Default Re: Toshiba HD DVD players still selling @ Circuit City

I still stand my my belief that buying any SD DVD only player is a waste of money right now. Yes, the Oppo's are cheap, and do upconvert, but they still don't play Blu-ray, and you are basically buying old technology.

SACD and DVD-A are pretty much for all intents and purposes dead, and are not coming back.

SD DVD still lives on, but Blu-ray is the future for now, so buying an Oppo is like buying an old pre/pro. you might think your getting a great deal, but in the immediate future, you will need to replace it and then have totally wasted that $.
