Sorry man. I really figured because it was on aol that it was in all their stores. I do think that hd dvd players will continue to drop their prices to gain popularity through player sales because many feel blu ray has the edge right now. However, this format war could go on for years.

Store may have sold out

If you go to this linked page I use for checking out tech deals and click the link in the middle of the page for Black Friday deals it references today's Wall-Mart deal on the HD-DVD player.

If they sold out, they pulled all the collateral fast. And there was no mistaking the look on the guys faces. They were genuinely perplexed. Maybe it was only for certain Wal-Marts?

Could be - I guess it is not bait & switch if you do not formally advertise (in which case you at least have to have a "limited quantity" of 1)

This link to the Wal-Mart website says the DVD was in store for $100 but not available at all stores

Keep your spending powder dry - IMO there are going to be some killer deals in teh next 6 weeks as retailers panic about a slow Christmas season.

If I can get an HD DVD for less than $180 I'm there.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know anything about the upconvert DVD players? They were relatively cheap, and the claim is that they upconvert SD DVD to full 1080. I was skeptical and occupied hunting for the elusive 99 dollar HD DVD player.

Someone I just talked to on SF just got home with the $350 acer laptop. He said the local Walmart didn't have any but the second one did. He's now going back out to get a 2nd one. I remember going to the Walmart "Black Friday" sale a year or two ago. It started at 5 am. This Walmart is Huuuuggggeeee & yet it was so jam packed that I could only get around the store by leavinge my cart in one spot, finding things & then going back & putting them in my cart. Absolutely insane. But the point is, even getting there at 5 am, some stuff was sold out within 30 minutes. But it also sounds like some stores might not have participated. That surprises me.

It's all good. I've dropped so much cash on my whole setup in the last few weeks, not to mention all the stupid 360 games I've been buying, that a little austerity was in order.

I think all of the hi def dvd players may upconvert. That toshiba model does. that was the first thing i did when i got it was put some of our standard def dvd's in it. It looks a good bit better upconverted but still doesn't compare to what the hi def dvd's look like. Our screen is pretty big so standard def looks worse. If you had a 40" to -50" high def tv, I imagine the upconvert would look alot better than it does on ours, but again, it still looks alot better and is worth it IMO if you don't want to spring for hi - def player yet.

I really figured there was little chance of me paying extra for HD DVDs and an HD DVD player and the local rental places still carry a few VHS(LOL) but no HD DVDs. So , I figure for now(prices get lower everyday) there was no hurry to get a real HD DVD.
We have netflix so for like $15 - $20 bucks/mo. you can get a ton of movies. They have HD movies and I think you can have 3 at a time. The shipping is free, so when we ship a movie back, they automatically ship the next one & we have it two days later. So theoreticall you could watch 30+ movies a month for $20. You go online into your netflix account and create a queue of movies that you want in order of importance. They auto ship the highest one in your queue that is in stock when they receive the one you mailed back. Also, you can see how other member have rated the movies & click to see a list of best movies like others you've watched and liked.
