Is $300 supposed to be cheap?

No, I think it's an average price. Though, they were about $600 when they were new... so it is a significant drop from that.

Same thing when the first cd and dvd burners came out. Eventually theyll cost $30 and be 5 times faster. Sucks but thats technology for ya.

it was more like $800 or maybe it was just that Pioneer (which tend to be really pricey)
