I for one did not know about this waiting game we call phases. The reason for that is that I had not read these forums before I placed my order at AW. When I placed the order, I saw the estimated date on the screen, and took that for granted (As you do on any other web based sales site, newegg, buydig etc. only difference is, these sites operate with real estimated ship dates).
I did not stumble over this site until a couple of days later, when I was out looking for some info on my coming Sentia.
I like this forum a lot! You get to complain, argue and brag about everything and nothing within these pages, and nobody can hold it against you. Don't get me wrong, someone might get a little bit out off hand en turn just plain st0pid in their arguments, but in general I don't think these phase complaints are bad at all.
I vote that AW should take of their "estimated ship date" off the web site, I know it's a sales tool, but come on, AW has enough marketing and sales tools out there to keep them busy for at least 5 years! Their good at marketing and their even better making system that we all love! I think taking this sales tool away, will make people less "whiny", because they won't get disappointed. Keep in mind there is a lot of people out there that don't read these forums, or any other forums for that matter.
