But when I fanally came around and bought a pure HD player, the image quality blows it out of the water.

I bought a upconverting Dvd player with a decent surround sound for $200, and I am very pleased with the picture it produces. I would rather have good sound and save $100. And you paid $100 for an HDMI cable? are you retarded? I got mine shipped to my house for $10.

i really hate how Micro$$$oft is releasing different versions of the 360.

it may as well be Windows or Vista. Release the crap version first and then release the legit ones that people actually want and force them to upgrade. Shweet.

Did you do any research at all on hdmi cables? Or did you just believe every word out of the salesman's mouth? Almost every source online agrees that there is almost no difference between the overpriced sh*t and Hdmi cables such as the ones at Monoprice.com

Sucks but this is why you buy a warranty at some place like Best Buy. Say your 360 died. Get a new one thats preferably upgraded = viola.
