Premium 2 UK Release... When?

Does any one know if or when the Plextor Premium 2 is coming out here in the uk ? as i would like to replace my ever trusty 2410A with one.

The official release-date for Europe was June. The drive is available in Germany. There is one Forum member who has one.

However Plextors On-Line-Shop in Japan (https://www.plextor-direct.net/cgi-bin/WebObjects/plextor) keeps posting delay notices for the next shipments of available drives (latest example: https://www.plextor-direct.net/cgi-bin/WebObjects/plextor.woa/2/wa/news?wosid=0YqADbNng1X1t82ZRGv0dg&key=137). Either Plextor is having a problem in production or this drive is a hot seller in Japan and they’re not being able to keep up with production. So supply might be limited also in Europe and the drive thus hard to find.

OK thanks.
