Colossus Availability

I realize the pre-orders for the Colossus are shipping. Has anyone ordered recently from Hauppauge or some other source? I was wondering if they are on the streets yet. Looks like the usual suspects do not have them yet but hauppauge does let you order on their site.

Thanks!

NCIX (a Canadian store) has stock: http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=59174

They also have an American site you can order from: http://www.ncixus.com/products/?sku=59174

I order most (if not all) of my computer stuff through NCIX, one of the best we have up here in Canada.

usually it's the reverse: you get a better deal from a reseller than from the original manufacturer.

weird...

I've noticed with NewEgg that they sometimes charge more when a product is first released and in high demand; usually in a few days or weeks the price settles to a more reasonable amount. My guess is that is what you're seeing here.

That's buy.com, not Best Buy.

And:
Quote:
Package Contents •Colossus Video Recorder
•Hauppauge Remote Control
•A/V Cable Adapters (two sets supplied)
•Component Video Cable Set
•IR Blaster/Receiver Cable
•CD
•Quick Installation Guide
It includes everything.
