    I can't beleive it, where have they all gone!? I have been trying to get my hands on one for a couple weeks now it seems like they are out of stock absolutely everywhere. I am from Canada so I am trying my best not to buy from the states. Even local dealers it seems are completely dry lately. I first heard the 15th of december but it seems like now its the 22nd. How likely is it that it will be moved again, probably the 29th or even next year, the closer we get to the 22nd? I really want to get my hands on this before I go back to school in January.

    Argg...
    Thanks alot,
    Adam

    There have been rumours, some from Infocus that the X1 as we have known it is in transition. If they are indeed making that transition now the X1 will be back shortly but it will not have the faroudja chip any longer. It is probably worth your time to track down someone who has it in stock right now.

    Good luck, this is a great PJ at a great price.

    I've got one that I will be taking back to Circuit City if you're interested in getting one that badly. I got a killer deal from Dell just after I bought it and it just arrived this week. I live in Michigan... (Seems like it has about 30 hours on the lamp)

    Adam, have you tried Projectors Plus? They told me they had stock on the X1 about two weeks ago. I would also check Projectors Canada, they were supposed to have some coming in this week.

    cheers,

    Francis.

    I bought the X1 directly from Dell. (I think it was through their small business division.) They had a special in the "Deals page" section of this forum back at the end of october or thereabouts. I paid $800, which is below cost for the X1. Needless to say, I was ecstatic to get that price!!

    Nick, where did you buy from and when did you send your order. I ordered from SoftMagic on Monday, when they said they still had some in stock. As of yesterday they were out of stock so I'm not sure if they got to my order or not, I'm awaiting a reply from them. If you didnt also order from them I as curious as to where you did; I wasn't aware of any places in Canada that have had them in recently except for soft magic.

    Yeah, softmagic got a shipment of 35 in at first, but they shipped those, yesterday they told me they were getting another 15 in... im hoping im one of those 15...

    If it doesnt get shipped by friday, im gonna try to cancel the order and try Cendirect again, they say they have a whole bunch on order (99 in their Vancouver warehouse, and 325 in their Toronto)...

    Those two were the only ones that cost under $1500 after taxes and shipping... these little bastards are hard to find!

    Hey Patrick, there is nothing wrong with that price. The price I get from my sister WITH both taxes but NO shipping is $1425.

    Now if I could find a reselller in Alberta or Quebec and get the same price and save a tax I'd be damn happy.

    I think it would work out to about $1325 including 1 tax, add $20 for shipping and $30 for using a card(?) so it work out to about $1375.

    P.s. Shoppers has a cheap proscan player with VGA output for $80 .. just a heads up .. + if you spend more than $100 you get 15000 bonus Optimum points.
