Gearing up for HDTV
Julie and I went to Best Buy looking for a progressive scan DVD player. Not only did they have the very model I was interested in, but they had one in an open box for only $189. So I snatched it up, brought it home and tested it out.

We are very pleased. Everything worked great, except I couldn't really test progressive scan playback, being that I don't have my HDTV yet.

Here's what we got:
Panasonic DVD-RP56



An ugly machine, I'll admit, but it really gets the job done. It's an excellent value.

Right on. I always imagine that the open-box electronics scenario is the result of some poor guy bringing home new gear and then his wife throws a fit and makes him return it.

That poor guy.

Best Buy lets you return it within 30 days if it's broken or has missing parts, so it's a win-win scenario for the bargain hunter.
