HD DVD on the cheap

If you’ve recently purchased an HDTV and still don’t have a hi-def movie player, you’re really missing out. Lucky for you, Wal-Mart is supposedly selling the Toshiba A2 HD DVD player for a stunning $198, making it the cheapest standalone hi-def player on the market. The A2 is no throwaway chinese knock-off player either. This is the real deal as far as HD DVD goes.

Wal-Mart stores are supposed to only get 18 units per store come November 3rd, so if you want one, make sure you check your local Wal-Mart frequently until these Toshibas pop up.
