    I ordered a Hitachi 42PD7200 from John Lewis in Aberdeen a couple of weeks ago to be told they would be in stock at the main warehouse from 6 June with 2 days required to get them to the local warehouse. I've heard nothing since !!!

    I went into the store last week to see that the system still said that 60 were expected 6 June and that there were another 30 "Overdue".

    I'm losing patience now .. anyone else hassling JL on the stock status of this set?

    I'm seriously considering buying online now (saving £500) but the 5 year warrantly, locality and good reputation of JL pulls strong !

    .. I'm in turmoil here !! :(

    Have you asked John Lewis about the delay?.

    While you are waiting, find another store selling the same TV for less and they will price match it.

    I just received this frm JL about 5 mins ago:

    _____________________________________

    I am sorry that you have to wait so long for a update.

    I have been in contact with our central offices who deal with ordering and
    handling of our TV stock. Unfortunately Hitachi have not delivered stock to
    us on time (this was expected to be the 6th), there would seem to be a
    problem on their side with getting the stock to us.

    I was advised by central that it could take up to 2 weeks for the stock to
    arrive. The next planned date for delivery in to our Warehouse is the 20th
    of this month.

    Unfortunately it can and has happened that the suppliers do not show up on
    the expected day. If this happens they have to reschedule to the next
    available slot for delivery which can be up to a couple of weeks after.

    As to what you would like to do with regards to your order, You could wait
    for Hitachi to deliver the goods to us, or come in to the shop to speak to
    one of the TV salesman about what other sets would meet your requirements.
    I know that Panasonic have just introduced a new range of Plasma TVs
    perhaps one of these would suite your purposes.

    Again I am very sorry for the delay with your order.

    _____________________________________

    All in all a very resonable response but it doesn't help me get a new telly !!!

    Options appear to be:

    • wait on JL's shipment from Hitachi
    • buy the same site online for less and gamble with no extended warranty
    • buy online and purchase an extended warranty
    • buy a different set from JL
    • buy a different set from somewhere else

    Given that I waited months to decide on a set, now I have the cash and have bitten the bullet, the delay is frustrating ... I'm off next week and would like to spend some time setting up my TV !!

    Someone keep me away from Comet :lease:
