I know this isn't exactly Tivo-related, but I'm seriously contemplating getting a Tivo HD(upgrade from a DirecTivo Series 2). I was wondering approximately how fast Amazon Super Saver shipping is(mostly, how long it takes for them to get the Tivo out of the warehouse, and what method is used for shipping(ups, usps, fedex)). Anyone have some prior experience? I want to know so I can schedule a cable install as soon as the Tivo arrives(approximately). I'm in southern CT(not sure where the Amazon warehouse is).
For me, it took two days to ship and then another two days to be delivered. I ordered my Tivo HD from Amazon this past Sunday evening (October 7th) and selected the free super-saver shipping. It shipped on Tuesday, October 9th from Sparks, NV via UPS Ground. I received it at my home in Redmond, WA on Thursday, October 11th.
Note that at the time of order, Amazon quoted me an estimated ship date of October 12th (apparently, when you select free super-saver shipping, even if an item is in stock, they say it will take an additional 3 to 5 days for "processing" before it even ships) and an estimated delivery date of October 19th. But from past experience, I knew that Amazon's estimates are always grossly, shall we say, conservative (at least for the free super-saver shipping), and that in all likelihood, I would probably have product in hand much sooner than what they were estimating. And sure enough...
