I've pre-ordered it since they won't charge until it ships and I'm not in a rush to replace my shredder. I'm sure Amazon will send me and anyone else who orders it a message almost as soon as they know if/when it will ship.
As for the reviews, apparently there was a run of these shredders before that were sold and a few customers were able to get them before Amazon ran out.
Well, I just got an e-mail four minutes ago from Amazon letting me know they are about to ship mine out, and when I came to Amazon to check it out, I went to the product page, and it is finally showing as "In Stock". So you should be able to place an order now and have it arrive per Amazon's usual "In Stock" product shipping timings for your area.
thanks dude. not sure why i didn't get the same message--but all's well that ends well. i hope this shredder is a winner, i've had a couple losers on duty (expensive too--that's our tax dollars at work! ;-)
at home, i use my dad's old shredder--it's like [at least] 30 years old and still goin'strong. it's a sanyo sbs-520. anyhow, thanks again for the heads-up. i hope to have it by friday. happy shredding!
