I got mine ordered and have the acknowledgement/confirmation e-mails. Mine says shipping on or before the 23rd though... Good God I hope I don't have to wait that long. That would be the sux0r.
Hey you and I will have to post some pictures and a mini-review when we get it. Let's start a new thread for it when we do that though.
I am willing to forgive a couple dead pixels, as long as they aren't in the center. However if there is significant backlight leakage this display will be exchanged. I'm going to be a bit pickier when the price starts getting over $1000.
