Default Venturer SHD7000 for $62.97!!!

At lunch time today I was at my local Walmart and they had 1 Venturer SHD7000 HD DVD player come in (it was a return)....it inlcuded Firewall and the Perfect storm....because it had been opened and was thier last one they took 10% off the $69.97 price tag.....so I paid $62.97 for the machine plus taxes.

Now that gives me 3 back up machines.=p~

BTW, didn't I read that the Venturer is IDENTICAL inside to the A3? I don't mean similar, I mean identical?

Default good move

yes, I have 'em both and there's only a few cosmetic differences.

Should be a nice buy!

Funny thing is I had my eye on these for months....but just after christmas all the stock got shipped back to the wharehouse.......then I read about the sales....but my local Walmart never had any stock....until the one unit was returned today.

I picked it up for $30.00 less than an A3 with two HD DVDs that I didn't have....so I am pretty happy.

There's about 20+ units at a local walmart here. Nobody's touching them, I'd hit another one up if it goes below $40. They look super cheap on the outside compared to an A2/A3.

HUm, I wonder if the drives are identical to the A3 series. Like the a35.
It would be cool if someday godforbid my a35 has so trouble,, just pop in another HD drive from any a3 series and get back in business. then again I don't know if the a3, A30, and A35 are the same drive. But it be cool if it were, so i wouldn't lose the a35's features.
anyone know for sure?

This is a thread comparing the Venturer with the A3....you can see on the indside it is the same machine...and very similar on the outside.....however, without a doubt the Toshiba is the more attractive looking unit......but for a backup or machine in the basement the Venturer is a great deal.

You know what would be a great deal is if you can find an A3 at best buy Canada instore ( none in my city) they're giving the $50 Gift Card right now for Purchases between March 21st - may 2nd, and are listing it at $89.99 with the 3 movies so only $39.99 after the Card
