I placed the order yesterday, with 2-day shipping. Originally, it was shipping Sept. 21- Oct 7, with delivery shortly after. Today, I moved the shipping to standard, and then back to 2-day.

Shipping estimate: September 20, 2007
Delivery estimate: September 24, 2007


That's exactly what i did last night and it made the order have an even later delivery date.

Cool. What do you think of its size and weight? Do all your pixels seem to be perfect?

I just got my order bumped to 9/21 from 10/8 by doing this approach - the suproach approach, lol.

Wonder if i should try tinkering with it again to get a closer date?

I am stunned by how small and light it is. The size to screen to feature ration is amazing. Even with all the pics online, it is so much smaller than you realize.

Call amazon and say that your ship date got moved. Complain loudly and talk about your CC company. I think they ran out of stock shortly after I announced this, so it is having the opposite affect.

"Delivery estimate: September 21, 2007"

Since I moved it from 2 day, to ground, to 1 day/next air and got a date of the 21st, which is 9 days from today I am going to stay put for now. I had called Amazon earlier today before I did the switch in shipping and they were giving me the run around that they couldn't see any in stock. Full of crap. Fingers crossed though for the 9/21 or sooner!

Charging it from PC? Doesn't that method takes more that 24 hrs initially? If you would bought the dvr station or the mini dock, reports state the unit would have been charged within 3-4 hours. Congrats on the delivery though.

Thanks Kramer. Ya, you are right, but I couldn't decide which one to buy.. I don't have a TV now (I am an international student), I might just go with the Mini dock...

Maybe the wrong +24h first time charging times that have been reported were because the users had an old firmware on it at first which might have a wrong battery indicator saying it is still charging while it may be completely charged already. Maybe it's ok to update the firmware before having charged it completely the first time, at least if you don't see it indicate it's finished charging for the first time after a few hours.
