Did you ever hear of Christmas sales?
There are thousands of items that were on sale in December that have higher prices now.
The Toshiba HD-A3 was never $99. That was the discontinued HD-A2 at the Walmart secret sale of Nov. 7th. BB, CC, etc. lowered the price of the HD-A3 to $199 during that time period to compete with the HD-A2 at $100 cheaper. The price shot back up to $249 for the HD-A3 for most of the season and yes it was too expensive. Ken Graffeo always talked about the $199 price point as being the magic number for consumer adaption.

The secret sale in Dec. for Walmart had the HD-A3 for $199 with 5 free movies in the store and 5 free mail in just as BB and CC had done in Nov. The HD-A3 was never below $199 at any retail store. The HD-A3 at $99 before xmas is fantasy FUD from the blu camp.
