In the description of the offer they say even though the checkout will show the full price, you'll only be charged the deposit amount right now.

We are only charging the deposit, in your case $100.. You also get the $100. discount, so your balance will be $799.99 plus $15. shipping, which will be charged the same day we ship.

To get a different shipping from Value, I called them. They said, I just need to mention that on the comments sectioni.

For 95124, overnight was $75, 2nd day morning was $50 ($45 for the end of 2nd day).

Please keep us abreast as to when they will be coming in (hourly updates probably would not be a problem!:-) )

Don't worry about the counter. When I first started designing the page I put a counter on it. Between my development, my dramatis personae contributions and vendors approval the counter was at 70 when we launched the offer this morning.

I don't have a total on how many pre-orders have been booked, but it's far below 350.

BTW, doesn't anyone like the Harmony and other special offers?

Are you sure you can't take Pegasus people? I won't tell on you! Do we have any options besides waiting for them to come to stores?

I covet my MX-500. And if my neighbor had one, I'd probably covet his too.

You ain't getting my MX-700 until you pry it out of my cold, dead hands

And I did appreciate the additional 10% discount because I was ordering a dish as well...but then I found I was better off just getting the dish from DirecTV so I cancelled that part of the order.

But I did like it, honest

Harmony remotes are useful for throwing against a wall. I just remodeled, so I really don't want to damage my walls intentionally.

I'd consider another MX-700 or even an MX-800 but you apparently are an authorized dealer for them, so it's really not price competitive.

I see we're on the same wavelength here...though I have to say that as much as I loved my 500, the 700 is so much nicer.

A good deal on the Harmony

I took advantage of the pre-order offer (thanks for getting this process started!) and jumped at the Harmony at that price. If you don't know it, this is a truly wife-friendly device that is activity based, rather than device based.

It sets up the macros for you online. The one I recently configured has made a beliver out of my wife who has disliked every other universal remote I have brought into the house, including the Pronto, Sony, One-for-All and others.

So I have bought a second one with my pre-order.

Question: will the Harmony ship separately? I could use it now, not the first week in April.

Mike

Wow, my wife still spontaneously thanks me for both our Prontos. Why didn't your wife like it? Did you just set it up as a universal remote or did you design a truly activity based config? Once I did that, the remotes were perfect. She even loves showing them off to friends who haven't seen them before.

I love my MX-700. I've thought about Harmony though...

Me 2!

With the TV, DVD, VCR, 2 x SAT-T60's, A/V Receiver and HD-TiVo (Coming......), my wife loves the pronto. I configured it for task based activity, including "Swap's" to other devices and "Dump" current NPL item to tape etc. etc.

It took me some time to perfect, but we're all pleased with it. I'm waiting for it to break so I can get the TSU3000 and those oh so lovely hard buttons!

I love the 3000. I had the original and recently purchsed the 3000. More memory, buttons, much better.

My wife and the remote question

This is a lady who owns her own Jaguar XKE, doing all the maintenance and detailing herself, who owns a floor jack, and a air compressor powered tool array.

All things considered, she'd rather we had a record player, a simple on-off TV, and a clock radio.

Remotes make her nervous. I love her, so I put away the Pronto (for sale cheap to a good home) and fired up the Harmony.

Funny, even the name of the thing is meaningful in my house!

The piggy bank is getting awfully empty. My wife isn't that interested in the HD-DVR250 but she might go for spending another $140 to get rid of all the remotes.

Can I add an order for the Harmony remote after placing an order earlier today for the HD-DVR250 if my wife wants one?
