Circuit City Clearing Out HD DVD Players For Cheap, For Ever

Illustration for article titled Circuit City Clearing Out HD DVD Players For Cheap, For Ever

A Circuit City employee writes on the High-Def Digest forum that Big Red is taking Toshiba's already deep HD DVD price cuts a step bloodier: They've tagged the cheap HD-A3 and higher-end HD-A30 as clearance items, moving them out the door for $100 and $150, respectively. Placing HD DVD on clearance effectively means Circuit City is quitting the format, at least on the hardware side. Someone ring the bell, please. [High-Def Digest via Max Console] UPDATE: It looks like this was probably a pricing error. [High-Def Digest]

Look, I love my HD discs. What I can't imagine loving is my HD media streamed or downloaded in it's compressed format, blown-up on my Samsung 46" 71 series LCD. Until there are amazing compression and codec break-throughs, are you really getting "Full HD" with digital downloads? Probably not. So, until then, I will take what I can get.
