"I ordered my M1330 on 22 July, and got an estimate of delivery on or before 24 August - I today received an updated delivery date of 8 October. Eleven weeks since ordering, in other words. The website still shows lead times of four to five weeks, which is the same information I got from the phone sales guys, so someone is being lied to. What's made me furious is they took the money from my credit card last week in full, in direct contravention to their promises of payment on shipping."
