i’m pretty geeky. there aren’t many people who care about the ‘format wars’ of hd dvd versus blu-ray. but things have gotten hot lately as studios jump ship and hd dvd fights back.
toshiba announced a price drop on their base player, the hd a3, and you can scoop one up on amazon right now for about 130 plus you get seven hd dvds. i bought one this week. for as long as netflix ships hd dvd, i’ll go with it. i’ll replace it if blu ray wins, but 130 is a pretty cheap bet.
