This irks me.
I ordered my screen March 8th - exact same as you, 110" matte white screen.
I've been given about 5 different dates from James, and I've told him, "I don't mind a delay as long as you're giving me a reasonable estimate of when it's shipping out." It's always been "I'll be getting to your order in a few days, then I'll send a tracking number out the next day." It gets really old when you hear it over and over and over.
After being promised the tracking number two times by James over email over the last few weeks (and a few times over the phone), I called him today and he told me it's "being packaged right now and I'll get you a tracking number later tonight." I'd be lying if I said I believed one word at this point...
So again, the wait didn't really surprise me; but when he was swearing up and down it would be shipped "that week" on the 3rd week, and then hearing the same story over and over, I've gotten annoyed.
I guess my problem is I take people at their word, and expect them to own up to that, and James thinks the correct way to run a business is lie out his teeth over something as minor as getting a screen out the door. If I talked to him a month ago and he said, "you know what, I'm way behind and your screen will be going out in 3-4 weeks," I think I would have been minorly annoyed for a little bit then not thought about it for another month.
The lies are bad enough, but when someone orders the same thing you do later than you do, and they get it a week before you do... that just makes me think he's pulling orders out of a hat and going to town all random like.
