Help Where did you buy your P3?

So I've decided it's finally time to upgrade from an 8gb Zen Microphoto and two 6gb Ipod Minis with broken screens to one MP3 player that actually works well. I've done a lot of research and come up with the P3 16gb, the only drawback I can see is the lack of capacity offered by anything using Flash. But I can't seem to find anywhere reputable to buy it from, Amazon does not seem to be carrying it, nor Newegg or Tigerdirect. I live in Portland, Oregon, so if you know any US retail stores that carry it that would be good too. I see that some place called B&H in New York has it for 200$, has anyone bought theirs from them? Also, I'm worried about shipping prices if I did that. Anyway, I was just wondering where you guys can reccomend purchasing from, thanks. Looking forward to getting my P3

EDIT: I'm interested in the 32gb as well, but I couldn't really find any, so information on that is more than welcome.

Heh, the P3 hasn't been released in the U.S yet. B&H are just taking "Pre-Orders" for people who want to assuredly get one. Pretty weird how we're one of the last countries to get the P3. Just wait another 3~5 days, then check back on the status of the P3. Currently, it is not possible to get a P3 from U.S retailers as far as I know. (By the way, Best-Buy has dropped the P2 from their shelves, giving an indicator that the P3 will emerge from the dark-depths very soon). Good luck.

EDIT: I'm sorry, I didn't actually answer your question. People got their P3s early (in the U.S) by online sellers not located in the U.S. Others sent in their broken P2 and got a replacement P3. But at this point in time, I'd say it would be wise to just wait the extra few days.

I got mine in Future Shop over Canada. If you board KLM and fly internationally, you can find it being sold onboard and you can easily pick one up in European outlets. I saw them in Saturn over Germany.

Watch http://shop1.frys.com/product/589805...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

I got lucky and was able to snag on Monday night when they still had them in stock on-line. With 2-day shipping a 16GB one is $210. That's the only retailer I've seen that has them available.

in the UK i got mine from play.com

16GB unit for 139

http://www.play.com/Electronics/Elec...r/Product.html

good price, for comparison the cowon S9 inthe UK for 16GB is just over 200 GBP and that is not including the TV out and line in cables that need to be bought seperate, all-in-all a much better deal than the cowon for me

Please try to use punctuation and spell check. It would make your writing easier to read and would give a better impression of your intellect. I don't mean to disparage you because it happens very often on this site, however, your post was the final drop in the bucket that made it overflow.

I purchased mine at buy.com (8GB Black). They also have the 16 GB Black but unknown as to when it will be in stock again.

Here is the URL - but inventory is pretty sporatic.
