I know the $199 at BB is good but the $99 I thought wasa door crasher and won't be available till as I just saw at Future shops site 8PM EST. You can browse the site starting at 6Pm EST.

I just looked and the HD-DVD D3 is in fact a door crasher for $99, so it won't let you buy it till 8PM EST. Good luck!

Well yeah that's right but it was 8 EST tonight which was a few hours ago. In store though is a different matter. Wednesday morning bright and early for some. I already have my A2 and A20 so i don't need anymore. Good luck to all the shoppers tonight and on Wednesday!

Yeah, Boxing Day sales now have a relatively flexible relationship with Boxing Day itself.

I resisted the urge to buy it for $99. The idea of one minute load times turned me off :). I'll wait for Gen2.

Didn't you know they're already on the third generation? \:\) Yeah, it will be nice when the load times are down to nothing, but I haven't been too annoyed. It gives me time to get something to drink.

I get annoyed at the 10-15 sec load times of my present DVD, I think I would be returning it for a 1 minute load time. Hopefully next year at this time things will be a little more settled in the HD war and the players will be faster.

I guess I'm impatient in a different way. I want my high-def movies NOW. Ha ha.

Looks like the 2.7 firmware update cured the skipping with the SD-DVDs and after returning the HD-DVD Bourne Ultimatum disc for another one everything seems to be up and running just fine, great movie BTW. I'm starting to *really* like this player now. \:\)

Where did you guys hear about the one minute load times? Even prior to any updates ours was never near half of that, it is probably in the 15 second time frame.

Hot Dog! Now that's some good news. So glad to hear this, Rick. \:\)

Agree about the load times. Haven't timed it, but it doesn't seem much different from the Oppo or the 2910. It's certainly not different enough that I've noticed or been bothered by it. And, trust me, I'm a very impatient person.
