Mine hasn't been updated since either, I was optimistic it may have been delivered yesterday, but never happened, and today isn't looking good either (status hasn't changed on amazon.de)

Stuff from Europe has reached a standstill. Planes are being unloaded but the quantities are so huge getting items scanned onto receiving systems has a massive backlog.

Just for those wanting something more local, see examples below from Currys (presumably similar in DID/Powercity etc).
Sometimes there are bargains to be had a bit nearer by.

2 for €359

Hisense TVs available in Argos at decent prices. My 50in Philips died after three years.

Got the 4k 55in Roku for €390 which is a bargain IMO. 50in is €350. 43in is only €290.

55" TV arrived yesterday (ordered from Spanish website). 1 week after the expected date, but probably due to covid.

Great customer service and communication from power planet, would use them again.

Early impressions: Delighted with the TV. Played some 4k YouTube content to test it out and it is amazing. Like 3D without wearing the glasses.
I would attach a photo but it wouldn't do it justice.

Sound seems fine, although I'm not using it, I have my own surround sound set up.

TV is fast to load, install apps etc.

Netflix/Amazon prime pre installed. Simple to install Disney +. No need to sideload.

I like the remote, like anything it takes a bit of getting used to, but it's fine.

I had originally planned to have it in spare room for matches etc, but ended up replacing main TV with it.
So far so good.

Mine arrived this morning (about ten minutes ago) by anpost, which I have to admit was pleasantly surprising.

Will open the box to check it's contents and then put it through its paces after a while.
