Don't you know that early adopters always get shafted?

Raise your hand if you bought a DVD player in 1997/98 and paid more than $300-400 for it. Raise your hand if you bought any recordable DVD player prior to 2002, and paid over $1000 for it.

Okay, I'm done here.

Agreed, but we're talking DVDs here, not new cutting edge hardware technology. Usually, when you pre-order a DVD from a site (which is what a lot of people did) you get a cheaper price. The infrastructure to create and package DVD already exists and has been streamlined. You also don't expect the horrendous level of customer service that AU is shoveling out.

Uh-oh.... a saying I have springs to mind. Sh*t the bed.
Not very nice, but quite fitting.
No wonder I couldn't get onto the site last night... it must've gone into meltdown. Now I, yes I, calm but slightly annoyed of England am thoroughly PISSED OFF. :evil:
Talk about the last straw. If AU don't tell us what we'll be getting and when and then what ELSE we'll be getting I'm afraid my order with them will also be cancelled.
I wonder if anyone from Amazon has been reading this site.. talk about guaranteed orders....
Let's make the memories that dreamers only claim,
But it's hard, when the world knows your name.
