Amazing upscaling DVD players (but I still would go HD)
I have a Sony HDMI DVD player in my bedroom and it is KILLER even without say a DVDO VP50 or anything fancy (a killer unit) like that.
Also the DVD player on my Macbook Pro is stunningly good on that high res screen. When on a plane - you can't beat it (for now).
But with that said - at $300 its worth getting a Toshiba a20 for $300-ish. $200 extra isn't going to kill any of my readers and it supports all things HD. This needs to be a MASS MARKET thing and for BOTH formats. I don't see either going away.
