Default Toshiba A2 vs. D2?

Can anyone give me info on the difference between the A2 and the D2? Can't find much on the D2. I want to buy a player this week and am deciding between the A2 at Best Buy with the Matrix two free hd dvd deal or going to Costco for the $250 D2.

Thanks.

The "D" version players should be exactly the same as the main line of "A" players. The only difference is that the D1, D2, etc. are versions especially made for Walmart and some wholesale warehouses. The only technical difference should be the model numbers. Other than that it should have the same outputs and firmware as the A2. So no need to worry about the hardware. All you need to do is decide which deal you want to take. Personally If I were you I'd go with CC's deal instead. They're offering 7 free HD DVDs with the purchase of an A2 (reg. price at 299) and the Matrix box set (either). Don't pass it up if you're in the market for a new player!

Apparantly the D2 also includes a HDMI cable in the box, but the A2 does not (not sure of the length)

If money is not an issue, get the HD-A20 it's 1080p $499.00. I paid the same price for the HD-A2 (I was so stupid because I could not wait, I am very impatient sometimes). If you do not care about the 1080p version get the HD-A2 is a very good player, stay away from Blu-ray..................
