Let us know if the price has dropped more. $10 is borderline price for me, I really want $7, since I rarely care to watch movies more than once.

I for one was not tickled with the prices. many of those movies they had I got at amazon
on a day they were on sale or price cut and in original Bluray cases.
I did buy a few discounted used ones...must have come from a BlockBuster store some
where else as the used the same DVD sized case.

Amazon is my number 1 source for blu's. Probably 85% of my collection has been bought through them. Their prices on average just cannot be beat by any brick and motor store.

OK, I'll see if there is a good time in the coming weeks.

Bought a bunch of unboxed blu-rays at 5/$7.50 yesterday at the blockbuster... Boxed ones are down to $5.79...

On the bottom of the screen, click "go advanced". Then click insert file. Select the pictures and upload. This will attach it as a thumbnail. If you want to insert the pic inline with text, close the window, then click on the attachments button again, and your photo will be listed. click on it, and it will be inserted in the text

bcms6,
So when are we going to meet at your house with my HSU VTF15H. Thinking about getting one more for the left side. We can also do a movie night at my house on Saturday or Sunday if you guys like.

Yes I know... been a bit busy working on my car and trying to balance it with the fam.... Weekends are too short, wish I lived in Germany so I could have a gazzillion vacation days and holidays.

.... But I really want to try out the sub. How is Feb 25th weekend? Saturday AM may be best (wife takes kids to classes), but am open to other times too.

Lucky: nice! I'd love to have a dedicated HTPC someday.

Folks, Here's an idea, Jsil and I live very close to each other. We can go to my place for a couple hours, grab a bite, then Jsil's for a movie. Thoughts?

I'm cool with that. You still want me to bring a 505 with me to demo at your place? It wont hold a candle to Jsils sub though.

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!

Jason: Up to you. Maybe you'll make Jsil feel bad though if his sub is only twice the performance at 4x the cost...

Jsil, could you bring your sub interconnect too?

Your one monster sub isn't enough??
