Panny on backorder? Vent here... - Page 3  

post #61 of 329
I placed that order back in early December. I was told 2nd week of Jan...then that was pushed back...and then the backorder fiasco ensued. I was then told end of Feb early March.

I was told yesterday 1st week of Feb. :) We shall see.

One bit of good news... December manufacturing dates are being delivered to customers now... A quick turn around, even if it was December 1 that I saw...

Hopefully all of our orders can arrive at approximately the same time. I'm ready to celebrate with the rest of you. This is a brutal wait.

Heh, it's turning into a pwd6uy support group!

Hi, my name is JR and I'm waiting for my plasma...I'm currently stuck watching movies on my 19" Sony that I bought in 1990. Watching letterbox movies at 6 inches tall and 15.5 inches wide is...well...painful.

I'm waiting to be able to enjoy being able to actually read menu's on the 42" that's coming!

;)

Yes, a support group. Hi, my name is Flavius and I'm waiting for my plasma. I have been unable to watch any movies on my normal 27" TV for weeks now in anticipation of the new set, letting my Netflix subscription be wasted! There are no good movies in the theaters and wont be for a while. I am suffering from movie depravation!

WD 6UY

Order placed a few weeks ago... gonna miss the Super Bowl.. but should get it by March.

Now the hard part is deciding what else needs to be upgraded in my collection?

Is my old Sony 5 Disc changer gonna be enough? Will it produce a nice image?

Questions... questions.... questions...

I would not feed this TV model anything other than Faroujda progressive-scan!

Hi, my name is Crucial and I'm waiting for my plasma. I have been waiting since October 27 and am having withdrawls since returning the Electrograph. It was nothing but a tease having it for 3 weeks. I don't know how much longer I can take it.

I think the 42pwd6uy's are here...

I placed my order at Visual Apex on 12/29/2003, end of February was ETA shipping date. I just want to add that they are very good, helpful and friendly.

On 01/21/2004 I called dtvcity, they told me that they were expecting a shipment that week so I ordered the 42pwd6uy; on 01/28/2004 sales guy call me to confirm order; on 01/29/2004 i received invoice. I should be receiving my plasma no later than first week of February.

I am happy camper.... :D
post #74 of 329
FYI... VA just said that my order on 12/23 is #5 on "the list". I'll get a call next week to confirm then 5 days afterwards I should have my 6UY ED.

Hope this helps someone else somehow.

Hi, my name is Reggie. I also order my 42PWD6UY from VA last 12/20. I got excited when I received an e-mail from Jeremy Meyer 01/20/04 stating that my panel has arrived and will be processing and shipping it w/in 48 hours. He thanked me for ordering thru VA and will contact me with tracking number w/in 24 hours of shipping it. So, I got in high gear on mounting the Chief PSM-2051 (got it from Mounts and More for $55 less than VA plus free shipping) above the fire place, drilled holes thru the walls, run all necessary cables for my feed, install new surge protector and then I told my wife we will be watching the Super Ball and the Survivor on the plasma! Heck, I?ll even have time to calibrate the panel with all the input using DVE.

01/21/04 -I responded to his e-mail just to make sure its really coming, I have a slight doubt because he addressed me as Dale instead of Reggie and he was referring to PHD6UY on that first e-mail. I also asked him if he could include the 5 BNC to RCA adapter as requested on my order. After a couple of hours I got an e-mail from Jeremy he said sorry for the name mishap and stated that they are sending the unit out today and they included the BNC adapter for FREE. Reaction - I?m happy camper now and content. Anticipation is increasing.

01-22-04 - Thursday, according to my credit card Plasma was charged. Another reason to be happy. So far so good.

01-23-04 - Friday, called VA, talked to Elizabeth to inquire a DVI blade availability and cost and asked her if they have a tracking number for my unit. She could not provide me the info. so she got Jeremy on the phone. After sorting out things he confirmed that the unit will go out today and I will get an e-mail Monday 01-26-04 with the DHL tracking number and expect at least five days to get to Virginia Beach and DHL will contact me a day before delivery. I thought, no problem still have time for the unit to be installed for super Sunday. By the way, Jeremy acknowledged that VA receiving 200 unit a little ahead of time and they could not ship it fast enough for the back orders. I supposed a lot of people like to have it for super bowl like I do!

01-27-04 - Tuesday 4 pm pacific time, 7 pm here on the other side, no e-mail no tracking number. Called VA talked to Nancy explained every thing (nice lady) got my phone number and she assured me she will find out from a person that knows with in 5 minutes. After less that five minute I got a DHL Danza Tracking number from her and was told that I will get an e-mail tomorrow with all the info. about the shipment. Got on DHL website tracked the unit and to my disappointment the unit was picked up Mon. 01-26-04 from Seattle/Tacoma en route to Norfolk, Virginia with no arrival date but still hoping to get it by Friday.

01-29-04 - Thursday still no call or e-mail from VA about the shipment. I concentrate on DHL, took several attempt and finally got a live person. I gave him the tracking number from VA, it took him quite some time to find the info. that I needed and that?s after he asked me what kind of package I am expecting, where I ordered it from, address and my address and phone number, etc., etc.. After he sort it out that there is such a package going toward my way, then he let me have the bad news, my unit will not be delivered until Monday 02-02-04 the earliest due to some carrier brake down - what ever that means. He is very apologetic and seem sincere about it. I am soooo disappointed right now and embarrassed to mentioned it to my wife after I convinced her that VA is one of the best e-commerce company to deal with before and after sale. I will gently tell her the DHL truck broke down or stuck in snow. On the bright side, I am lucky I?m getting my unit soon (I hope) while others that order from Dell still waiting for delivery date. As for Jeremy of VA, I don?t know if its entirely his fault about the matter. I wished they could have been more precise about the shipping date. Do not say thing until they are sure its going to happen.

I am sorry for the long story, just want to vent out my excitement, anticipation and disappointment on this popular TH42PWD6UY. We will be watching super Sunday on Sony 35? CRT.

I hope you all have better experience than me.

Cheers,
Reggie

Sounds like VA got a bunch in stock and are trying to get them shipped out as soon as they can. I would appreciate the fact that they tried to keep you informed as much as they could.

I ordered from them on 1/21/04 and I wish my plasma was arriving on 02/02. I'll be lucky to get it by March. Never thought it would take 5 months to buy a tv that I waited years to buy. This has definately been an experience to learn from.

Congrats on your soon to have plasma.
post #77 of 329
I no longer have need to vent -- I just got my Panny today! I ordered it 1/4/04 (Electronics Depot), it was shipped 1/26/04, and it was delivered this afternoon 1/29/04, sooner than I had expected!

Picture quality is every bit as good as I had hoped. DVD's are excellent via my Denon 2200. DirectTV isn't quite as good as on my old 27 inch analog Sony, but it's better than I expected, and certainly worth it for the larger (42 inch) image size. I far prefer the image quality over the 46 Sony RPTV that I returned. The much discussed "screen door effect" of EDTV's is nonexistent at my 10 ft. viewing distance.

I temporarily set the plasma up on the table top stand on my kids' Little Tikes table. I can't wait for the entertainment armoire to arrive! Does anyone know why all the online vendors are selling the Panasonic table top stand for more than MSRP? MSRP is $175, but most places I've seen are selling it for $195-250. (Maybe to make up for discounts on the plasma itself?)

Hope everyone else's plasmas arrive soon!

I need to buy a table top stand for the Panny 42" 6UY. Has anyone found the best deal (i.e. cheapest) for this stand? If so, please share info (no need to mention price, as this may be against the rules). Thank you.
post #79 of 329
I got mine from B&H Photo... could not find cheaper. Not much better than MSRP though.

The best place is Ebay. You'll find many people that mount their plasmas on the wall selling the stand (usually brand new) below $100. Go to Ebay and search for "Panasonic Stand".

And remember that any Panasonic stand will fit all models/sizes.
post #81 of 329
Yeah, NOW they're selling a good one e-bay for silly low price. When I looked two weeks ago, there weren't any! I wasted $150 by not waiting. Curse ebay.

Ok so I ran out of patience since the vendor that I originally ordered from couldn't promise that I would get my plasma before March. So I cancelled my order and found another vendor which had it in stock. I am happy to announce that my Panny 50px plasma is ready to ship. It will cost me about 500 dollars more than the previous price I had accepted from the other vendor, but well worth it. I just couldn't wait any longer.

Please tell me I'm not the only person who ordered in December and is still waiting for my 42pwd6uy?

post #84 of 329
Placed my name on a backorder list the first week of Jan. and I was just notified that my CC has been charged and my unit will ship out this week!!!

It might be wise to put your name on backorder lists at a couple of different vendors. Since the allocation of units is not always fair some vendors get more units than others.

VA just called. PWD6UY is shipping out tomorrow! I should have it next Wed (2/11) after a long journey from VA to it's new home here in Tampa, FL. Now, let the shipping anxiety begin. :eek:

Scofer, good for you. When did you order it?
post #87 of 329
Ordered it 12/23. I hope the dam is about to break on the back-orders instead of just trickling in.

I hope yours and any other backorders come in soon! You guys have been waiting a while. :(
post #89 of 329
scofer,

Don't get your hope high, i was told my pwd6uy was going out 01-21-04, finally went out of Tacoma, Washington the 26th. It's been 8 days now... i haven't seen it yet. So much for 3-5 days shipping on their web site!

Ordered it from VA 12-20-03
post #90 of 329
Yeppie! Got a tracking number my 6UY is shipped today.
