Amazon is ruining Christmas because people won't be getting the paperwhites in time. There you go.

Serenia - it's too early to be disappointed now! FWIW, I received my PW on Oct. 2 (yes, I was one of those that ordered as soon as the order page went live) and it was/is nearly perfect.

And I honestly think there might be a burn in period. I never had the color splotches reported here, but the "spotlight effect" at the bottom, if I looked for it, was noticeable in the mid-range of light intensity. (This effect was easily ignored when I was reading.) Now--three weeks later--it's hardly noticeable, even when looking for it, even at the highest light intensity. Is this my imagination? I'm not really sure since I don't know how to objectively measure it.

D.L.C. - If you have a delivery estimate of 26 Nov, why would you worry about it not arriving by Christmas? Remember, Bruce ordered 2 weeks before it was even released, and during a period when there were a *lot* of pre-orders. You are very likely to receive the PW before Christmas.

Disappointed at something that hasn't even happened and probably will not happen?? Are you also worrying about that asteroid that is supposed to come close to the Earth in 2024? I am all uptight over that one...

Maybe you'll luck out; my PW is perfect!

I feel a little guilty that mine arrived 8 days earlier than scheduled. I was hoping for it today so I could take it camping this weekend, but I've had it for a week, and I love it!

Crossing fingers for you to get one out of the "good batch"!

I was supposed to get mine yesterday, it was "in transit" all day and never got here, hoping it comes today.

My delivery estimate is November 26-December 3rd. I ordered on October 19th. I'm really nervous about the defects. I won't have time to wait for a replacement. I'm going to be really busy on the month of December to worry about that. I'll most likely just get a refund instead if my PW is defected. So disappointed. :(

He might be mine. Honestly, I just hope its defect free. If its delivered after, well tough luck to my friend.

5 weeks Bruce? Good Lord.

I ordered a paperwhite as a christmas gift:
Shipping Estimate Wednesday November 14, 2012 - Monday November 26, 2012
Order Placed:
October 11, 2012

Should I be concerned?

Received mine yesterday - one day earlier than promised. Ordered Sept. 17.

It came last night, and the screen was perfect. Caloo, calay!! What a thing of beauty.

I wonder if mine would have shipped after all too. Moot since I cancelled the order after the email arrived. LOL I don't mind--much. Still have my Kindle Touch and it is working fine. I will stick with it a while longer apparently. :)

I just checked my Order page as P.M.H. suggested and it said it would be shipped today, after all! Thanks, P.M.H.

It's 5pm here in NYC now, but UPS often doesn't deliver until well into the evening. I'll be keeping all my extremities crossed.

But why did Amazon send me that dreadful e-mail if they were going to ship on time? Can I sue them for intentional infliction of emotional distress?

Yet mine arrived 7 days earlier than projected.

If you want to order for Christmas, don't delay!

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 23, 2012 1:29:37 PM PDT
No way! This was a replacement for the first, which arrived broken. It's my precious, my Christmas gift.

Sell it on ebay for $500 bucks and wait to get another one :)

Posted on Oct 23, 2012 1:12:34 PM PDT
Mine came just now, and it's perfect.

If I couldn't get one in time I would just leave a picture for the person so they can sit and drool over it until it shows up...hehe.

If I was planning to give anyone a PW for Christmas, I would definitely want to have a Plan B in effect. :)

No, he is a Scrooge. He should employ child labor for the holiday rush. I am sure most people wouldn't mind if they get their devices earlier.

Can't wait until the posts start stating that Amazon ruined Christmas because they can't get the PW on time :)

Check out your local Best Buy. People have reported here that they are starting to see them in the stores already.

I got the email today. I might get it by the end of November, or not. There was something in parentheses that said it might be even longer. I cancelled the order since I won't be at home at the end of November anyway. Hope they can get it together eventually. Maybe next year. LOL
