Some coupons on FW can push it below $300, but the unit is refurbished and isn't eligible for the 5 free HD-DVDs from Toshiba. Several places have the D1 below $300 brand new and therefore eligible for the free movies.

Everywhere. Rather, everywhere except your standard B&M (i.e. BB, CC, etc...). Just a *little* research can save you a lot of money. Here's just one example.........

P.S. I Highly recommend Value Electronics. Check them out.

It's at Value Electronics. Some guy named Robert is selling them.

Don't exactly know why the people above are not mentioning WHERE you can get that deal.

1. The A2 is $364.99 shipped from Amazon.com.

2. Value Electronics: http://www..com/Toshiba_HD-A2_and_HD-XA2.htm Don't be fooled by the "tacky" appearance of the web site. Great company to do business with, and Robert is a major proponent of HD-DVD. He's sold a boatload of both 1st and 2nd generation HD-DVD players. The $399 price for the A2 includes 2 HD-DVDs from their stock plus an HDMI cable and shipping (plus the 5 HD-DVDs from Toshiba). I would not hesitate to buy from them.

Yup. See my post above. Robert at VE is top notch and actually does a lot of HD-DVD conventions/panels and is very influential in the HD-DVD realm. His business and customer service is second to none. He ships double boxed, answers all customer service inquiries in a timely manner and actually cares about the products he sells.

Oh, and dharding, you cannot link directly to his site. All those interested, just replace the "..." with "value electronics". Also, Robert offers an extended warranty in lieu of the 2 HD-DVD's if you want that instead.

The Toshiba A1 has analog outputs for the newer fancy sound codecs. Might be worthwhile to some. Worth mentioning, the A2 isn't necessarily better for everyone.

Yes, this is a must for me since my receiver does not have hdmi. Is the A1 the only Toshiba player with analog outputs?

The XA1 has them as well. I use the 5.1 connection for the same reason.
