Anyone pre-ordered an xe1 from amazon? Just with some people reporting their orders for the e1 being cancelled, wondering if anyone has had their xe1 order cancelled as yet? Had my xe1 on order for a little while and had no news (hopefully that's good news)

Placed mine on October 17th @ £504 with the Delivery estimate: 3 Jan 2007 - 4 Jan 2007, I paid the extra £5 odd for 1st Class Delivery. :)

Still unchanged for me.
Dispatch estimate: 31 Dec 2006
Delivery estimate: 3 Jan 2007 - 4 Jan 2007

Although I expect they still trying to deal with the E1 and haven't looked at the problems with the XE1 yet, but I hope I'm wrong.

I ordered on 18th October but received an e-mail from Amazon on 20th October saying:

"Unfortunately the availability of this item has now extended to Mid January."

The e-mail also invited me to cancel the order and order the E1.

According to my account details on Amazon's website I should be sat watching the thing! It states:

"Delivery estimate: 22 Nov 2006 - 8 Dec 2006"

I just hope after more than two months of waiting I don't get one of those "we've cancelled your order" e-mails!!

Has anybody got updates re their orders for the E1 or XE1 from Amazon? Hope we don't get knocked back after all this time, a reliable AVS member who's also a retailer in the US stated he'd be shipping out all pre-orders for the XE1 on 3rd Jan. If that is the case and going by the model set by US/UK releases of the E1, Toshiba UK should follow about a week later (mid Jan).

I'm not holding my breath on Amazon dispatching my XE1 in 2 days time, did anyone ever get a HD-E1 delivered from Amazon? I still have my pre-order with Official Toshiba UK Stockist LE Concepts for the XE1 and I'd imagine that they will deliver before Amazon do, either way hopefully I'll get my player within the next couple of weeks. :)

Nearly £100 difference... the 360 hd drive will keep my enthusiasm till it's released.

Think I read once that Amazon UK source their Tosh kit from France or Europe somewhere (could anyone confirm?) and if that is the case, we should keep an eye on their relevant website don't you think?

Like most poorly updated websites it's only taking the estimated delivery date from the release date that they won't have bothered to update yet.

When I was waiting for gameseek to get stock of the Joytech 245c Control Centre, it would get to the release date on the website, then say it was "In Stock" for that day, then they would update it with another release date.

Had an email from Amazon today, and currently they do not have ANY stock of the XE-1, so we must still be patient and wait

I'm not expecting mine anytime soon to be honest. If Toshiba are not selling them direct then there is no chance that Amazon have them.

Hopefully I will get mine before the end of Jan as I would like to start watching all the HD-DVD's I got for Christmas!

I've just ordered the XE1 from Dabs whose website now says "Due in 3-4 days".

£537.99 inc delivery.

£33 more than Amazon but I feel there may be a better chance of actually receiving it!
