ive known for quite a while that i wanted an hd-dvd player, however, i was afraid to bite the bullet - when the xbox 360 add-on dropped down to $179, i ALMOST jumped on it there - the only thing that stopped me was the fact that i dont have an hdmi output on my 360 and wanted to take advantage of the upscaling of sd dvds
i ordered the a2 on thursday night for $99 - and let me tell you how pleasantly surprised i was when i got the email informing me that my order would be upgraded to an a3 - ill be going back later this week to get my third free hd-dvd (they were only giving away 2 when i picked mine up) so, needless to say, im thrilled
all in all, due to a best buy online error, im coming away with 12 free hd-dvds and a toshiba hd-a3 for a grand total of $108.99 (in addition to the 2 free hd-dvd's i picked up in-store, bb.com is shipping me another 2) - thats a deal i just could NOT pass up
and do i "like" the fact that some hd-dvd's are $30? not really - but ive purchased a few and ordered a few more online - none of them were over $19.99 (with the exception of the total recall import i ordered) - thats something i can definitely live with
i watched the bourne identity last nite - after that, im glad to say i have NO regrets whatsoever!
