Costco: Toshiba HD-D3 $129.99
During a trip to our local Costco warehouse (Seattle area), we spotted the Toshiba HD-D3 (same as the HD-A3) on sale for the bottom basement price of $129.99. While Blu-ray seems to have all the momentum, it’s kinda hard to sell consumers a $379.99 Samsung BD-P1400 thats sitting next to the $129.99 HD-D3.
I just hope the Blu-ray side doesn’t cease their pre-XMAS price drops, now that they feel HD DVD is down for the count. Even though most have despised the format war, I have always thought that both sides have pushed each other to slash prices at an unprecedented rate. This I believe benefited early adopters, at the expense of confusing J6P.
