Not yet. I ordered last Saturday and Monday the shipping code was generated. It is due here next Monday - so 7 days total to ship. I don't mind since Paul's is in the West Coast and I'm on the East. They are using a freight service and its not like this is a normal item.
I have no experience with ABT, but I can only say good things about the ordering process through Paul's. I'll update the thread when the TV arrives.
