I understand they are losing money on some of the items, including most likely the DVD burners.
However, what I don't like is that they say "out of stock" when it really isn't.
If they had said up front we have 20,000 I/O Magic DVD burners (allocated) for BF; I would be fine with it if it was available the next day, as it is now, at full price.
Oh well, I wasn't desperate for that particular (or any) burner
at this point.
I'll see what comes up in tomorrow's sales.
I wouldn't mind waiting for the Toshiba 5372 reviews since it burns DL at 5X.
I would like to get a home DVD recorder next, so I can record TV shows conveniently.
I haven't recorded with my VCR in over 10 years, since I am usually busy enough with other things that if I can't watch a show live, i don't worry about it most of the time - I have used TV tuner cards to record certain TV shows and World Cup soccer etc.
I prefer a good movie on DVD to most TV shows / movies.
