Just ordered mines about 2 hours ago from amazon.. guaranteed to be here Thursday morning. I sold my PS Vita for the shield tablet.. Been using the NowinStock Tracker to see where gets the Shield Tablet in stock since it's been selling out frequently. They Restock pretty quick though.. but it goes out of stock in a matter of hours... I cant wait..... Even if I get a defected one (cracked glass/case issue) will just RMA it through NVIDIA.. The Original Shield Portable was awesome when I had that..

I bought mine on Nvidia's site, because it's the ONLY place that had them in stock. Purchased the day it came out too, went out of stock really quickly, not too thrilled about that purchase because I spent over $50 on tax and next day shipping alone, when on Amazon, it didn't go back in stock for over a week and if I actually waited, Amazon doesn't charge me tax, nor shipping as a Prime member. Oh well. lol I got mine when I wanted it.

I have been monitoring BestBuy (BB) sites because although I'll get charged tax, they have a promo with BB credit card that gives 10% cashback. Finally, last Friday, they have in-stock for shipping. I ordered it and it was shipped this morning (w00t!!). ETA this Friday. Can't wait!!

Now I am reading up about rooting this thing with TowelRoot...

GameStop. I really dislike buying anything from GameStop, but I realized this was the best option since it seems to sell out so fast.

Ordered on Best Buy, had to pay 350 including tax and express shipping, coz I wanted to import it through a friend. Ordered Sunday, delivered on Wednesday. She's reaching tomorrow! Can't wait to get my hands on the tab!

I'm getting worried though, seeing all the complaints about defective pieces. I hope it's a good one. I can't get it replaced if there is a problem

Picked mine up at Best Buy. Didn't have it in stock, and the website didn't allow for ship to store, so I went in and had them order it for me for pickup in the store. Ordered on the 6th, and it came on the 11th. ^^
