I bought one at Circuit City new in box a month ago for 315$ I was happy with that price considering the 75$ rebate. Best Buy had a demo with no remote for 260$ but I thought that was too much.

I think a demo with remote should go for 199$ or less and with no remote 150$ or so.

I found one at my local CC yesterday for $275.00

It seemed like a bit much but I know every time that I look for a dual format player online it is that much or more. With this 75.00 rebate I might just go ahead and pull the trigger on it.

It has one of the blu ray demo disks in it and that disk does play when I checked it today. I will try and talk them down some more tomorrow but if they don't budge I will still be really tempted to get it.

Does anyone think that price is a good one or not?

Feeling the Purple Power thanks to HD DVD and Blu Ray.

Is it new in box? If not, does it include the remote?

Just be aware that they are not accepting returns or exchanges under the "All Sales are Final" condition.

You might want to check the unit out in the store if you're able to hook it up to an HD display. Bring a Blu-Ray, HD-DVD and a stardard def DVD to check it out.

Or be prepared to get warranty servicing through LG.

You think the LG remote is worth as much as a Harmony? I'm happy to sell one for fifty bucks if so

Hoping some of you should be able to help me. On Dec. 11th, per the instructions in this forum, I called LG and filed my claim for the $75 rebate. I talked to a Supervisor named Chad that put through everything for me and told me to expect that the check would take approximately 10 business days.

On Jan. 9th, I still had not received my check and e-mailed this same Chad. He told me that the rebate had been sent out and that it could take 15-21 business days and that the holidays could have slowed it down. Now it being February 8th I still have not received my rebate.

I was wondering if any of you have had any similar issues or have any recommendations on what my next step would be.

Same thing here. LG is not replying to my emails regarding my rebate and the phone calls there have been useless. I bought three to these because the rebate made it a good deal. I got one out of the three rebates and was told the other two would arrive shortly....2 months ago. Several follow-up emails.phone calls and nothing yet.

Finally got the check Friday. Didn't look previously, so it probably came the day before. In all, it took four calls to LG to get the ball rolling. The last time I called (approx 2.5 weeks ago), I did as some suggested and requested to be transferred to the BD-Live Dept.

I was in the same boat, I submitted my rebate claim around the same time as you and was beginning to wonder what the hold up was. I contacted LG 2 weeks ago and they said there was a slow down because of the holidays. I then got my check last week. So, hang tight, they are a comin'!

You should follow up again. I would call and ask for the BD Live Rebate Dept, and make sure they have your info. Sometimes it might take a couple of calls to get to the correct dept.

Even though I got the 'stimulus' check a week ago, today I received an email from someone at LG saying something to the effect that it's "on the way, thanks for your business", blah, blah, etc. This comes after registering the unit on their site, four phone calls and finally just sending my address with attached pics of receipt via email.

"I knew you'd say that"...*BLAM!*

Faxed my rebate info on Feb 9th got my check today (Feb 17th), got my unit at CC liquidation for $149 minus the rebate makes it a net of $75, also it would not update the firmware, so they sent me a shipping label and replaced the mainboard in it and updated the firmware. Got the unit back about 9:30 AM today via FedEx and my check about 11:00 AM via USPS.

WOW!! Great deal. I picked one up today at the Circuit City close out for $240 without power cord (they claimed Radio Shack sold these separately). So, I don't know yet if it even works but it should be under a warranty if it does not and the $75 rebate will bring the price down to under $200 so I am happy with that.

On the other hand mine was slow. However there were several back and forths because the receipt I submitted did not have a date on it.

Emailed 12/29
Check received 2/23

Give them a call. They forgot about mine from November, too. After I called about 2 weeks ago, I received a check in another week.

received email confirmation from LG on 2/9
received the check in the mail about a week after 2/9

Thanks for the OP! I have BH200 for three months and no problem at all (so far...)

I'm still surprised it came so fast. Usually they at least wait until the return period expires before sending out any rebates. Heck, I could return it now and keep the $75 rebate. Not that I'm going to do that, but still...

Anyways, sorry to hear everyone hasn't had the same experience.

I sent my stuff in about 3 weeks ago. They actually called today to say that the check had been returned and wanted to verify the address. They had dropped the unit number off the address and are sending it out again today. I was pleased that they were proactive and contacted me.

Edit to add: Have the check in hand now. Very pleased. TY LG.

Sent a follow up e-mail to Chad @ LG on 1/29 and received no response from him. Magically today I received my $75 check in the mail that was dated on 3/6. It only took a little under 4 months but I am glad to finally have received my check.
