    Amazon had a special back at Xmas if you bought 3 High Def Disc you would qualify for a one year 10% off all future High Def disc purchased through them. Very nice program for us early adopters.

    Thanks for the information. Maybe they'll offer it again this year, but I won't hold my breath. :)

    1.It is on par with the BDS-300

    2. It outputs true 1080p/24 thru hdmi 1.3

    3. It is hands down ranked as the best upscaler on the market. check hi-def digest

    4. it's not an add on it's built in.

    I find the advantage of wifi and increased load times make this a slam dunk choice at the new price range.

    Cholly if your looking for an A3 you can order it from hhgregg.com and have it shipped to your local HHGregg if its not already in the store.

    Edit: DAMN that was quick. UPS is delivering it today!

    I went to my local HHGregg this afternoon. They had 2 A3''s in stock, so I bought one at the $249 price.

    I saw that image at engadget, and honestly I've said before quite simply,

    "Whoever gets a player into Wal-Mart for $199 wins".

    We'll see if I'm right.

    Does that come with a bunch of free movies at that price? That might get me to jump off the fence. I wonder when one will show up on Woot. :lol:

    The A2 has the 5 free via mail. the A3 comes with two in the box and 5 free by mail. I believe the Wal-Mart model is the A2

    At a sub $200 price point I'd bet ALOT of players will be sold this holiday season.

    No doubt there.

    The sub $200 price range will have lots of people jumping on the HD-DVD side. I might even pick up another one for the bedroom.
