    Ordered mine on October 4th (M.Keynes), after the supposed delivery of 100+ units to the central warehouse.
    Anybody else order on or after that time and heard anything.
    I know I'm impatient but I sold my Tosh RPTV this weekend so all I have is a 20" thats been in the garage for ages
    :(

    I do have the wall mount up though, which is nice!

    If memory serves, and i've thrown my notes away now :(

    - Ordered by phone to JL Southampton on Tuesday 30th September.

    - Advised in stock at Central Warehouse on Friday 3rd October. CC payment taken to get my unit shipped to store for collection.

    - Collected from JL delivery centre on Thursday 9th October.

    - Installed and configured in living room Friday 10th October :)

    My advice is to become their most favourite customer. Phone them everyday, sometimes twice. Always be polite, know your reference number, know they name of the very nice sales assistant that you spoke to last (+ date / time you spoke to them). And just keep asking them the current status of your order. There system keeps track of your your communications and the status of your order so anyone you speak to will know the latest update.

    You can of course pop into the store and say hello, become a face to the person you've been speaking to all the time, maybe even offer to take them out to dinner LOL

    From my post on 1st October about availability:

    "100 into central warehouse on Friday 3rd October (overdue orders cover 58 of this 100), getting 5 more on 27th, and 255 on Friday 31st October!!!"

    So you maybe unlucky and be waiting for the 31st October delivery. Feel free to phone and ask. When I spoke to Dave Buckley at the Cheadle branch, he was very knowledgeable of their order delivery dates.

    Good luck,

    Nik

    I ordered mine from High Wycombe around the 6th October, they confirmed the price match with the Cheadle store, and said they had none in stock (although he didn't say whether that was local or central warehouse stock). The guy suggested it could be up to two weeks for stock, but he was probably just randomly guessing.

    Phoned the High Wycombe store earlier today. They've apparently checked with the central warehouse and the next likely date is the first week if Novemeber. Guess I'll sit and twiddle my thumbs for a bit then.

    Those of us waiting might like to know that JL are still saying end of Oct/ 1st Nov for these!

    That'll be almost a month without big screen entertainment.

    I've actually started talking to the Wife and kids, how bad is that :D


    Chappy from JL phoned me back again, they are delayed because Hitachi didn't send any Tuner boxes, so I guess this means they have the screens sat in the warehouse.
    This is for MK JL anyway.

    I spoke to JL at High Wycombe again today. The computer was telling them that 5 had been allocated to them from a delivery into central warehouse yesterday (27th Oct), and that I was number 2 on their waiting list !!

    They said to expect a call in the next five days to arrange delivery (and payment) once they'd got the delivery from the central warehouse.

    Plasma here I come ;)

    Encouraged by Kraken's post, I called my JL in Liverpool and asked them about my TV.

    What they said has greatly depressed me:( :( According to their system, they are still awaiting the arrival of the 42PD3000 plasmas to the MK central warehouse. I had mentioned that High Wycombe had got 5 going to them, so JL Lpool said they'd enquire and get back.

    They got back in less than an hour and said that it was still status quo, in that they are waiting for the plasmas to arrive, and according to their enquiries, all branches of JL(High Wycombe incl) has got them on order only, and nothing going to anyone :(:(:(

    Kraken, if you find out otherwise, do post here so I can hassle the JL here again :D:D:D

    I'm from Liverpool too, I've never seen plasmas in JL btw ;)
    Ive got my plasma from RS (off bold street) with 3 years warranty at 2699, I think it's a really good deal.
    And yeah, I've got it straightfoward, just went there and said: I'd like that Hitachi PMA400E, here we go, paid, phoned a cab 5 minutes later, and I've been served!

    Ziocletto,

    you lucky so and so :):):)

    RS dont do the 42PD3000 as far as I'm aware, and I guess as the ad goes, "Good things in life come to those who wait" :D :D

    Oh, JL has about 4-5 42" Plasma screens, and one 50" screen

    RS may not stock it but you can atill contact some branches that opperate the "park Royal" delivery system (a delivery centre in London) which covers most uk postcodes with mostpostcodes having half day free delivery slots, eg High Wycombe branch can arrange this for you and also have on display all the plasmas JL stock (i was there today)
