My understanding that the BX100 is out of stock due to a parts shortage from the vendors. I don't have a Best Buy that carries the box in stock any where within 50 miles of me. And although, the Best Buy web site indicates "available", shortly after placing the order they came back with "backordered". I contacted them as well, and they also indicated that there is no understanding of when these will be in-stock.
I am not clear how a business is run that doesn't either stock it's main line product or in the case of high demand can't indicate within some range when the the product will be available.
I waited to determine if either the AppleTV or the VUDU was the better choice. And I would prefer to buy the VUDU if it's available. I am not looking to buy the more expensive XL box. Especially, since I only intend to rent and no bought material can be off-loaded.
Any response to assist in locating the BX100 as "New" product is greatly appreciated.
