My point is spend a little more even if you have to save for an extra month or two and get a player that might just have new software available longer than a few months or a year. I can not honestly direct anyone I know to buy one of these players knowing that the format's time is near the end. I have both a tosh hd dvd player and a panny bd player, I hate to see hd dvd die out but one format would be better for all, imo.
And the $149 player is only 1080i so you should compare the $199 HD-A30, with 1080p output & that makes it a $30 difference with the 1200.
