I received a 10% discount using my Rewardszone card, so it cost $450 before tax.
I thoroughly enjoyed my first HD DVD at home--- Batman Begins, it was clear, crisp and a perfect picture as far as I am concerned.
I don't have a 5.1 system yet, so I ran the audio thru a pair of McIntosh MC-75's into a pair of JBL SRX-4732 Pro Audio speakers & there's a lotta sound, it's just not spaced right for the theater sound...
There were no glitches, pauses, or problems.
Now I gotta ask Santa for more HD titles...
My player is a November build, made in Japan.
I wonder if the Chinese builds begin in December?
After 2 1/2 hours it was only running warm, not hot.
All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase & would do it again!
