Yep...Its in-stock as of 16:30 CDT but the $18.70 ground shipping kills it for me.

I'd rather wait for Amazon...just a matter of time
Come on Mits you're screwing us big time on this one...Now it's the time.
I've missed the entire World Cup in 3D because of it.
What Samsung glasses do I need in order to work with this kit?

EDIT: I spoke too soon...Just ordered the kit (in-stock) from Amazon (via Onecall) for $99, free shipping. Estimated shipping date is 14th.
or 15th. 2 left as of 16:40 PM

Gen Coupe 3.8 Track w/ bolts-on tune: SRI , CBE

My understanding from lengthy discussions with them is that they messed up the transfer of the units from a stock warehouse to the shipping warehouse. It's not supposed to be a depleted stock issue.

I told them I paid for 2nd day air and now I'm getting 3rd day air, so we
adjusted my bill with a shipping charge credit. YMMV.

I still haven't heard anything back personally from RC Willey regarding shipping/tracking.

I did get a call from 6th Ave Electronics yesterday stating Amazon oversold the BDT-350s and I wouldn't be getting mine for weeks. I was happy to cancel that order as my Mits starter kit was in the mail. now neither the kit nor the 3d player are in the mail, yet both places have my money. better yet, the BDT-350 jumped $50 overnight with none in stock anywhere I looked.

Since you are ordering the adapter why don't you just get the Sony BDP-S470 blu ray player for $175 and save some cash? The 3D firmware upgrade is already out for it. I have one and it works great, although I have to wait for my kit to arrive to test the 3D.

I got a partial shipping charge credit and I'm still getting 2-day air,
but it's shipping tomorrow instead of today (supposedly).

I don't see why they just wouldn't mak more? I'm sure at 400 a piece they would be in some pretty good profit potential within a few years, there is a mitsubishi manufacture electronic division here where I live wonder if their making adapters in there. haha

They have - they are holding back so they do not create a support nightmare for themselves.

Having something that is in short supply and creating buzz and demand is better than not being able to handle a crapload of support calls all at once.

They are rolling them out slowly.........

They are makeing plenty, manufacturing takes time. This happens all the time with high demand products. Supply can't keep up with the demand on launch.

Let me see if I understand this right:
With just the adapter you get ONLY the adapter (no emitter, no glasses no HDMI cable).
With the kit you get the adapter, emitter, 2 glasses and 1 HDMI cable.
Now what good is the kit without the emitter? Are there glasses that do not require an emitter (how is the signal process in the glasses?) and if so are they as good as the ones that come with the kit (3D effect)?

looks like I may have just gotten lucky with OneCall.

With expedited shipping it should arrive tomorrow morning.

Close call though, there were orders streaming in for approval so they pulled the last 6 they had.

Strait from Mitsubishi web sight.

you will only need 3D eyewear and matching emitter or DLP Link 3D eyewear that does not require an emitter.

There are people with pre orders in a month before you that are still waiting. They are flying off the shelves from other places when they pop up.

at this point, I am so flipping worn out from this 3D upgrade headache that I just want something that'll play nice. little did I know my xbox would need HDMI to play Avatar in 3D. upgraded. done. the Mits adapter only has one in/out so I upgraded my AV receiver to 1.4 but am not entirely happy with this purchase. sprung for 102s to play Avatar, now these are purported to not work in conjunction with the Mits starter pack. another false start. I have another pair of 102s due in tomorrow that I'll have to refuse shipment of since I was swayed back to the starter pack vs adapter for several reasons. if the Mits adapter is the least bit finicky, at least the 350 would have checkerboard to fall back on. just want to be done with this, no more sending things back and no more being stuck with things I can't send back.

I can relate.
Such is the price that us early adopters pay.
I had similar headaches when I first went to HD in 2001.

Hey relax, it will all be worth it when you get to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs AND Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D before anyone else on your block. Then you can pack up the glasses for 4-6 months while you wait for Avatar and Alice in Wonderland to be available. If you don't want to pack up the glasses there are a few game demos on the PS3 you can try, or you can watch re-runs of the World Cup in 3D! Yeah!!!

Enjoying BF4 on the PS4, bugs and all.

They are shipping. They didn't say everyone would have a stock of a million units.
Remember the PS3/Wii launch. Those were on ebay for tons of cash because of the lack of units made.

I agree! You guys will love the Mits glasses and adapter when you get them. Soon, for some of you! It has been worth the wait. I have been watching some awesome 3D programming on DirecTV. So be excited! It won't be much longer!!

They did. That's where I ordered mine from. Called today and was lucky. That was over 2 hours ago now.

Shipping has been confirmed as well. Just got the confirmation via email. Overnight delivery for AM 3D viewing!!

Give OneCall a ring... I originally missed out on both my local dealer and RCW. But was fortunate to get one through OC.
