Sorry if this has been posted already.


Looks like it is on sale again at Best Buy for $240 (as of 1/28/08)

Personally I'm going to wait till the software side is more mature (I already have a Tosh A2).

Just take a look at all of the awesome releases coming out for HD-DVD in the next few months. Oh wait there are not any. I hate to say it but HD-DVD is on the way out and I have been a very big supporter of it. Trust me you want this drive at that price. The software is not there yet but it is a perfect match to go with your A2 for the time being. I bought mine when BB had the first sale and I have loved every second of it.


People underestimate the power of backing up YOUR movies. Trust me those HD-DVDs are very delicate.

I think we will see all HD-DVD players drop in price as Blu-Ray becomes the clear winner, even combo drives like these. Amazon just announced drops in all HD-DVD players of about $30.

"Circuit City dropping HD-DVD?



Circuit City in a not so surprising move has discontinued the HD-DVD format in favor of expanding it's Blu-Ray lineup.



Circuit City-long a unofficial supporter of Blu-Ray has always carried HD-DVD in limited quantities vs. it's Blu-Ray inventory. Sources say that this move is not a direct response to Warner studios announcements but more related to the lopsided sales makeup of Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD which in the past weeks has been 85:15 in favor of Blu-Ray says several industry sources



1080living.com contacted 7 Circuit City locations. 5 would not comment citing policies against disclosing merchandising changes, while 2 confirmed that the company has discontinued the HD-DVD format. One store manger informed us ," This move is for business reasons only as Circuit City is committed to the next generation of Hi Def DVD viewing. Based on company sales of the two formats which consisted of 87 percent for Blu-Disc and 13% for HD the company felt that now should be the time to fully commit our resources to one format. Circuit City is the leader of technology and this move again reinforces out commitment to offering out customers the very best available. We expect our competitors to follow suit shortly."



As a result, Circuit City stores will be placing all HD-DVD players on clearance and though no specific price has been announced we were told to expect players in the $100 range. "
