**** UPDATE **** **** UPDATE **** **** UPDATE ****


IT JUST ARRIVED 5 MINUTES AGO (8/1 11:25am...ordered 7/23)!


I was at home taking a crap(;-)) when I hear the roaring sounds of the UPS truck engine. I IMMEDIATELY wipe myself up (hehehe) to make sure I make it to the door before my wife (she still doesn't know...). But the UPS man just throws it on the ground and leaves, just like that (no wonder the service is called 'ground').


Unfortunately, the wife gets to the door first, she looks at the box and asks me never suspecting since the box is SO SMALL, "What is it?" I tell her it's dvds, as I trade extensively. But then she asks me, "Why is the box so big?(relative to the dvd trade boxes of course) How many are you getting?" I didn't answer and headed straight to my room with a HUGE grin on my face.


Guys, ALL OF YOU WHO ORDERED WILL GET THEM SOON! don't worry! I'm living proof!


-end update-


The automated Response gave me a UPS tracking number, and when I checked, it shows that it shipped on 7/31 and scheduled delivery to here in Fullerton, Calif. on 8/1! And I didn't even ask for next day shipping! Is this for real?!

(***update*** Upon checking the details, even though it was ground shipping, the package originated from the Ontario, CA hub on 7/31, which is only about 40 minutes away from home, thus the early scheduled delivery date of 8/1. It is now scanned at the Anaheim UPS which is about 20 minutes away!)


Guys, this IS happening! So, those who heard mid-Aug. shipping dates, cheer up. I think DELL just arbitrarily told that so they won't disappoint anyone IN CASE the worst happened.


Now what, now what....PS DVD player, screen, cable, ............what else?! what else?! I'm actually panicking with anticipation! Just like a 6 year old the day before x-mas!


Will keep you posted.


BTW, my order number was 614-518-4XX

Just to update. My order shipped! Ordered on last monday, recieved msg that it shipped today, despite the fact that it was in a delayed status. Just hope it gets here by this weekend. Guess all is well that ends well, eh? Of course it hasn't ended till I get it in my grubby little hands. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Jonmx,


I got the dvds covered (1,250 plus titles), but the rest, sigh.., another headache....NOT!!!!


hehehehe


Guys, check the automated phone svc even though your status shows 'delayed' or 'processing(?)'. They are not real time. DELL emailed me 8/1 04:00am regarding my shipment, a full one day delay.


Hang in there!

Ordered mine from Cory 7/23. Received it today!!! I would wipe the grin off my face but my jaw is somewhere on the floor (will look for it later). This is the real deal folks. Hooked it up to my laptop (Dell Inspiron 4000 and WinDVD)and, without any tweaking, the image is awesome. Mind you, I was viewing at noon, against an off-white wall in my HT with quite a bit of ambient light so it was a little washed out. The blinds were closed but the room was not dark by any means and, in addition, my Panny 34WX50 was on for comparison. The LT150 was 10 feet back. Where is the screendoor!!! Rainbow artifacts? Maybe I am not susceptible. This may be the best $1700 spent on my HT. If Jason comes through with the DaLite I will be in business. I am headed to RatShack to get a breakout cable. Ca'nt wait to see how the RP91 and the LT150 work together.
