I'm hoping for the best but expecting the worst. I bet it doesn't ship out until next week at the earliest.

I ordered one today. Got the discounted price and the email says it'll ship on the 7th with an expected delivery by the 14th. This is my very first LCD. Huzzah!

LOL, Dell is just hilarious. I put my order in 5 minutes after it shows up on the site this very morning and it gives me a ship date of on or before 3/23. How the hell did you get shipping by the 7th? It makes no sense.

Well, I can tell you my order process. I called Dell last week to see when it would ship. The sales guy said he'd call me the morning it went out. I got a call at 9 AM EST this morning, but I had a few questions regarding compatability with my video card (BFG 6800GT). He called me back this afternoon with the answers and took my order...he also gave me the discount posted on the site. He said it would ship within a week. Sure enough, 2 minutes after I hung up, I got an email with order confirmation and a link to the order status. Says estimated ship date of the 7th.

The only meaningful difference appears to be that you called yours in. I actually entered my order into their system before yours. But for whatever reason phoning the order in seems to have produced faster ship times. Which is the opposite of what one would typically expect.

Yup, but from my limited experience with Dell, they are a bit wonky. I ordered an Axim 30 last year and right before the estimated ship date, it got pushed back a month. The day I got the email, the 50V got released, so I upgraded to that. I think I ended up getting that x50V before when I would have gotten the 30.

Hm, Well Rip here is what im thinking of then.

Eather the dates are worth a grain of salt. Or you could phone and inquire about it, see if they can do something about it (as long as theyd ont bump me off that is) ; ) hehe

My 'status' page still shows that they arent gonna ship untill the 7th so who knows.
