Amazon is offering up this HD DVD player for $400 shipped. The player was originally announced with a $500 price tag, Amazon has since knocked off $100 directly. No rebates, no BS. Also, buy 3 HD DVD movies with the purchase of the HD-A1 player and receive them for free, after mail-in-rebate.
You may want to do a bit of research before a purchase like this, some reviewers like the player and some others completely despise of it.
