If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

still may let it lapse even with all the extras . my action pack renewal will be 329 and a technet pro would be 350 ( renewals 250) hoping to find a discount code for technet.

I had the AP subscription when you actually received the physical media. One of the certs I have qualified me to get it and it's like TechNet, for use in a testing environment only. You get monthly copies of Betas but no real MSDN correlation.

The one thing I really like was having ALL of the Microsoft updates on one DVD. For me, I'd go with TechNet Pro.

We used to have the CD/DVD subscription service at work; man, that was a lot of discs to store & dispose of. Frankly, it was kind of a nightmare keeping the updated. Download is the only way to go :)
