wallet can even be replaced if you lose them or break them.

From all the features it has, i would recommend this to anyone.

I haven't used the others, but this one met my expectations in all areas, and I really loved the google chrome plugin interface.

They added the ledger wallet application for pairing (I believe its for the security code, correct me if im wrong);

I bought both of them, I believe they server different purposes, entropy real cold wallet, ledger quick way to hold some coins and spend them anywhere with a computer or cellphone.
