Well, since I had off work today I thought I would try to pick up the Harry Potter DVD for my daughter. What an adventure that was. First of all, CompUSA had the DVD on sale for $9.99 with a free mousepad. Not a bad deal. I arrived at the store 10 minutes before they opened and there was already a line. Then, I found out that they only had 100 copies. No biggy, I was pretty far up in the line. When I got into the store they had two shelves with Harry Potter DVD's. I picked one up but quickly realized that it was a full screen version. I asked the attendant where the widescreen versions were. He said that out of the 100 DVD's, only 10 of them were widescreen and they were the first to go. To me, this is good news and bad news. First, it's good to know that the widescreen versions were the first to go. This shows that more and more people are aware of the benefits. The bad news is that there were 50 other people there that didn't know the difference so several of us hung around to explain it to them (which made the attendants mad because the customers ended up walking out of the store without buying the DVD). CompUSA really blew it today with me and I will probably not go in there for quite some time. I ended up going to Best Buy. Boy did they come through. They must have had a thousand copies and most were in widescreen for $16.99. They also had a nice little table setup with balloons for the kids and other Harry Potter items such as games. By the way, I also stopped in to Wal-Mart. All they had left were some VHS copies. That was actually pretty cool because it shows that the DVD's are going first. Back a couple of years ago, the VHS copies on a major release would always go first. DVD is here to stay! Anyway, just thought I would share my little adventure today. I'm not a Harry Potter fan and have not seen the movie but will probably watch it tonight with my daughter. I'm actually looking forward to it mainly for the effects and the music.
