I have been buying some new ones cheap. Not everything, just movies that I really like. I would like to find Twister at a cheap price, but apparently not many were printed and are harder to find, thus keeping the prices up.

For $39.99 you can't go wrong, even if your Xbox RRoD's you can still move the HD Drive on Fleabay, and pick up a stand-alone, or sell off the HD DVD's. I've been going to iNetvideo.com, good prices, and a nice selection.

I swore to myself not to buy any more HD DVDs, but fell off the wagon after several months; these Amazon/traderbora prices are hard to resist. What's funny is I'm still finding movies I haven't seen...

I think my problem is that I've got all the ones that are out there that I want that are being clearanced out. Not too much left at the usual places for a decent price.
post #99 of 126
Yeah, me too. I have almost all I need so it's hard to put together enough titles from one place to qualify for free shipping. To get those last few I want, I'll have to pay a bit more but still a good deal compared to the SD DVD version.

you can also hook that drive up to a PC if your 360 red rings... provided the PC isn't too slow

also just ordered a couple more

The image quality of this movie is no better than SD. At least the USA version.

it seems to me it is better than the euro dvd which I have seen a couple of years ago that was not good at all, so this way at least I have the film for the first time. it`s not spectacular by any means, but at a glance it seemed fine. possibly they made a new encode. this one has the time bar when you pause it, did the US version have it too? besides it was the only one interesting I have seen at the gamestop where I bought it. the selection was only universal titles, maybe 10 or 12 of them.

I don't know... Jenny Agutter in HiDef looked real good in the buff.

Seriously, though dark scenes look average and not much better than the latest SD DVD, they are loaded with atmosphere (dark, rainy, gloomy England). And many parts of the movie look great. I wouldn't use it to impress friends but am glad I could buy one of my favorite movies in HD at such a great price.

I bought Superman Returns and Fast Times at Ridgemont High both for around $6 new at Amazon Marketplace. I'm loving these deals!
post #107 of 126
Due to the recent sale at inet (and DD, and Amazon, and Discovery), I think I have finally completed my last HD purchases.

How many you ask? More than I thought I would ever buy...but at $3, $4 and $5 a pop, it's really hard to resist the temptation. You can't get DVD's for that price. I'm up to 450 HD titles (that's it...really) and 150 BD titles (almost all at $10 each...not as sweet as HD...but who's complaining?).

I added Galaxina to my collection. It was cheap and not available on Blu-ray.
post #109 of 126
Just got Deliverance for $10 and bought a "like new" (fingers crossed that is true) Star Trek TOS Season 1 for $50, both including shipping. Didn't expect to get either but those were pretty good prices.

That's probably it for me. Until the next good deal comes along...

Well you can just walk into Walmart and buy a brand new ST TOS S1 for like $45 anytime.
post #111 of 126
Strange that they still carry ST on HD; is there simply a glut of this title? I'll pick it up when they lower the price a bit more.

It is the only version of Season 1 available on DVD, although I would imagine if they were to reprint it, they would be DVD only instead of the hybrid discs.

There was one copy at my local Walmart. I was tempted to buy...
post #117 of 126
Every single Wallyworld I go into here in Michigan has plenty of copies on the shelf.

Their online price is a rip though. I wonder if they will price match themselves?
post #118 of 126
qz3fwd, you're right! My local WalMart hasn't had them every time I checked but today I was passing by another so stopped in and sure enough they had the combo version for $49.99. Oh well, so far the lightly used copy I got online seems ok.

Anybody looking for this HD DVD might want to stop in their local WW. Never know, the karma might be just right with today the 40th anniversary of the original moonwalk. Not that thingie by Michael Jackson.

For Canadians: HMV (in South Shore Montreal, at any rate) just received a shipment of about 20 titles--all selling at 4 for 20$ or 6$ each. Not the best price available, but with no shipping costs, still fairly competitive (I bought four). Some titles include the original Getaway, Transformers, The Searchers, Talk to Me, World Trade Towers, Beowulf, Unleashed, Brokeback Mountain, Animal House, Disturbia (all I can recall off the top of my head--there were at least half a dozen more). Just FYI

The funny thing is -- they actually won't! I tried purchasing an item in-store with a price match to their online price, and they wouldn't do it.
