    Hello, I'm still on the waiting list at discount electrical and Ben tells me he still can't say for certain when they will be getting any in (I'm number two on the list!)

    I just wondered if anyone had heard anything about the new shipment and how many people were waiting!

    It's driving me mad now as I have wired everything into my new cinema room so I can't even watch any DVD's on the tv downstairs!!

    I may have to resort to taking the DVD player back out of the room at this rate!

    Tell me I'm not alone!

    Porrm:rolleyes:

    yep, I'm on the list too. Although I only added myself recently (last week) so god knows where I am in the list!!

    I know what you mean thought, I have a Viso diagram of how I'm gonna connect everything - I have the other components on order (ProV, RGB-SVideo converter etc) I just wonder when Panasonic will start delivering decent amounts to the UK!!

    I was top of the list and received an e-mail today to ask if I still wish to go ahead - daft question. I replied to another thread about this but the whole thread seems to have been deleted. Ben was offering a quicker but more expensive delivery of the AE100 - or was I dreaming:confused:

    I'm still waiting, from AV Sales. Matt assured me I'm on there list but doesn't know when they are coming in. I've been waiting 5 weeks. The rest of the room is set-up, just needs a projector.

    The thread was deleted for reasons that are obvious to me now, but not so then! I'm seeking to get a clearer answer from Panasonic this week, I feel really quite guilty when I sit down and watch my AE100!

    Talked to Pamela at Discount today to arrange delivery. Apparently mine was the only one they received in stock.

    I'm glad I bought mine when I did ! Simply could not bear this kind of waiting around for it.

    Ok mine cost me £1300, £50 or so more than some of the sites around here. The option of £50 more or the sort of wait some people have got on their hands ? I know what I'd take considering the WC is on right now.

    I bought it from a reputable panny authorised dealer not mail order. So I have a face to face person to take it back to should it ever go wrong. Also the dealer is still likely to be around for a fair while yet something which you can never be sure about with these internet sites.

    Anyway hope everyone whose ordered gets there's soon cos it is definitely something special.

    Ordered from Robert Whyte Ltd in Glasgow seven weeks ago and still waiting.

    No firm delivery date yet but they think it might arrive this week.

    Won't be holding my breath though.

    Yeah, you can tell by the age of the shop fittings that we have been there a while! (established well b4 I was born anyway!) Does anyone know if any other dealers have stock at the moment? Just need some ammunition to fire at Pana for their seemingly endless 'end of this week' If anyone saw one of my previous posts I know for a fact they have more stock in Japan destined for europe, because a third party contact of mine can/could access that stock! Its just uneconomic for us to import that stock at the moment.
