david(dallas) Plano,Tx 3/11/04 Don't know order number.

I was told when I bought that they did show any pre-orders at the time, I don't know if that was true or not. I haven't followed up for the past 2 weeks. I figured I would wait till May 1 and follow up and let me remind my salesmen to tag one for me ASAP..

I ordered and paid for mine 3/8/04 from the south side Oklahoma City store. There was about 40 orders nationwide ahead of me at the time.

Preordered on 03/07/04 at UE in Oklahoma City (South).

Sorry, don't know my order position. I do recall that the computer screen only showed five to ten people ahead of me, but I don't know if this was for that particular store or for all UE locations.

Sorry, HiDefSooner, for nosing you out. We'll probably get ours at the same time, though. BTW, thanks again for the HDTVOK.com site. It is a great resource.

Craig, thanks for your work on this thread.

I preordered through VE, but I will certainly take UE's unit if it is shipped first.

No problem. I was just wanting to put together a list, to see where I was. It'll also be interesting to see where everyone has ordered from.

Hopefully we'll all get our HD TiVo's before this thread gets too long!

I preordered on 02/28/04 at UE in Arlington. I'm not sure about my position either, but If I remember correctly there where approximately 25 orders in the system when I ordered mine.

Craig, are we free to ramble on, like in the VE thread, about hamburgers, cars, chick-fil-a, and grammar?

If so, I note that it should be "number" of people and not "amount" of people. Sorry, couldn't help it. I've been following the VE thread for so long, I'm starting to think just like some of those posting there. And, it's a great way to pass the time until I'm time-shifting HD.

Thanks again,

Tom

I'm not going to ask David, the TC owner for "self-serving" status, so we'll see where it goes.

Is "amount" really incorrect here? I did a google search on "amount of people" and there were 170,000 hits. I found nothing in a few minutes of browsing those results that indicated it was an incorrect usage of "amount".

Granted, "number" does sound better...but is "amount" really incorrect here?

Thumbs up Ultimate Electronics Pre-order

I pre-ordered from U.E. on 4-16-04 in Lewisville, TX. They allowed me to use a 15% off Coupon and I paid $849.96. Seems to be a pretty good deal.

Number is more proper. From www.m-w.com:

Number is regularly used with count nouns <a large number of mistakes> <any number of times> while amount is mainly used with mass nouns <annual amount of rainfall> <a substantial amount of money>. The use of amount with count nouns has been frequently criticized; it usually occurs when the number of things is thought of as a mass or collection <glad to furnish any amount of black pebbles -- New Yorker> <a substantial amount of film offers -- Lily Tomlin> or when money is involved <a substantial amount of loans -- E. R. Black>.

"Amount" refers to a volume, something not capable of being individually counted, such as water. "Number" refers to a definite quantity, something capable of being counted, such as pebbles or people ordering HDTivos. Now, where I get confused, among many other things, is the concept of sand. You can have a large "amount" of sand, but you can also have a "number" of grains of sand. BTW, you can also have an "amount" of water and a "number" of ounces of water.

What we don't seem to have is a large "number" of HDTivos.

Okay, enough for grammar. I will do my best to not take the thread off-topic from here on out. Uh, oh...I just ended my last sentence with a preposition.

Doesn't sound right to me. I was told 3 days to get from the warehouse in Thornton, CO to St. Louis, MO.

Ulimtate pre-order

Ordered from Chandler AZ Ultimate store, Friday 4/23, was #8 on the stores list and #308 in the UT, CO, NM, AZ and maybe TX region. Salesman stated the first shipment of ~300 was to arrive at CO main warehouse on 5/3 with another ~900 two weeks later. 30% refundable deposit ws required for the order. I saw the store by store order list and each store is planning on a display unit as well.

I have been following the Value E pre-order thread, what a fiasco. So I call D* and told them they have totally mis-managed the release of this product. I got through 2 levels of customer support and they just said they would elevate this, but nothing they could do.

The salesman let me see their main ordering screen when I paid the deposit. It showed units ordered by store, with 1 extra at each store which was explained as the display unit. In the Chandler AZ store, before my order they showed 7 units pre-ordered by customers with 8 to be delivered to the store, then after my order it went to 8 pre-orders and 9 to be delivered. Each store in the region was a line item and each one had 1 more to be delivered than pre-ordered.

I ordered on 3/23 from Chandler AZ store, and was told the same thing as JBinAZ. Each store will get 1 unit for display. I was the 2nd pre-order at Chandler, and #88 overall. 252 units will be delivered to the warehouse on 5/3, and the Chandler units should be in around May 6th or 7th.

I ordered from Plano, TX on 4/8.
I don't know what position I'm in, but a week earlier (~4/2) when I was calling around I was told there were 140 pre-orders nationwide and 20 at the Plano store.
