Default Just bought XA2 for $317 on overstock.com

Its a refurbished unit, BUT, comes with a 90 day return policy, no questions asked. I have an A2, but after reading so much about the upconversion, I just had to get it. Was this a good deal?

that about the going rate. refurb depot wants 299.95 plus i think around 20 for shipping. Ubid has them for 259.00 and 35 shipping (they were goining for 228 + shipping a week ago, wish I had jumped on one then). so all things considered you didnt do to bad.

I am a little concerned about these players being refurbished.
I was thinking about it but, the refurbished thing kinda pushing me away from them.

Me too, but then after speaking with them, they assured me that once it arrived, if I wasn't satisfied for any reason, I could return it for full refund. That sold me.

Ubid in the past few weeks has had two lots of 45 and a couple lots of 25, besides all the refurbs at Overstock & other places. I think that's just too many "repaired" units, I think many of them are just customer returns AW (After Warner) and/or Toshiba protecting brand image by pushing unsold inventory out the door as refurbs. At any rate, my Ubid XA2 refurb looks and performs like a brand new unit; I couldn't be more pleased.

Normally, a refurb would not bother me in the least because they usually come with a full warranty from the manufacturer, example is my MacBook Pro refurb; full Apple warranty and I got AppleCare. With the 90 day only warranty, it scarred me off.

To any who care to answer:
I just bought an XA2 on Ebay today. What is the "1080p Shutdown" bug I have seen posted a couple of times. I have an A2 and an A20 and both of those work fine (current firmware on each).

I got the 10% by asking for Live help on the site and being a first time customer, the rep gave me 10% off. You just have to ask. Click on the "Help from a live assistant" and if you are a first time customer, they will give you the discount.

That's great to hear, hope mine is like that when it arrives. I hope it doesnt have any scratches or marks on it. I like all my stuff to be top notch.
