I prefer the HD XA2, better scaling to my eyes and a cooler look to the player.

Toshiba HD-A20 HD DVD Player Reviews - AVREV
Well, Andrew you know my stance on this war. However, after reading this review, I must admit, you have me thinking. I get HD content, can play my SACDS/DVD - AS, and it plays standard DVDS well. That`s a universal player in my book.

Well, as I slowly re - build my system, we`ll see what happens. But even with this, Denon has a new Blu-Ray player coming out. Target and someone else is carrying Blu-Ray units. And we already have BlockBuster. It still looks like there is much more support for Blu - Ray.

But I like this Toshiba unit you just reviewed. You can send one right over thank you!!

Alright, I`ll look into that, even though its the older player. I guess I will not be losing anything, right? Anyway, as the man with all the players, if anyone should know, you should!!

And the pricing seems to be better.

Well, I checked into it, seems the XA2 is still going for close to $600, I found it for ~$550 but that is my best. The A20 is a whole lot cheaper and does the same surround formats....
