FreePay Is A Cock Tease!
I already dealt with the fact that I had to wait months until i get my xbox 360... but changing my status to 'Sent to Vendor, Estimated Ship Date 10/21/2006' and fken not doing it is CRUEL... I pray for a special spot in hell for FreePay...
Heh, my Flatscreens account says "Sent to Vendor, Estimated Ship Date 9/23/2006" so don't feel too bad. ;)

... I just needed to vent... Been waiting for almost 7 months now
Well, just feel lucky they sent you what you were supposed to get in the first place. Assuming you get it, of course. ;)
My 360 is Est. 10/6... today is now 10/26....
OUCH,my ps3 status says "depending on product availability", now that is CRUEL

umm did you email them
My premiumipod said STV estimated ship date 11/21/06.
I checked it today and it says 'Shipped! 11/21/06!'
I clicked more info and they gave me tracking, it's coming on Monday!
Woot! They're liars but in a good way!
Now they say it was ordered but the vendor has it on backorder... there are 360s at Walmart!
Well... FREEPAY has shipped my item... I got a tracking number today...
I won't take back my comment though... I still think they are cock teases
I was 10/6 and your shipped?!!! What the?!!! Argggh

yes it is mine says the same thing. I sent them a support ticket and asked if I could get a GC if Im not gonna get the system until 2009, they didnt think that was funny and closed it.

yeah... yesterday around 5pm it shipped...
I got my 360 and 5.5 30gb about a month ago. Finally.
10/6 and nothing. Freepay replied and asked me to be patient... SMH
Well, I finally got a response to my support ticket, where I expressed my concerns about both the delay in shipping AND the devaluation of my monitor (was a $400 monitor at the time I did the site, now is barely worth $250). I hinted that I would prefer a $400 GC in lieu. Today I get this reponse

Yay, now I can still get a decent flatscreen to replace my last CRT liandli have some left over to get something nice. Maybe do some early Xmas shopping. )
Wow.....I'm betting that the model was no longer available though. It's hard to imagine them doing that if they could ship it to you.
Oh, the Samsung 940b is still quite available. Maybe not from their regular suppliers, though. It could also be that they recognize 8 refs for a (now) $250 prize is a rip-off and they would catch even more hell for it. I'm not the first that got this, another user posted getting the $400 cert after going through the AG or BBB or something. I didn't want to threaten them, but I specifically used the mention of a $400 cert, knowing they had done it before. I don't know if they were planning to do it anyway, or if they just caved to my request. I would suggest anybody else waiting for a monitor from them to do the same. Don't go saying "so-and-so said you're sending them a $400 cert!" Just make the point that shipping has been delayed so long now that the gift is no longer worth 8 referrals, so do they plan on shipping updated monitors or would they consider a gift cert in lieu. That's how I worded my ticket, and it seemed like it might have worked. shrug
I see a few 940s on PCMall, although not specifically a "940b". If one of the ones they do have was what they were gonna send, and it was in stock, then I'd be even more surprised at the cert.
I guess phrasing means everything. (
PCMall only has a 940t as far as I can tell. The 940t has a higher-end 8-bit panel with higher contrast ratio. The 940b IIRC is a 6-bit panel.
Edit Now I see a 940BX at PCMall, which has the same 10001 ration as the 940t. The BX is a 5ms panel, almost certainly 6-bit at that speed unless there are some new, cheap 8-bit panels that fast. The 940t probably has a slower 8-bit panel in the 8-16ms range (which I would actually prefer to a faster 6-bit panel).
