    Seems everybody's awaiting stock - for some time now. My dealer has mine on order for last month - still only expected in coming weeks. :(

    Both Panasonic Business and Consumer are expecting shipments in on the 3rd week of March so if you got one on order early enough it should only be a few days after that.

    However Panasonic are still suffering shortages (probably from selling all their glass to Toshiba and Fujitsu :suicide: ) so they still aren't sure if the March batch is going to satisfy all the backorders they have :mad:

    I've been waiting for my Panny 37" since 26th Jan from JL. At least they keep me informed, well if you can say that, all I hear is that Panasonic should be bringing some into the country in March?? Worse thing is I've got the rack, stand and leads all sat in the longe waiting...... Getting a new car on Saturday and a certain footie result on Sunday did cheer me up mind....

    If your waiting for a silver 37" then you'll get it v.soon as there is a huge order on the way that should have got in ages ago that will satisfy all current backorders Panasonic have for 37" consumer screens!

    Hello all

    And as we are now into Corporate end of year - 'lets just buy it now before we loose our budget but it must be delivered in March' silly season then its set to get worse I'd say.

    Plenty of TH-42PHD5BX (Charcoal) available but 37 and 50 could still be a problem even after next weeks shipment!

    Best regards

    Joe

    If I were a dealer I would sell lots of plasmas without delivering them. In a few months time my margins will have been multiplied by the price decreases which are overdue...:cool:

    I know a supplier that has loads of stock of the 37" Panasonic and offer free next day delivery. Will check the price and post back tomorrow evening in the interests of making sure the price is right for fellow forumites.

    Incidentally I have just purchased a 32" philips from them and the service was certainly first rate to say the least.

    Cheers, Brock.

    Ok, I have contacted the shop today and the details are:-

    Panasonic TH37pw5B @ £2750.

    Panasonic TH42pw5B @ £3590.

    They say they are happy to price match other retailers with stock.

    They have a couple of dozen of each in stock and prices include delivery and VAT etc.

    Next day delivery is available if ordered before 3pm and Saturday delivery is available for a further £20.

    The guy who deals with plasmas is called Jonathon and was very helpful. Contact him on 0870 7010004 or sales@buyyourav.com
    The website address is www.buyyourav.com.


    Cheers, Brock.
