For two weeks at least, there have been five used )open box) DVD recorders, HE59/69s available from B&H. This is unusual, to say the least. Frequently, in the past, an open-box EH5x would last only a day or two before disappearing. All I can guess is, with jjeff and I out of the buying market because our needs have been completely filled, they are just not selling.
Okay, no I don't think jjeff and I were the major purchasers of these machines, but it is a BIT suspicious.
The value is very good, IF you are in the market for one. I have purchased more than one used item from B&H and have always been completely satisfied.
