There's something strange going on with this player and the availablility. It has been out of stock as several places and now some retailers are saying it's discontinued. About half say it is discontinued and half say they are just back ordered. What's going on with this thing? Is there really a replacement so soon?
I would love to get an RP93??? Anyone going to CES please check out panasonic and their DVD plans for this player.
Guys, I just purchased the RP82 today at Ultimate Electronics for $189.00. My trusted salesman said the unit is discontinued and will be replaced. He has been reliable in the past and I have never had a reason to doubt him. This was the only B&M place in Tulsa that I found that even carried the item much less had it in stock.
That's a screamin' deal Dan! I paid $229 at Crutchfield, only because I literally could not find it anywhere else. All online retailers I checked (a dozen or so) were out of stock and I have no local B&Ms that carry it. Now it seems I lucked out and got one of the last few if it is ineed being discontinued.
