The Official HD DVD Clearance Sale Thread

MOD NOTE: No eBay links, no Craigslist links, and...really, nothing you can't walk into a store or click over to a website and buy.
It's been a fun ride but all good things must come to an end. So far, the only clearances I've found is for the players at Circuit City. Eventually, stores will have fire sales on HD-DVD's and this is the thread for it. Please post any deals you find for HD-DVD's.

A-3 - $99.99

A-30 - $129.99

I had an A35 and returned it when the whole WB thing went down. I'd love to pick up another, but I doubt I would spend more than $125 - $150 for an extra player like that. It was a great player though, it would be insane to pick up that high-end a player for that much.

Excellent idea for a thread...I agree with Gizmo and Cultshock...show me some software deals!

I wouldn't mind an A35 for $100 though...but I think I'm dreaming.

Yep, I'm eagerly awaiting disc sales. As much as it sucks to be on the wrong side of this, if I can get some great titles for amazing prices, it makes it a tad easier.

Well I just picked up an A3 from Circuit City for about $50 bucks after tax, coupons, and gift cards. I'm not going to open it up right away just in case it goes down in price again.

Waiting for a $50 player and $5 discs. Blu-ray is still a long way off from my price point, so I'm gonna scoop up some clearance HD-DVD stuff if the prices come low enough. I won't build a huge collection, just a nice upconverting player, and a few titles here and there.

I will def cop a A35 if they get low enough. I won't go over $125.
There are still a few discs I would like to pick up, I need me that Heroes Season 1, and a few other discs too.

Come on fire sale, I am ready.

Are we thinking the 5-disc rebates will remain valid on any players purchased during the fire sales?

I hope I get my 5-discs from the HD-A3 I bought in December.

I might buy an A-35 on amazon for $220. That would give me 30-days to pricematch their lowest price, hopefully getting close to $150. I wonder what sort of supply amazon has of the players.

The first disc I'll probably pick up, if the price is right, will definitely be Slither.

I have to wonder, since the actual number of HD DVDs sold is up for debate, that current HD DVD users will have more than enough titles to go around.

C'mon B1G2!

I would suspect Toshiba would face the wrath of class action suits if it reneged on what was a clear promise.

I have been hoping for a fire sale on discs yet when I look around, I find there aren't a lot of movies I want. Wish like hell there was more out there.

What kind of movies are you looking for? Grab some documentary HD DVDs. Galapagos is my next purchase with a few others.

I just went over to highdefdigest and created a "wants" list based on their list of releases for the format. Considering I only have 16 discs, it was a long list.

I'm guessing we won't see any super cheap players until after the rebate deal is dead, which I think is at the end of this month.

Yeah, I may take a gamble on a backup player from amazon on the day the rebate expires. That way I get the movies (though the selection leaves something to be desired), and I'm covered in the event there are further price drops on it during Toshiba's "Get Outta Dodge!" promotion.

I don't know how reliable this site is but most of their HD-DVD's are $12.99. $12.99 is still too high for a fire sale...

I saw signage at Frys tonight that said CLEARANCE MOVIES - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST on small red signs in front of the HD DVDs. No change in prices though.
