For some reason Amazon is getting their Panasonic DMP-BD30 players from two "featured merchants" that are charging $750 for it. Though the Panasonic DMP-BD30 is in short supply at the moment I am surprised that Amazon can list the price for it at $1000 which is twice the MSRP. Even if that is legal it seems highly immoral since it gives the false impression that the Panasonic DMP-BD30 is selling for $250 under MSRP when it is actually being sold for $250 over MSRP.

I think that both are complementary models so most likely it is just a supply issue and the demand for it might have been a lot higher than Panasonic predicted.
