I still find it funny that the so called 'cheap chinese players' are more expensive than Toshiba's own models. And they wonder why their format failed.

Cool, I guess I just needed a def of clearance. I wasn't sure if it meant big sale or getting rid of them.

HD-DVD players on clearance seems to be happening very fast in the USA. Let's hope that this is the end of this unsophisticated format. Is Toshiba's mind being made up for them???

The trend will continue. Look for a big bomb to be dropped soon in retail.

obviously just a glitch with the system. pricing errors happen all the time. everybody but the blubots knows wal mart sells more hd dvd then blu-ray could possibly imagine, nielsens get really skewed cause wal mart isnt included. the real ratio is more like 55:45, tops its 60:40.

I just checked the target.com site and they have the Venturer listed as on sale at $20 off for a price of $229. I bet those aren't moving. I wonder how low they and Wal-Mart will need to go in order to get rid of these (unless they sell them to a reseller).

I know I wouldn't buy them. Never heard of that brand before, and more expensive than the Toshis? LOL Talk about undermining your own business partner
