Damn... If I wouldnt have just replaced my Ipod with a 30gb one and bought a new cell phone at full price since my fucking dog ate my brand new one, I would be all over this. Hell, I still might. Now if I can just get the dog to chew up my A1.

You snooze, you lose. Back up to $299.

Congrats to those who got in on the great deal.

I think by fall of this year, these prices will be the norm for these players if not sooner.

Life. It rained heavily here today so I surfed DVDTalk and watched movies on my A1. I was purchased the A2 only 45 minutes after the OP and I have an undtermined ship date instead of 06/26. Atleast I got in on it. Hope they don not cancel any orders for a pricing error.

Not a price mistake. I remember the price saying ($100 Crutchfield instant rebate).

There might have been an error elsewhere. For example, the price said $499 MSRP, $200 savings, $100 crutchfield rebate. Maybe the $200 savings was supposed to include the instant rebate?

Damnit! I had finally reached my tipping point. I was "all in" after reading the first post in this thread until I read this post. I always miss the deals too .

Now back to my previous spot on the fence...

Someone at AVS called Customer Support to find out details on their order.

Apparently is *WAS* a price mistake, but they are going to honor all units sold at the incorrect price. Apparently the CS stated that they sold over 600 players before catching on to the mistake.

Probably supposed to BE $299 AFTER the included $100 instant rebate.

Instead the staffer just entered the price as $299, and the already entered $100 rebate took over and made it $199.99.

DANG I wish I caught this.

now I'm wondering...If I were to get this would it be better for HD DVD movies than the 360 ADD ON?

It will likely look, and more than likely sound better than the 360 Add-On.
What it most certainly do though, is cause less overall wear and tear on your 360.
Since I've started watching a lot of HD-DVDs lately, I decided to take the plunge on the A2.
I've already had to send my 360 back for repair once, and would like to postpone that happening again as long as possible.

I managed to get it for $219 after tax and 3-day shipping... I have the Add-On but like clappj mentioned... I try to avoid doing as much damage as possible to my 360. The only issue with my order is that it says its out of stock... so as long as I get it before the 5 Free HD-DVD's offer expires Im happy.

As of today, current status is "being prepared for shipping".

So I guess they're in and ready to go for those that were on backorder.

Emailed Customer Service about the status of my order... They said that they are back in stock and my order is being prepared to ship... So it should be here soon. I saw an Ad on Toshiba's website saying for "a limited time" there will be 3 HD-DVDs in specially marked boxes on ALL of their players (Fast & The Furious 3, and 2 others)... that would be pretty sweet if the player they send me was one of these specially marked ones.. 8 free HD-DVDs wouldnt be too bad!

Don't count on it. I just received my Crutchfield order and the manufacture date is October 2006. Since they were awaiting stock, I really thought that I would have gotten one fresh off of the assembly line.
