Toshiba HD-A2 available for $197.99 right now

Yesterday, DailyTech reported that Wal-Mart was preparing to drop the price on Toshiba's 1080i HD-A2 HD DVD player. Images were taken of a Wal-Mart aisle end cap with the HD-A2 listed for $198. According to user who posted the picture online, the new price is to take effect on November 3.

Well, it appears that Circuit City has beaten Wal-Mart to the punch and is currently offering the HD-A2 for $197.99. The player is available online with free shipping or if having the player in your hands right now is a priority, you can choose in-store pickup.

Toshiba's HD-A2 was originally released in December 2006 with a $499 price tag. Over the past year, the price for the player has steadily dropped to $399 in April and to $299 in July. Toshiba's long-running five free HD DVD movie offer [PDF] has also been available to give customers more bang for the buck.

The Toshiba HD-A2 supports a 1080i resolution and comes equipped with an HDMI 1.2 port. The player features a SHARC DSP and supports Dolby Digital Plus 5.1, Dolby TrueHD 5.1, DTS 5.1 and DTS HD audio formats.

$197.99 appears to the be the new retail price for the Toshiba HD-A2. Amazon.com is also showing the lower price tag. Other retailers are likely to follow.

RE: Printable Coupon $40.00 off $200.00

so i tried this just now. the saying that if something is too good to be true, it probably is applies here.

the coupon is in store only. circuit city will not match their own price for the hd-dvd player. the excuse i got was that it was too much of a price difference for them to price match. they want you to purchase it from the website and pick it up in the store.

the problem with this is that the website will not accept the 40.00 off coupon because its in store only. so they basically told me it was either the coupon or buy the player from the website and void the 40.00 off. and this was from the store manager.

so i told him to go f**k himself.
