It's 4000 dpi. It has...

Amazon Single Disc DB Link

Amazon also has the original movie available as a single BD for $19.95. It doesn't show up with a normal search though --I had to search using the UPC symbol.

We have BestBuy (that's a laugh), Target, Hastings, and Walmart locally. I don't even bother with the first three for new releases. They NEVER have a reasonable price on a new BD release. I check...

I used to hit it every week. As their used prices got more and more ridiculous I went less and less. And it's not just the prices: they're also taking longer to put new releases out for sale used....

A previously viewed DVD at Hastings used to top out at about $10 and they had frequent B2G1 sales. Lately, they've got the PV DVDs topping out at $15 and they haven't had a sale for a long time. ...

Suck? I've been picking up new releases on BR like Across the Universe and Gone Baby Gone for $25. Everywhere else around here --Target, Best Buy, Hastings-- they're $30 or more.
