Exclamation HD DVD For under $300, not a joke

http://www.macmall.com/macmall/shop/...20Player-Video

Toshiba HD-D1 High Definition DVD Player HD-D1 Your Price: $297.99

Anyone know if this is a closeout of a model or have we just reached the under $300 mark for HD DVD.

Walmart shows the price at $378.00

I got word a while back that the D1 was a discount model made specificlly for stores like Target, Walmart, and Costco (where I saw them). But I don't think it's a closeout model. I think others can verify this for me though.

It is probably the equivalent of the HD-A1. Costco is now selling the HD-D2 (equivalent of HD-A2) for $349 I think.

I think this model was actually available online for as low as $275 recently.

It is the equivalent of the HD-A1, as the D2 is the same as the A2.

http://www.pricegrabber.com/p__Toshi...ack,__27284509 HD-D1 Best price 295.54 shipped
However the A1 has a separate listing on Pricegrabber
http://www.pricegrabber.com/p__Toshi...7247256/qlty=r HD-A1 284.90 Shipped and refurbed Which would lead me to assume it'd have the 2.0 FW installed already

The A1 can be had under $250 if you're lucky enough to find one in a store display. Best Buy gave me their display player for $249, and it was in great shape. The only thing is some displays may not come w/ remote (mine didn't, so I had to order it).

...plus, you may get lucky if they leave the demo movie in your player. When I got home I had a copy of Superman Returns (HD DVD) in mine

Exclamation

I see that Walmart has cut their price to $349.

Online only!Clearance!

Now if they would only cut it to $299 and sell it in their stores, it would be more exciting....
