    did the same thing myself yesterday (from Dixons), know how you're feeling, but have to say I've looked at this screen about a dozen times in JL and think it really is the business.

    Just can't wait now for it to turn up so I can reassure myself that I've done the right thing.

    When i log on, it comes up as order received but no contact from them yet. Let's hope they've got enough stock available.

    paid on the credit card/interest free, so don't know if they've taken any money yet SLIM

    Just to let you chaps know, Dixons/Currys don't stock it, it will come direct from Hitachi, so I would give them a call and see if you can find out how long.
    And by the way, I'll eat Kevin if any of you get the thing going and wish you hadn't bought one. Its fantastic, I've never looked back.

    Im similarly w8ing for a change in status of my order. If you pay on credit according to how i understand it you will get the credit agreement in the post to sign before any deposit is taken etc. So im hoping for this to arrive although its been 5 working days now and the website quotes 4 :(

    Very, very slow, I ordered mine on the 16th and after making 3 phone calls at 20 minutes a time, they tell me I should have received the interest free paperwork a few days ago! They are re-sending it today, still, got the wall bracket from Argos today and marked up the wall ready, so I'll have to wait a bit longer until the paperwork is signed and returned and then await delivery!!

    I've also jumped on the bandwagon and ordered from Currys yesterday using the discount code.

    I see a few people mentioning that you can get the bracket for wall hanging from Argos.

    I've just picked up the new catalogue and can't see it anywhere. Can anyone give me a pointer to where its at ?

    I've just noticed that both Currys and Dixons are no longer doing the offer - it's now back up to £3499, so I guess they realised it was too good to last. Just as well I got my order in last night.

    I'm not doing the credit thing - only because I found out that Citibank offer the extra years warranty on plasmas, unlike Barclaycard.

    I think that as long as you ordered at the £2599 (£2404) price, they will honour it, my interest free agreement is definately at the discounted price!!

    Spose ill just have to cross everything and wait and see. It'll be interesting to know how long it takes for you to get your screen Steffan_Tapp at least it will give the rest of us that have taken the plunge a guide of when to expect our new toys :D

    That and to give the mrs enough notice about the mess and lack of attention to her :D

    I just had a phone call from Currys doing a security check

    Name / Address etc. I am paying outright via Visa card. The lady said that they should now process my order. Fingers crossed !

    My order status is still : order recieved though and haven't had any confirmation emails so far

    As long as I get the second one from them then they have made the contract !

    No problem detritus, I'll keep you posted with the progress, starting with the fact that the interest free agreement will be back in the post tonight, 11 days after I initially placed the order!!

    Well eventually got a response from Dixons, said it takes them about 2 weeks to get the credit agreement out. Once they get it back they'll process the order.

    Sounds like I'll get it at the discount price!
