Unless the build quality is superior, I'm not paying thousands for it either. Been there, done that. At least my Sony changers and Escient movie/music manager have stood the test of time (unlike my HD-DVD player[s]). And how 'bout a little help from our friends in Hollywood. I love reading reviews about how great a blu-ray picture looks and how spectacular the audio sounds on the disc when the fact of the matter is: It was a crappy movie! Or worse yet: A movie you've owned on DVD for a hundred years gets re-released on blu-ray for thirty bucks. Well blow me down! Can't wait to get to the store! Well I've had it. I'm looking at the future of media servers as a platform for the eventual time when I can download high def content for a fee right to a hard drive. Well, I have to run. I think I hear the mailman. He might have my sorry about the HD-DVD player fifty dollar check from best buy that I can use to buy some preparationH to use after I pull this Toshiba A30 and the HD-DVD add-on for the XBOX360 out of my A$$. I tried to give them away to a friend who replied in kind, " No thanks."
You give it to me and I'll pay for shipping...I'll take your A30 no problem.
