Sony BWU-100A at Best Buy - $749.99

Postby aviationwiz on Thu Aug 24, 2006 12:11 am

I was at Best Buy today because I needed to pick up a new router (my old one decided to kick the bucket), and, while I was there, I noticed they had the Sony BWU-100A Blu-Ray drive for $750.

yeah so lets say i was the first one to know that best buy carries it, only because aviationwiz jumped on his phone faster then a school girl waiting for a call from a boy

so far our store doesn't have this in stock, but now that aviationwiz showed me the sku (7942934) i can check tomorrow when i get to work

tomorrow is also a truck day, so hopefully we will have em

my guess... no employee discount at all

The price of these things coming down fast. $1000 for a Pioneer or Panasonic drive in May. $750 for a Sony in August and $650 for a Lite-On in October. I bet they'll be down to $500 by the holidays.
