I went into the Magnolia room and dug around through all the cabinets and half way through the room.... lo and behold, a BH200 sitting in an empty cabinet not connected to anything. After 2 1/2 hours of waiting for help and finding the power cable and remote, the salesman says that they sale for $299.99 but since it's an open box how about $250. I say how about $200? And well, for $199.99, I've got another BH200. Another salesman then steps in and says, oh, the player has problems with DVDs. I get it home and yes it has problems because it still had the original firmware. Updated everything and all is well. So, after LG rebate, I'm looking at $125. I now believe in deals to be found, even at BB.
Yep, if you look hard enough, good deals can
be found......even at BB.
I have gotten numerous sweet deals from BB over the last 6-7 months. You got a pretty nice deal @ $125 with the remote and power cord. It's possible that you may have been able to get them to come down even further if you referenced it's problem with DVDs, but you did fine......good job!
For $125, not bad for a 1.1 player that can play 3 formats, look pretty sexy(for a machine) and have the same Qdeo video processor that Pioneer chose to put in their $2200 Elite BDP-09FD player.
