>Most of the time being cheap pays off but not this time.
For years I’ve been wanting a blu ray disk player but the price has been waaay too high.
I finally decided that I wanted the Sony BDP-S350 and waited for the price to come down.
Wait…Wait….Wait…Wait…. So much waiting and not much price drop. My buy price was $150.00
While searching I found one for $198 and decided since I didn’t get myself a Christmas Present this year I would splurge a little. I ordered it and waited. It arrived today.
I knew it was used when I bought it but was OK with that. Turned out it was an older model. The BDP-S300. I looked at my order receipt and it said BDP-S300. I was so interested in the price that I didn’t notice that I was buying an older model at a relatively high price. The going price is like $165. I paid $30 MORE than it was worth. Maybe it will be OK. If it plays the movies I will settle with it. I’m currently updating the firmware so it will be as current as possible. Hope that works out and I don’t brick it.
Moral of the story. PAY ATTENTION to what you are doing. Especially if you are trying to be careful about it in the first place. It was totaly my mistake and I have no one to blame but myself. All I can say is, “DAMN!”
