Picked up the Toshiba HD-A3 DV-DVD player for $178 including 7 free titles from Amazon. And of course a week later Warners Bros announces dropping support for HD-DVD. Still the Toshiba is a good HD-DVD player and also a pretty good DVD player with reasonable upscaling.
I guess more annoyingly, Toshiba announced significant price cuts on their entire line which means the A3 can be purchaed for $128 now. And since I purchased mine more than 30 days before I can't take advantage of the Amazon price guarantee :-(
