Default Attn: HD DVD Owners. Are you a newbie?

With all the sales this pass week "Best Buy, Wally World and price matching". Was this purchase of your new Toshiba HD DVD Player your first HD DVD Player?

So this weeks poll.

Was this purchase your first HD DVD player?

Or did you have one for a while and just picked up one because it was on sale?

Not my first hd dvd player, but my first stand alone. I had the xbox 360 add on, but sold it to by an A3. Although my current setup doesn't allow me to enjoy lossless audio at the moment, at least now I have the option in the future.

I've had my HD-A1 since August of last year. Then my husband and I bought 2 HD-A2's at Wal Mart last Friday. So tonight my A1 is going to be sold on Ebay. As you can tell in my sig I've got quite a few on both formats so I'm definitely not a newbie!!
Mischa.

Bought a KDF50E3000 Friday and an A3 Saturday (didn't even consider braving the WalMart crowds).

i joined up just a couple of weeks ago with Best Buy's 9 movie deal (well, 10 now). i chose the 360 add-on, Heroes, Batman Begins, The Polar Express, V for Vendetta, and am waiting for my MIR titles.

we've had two HD sets in the house for a couple years now, but i've been holding back on HDM until now due to the prices, for players and movies.

my wife's been bugging me for the last few months to finally buy a player, so i was really just waiting for the "right deal" to come along -- it did.

i don't know that i'll be choosing BD anytime soon (if ever), as the players are prohibitively priced to me (including the PS3).

i'm really cheap when it comes to movies (i generally don't pay more than 2-3 dollars for DVDs), so the prices for HD DVD titles are a bit hard to swallow, but i understand the reasoning behind it, and i'm finally willing to pay a premium now and then for the higher quality content.

I bought the addon when they gave me King Kong, Heroes, 2 others in store and the 5 mail-ins at Best Buy.

I'm somewhat of a noobie. I got excited when they first dropped the price of the 360 addon to 179 and threw in the 5 dvd's. Then I realized my Xbox was sent in for repair for more time than it spent at my house. So I sold it after about a month.

Just recently got back into HD again with the $199 sale of A3 at Best Buy with 10 free movies. I'd still consider myself a n00bie though
