Just spoke to EmpireDirect regarding the Samsung 32" which everyone and their dog seems to have on order. They asked if they could take payment now, although the item will not be in stock for 1-2 weeks. I said fine... and asked how many they are getting in stock.... the answer was 50, 47 of which he said are now allocated to customers. That doesnt tally up with what some other people have said on here, but time will tell. David.
