Default LG Blu Ray / HD DVD combo player SOLD OUT?!?!?

Are these guys at Best Buy seriously on drugs? Up until yesterday, they told us that this thing is "Backordered!" So I look at the site today, and it's sold out??? Whatever! I'm not going to bother with LG anymore at this point. I'll gladly wait for the Samsung.

I don't believe the player has actually been released yet. No one anywhere reports it in stock. The "backordered" status is likely just an error.

Default They're lame.

The Best Buy site, said backordered, for God knows how long now, and no they're just saying sold out. LOL. It's pretty funny. Any word on release dates on these damned things??

I think on AVS some people have purchased them but in the cross format section people have reported the same problem. Even a report from LG the player was pushed back to sometime in Dec. Who knows whats going on.

Default Official word from Samsung??

Been searching google and apparently there's been an official word on their player? But I can't find anything on the Samsung site. It's apparently coming within two weeks!!! Onsale.com is already taking orders! 799!!! Can anyone find the official press release?

There is one on display at every Best Buy around here. However, there are no units available for sale. I think that was the point trying to be made.
