Amazon has been out of stock like a day after it became available. I think the supply is very limited and you guys will get the player at the beginning of March, which is only 8 days away so no biggie.

Disc Lot For SALE : HERE!

The Pana you can get sometimes for around 350 € and the Linker is ~180 €... The oppo is in Germany priced for 849 €!!!! so at the end you will save almost 300 € with the Pana and Linker combo!!!

I ordered one on Monday from BB (hey, I'm the curious type!) and it's showing an expected ship date of today, but at the moment is still in "Processing" status.

As somebody else mentioned, I just went on the BestBuy web site and this is no longer available for preorder... There isn't an "Add to Cart" link.

Regarding Best Buy...The agents don't have any more info than the website if you decide to call in. No worries...I just had some time on my hands so I thought I'd check.

One strange thing though. Virtual agent on phone said my order was 'Preparing' but website hasn't advanced to that stage. Probably just a coincidence but may mean movement.

Consider yourselves lucky... My order just went from "Thursday Feb 23rd" to "Get it by Wednesday March 4th". I'm pissed. Pre-order on the first day and this is what I get ?

I wouldn't worry too much just yet. March 4th is a Saturday, not a Wednesday. Something's wonky.

Mine just moved to preparing despite being pushed out to the 1st. They might just be hedging against the shipping transit time.

This happened with the Samsung too IIRC, last year. It was a preorder only at BBuy, and then it was GONE until March, when it showed up at other retailers. BBuy has been locking down these first batches.

Mine departed the BBuy center in Georgia earlier and shows delivery tomorrow, pretty fast.

Fair enough...I'll be looking for the owner's thread (you want to assume that responsibility right???...well, some comments here I suppose will do in a pinch).
