    I bought one with that 10% off coupon deal that Best Buy had the past few days. Arrives next Friday. Total came to $572.39 with MI 6% sales tax. Unsure if I should get the extended contract. I have 30 days to decide. It seemed kind of high-$100.00 for 4 years. But with all the trouble that they have had in the past I'm thinking it might be worth it. Basic warranty is only 1 year parts/90 days labor.

    Wow, you're right. These things really have dropped in price. It's down to $529 in some places.

    If I could hook this deck to my cable box to grab HD recordings, I would now be a DVHS supporter (via my purchase).

    But, alas, I can't. And, even at $529, the D-Theater title selection is "lacking."

    I think they'll be long gone before another price drop.

    Most of you who have posted are probably aware of the very common problems with this player - most of them stop playing after awhile. For those not familiar with the problems I would suggest visiting the AVS forum. There is a group of extremely disatisfied purchasers of this unit who post there. Based on this group, I believe there is a significant problem with the unit. JVC is working with some of them to resolve their problems, but Buyer beware.

    If it's a lemon, it's not worth it at any price IMHO.

    JVC has come up with a "fix" for the unit. Time will tell if it will work. I would suggest buying an extended warranty. Any update on a "deal" through the HTF deals page or group purchase.

    Thanks

    Looks like Onecall finally updated their price...$497 + shipping. It would be nice if they gave an extended warranty and/or free shipping for HTF members [​IMG]

    Ron

    Or, 50% off extended warranty + free shipping...or...
