Amazon.com with free shipping and they'll take your coupon.

http://www.amazon.com/Channel-Master...8283285&sr=8-1

About the same price as solid Signal and it will be packed properly in an outer shipping box.

I just picked up a CM7000 D2A from my local FRYS for $9.99 OTD. It picked up extra channels where my old RCA could not. The PQ is night and day compared to the RCA as well, and it's going through the RF out. I was actually shopping for a Zenith DTT901 but couldn't find it any where locally.

I don't have a nearby FRYS and their website has them for 69.99.

Why wouldn't it be?

Amazon.com = $59.95 - $40 coupon = $19.95 and get FREE shipping (in an outer box)

Solid Signal = $47.99 - $40 coupon = $7.99 + $9.95 SHIPPING in the retail box = $17.94

Yep, Amazon delivered mine in 2 days. Excellent choice and 30 day return policy. Coupon entry is a little confusing - you have to be sure item is in stock and be ready to buy, but then add the coupon separately from the order, (it's not a 'discount - it's a separate form) then add the item to shopping cart, then it gets applied and deducted from your total. I wasn't sure it was going to work, but it did.

I just ordered two of these from Amazon which says they're in stock. Redeeming the coupons is a little confusing. They have a form you fill out BEFORE placing the order - one form per coupon. They will send you an e-mail for each coupon entered. Click on the link in each e-mail and place one order for each box. I couldn't get it to redeem both coupons on one order for two. It would apply only one coupon to the order, so I had to place two separate orders. When I tried to place the order for the second one it informed me I'd just placed an order for the same item and did I want to continue with the "duplicate" order? Duh.

More than likely what topcat57 posted, one post UP from your question:

Now since you have it, what's your impression of the box? Confirm or reject,
is it as good as others were saying? Too bad it does not have APT.
I noticed that the boxes of high frequencies get acolades. The low range bet
ween 50 to 60 Mhz most boxes are in high range of 803/806 Mhz, but few are in 860-2,4,5 Mhz such as CM-7..Alpha Dig... Goodmind... Zinwell... iNet/Tivax, Coship, those boxes get best reviews.

I ordered 10 CM-7000s for a commercial installation from Amazon.com

They were shipped for FREE, arrived in two days, and were neatly packed in a shipping box.

I paid slightly more than Solid Signal but Amazon (at least) gave me the illusion that they appreciated my business.

For those who like to labor under an illusion, sounds great.

It's not an illusion when Amazon properly packs customer goods for safe shipment and Solid Signal doesn't.

It's not an illusion when Solid Signal won't answer a simple yes or no question on this forum regarding their packaging policy.

See post #92 in this thread http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...4#post16044804 for Solid Signal's backstroking statement when asked point blank about their packaging policy.

Ken, I'll continue to "labor under an illusion" from Amazon.com that they value my business and you continue to labor under the delusion from Solid Signal that they care at all about their customers.

Everyone gets to vote with their wallets... I voted for proper packaging and customer service from Amazon.com

Not a bad idea. Lately, Amz has been my main source for goods.

Solidsignal processed the order very fast, the communication through email was like chatting through instant messaging. Like others have said, they shipped the box without packaging it. They just stickied the fedex label on the cm-7000 box and shipped it like that.

Now my box review. I have to play with it a little more to give a more elaborated review but so far a love it. I have a Zenith and an Apex dt502 and the PQ and signal reception of the CM-7000 is far better. My complains thus far are about its GUI and CC, they are too dam small. I have two TV's of different sizes and with the small one I have to literally guess what I'm doing because you can't see or distinguish the font's. In the big one I have no problem with it. Again, I have to play a little more with it and you have to remember that there is no perfect CECB but the cm-7000 has me very pleased so far.

I hate to give recommendations, it gives bad impression, but last week I've got my
2nd box (Coship N9901T), in spite of its handicap EPG Now-Next, it is the best box on market, people do not know about.
It has 3 scanning protocol, Full Scan 2-69; ADD on Scan; Manual Scan 1-69.
The Manual scan does also Add channel then Search and ADD on Scanand the Delete. The manual ADD channel would do well in cities where it is hard to get good reception

Does anybody have current info on where to buy? The only choice of retailers that takes the CECB seems to be SolidSignal. Unfortunately they are, IIHO, price gouging by now having these for $70! Supply & Demand is a beast, I guess.

Ouch! Yesterday it was $60. A few weeks ago they were $42 and $43 right before that. Gov't needs to step in on price gouging just like they do (or supposed to do) on gas. It is a gov't subsidized program. How do we turn them in?

They were without question somewhere around $42 just a few weeks ago at Solid Signal. It’s funny, there is a current discussion over on High Def forum about Solid Signal and Jerry stated himself that they do not price gouge. A 28 dollar increase in one week?

On Thursday of last week I had it in my SolidSignal cart for $41.75 for a few days while I made up my mind about some other items I wanted to order, when I noticed they'd raised the price to $59.99. When I checked out the price of those in my cart didn't change from $41.75 and they shipped out the order without any problem. Just mentioning it in case anyone else is in the same situation.

I need to borrow your shopping cart.

Patience may be a virtue at this point in time if one's cards don't expire soon. I suspect a graph of prices vs significant CECB dates shows some interesting spikes. SolidSignal prices are all over the map, sometimes real good, sometimes real bad (although I'm not sure about all the boxes they sell).
