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

You can pick up HD DVD discs for $9.98.

I returned my HD DVD when Warner pulled the plug! Who wants a bunch of useless discs when the player goes bust!! Even at $10 a pop.

I agree that blu ray is still to high but same goes with new DVD releases, remember VHS at $90!!!

LG is supporting HD DVD. The last I heard, they were still possibly coming out with a BH300 which is a dual player like the BH200 and BH100. I would still rather have HDM than not. Besides, if your worried about your HD DVD player dying, you can always just only get the combo format discs that have both HD DVD and regular DVD versions .

I understand Wes's point, but I'm with you rlpiii, I have a Toshiba HD-A20 and the LG drive in my HTPC (as I mentioned before), and when I decide to buy a Blu-Ray player I will gunning for a combo unit to hedge my bets for continued playback of my HD-DVD library.

Wes, the way I figured it, after a couple years of use the HD-A20 will have paid for it's self through playback of the 2 dozen or so HD titles I have (and at $9.99, more on the way), but also the hundreds of SD DVD's that I have and the Toshiba up-converts beautifully.

What I mean is what do you do with your collection of HD-DVD movies once the player goes bust and no one sells HD-DVD players anymore! Three years from now I doubt that LG will be sellng combo players!! Do you then use your HD DVD movies as coasters?

Unless you got a "Lemon," if you take care of your stuff, I don't see why your player would not be working for at least 3 more years. Also, if for some reason, your player breaks, I am sure there will be some electronics shop out there that will be able to repair it.
