Same here.
I was charged on the 12th.
No items were backordered at the time of the order.

But they did post this today at another site (so hopefully it'll be soon):

Another 50+ back orders going out today, however this may not be indicated on support page on our site since fulfillment center had to manage much of this off-line. Nearing completion of backlogs. Thanks for patience. Systems running fine for new and future orders.

Yeah, I haven't received my order from the 5th yet, either--although both the ones I ordered were out of stock at the time.

I actually got an email today with a tracking number saying that my order from the 6th was processed.

Re: Kino Studio Classics 'Launch' Sale - Ends August 6, 2017

Next question -- is it the correct order or another Buffalo tracking number.

I got a tracking number a week ago for a package that was delivered nearly 2 weeks earlier. Turned out when I looked at the email, the tracking number was the same as on my 1st package, but the link had changed to FedEx rather than USPS. I then got a delivery of my 1 backordered item that never did get a tracking number attached to the order nor emailed to me.

First order now has 3 tracking numbers (2 identical) attached -- the real one and a Buffalo tracking number that was attacked a week after the 1st one, then the repeat of 1st one 10 days later.

The 2nd order that had 1 Backorder among the items had 2 tracking numbers -- a real one and one that attached to a delivery in Gettysburg, but not the number for the backordered item.

The good news is all my items are delivered, but the fun never stops with this sale. Hopefully by Labor Day everybody will have there full orders in hand

Re: Kino Studio Classics 'Launch' Sale - Ends August 6, 2017

Kinda had the same issue, I think. I had my packages delivered, and I missed that one title was missing from both shipments. Logged them into DVD Profiler as owned. Few days later, I get two separate mailers from Kino, and I'm like, "What, I ordered more?" Anyway, I wasn't updated on the new tracking numbers, and I never checked. Wasn't updated that the 2 titles I ordered were backordered, either.

Luckily, I got the titles or I would have overlooked them entirely. My mistake really since I didn't physically make sure all the titles were received. Would have been looking for those 2 titles forever.

Re: Kino Studio Classics 'Launch' Sale - Ends August 6, 2017

Checked the contents of my 30 title order of 8/5 and I received 2 copies of 'Night People' while missing another title. The folks over at Kino were nice enough to have the missing title shipped while asking me to keep the extra copy of 'Night People'.

If someone else has had similar experience and has extra copies of any other title, PM me if if you'd like a trade with 'Night People'. Thanks. Please note that both copies I received are floaters but I inspected one of them and thanks to BD's protective surface, there's no issues.

On a somewhat related note, its appalling as to how many titles in the order are floaters - I had 9 titles out of 30 that were floaters, they really need to pull up the manufacturing process.

Interesting. I think I only had one out of close to 50 items. Again -- I love BD scratch resistance. There were some advantages of HDDVD back when, but those things never came scratch free though rarely affected playback. OTOH, even as careful as I am handling discs I've done some terrible things with BD's and never had an issue

Out of curiosity, did anyone that order 'Deluge' receive it with a slip cover ? Bluray.com shows a slip for the listing but the title on Kino's site does not

I didn't order it but thought it did. Weird. Not a bad price at the moment.

I got my order from the 6th back on Friday. Everything came pristine except a slightly messed up copy of Lifeboat.

My 6 movie order from Aug 6th did arrive Saturday, along with a live insect in the box. Long, black, lots of legs. It sort of looked like a silverfish, but I'm guessing was a centipede. I'm not very familiar with those though.

I remember when 800.com would send popcorn and Red Vines with my DVDs.

I got my order from the current sale that ends in 3 days. Ordered on September 1, received September 8. Not bad considering they didn't start processing the orders until Tuesday due to the holiday.
