I'd been searching for a 2nd new BH200 at a good price. Best I found in the past 3 months were on E-Bay, starting at $400-$500!

Local Best Buy had a BH200 on display...has been there for 3 months with No inventory back up (discontinued) and only a 10% mark down (no box, no remote, no cables, no power cord, no paperwork...Zippo, just a scratched display).

Well, I offered $150 As-Is. Mng said he couldn't let it go for less than $199. They offered a power cable and an order with LG for the remote. Selling it as a new unit, so I bit the bullet. Got it home, works Perfect.

Then I called LG, gave them the SN and they offered to send me the $75 Rebate & a Remote!!! Guess luck was on my side...$125 total for a "new" warranty BH200 with cord and remote...really not a bad deal considering All of the 176 Blu's and 104 HD-DVD HDM movies I've invested in!

Ted

BTW: 1st BH200 purchased in Nov...Loads QUICK, Plays Flawlessly, is Very Quiet and is Built Extremely Well, Love It!!!

141" of High Definition - 67" + 42" + 32" !!!

Congrats!

That blows that they wouldn't drop the price down lower.

Just goes to show that sometimes you get a manager who will deal lower than another one.

Overall, still not bad for an original $1000+ retail player!

BTW, 7 days after talking to LG, my replacement remote came in!! Still awaiting the $75 rebate but so far, very happy with LG's CS!

This value keeps climbing, and climbing... original MSRP was $899 and then quickly dropped to $699. But, still a great deal for a BR/HD-DVD player!

I got mine as an open item from best buy a few weeks ago for $99 and I just received my $75 rebate. So $24 for the player was well worth it!!!

Just got my check in today. It is the easiest $75 I have ever made back! Sent it off on June 26th, and got the check July 13th. Not bad at all.

Hurry and cash it before LG enables BD-Live.

Well, believe it! As of this morning the new firmware is available from the LG update server (through the BH200) and it does enable BD-Live. Sadly, it doesn't deliver on some other much needed issues, but it is available.
