I have had my A2 for all of two days and I have already overpaid $27. I'm going to order this(Crutchfield is a very reputable dealer) anyway and I'll consider returning my first one to Amazon. Thanks for the heads-up!

Is $27 really worth that hassle? Remember that you're going to have to pay for postage to return it to Amazon if it's not defective.

Oh, it'll be defective if I return it to Amazon. I'll probalby keep the one that I already have and give the Crutchfield one as a gift.

That is such a great point. I try not to buy anything high-end on-line even if I have to pay quite a bit more for it, just because shipping back defective product + waiting for it to return is such a royal pain IMO. It KILLED me last year to buy my projector, screen, and 20g PS3 thru the Net cause I couldn't find them local... first time I've ever done that, been lucky so far (knock on wood).

I would typically agree. However, Amazon is great regarding returns(that's why I bought the A2 from them in the first place). They will pay for return shipping if the product is defective and they are very prompt about issuing refunds. I received a defective 27" Sony Wega from them about 7 years ago and the return process couldn't have gone any smoother.

PA145 will give you free shipping. It's supposed to be for AMEX cards, but I think that it will work with any credit card.

Excellent price on this. Plus the 5 free discs makes this very tempting. Although I already have the 360 add on and I'm really holding out for one that has 5.1 outputs for an upgrade.

Great deal indeed. I was just coming to post the deal here but I see Kobra beat me by an hour. At this price I'm thinking about buying a couple for gifts...My amazon order for $237.88 just got delivered two days ago.

Well its been a great weekend. I bought 65Hm167 for $1499 at nfm.com on Saturday to be delivered 06/23. Now I can move 34xbr800 and Hd-a1 into the bedrooom with this deal. Only sad thing is that Crutchfield says unknown shipment date instead of JackBurton's 06/26 date.

Seriously, what is up with Crutchfield. I would have expected $799 MSRP with discounted $499 everyday price.

Off to decide on my 5 free movies.

Anyone that is thinking about jumping into the HD-DVD pool, this is a no-brainer. Crutchfield is very reliable and they offer a risk free 30 day in-home audition. If you're not satisfied with your purchase, they will give you a full refund if you return it within 30 days. They will even pay for return shipping(even if it's not defective) and there are no restocking fees.

Hmmm. I am seriously considering adding this player to our family room setup, as we're in the market for an upconverting DVD player for the 720p plasma there anyway. Sucks that I get charged sales tax, but $220.98 is still a good deal, I take it?

I tested both my Visa and MC and the code works.

Also, If you use a Citi Card that uses the Citi Bonus Cash Center, use that link instead of directly to Crutchfield.com. This is worth 3% Cash Back (~$6.00).

FW also offers 3% cash back.

I applaud your good attitude. Most people would have gone with instead of .

I paid $450 for the HD-A2 back in December. Even though I could have saved a few hundred dollars by waiting, I do not regret the purchase one bit. Enjoying upconverted DVDs and HD DVDs for an extra six months has been worth it to me.

Thanks, Lord Rick. I totally forgot about that. It isn't just for AMEX cards according to a coupon site I found online. Fortunately, Crutchfield's has about the greatest customer service on Earth, and it was a breeze getting the coupon applied retroactively.

Thanks again.

If your MyPoints user, they give 2 points per dollar spent.

You're welcome!

Hey, I was just quoting Sweet Baby James' post from earlier in the thread. I wanted to make sure you didn't miss out on that info. Glad you got in on the deal!

Thanks for the shout out, Lord Rick! I just got it for $192.97 shipped. I ordered it for $199.99 and got a two pack of AA batteries for $1.99 to push the order over $200. I then used a referral code from some kind soul at FW(actually, he'll get a $20 credit off of his next order for the referral) which takes $20 off of the total. Unfortunately, it wouldn't let me combine it with the free shipping(I tried), so I have to pay the $10.99 shipping fee. I know that prices are dropping, but for under $200 for a quality player with 5 HD-DVDs to boot is pretty damn sweet.
