Re: HD DVD Players Sold Out Nationwide This Weekend - Blu-ray In Trouble?
I have to agree with Lotus on this one.
Having owned/owning five Blu-ray players and on my second HD DVD player (Toshiba HD XA2) I can say NONE of the BLu-ray players I have do as good a job upscaling SD DVD's as the XA2.
As for the PS3, well, it's a great video game, and a Blu-ray player, but not a good one, and definitely not a great one (Yes, I own one of these too.) In fact, I would put my XA2 against any other up-converting player and be surprised if it didn't at least match or beat them. It really is that good, far superior to the PS3, ANY Samsung BDP player, and the Sony BDP-S1.
