View Full Version : Problem getting 942's

Anyone else having a problem getting a 942? I have been waiting 2 weeks. I am using a private installer and was third on his list, now at the top, but still. He says the 942's are few and far between. I did notice that Fry's had one on the shelf for $700 and I see them on eBay. Whats up with that?

Local retailers have or order through Dish Echo Sphere. I think there are 4 distribution centers.
When you order directly through Dishnetwork on there 1-800 number (the one on www.dishnetwork.com (www.dishnetwork.com) )
They drop ship the 942 straight from the wharehouse bypassing the Echosphere center.
I got mine in 3 days 2nd day air.

I placed an order through Dishstore.net (Site Sponsor) and had a 942 in my grubby little mitts in less than a week.

Ordering directly from Dish Network, mine took 13 days to arrive and came by UPS 2-Day Air.
<sum>what kind of cost differentials are you guys paying? Perhaps the middleman adds cost markup as well as time to delivery. mike

I picked up mine on ebay for 600.00 shipped!
Then I returned my 921 to costco for 540.00 refund....
Sometimes things just go your way :-)

I received mine 6 days after my initial order. However it has developed a problem that will require it to be returned. I am told the replacement will take about 24-48 hours to process and I should expect it 3 days after that.
This is all straight from Dish.

My retailer (Auburn) has about a 5 day lag from order to install. Maybe you need to change retailers... :-)
Do you need a Club Dish pass for your install? I've got a couple and it will save you $50.

How exactly does all this 942 talk qualify as "VOOM News and Developments"?
