Anyone Buy a New Unit with 1.4 pre-installed

I just returned my unit to Walmart (Canada, British Columbia) with no problems even after several months of use at least. They unfortunately don't have any more and am not sure when they'll be carrying them again.

I'm still debating whether to get another one (or something else), and am curious when the new batch with pre-installed firmware will be distributed. I know it sounds like a silly question but are these new devices with new firmware being thoroughly tested? It's unclear to me whether the problems I and others were experiencing (lockups, etc) were due to a bad flash or a defect in the firmware itself.

I'm also curious to hear what people are experiencing with new units that have 1.4 installed previously...whenever that happens. No sense getting a perfectly good unit by mail order only to wreck it with a firmware upgrade.
