    From the advert at the top of this page £1219.99, this seems to be the best price by far, is it?

    As far as i know, thats the best price around. But.... as with most places they haven't got any in stock, and having just spoken to a very nice lady there, they don't know when they will have any.

    I've been waiting for an AE100 since mid Feb. 1st stop was AV sales but cancelled when I saw Total Panasonic doing them for £1230 (no pixel check). Then JSW found discount TV selling them for £1219 with the pixel check. Hence cancelled Total Panasonic and joined Discount TVs waiting list (3rd I believe).

    I nearly wore out the phone at the beginning of April looking for one but hardly anyone had them in stock and no-one could beat Discount's price. I asked them all when they expected delivery, most gave the usual any day now 'because I want your order' story but one dealer said it would be the end of May (bear in mind this was seven weeks ago).

    I couldn't believe it at the time but now I hope he's right:)

    AAARRRGGHHHH

    Rang again - despite your friend cancelling, which they confirmed - i'm still 3rd (or 1st now). There must have been someone else (which is a bit odd as I was told I was third weeks ago:confused:)

    Hi JSW,

    I spoke to your very nice lady, bless her... She looked me up on her system and explained that they don't have a PJ for me at the moment but will be in contact in a couple of weeks..

    To be honest I've been very impressed by the level sanity and common sense at this retailer..

    Don't wanna rub it in Kev but I just got back from Colne with my PJ :p

    Ben had it checked before I made the Journey then rang me back to say it was ok, no dead pixels :)

    He also left it setup for me so I could take a look for myself when I got there.

    Oh and that very nice lady made me a coffee while the pj cooled down before being repacked for me :)

    Gonna hold off playing with it tonight but will start tomorrow :)

    I can't recomend enough Discount tv, they are superb, Thanks.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    Just to say thamks to all the people who have ordered the AE100 with us, I know my heart sank when I read the delivery manifest on friday! but Panasonic just do not have enough to cover anywhere near the amount of orders. However! this is the trickle that will turn into a flood over the next days and weeks and I am hoping to fullfill most if not all within a matter of weeks, in waiting list order. (So hopefull Kevin and others will be sorted out next week) Thankyou again for your patience and perseverance!

    Ben
