Best Buy Replaces Backordered $99 HD DVD Players With Newer Model

In a move so not Best Buy-like we had to double check, Best Buy is upgrading backordered Toshiba HD-A2 HD DVD players to the newer and more expensive HD-A3 model.

Best Buy Matching $99 Toshiba HD DVD Player at Walmart

The bloodbath has begun. Best buy is matching Walmart's $99 sale on Toshiba's low end HD-A2 HD DVD player. They're sold out online but local pickup might work for you.

$198 Wal-Mart Toshiba HD DVD Player Confirmed By Spy Shot

That rumor about a sub-$200 Wal-Mart HD-A2 HD DVD player from Toshiba seems like it's true, judging from this no-reason-to-be-blurry blurry shot of an end-cap at Wal-mart.

CEDIA 2006: 2nd Gen Toshiba HD DVD Players

Today Toshiba also announced the addition of two HD DVD players to their line of HD DVD players. But before I get to that, I need to mention some funny tidbits the PR lady said.
