never: the etailer is Shop Sunshine which I checked out fairly well and my son had purchased a Sony TV from them several years ago.

Long story made short: ordered Sep 30 and told me they were "in stock," called on Oct 7 and was told that they (bought 2) were drop shipped from Sony on Oct 3 and I would subsequently receive shipping info, called Oct 12 because I did not get shipping info and was told that they did not have it yet, called Oct 14 and was told that they are putting a tracer on it.

Sounds like the same old etailer story of not having product in stock, doesn't it????

In Shop Sunshine's defense, they did tell me (at the time of my order) that it would take 10-14 business days to receive the TVs. That's a long time, but they did tell me. 14 business days from Oct 3 is next Friday.

Jury is still out, but I am strongly thinking about telling them on Friday (if I don't get the sets) that I either want a valid shipping number that I can track on the net or I want my charge refunded on my credit card. I think that should be fair enough.

Yeah it's tough to say. It doesn't sound fishy..........yet. If it was me I would do exactly what you said this Friday. Tracking number or full refund.......or I'm calling my credit card company and putting through a charge back.

Yeah, I'm still willing to give them the benefit of the doubt because I'm still within the shipping period that they stated.

Life is too short and I am too old to get in a snit........yet.

Hey ratpack, did you get your TV yet?

It's been awhile since I did a side by side review so I need to fix that. Thanks to my father in-laws recent HT bug I will be doing a good one in about a week or so. He decided that he wanted a better receiver and I was to pick it out for him.

So I decided on the Harman AVR-7300. Should be here in about 10 day's or so. It of course is being delivered to my house where it will sit right up against the Yamaha RXV-4600.............and you know what will be coming next!

Funny part is I have covered myself just in case I like the HK. All I told my father in-law was that his receiver has been handled and is on order.............I neglected to tell him what it was!

Yes, I received my TV on Monday evening. And, all I can say is WOW!!!!

My Comcast cable subscription comes with 7 HDTV channels and I have been watching them. It is a different experience. I am looking into the Comcast DVR/ cable box, but haven't made any decisions.

I do have an issue with the TV stand that I bought. I don't think that it is sturdy enough. It appears that a gentle push would knock off the TV. That would be terrible. The stand is on carpet and I need to do more investigation.

Because of the stand issue, I do not have my audio system hooked up yet. I do have a new OPPO DVD player ordered and, after things settle down, I may be ordering the Yahama.

But, in the meanwhile.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's still shopping! Has a store with new Samsung, Mitsu and Sonys. He wants me to fly out to compare with him.

He can't decide how much to spend?

Bug, what size did you end up getting....maybe I wasn't thorough enough with looking through the above post because I didn't see it.

My son is looking at 50 and 56 inch sets.

Ratpack bought 2 60 inch Sonys I think.
