Dear Customer,

Once upon a time ........

You know, I just priced a 23" and a second 20". The pair would be a few hundred less and bull crap free. I want the 30" and the few hundred bucks isn't the base of any decision but, but if I don't actually see some people posting they have gotten the 6800's in the next week or so I might get disgusted with all the chaos enough to cancel the 30" or maybe the entire damn order until Apple get's their crap together. I really do not want 2 displays but 3 months without any confidence it will even come then ........

I went to an Apple store to go display testing, and saw the weird pink tinge on two of the 23" displays (out of say 5) a couple of weeks ago. I ended up making my monitor decision on an HP 23" HD f2304, which is just amazing. I already have an Apple 20" and the HP just blows it away in all areas. Plus it has multiple inputs (composite/s-video/dvi - both analog and digital, and d-sub. I currently use it as my main work monitor (with the 20" as the 2nd monitor) in Pro Tools, and then once work is over I use the 23" as my TV. Based on all this hoopla about the Apple monitor colour inaccuracies I'm definitely going to be holding off on the 30" for a while. I'm not shelling out $3k for a giant pink-tinged screen, so waiting is the game for me now. My 2.5 is coming with the 6800 (e v e n t u a l l y) so I'll reassess the situation later.

Only a week until *my* G5 is due to ship. Let's see if that slips again...haha!!

Oh gee, thanks for reminding me about the pink 23" display's! (Glad you did, really!)

I just emailed my vendor asking when my last date to cancel my entire order was advising I might unless I hear some concrete news about the 6800's and 30" displays. This 3 month long fairytale has me disgusted.

Well, as I mentioned earlier in the thread, I received a call from Apple (yes, they called me) a few weeks ago now telling me my new ship date of "on or before 10/08/04" would *not* slip again, and it came with a big apology. Also as I previously stated, I was very surprised to get the call, but also very appreciative of the courtesy. They double checked on my ship-to addy, and that was that. So.... all being well I should probably have it in 10 days to two weeks from today.

If it *does* slip again...well...I'll hope it arrives before Christmas at that point (or I might change my order to a new PB instead)

I got the same email and checked the FedEx tracking number. It actually shipped. Now all I need is the 30" display which should come in a few days.

My G5 2.5 (complete with 6800) is "on truck for delivery". Should arrive in a couple of hours now.

Lets see...

How far back did the dates ended up getting pushed? 1.5 months?

Pretty much. Mine was originally scheduled for August 28th. So, that's 40 days and 40 nights.

Congrats Harry!!! Enjoy it. I hope you don't have the problems I have had with the 6800 card. I can't wait to see the 30".
