How many people have pre-ordered their HD1? Is there any recommended retailer? I normally wait a few months after the release of new products to let the prices stabilize, to let competitors catch up, and to see if the real thing lives up to the hype, but I am considering a pre-order of this device. I think Sanyo is really creating a new class of device, and it will be 6 months to a year before any other players get in.

I know that Amazon and J&R are both taking pre-orders at $799, and I have ordered from both before and think they are pretty reliable. Are there other retailers I should look at? How are their respective return policies? What about price matching? Any experiences? I know that Amazon is reasonably flexible about price matching, but only to their own prices, and not other merchants. J&R, on the other hand, claims to match any authorized retailer, though I have never tested their policy, and they don't give a timeframe on their website.

I ordered mine from http://www.dvnation.com/hd1.html . Since delivery will be in March, I hardly even consider it a preorder, and I don't think the price will drop anytime soon, so I'm happy with my decision. I can't wait! The sales rep says there won't to be too many available at first...

Hey I'm new to all this, but it seems that theres a Guy on Ebay selling several of these cameras for a decent price. (I think its 790 shipped) If you dont want to go that route theres always Amazon, they say they're shipping March 15th I believe. Good luck!

I'm going to wait till my June, HOPE that maybe I can get one for around $600 (i emphasize the word hope, because if this camera is all its cracked up to be Sanyo won't lower the price at all).

Yes, but do you know who DV Nation buys from? They do not buy from SANYO Fisher Company directly in the USA, so where is the product coming from. Possibly and overseas import? If you are concerned with warranty and such, I suggest you buy from a reputable place.

Amazon is receiving quantity Wednesday 08 March.[/b]

QVC is receiving their quantity Wednesday 08 March. (AND, QVC includes a 512MB SD Memory Card with the kit)
Circuit City, J&R, B&H, Discovery Channel Store and Apple are receiving quantity on Friday 10 March.[/b]
