Hi Cudahy,

I too pre-ordered from the Good Guys (#26). I spoke with one of the sales managers last night. Right now, they expect their first shipment to arrive at the warehouse on April 10th. I was told that I'd be able to pick the unit up in the store on April 11th.

He did say that there's a pretty good possibilty that they could get some units in earlier. Hope this helps.

Anyone else order from a Chicagoland Tweeter store? My original target was mid-April but my sales guy told me 3/29 three weeks ago. Hope it is true! Just wanted to see if anyone else in the area ordered from Tweeter.

dmk1974,

I too was told 03/29 about 2 weeks ago. When I went to pre-order yesterday I was told 04/15 (which seems more realistic to me from what I'm hearing/reading).

I'll give it to Tweeter, they are pretty consistant about what they tell their customers. Much better than BB/CC. Now if it's accurate...that's another matter.

Why would VE get 200 on March 30th while Good Guys doesn't get any til April 15th? They were both taking preorders in January.

As promised on the previous page checked my Tweeters (nasty suspicion it is the same one that KC contacted!) and they are still saying April 15th.

Britin....I contacted the one in Central Park...Fredericksburg. When I asked about the HD Tivo, they asked "which one?". Apperantly, they have both the Hughes unit and the Samsung unit in their computers scheduled for delivery on April 15th.

I think it's wishful thinking that the VE preorders are going to start going out end March.

Tweeter, Goodguys, and Ultimate are all giving 04/15 as the date they will be getting the units. I would expect that this is when VE is going to get them as well.

Go check the super-big-preorder thread...things are very quite at VE.

Well maybe VE got his pre-order requests in well before the big chain stores. I am going to laugh when VE starts shipping on March 31st!

Quiet in the big super pre-order thread? Are we talking about the same big super pre-order thread? The one that's growing over 100 posts a day?

Monday Robert from Value Electronics had a conference call with DirecTV on the subject where his exact schedule was confirmed. It was talked about in the big thread. It was pretty clear what is coming when and how it's getting shipped from where.

Time will tell, I guess. Less than 8 days of time at this point before some people will be receiving their units.

Didn't mean the post was quite (far from it as you have noted). That damn thread is so overwelming!

Make no mistake about it...if you guys get your units in as promised I'll be green with envy. Hell, I've got a good amount of envy already due to the fact that I didn't find this site (and the pre-order information) sooner so that I could have had a decent spot on the preorder list with VE.

I sure hope VE sends out the orders as promised or you guys are gonna crash these message boards.

So I don't have to search thru the thread can you give any highlights if he posted them?

Thanks

I pretty much summed it up in my post here; the big pre-order list has a summary of the latest news at the end of it, and that's usually easy to find in the thread -- go to the very end of it and it'll generally be within the last 80 posts (which would also be on odd numbered pages if you view with your settings configured for 40 posts/page).

Hey Doug,

Question: Have you or anybody else gotten the paperwork for your preorder from VE?

When I preordered from Tweeter I didn't have any paperwork. Will I have do the DirecTV agreement when I go pick the unit up?

Sorry if this has been covered in the super-big-jumbo-strong thread.

VE is also taking some shortcuts by meeting the shipment in CA and shipping that day to customers. The "Big Guys" will have to wait until that shipment is then sent to their warehouses then to the stores. I'm not sure how long that will take but I imagine it takes at least a week maybe two.

Most likely irrelevant, without payment in full. As I documented in the big thread.

I'd say most likely relevant, but with a few caveats...

1) He was the very first to order. And the very first to order a lot. Good Guys was second, and somewhat later. Then a bunch of folks jumped on the bandwagon much later.

2) Hughes (and later DirecTV, when they took over responsibility for distribution) was also aware he wasn't just ordering to stock, he was ordering because individuals had ordered. THis is the signficant difference and I think the important one. It is far better to have the units in the hands of end users than to be sitting on a shelf. This helps generate more buzz for the product and helps improve demand later on for it. Having some unkown people possibly complain they can't get one in a store versus having over 1,000 real people complain "where's the damn unit that I bought" makes for an easy choice of who to satisfy first.

3) It is known that Hughes (and now DirecTV themselves) has been in contact with those dealers/stores who pre-ordered and has sought info about the units being pre-sold or being intended for distribution to stores, so that's a pretty good indicator that the ultimate destination of the initial shipments was important for some reason.

Yes, it's still somewhat conjecture. But based on more substance, I think, than your statement. Of course, it's further validated by the dates different retailers are quoting for delivery.
