For those that are looking around to find the Hitachi in stock, I have just received the following e-mail from John Lewis. The direct link is below: http://www.johnlewis.com/Shopping/Product.aspx?Type=SKU&ID=230213759&source=18740 I have decided to go for the Sammy so won't be needing this now. More than 10 in stock! I believe they may price match and you get a 5 year warranty as standard. Fill yer boots !!!
