Dish Network stated several weeks ago to dealers that the 721,s would be out in June in very limited quantities. Why these people ( D.D. ) allow pre-orders on product they know will take months to fill is beyond me.Originally posted by GaryK
I ordered a 721 from Dish Depot like a lot of others. However I assume I am at the end of the list (ordered July 1). I was just wondering if anyone is receiving there units yet?

The two to three weeks that you guys were told will be more like several weeks to say the least.
I would look around at other online places instead of waiting. The 721.s should be showing up at other dealers by now and as usual, other online guys are cheaper than D.D. most of the time.
I wasn't quoted the 2-3 week estimate until 6/30/02 (probably the same as everyone else). Due to the limited number of first-run 721's, it appears that the "pre-order" didn't save me any time after all. No big deal - I've been waiting since last year for this unit. What's another couple of weeks? :shrug:Originally posted by SParker
ugh slightly longer then 2-3 weeks. But the question is were you even quoted a shipping time frame when you ordered?

Thats why you should not order in advance, it does you no good because you could find another source to get them sooner by the time they do arrive. Going to a local retailer is the best way to go because they can get it in the next day or two.
I agree. I'm happy with the feedback that I've been getting from Mark at DD. He's at the mercy of E and doesn't have any control of when the 721's show up at his door. The 2-3 week estimate that he's currently quoting is from E. Hopefully, E will meet their next delivery schedule.Originally posted by SParker
Yeah I will wait too. I am sure what Mark at DD is quoting us is accurate. I can wait. Besides its a better deal than any local dealer will give me I am sure plus I doubt they accept trade-in's
Me too! I have already saved $50 by buying the 721 and a quad together from DD. Even if the $489 price is correct, it would only save me $10. Also, I've heard nothing but good feedback about DD. Buying from a "recommended" dealer is definately worth a little extra money.Originally posted by SParker
I'll probably just stay put. It will give my time to pay more on my credit card
