Ive had many problems w/ buy.com, apparently their inventory
system is not real-time.

Also the free-shipping is crapola, the cheapest parcel svc you can think of.

I received a similar backorder email.

All good scalable web sites are designed to give you reasonable (but not necessarily accurate) information. This is the nature of asynchronous systems.

"Usually ships in 1-2 days" is just that... what "usually" happens, not what's going to happen with your order.

When you place your order, the warehouse has not been checked, nor has your credit card, etc. If circumstances arise that brings things out of the norm, they contact you and let you cancel your order, if you choose to do so.

ok buy.com is psychotic. when i got home, i received an email from them saying my product was shipped. upon looking up the tracking number, the product not only was shipped, but reached its destination (a friends house, not mine). so evidently buy.com doesnt have the sharpest people at customer service, but i cant complain, theyve shipped the product out in a day and ive received it the next day the first time i got these. and now the second time i got them (first time, it was a gift for a friend)

Got an email from buy.com that my order (placed 5/27) shipped yesterday (5/31) via USPS... so it should show up eventually.
