Let me tell you my friend, the private seller online route is the best method for HD DVD player and media deals. In the last month or so I have purchased an A35, XA2, A2, A20, and negotiating an XA1 through private online sellers for extremely low prices. In some cases they have receipt and warranty coverage.
Many folks are just wanting to give these away to either get some cash or to dump the format. Having paid $50 for an A30 at CC and getting 55% off of the 30% off prices on media at BB, I refuse to pay more than $7.00 for used titles or any more than 50% of LAST retail for players.
I use that as the starting point for negotiations with private, non AVS (read "Non informed") sellers. Once I hit them with the market information and my receipt proof most of the sellers are surprised and significantly lower their prices to recoup some of their investment while they can.
I love the AVS market and have used it but look at the relatively high price guys are asking (and getting) for used HD DVD media. The "outside" private world is still dumping cheaply for the most part.
