    The Pioneer 420 is finally back in stock at Costco.com at a GREAT price of $249.99 plus shipping. I've owned this model since July, and am quite happy with it. (I paid $399 plus shipping back then on sale!)

    From the link, it does not look like it has a firewire port. Can you confirm? Thanks.

    Wow, what a great deal!

    I ordered one instantly upon reading your post.

    Thanks, Elizabeth.

    Jon,

    It does not have a firewire port. This 420 model is the "pared down" version of the 520, which does. Other than that, though, they're virtually identical and share the same manual.

    Rich,

    I'm so glad you got one -- I think you'll be very happy with it! (Come visit the Personal Video and DVD Recorders forum if you'd like to share your thoughts on it!) [​IMG]

    Has anyone who ordered one of these have theres ship yet? I ordered mine on Thursday (20th) afternoon and it is still processing. I saw on AVS some people have had theirs shipped and others are stuck in processing like me. Also Costco has taken this item down from the site over the weekend.

    UPS tried to deliver mine today. Unfortunately, I wasn't home. I'll make sure to be home tomorrow. I ordered on Wed. night.

    Mine shipped last night. At least now I know I have one on the way. I was worried they might have taken too many orders. I am reallly excited for this.
