I like My A-2, plays regular DVD’s the best of any player I own. HD DVD’s look awesome as well,. Hopefully my 5 movies will still show up as I sent the form in right after I got the player when the $100 sales happened.
I went out last week and found a Panasonic PBD-10a BD player on demo clearance sale for 169 seeing how it was obvious HD was loosing quickly and who knows if the players will drop in price faster now that there is nothing to compete against 'cept dvd.
The Panny is built like a tank, also plays regular dvd’s very nicely, and has a ton of extras the entry level Toshiba can’t match, except that at least the HD player is full spec :a
I was hoping this would drag out a while longer to keep prices on movies and players dropping. Let’s hope sony/BD doesn’t get even more greedy and stop all the good deals.
