I'm seriously considering cancelling my order :( it's a lottery when the money comes out of my account and I can't justify having £530 just sitting there waiting. I may be stuck with my trusty dk2 for a while to come.

Hey Tony, with you set for May, it's possible as they clean out fraudulent orders you could move to April, but I doubt March. If they do what they did with the DK2 and there is a problem with the payment, they will notify you and give you a chance to update payment information. I assume you set up payment with Paypal? But if so and you don't leave that money in there, there will be a toggle before it ships. Worst case is you lose your position in line which you are thinking about doing anyway. But that gives you a chance to see how things go and push the decision out.

Just a thought. Fingers crossed it works out. :(

I'm brand new here. Just thought it a good idea to join. I pressed the button dead on 8am PST, and 35 minutes later I managed to confirm my order, dated April. I'm looking forward to the Rift's arrival, and some good info right here.

Cheers, Jim H.

Yeah, listen to Robert, Tony! No need to give up just yet!

And sorry to hear your wife doesn't approve, Robert! I've been wondering why I haven't seen you around as much lately, guess I got my explanation!

Don't do it Tony, you'll only regret it!

I think very few of us are luck enough to have £500+ sitting around, but I'm lucky that I've got a birthday between now and April which will offset some of the cost.

Tony. It's far easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. :evil:

I ordered, 3 minutes in was as fast as I could get it done. Expected in March. I'm a total convert since trying the DK2 in September. Haven't flown on a monitor since.

Also bought in for the pro version of flyinside. Thanks for a fantastic product Dan, can't wait to see it continue to improve.

I waited 12 hours due to time difference, a party and needing to sleep
I have to wait till June and now if you order its maybe July
Some of the supposed fraudulent purchases will be wiped and move everyone up in the queue
I have a 4K monitor and the grainy DK2 resolution is bugging me but the experience of 3D is too compelling
The hardware is going to advance very quickly as competition inspires a frantic set of competetitive improvements

I ordered mine 44 minutes from start. The transaction through Paypal went flawless and no delay. I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Mine ships on April. It will be here in no time. Its been almost a month now I pre ordered and it seems like a few days ago. If I'm happy with the DK2 for sure CV1 will be fine. :mrgreen:
