Yeah, but ... couldn't Sandisk have predicted all of that?

They pulled their release date off their website so who knows when it'll be out now?

This is showing up as in stock on Sansa's website and the link above this.
The button still says pre-order, but that's not really an indication of anything.

I ordered mine, and it appears to be going through.

Don't forget to use discount code "forum210" or "forum10" to get a 10% discount.

This doesn't work on pre-orders.

True, but the 4GB clip is not treated as a pre-order any more. It's listed in stock.

Try it yourself.

I guess I was going at it from the wrong "angle". According to this page, it's still pre-order:

http://go.shopsansa.com/customers/sa...html/clip.html

I got there from the 10% off webvertisement displayed in the Sandisk forum pages. But I used the link from a few posts back, and it works. Thanks.

Awesome discount coupon ishturkish! Thanks! Hopefully you are right and they have it in stock. I'm waiting for it to come to the retail stores to use my gift cards.

I don't see any actual "in stock" indication ... where do you see this?

Add it to your cart. Go to your cart. Press "go to checkout".

The order will be listed under the "items in stock" header. Until yesterday it was under a different header than other products in your cart.

I also called them. Their CS is pretty clueless. They looked at the order site and said it was only preorder (according to the button). I told them to press it, and then they confirmed it should be in stock. So much for the hope that they have more info than us...

I ordered one and got my email confirmation. It said "backordered."

Lots of conflicting information for me.
1. The main page's button still says "preorder"
2. The order page claims it's in stock.
3. The first email I got from them did not list it as backordered:

<table id="ctl00_ctl00_OrderSummary1_tblTotals" style="font-size: xx-small; width: 300px;" border="0"><tbody><tr class="cssDetailGlobalFont"><td colspan="2" style="font-size: x-small; font-weight: bold;" align="center">Order Summary</td> </tr><tr style="height: 2px;"> <td colspan="2" style="background-color: rgb(224, 224, 224);"><img height="2"></td> </tr><tr class="cssDetailGlobalFont"> <td style="font-size: xx-small;" align="left">Today's Order</td><td style="font-size: xx-small;" align="right">$75.78</td> </tr><tr style="height: 1px;"> <td colspan="2" style="background-color: rgb(224, 224, 224);"><img height="1"></td> </tr><tr class="cssDetailGlobalFont"> <td style="font-size: xx-small;" align="left">Backorder Total</td><td style="font-size: xx-small;" align="right">$0.00</td> </tr><tr style="height: 1px;"> <td colspan="2" style="background-color: rgb(224, 224, 224);"><img height="1"></td> </tr><tr class="cssDetailGlobalFont"> <td style="font-size: xx-small;" align="left">Total Order</td><td style="font-size: xx-small;" align="right">$75.78</td></tr></tbody></table>

4. The second email has tab formating problems, but may indicate it IS backordered [sic]:


<tt><tt>Amount Ordered Shipped BackOrd Price Title
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
79.99 1 1 79.99 SANSA CLIP 4 GB SILVER US
-8.00 1 1 -8.00 DISCOUNT</tt></tt>


5. My order status has moved in to the second (of three) stages - "Your order is being prepared for shipment" - looks like it may be in stock.

Hmm ... now that I look at my confirmation email, I realize that the formatting is off, as you said. I'm not sure whether my Clip is backordered or not. I replied and asked ShopSansa about this.

Unless "being prepared for shipment" means "shipping department employee is about to discover that your item isn't in stock." ;-)

Let us know if they reply. I would take what their reps say with a grain of salt though.

I'd be lying if I said that would really surprise me.

I got the following response:

In response to your inquiry, our system shows that this order is
currently in processing. Please note, your order will be shipped upon
completion in approximately 24 - 48 hours.

I replied with "so does that mean the item is in stock and not back-ordered?"

Any idea if they are shipping from the west or east coast?

I chose US domestic mail, and it looks like they are using a UPS service that picks up the item, then sends it by regular mail. Never heard of that before.

Anyone have a guess on when Amazon will have them? I have had mine ordered since Jan 19.
