The order status estimated ship date is likely incorrect.
Still, only a week and a bit before the 17th ;-)
I think we'll also see the esupport page go up for the S790 before it ships. Likely around the 16th or something. They need that in place, should folks need to download the original firmware for whatever reason.
I currently own a S590 which I think is excellent, but I am interested in the S790 and I want to be able to answer the question, is it worth paying the extra for the S790? Does it offer anything above & beyond what the S590 offers for the "regular user". When I say regular user, I mean doesn't have a nice Sony VPL VW1000ES 4K projector ;-)
