I tried to find open box deals at CC in San Diego (for both the HDV 420 and the Samsung T151) -- none of the local stores had any open box deals. They did have 1 last HDV 420 but they were not selling it as open box yet -- they were under the impression that they'd be getting more in.
I would just search for "Samsung SIR-T151" on ebay. After reading lots of reviews on cheap OTA set-tops, this one seems to be the "favorite" for the low low budget models.
I was watching auctions for the T151 on ebay for the last 3 weeks. The lowest i saw them go for was about 150, the highest was about 220. You should be able to find a good one for around 180 if you watch a few auctions. Make sure you read the auction page good though.... i saw a number of auctions for T151 that did NOT include remote -- for me that is a large problem.
