Time for a change request. The i-Pad app doesn't show titles in posts.

Tech For Less is advertising an open box Pioneer BDP-320 for $265 and a refurbished one for $238. Would those be a better deal than a brand new Panasonic BD85k for $170? Is Tech for Less a reliable supplier?

as good as the BDP320 goes, the refurb / open box are NOT worth the quoted amount. SOME local bestbuys may still try to dump their display / open box BDP-320s for under $100.

I don't think it's all that high considering you get 30 day return period and top rated service. I have no affiliation and have not purchased from this company.

I've watch Ebay for several months for a 320 and price for a used unit has been rising steadily along with new unused and these have no return no warranty. In my view $250 for a used unit without a return option is out of the question.

That leaves the $99 one at BBs. Might be alright. Though how long has it been since seeing one?

If you have never bought from them, then just how do you know that they give top rated service? And have you even fully read their return policy? Because if you read it, it notes that if you even open the box, then there is also a restocking charge for non defective returns. A 30 day return policy with a 15% restocking charge, is nothing great!



"30 Day Money Back Guarantee* If you are not completely satisfied with the product for any reason, you can return it for a refund (less the shipping charge) within 30 days from the date of receiving your purchase (except TVs). If the item has not been opened, there will be no restocking fee; however if the item has been opened there will be a 15% restocking fee applied. Your will either have your credit card credited or a check sent out to you for the refund amount, depending on your preference. We will process the refund within 48 hours of receipt of your returned merchandise. Items must be returned with the original double boxes and all accessories. If any accessories are missing, your refund will be delayed until the missing accessories are returned to us. You will need a return authorization number for return. please send us an e-mail"

How do I know they give top rated service. They have an excellent in-store rating and their ebay rating is 100% if memory serves. And yes I did read the return policy but you see I don't intend on returning unless there is a problem but if I decide to do so it wouldn't be exorbitant.

And price, $140 for a bdp 320 with a return policy is about the best one can find but maybe you know something I don't. On second thought, if I were you I'd buy locally.

BB has this Wi-Fi Netflix BD player for $90 this week. I got a virtually free $20 rebate on my Reward card account by email from BB ($1 per point) which had to be used by 12/24. I had a $10 gift card from a previous purchase which gave me my first BD player for $60 plus tax. The Wi-Fi, WPA encoded installed flawlessly. No BD's yet but Pandora Radio and DVD's work perfectly.

If it isn't 720p or 1080i/p it isn't HD. If it is 720p or 1080i/p it may not be HD content.

Oh really you don't think that eating the shipping cost for two ways and then also paying the 15% restocking charge onto that is not a lot to pay? Sorry, but with the combined shipping cost for sending it both to you and then the return back to them at roughly about $35-$40, and then adding on the 15% restocking fee onto that. That all adds up to somewhere about $58-$62, which is getting very close to 1/2 of the $140 selling price of the item.

Saw one a couple of weeks ago, though with no remote or power cord and with two drawers full of demo remotes, couldn't find a functioning one to test it. They wouldn't include a power cord or remote of any type nor budge on the $100 (not $99) price plus no refund or store credit if I wasn't satisfied with it, so was a waste of time for me.

Let's back up. The op was asking about Tech for Less and a refurbed bdp 320 for $238. They also have a restocking fee of 20% within 30 days and a warranty of 90 days. I wanted the op to at least know about united so he would have something to compare.

I would not purchase if I intended to send it back, this isn't window shopping, one buys with the intent to keep.

not intending to endorse any particular person or merchant (and not trying to contradict my earlier post), I do believe unitedonlineshopping is a reasonable supplier for BDP-320
Unlike most commercial online outlets, they have been around specializing with pioneer products for several years and carries a small but reasonable reputation.

Currently most existing Bestbuy BDP320 closeout units are beat-up display models likely w/o remote / documentations / cables. The only positive is they will not be DOA units but probably carry considerable hours on the laser.
Power cords / cables are cheap, but to purchase a genuine Pio BDP remote is likely a $40-50 venture in itself.

To each its own. Having 2 reasonable BDP-320 sources is better than none. This model has done well for its time and served its place in the books of BDP.

True, but a universal JP1 remote can control anything at best buy. Absolutely every function can be added, and these remotes are only $1 (15-133, 15-134).

Just scored a Denon DBP-1611UD from EE for $284 with free shipping and no tax. This was the best deal I could find. I just used their chat function and asked for their price. They only had a few in stock.

I wish that I could found a deal like that. but I found a Panasonic Bdt300 at Vero Beach for 239.00 dollars it was the only one they had. had to drive 100 miles to get it. The 3D that is checkerboard is a dream, the CD sound is super nice. It has tube sound that is develop by the owner of panasonic and is very close to the av tube sound. can not complain at all. And the price beat those prices that they have arround for 400.00 and 450.00 dollars. So far I am happy. On the weekend I will try different things with it.

Looks like there's a panny player on sale today at Fry's for those who missed out over the holidays:
http://shopping.dallasnews.com/ROP/a...vid=2519&type=

I think the SKU is a misprint because frys.com shows a HTIB set... could it possibly be a BD65K? I'm not going to find out because I got one from best buy over the thanksgiving weekend

Yeah, if it's just a BD45K, then it's not that much of a deal.
The Best Buy sale on the BD65K a month ago was much better! I ended up paying only $80 because I had a $20 gift card from last Christmas (that's how often I go to Best Buy )!

It was by chance I got it too... I wasn't even looking for a BD player, but was camera shopping instead.
