Don't you know that early adopters always get shafted?
Raise your hand if you bought a DVD player in 1997/98 and paid more than $300-400 for it. Raise your hand if you bought any recordable DVD player prior to 2002, and paid over $1000 for it.
Okay, I'm done here.
Agreed, but we're talking DVDs here, not new cutting edge hardware technology. Usually, when you pre-order a DVD from a site (which is what a lot of people did) you get a cheaper price. The infrastructure to create and package DVD already exists and has been streamlined. You also don't expect the horrendous level of customer service that AU is shoveling out.
