Welcome! Glad you were able to snag some. I don't know if their inventory is real time or not...if not they are in for one big surprise when they come in tomorrow morning!

All that is needed for those that do have a wife is take a Testosterone pill and Grow a Pair :o

I just bought 2 more in addition to the one I bought yesterday for $49.99. Should I call DNNA and cancel the previous order or just wait until they all show up (just to make sure) and send back the initial purchase

Ok I can get into my order status and such once again, not sure what the deal was.

Seidelhd - my plan is to wait until I am sure my order at $29.99 ships and everything before I try to cancel my $49.99 one. However, Peter mentioned just calling and asking them to lower your existing $49.99 order to $29.99 (this is assuming you want to keep both) but I am not sure if that has been done yet.

Any confirmation from anyone yet that has been able to transfer lifetime service from a "broken" non-5xxx to a recently-purchased 55xx or 50xx?

Yeah.. that was me. The customer service center doesn't open for another 2 hours (8 AM EST), so I'll have to wait and see if this is possible.

I'll report back.

I really really don't think this will fly. I mean what's in it for DNNA to sell a 5040 for below the price it cost to make them. Only to go an trans lifetime service from a 3000 4000 4500 to it. Lets Get real here guys

But your $49.99 one will already have shipped by that time, won't it have?

Yes true but I can send it back once it arrives I suppose. But the price was already low enough, I'll probably end up keeping all of them :)

And who can blame you? :) I went "oof" when I saw that I could have bought my 2 $50 units for $29 each but the more I thought about it, the more I am hesitant to try to cancel the $100 order for fear that I won't be able to create a new $60 order due to "sold out".

I don't want to get too greedy and end up with no units at all shipping. Plus, I don't mind if DNNA makes $40 extra bucks off me (relative to the mysimon deal). They've been good to me so far.

I bought one this morning and was going to order another. Now they have taken the model off of the replay website so it no longer comes up.

We may be witnessing the end of the 5040s, save for those that are returned and refurbished yet again. But I would imagine there won't be so many of those given that it seems most problems that arise are fixed with a new hard drive...Well, at least they still have 5060s and 5080s available.

I am not even able to get into the outlet portion of the site...perhaps they shut it down while they assess their inventory situation.

I'm glad I have 2 in at the $49.99 price. That we know is bona fide because it was posted by them on their own website. The $29.99 price seems a little more iffy right now. But I would gladly pay $49.99 for all of my orders. We shall see how the drama unfolds...
