where are you seeing it listed for that cheap? All I see is $29.99 for 3 years on a tv bought for 0-199. 40% of $29.99 isn't $9.


The display isn't considered a TV, it's considered a monitor. Monitor Warranty is $15 and the 40% off makes it $9.

"One thing to establish straight away is that the PlayStation 3D Display isn't an HDTV as such: there's no aerial socket and no on-board TV tuner. Instead this is a monitor with connectivity designed to target a range of external multimedia devices while offering up an affordable small-screen solution for those wanting to enter into the 3D arms race without the space for a gigantic HDTV."

My Dishonored for the PS3 shipped today :-). It will be a couple weeks before I can play it but at least it's on its way.

Best Buy just called to try and fulfill my order... and the system wasn't letting them. I told them I'd call back Friday and see how things shake out (it'll auto-cancel on Saturday anyway)

I have my doubts, but you never know what'll show up in a warehouse somewhere.

From what I have read, units that are sent to Sony have a much higher probability of not breaking. These things are massively defective.


Thats not true at all.

People who have sent them to Sony in many cases have had to send them 4-5 times.

If you go on the official sony forums and other places there is no difference in the ones sent back from sony.... sure some people may have success but that goes both ways

Everything else shipped but the display. I'm still getting a shipping label message, does that mean it's getting backordered?

I wouldn't worry if the shipping label was already created. My tracking info finally updated on the UPS website after 3 days. Don't know about the "preparing order" one though.

BTW, is anyone getting bonus gamer RZ points for this display? Pending points only show the 99, but I forgot if the gamers club bonus shows up only after posting.

Also read that BB might consider this a "hardware" item instead of a PS3 accessory so it wouldn't qualify.

Mine still says preparing order. Going to be a little mad if I don't get this, already spent $35 on an extra set of glasses and display adapter.

The many benefits include:

  • 2X points on new game software
  • 10% off pre-owned games
  • At least $100 in coupons with each issue of @Gamer

It doesn't matter if its hardware or accessory, you only get double points on game software.

When best buy or any other retailer sends you a "shipping confirmation" email, it just means they have it in the trailer. The trailers are owned by the shipping company (UPS, FedEX, etc...) that are parked at there warehouses until its time for the shipping companies to come pick up. Only FedEx was open after Thanksgiving, UPS didn't start up again until late Saturday.

Did Best Buy have any documentation on these deals? I tried to order from Best Buy, but none of the stores near me had the 3D display in stock, and I will have to try PMing at Walmart.

Eh, the big chart from the Rewards Zone site under the Gamers Club tab >
Gamers Club Benefits it highlights in the first row:

"Get 2x points on new game software, digital content and game accessories"

Finally got an email confirmation stating my display is shipped. Got a tracking # but UPS only says that the shipping label was printed only.
Was part of the group that purchased it when it came back instock briefly midday on Thanksgiving.
Still no word on my extra paid of Sony 3D Glasses.

... and today I returned my previous DotD display and 3d glasses (and partial warranty return, as they deducted a month for $0.80).

I've had some make me do it, and others have said I don't need to. I would first call 1-800-BestBuy to see if they can add it over the phone. That would be the easiest way to get it done in my opinion since they know you haven't received it and are therefore not trying to scam them.

I got the ps3 display on Black Friday in store because i missed it online. So i braved a ridiculous line and had this little gem targeted as my number 1 priority. I was in the part of the line that stretched behind the store so i had my doubts. Line moves into the store and its complete havoc. I rush to the ps3 section and to my surprise, I found one sitting on the shelf labeled at $179.99. Amongst the pandemonium I was looking around and amazed that no one knew how much it really was. Not wanting to run because I was afraid of being tackled if someone saw what I was going for, I casually walked up and grabbed it. My bf was complete. Anyhow, street fighter looks beautiful on this thing. I can't be more happier with my hadoukens, they look so crispy.

So, what I'm really writing about is if anyone has any experience with square trade. I'm trying to get a quote and can't decide on the value of the monitor? Do I type in $299? 179.99? Or 99.99(the actual cost on the receipt)? I know the value is more than that but what is square trade asking? The receipts value or the market value? I'm thinking about getting a warranty because I'm scared it may break since everyone is saying it will. So far though like I was saying, my hadoukens are coming out nice and smooth. Thanks for the help.

Even with it's reputation, I don't see the value of paying such a high percentage of the cost on a warranty. I think it's been said unless the warranty is less than ~10% of the cost, don't bother. Unless bestbuy has some newer fixed display to give you when it breaks, you might as well have just bought another and store it in your closet as a $100 warranty. If it's bad, it will probably die within the first year FREE warranty anyway.
