For What it is worth. CompUSA is closing all of it's Southern CA stores and having a clearance sale on all merchandise in each store. I picked up a Sony BD burner this past weekend for $500 which I think is the best price anywhere. If you happen to be in Southern Cal, south of Bakersfield see if your local CompUSA's have any of these left in stock. If you are not, maybe you have a friend in that area who can help. These are store sales ONLY not web or mail order.
