I love it!

Author's Rating: Rating: 5/5 stars

Pros: Great audio and video. Great special features.

Cons: Runs a little warm. Hard time downloading/creating firmware update.

Bottom Line:
I recommend a purchase. It is cheaper than Blu-Ray with the same quality picture, but with better special features standard on all discs. Read More at

Are all those free movies worth buying this HD DVD player?

Author's Rating: Rating: 3/5 stars

Pros: Stunning HD picture and sound.

Cons: Long load times, won't accept wireless internet connections; Bluray will win war.

Bottom Line:
Bluray has way more studio support, but if you just can't wait, it's a good machine. Read More at

You get what you pay for

Author's Rating: Rating: 3/5 stars

Pros: Lower price than Blu-Ray

Cons: Lackluster 1080P playback, Absolutely needs firmware update from to 1.3 out of the box

Bottom Line:
For the price I think it's a good buy. If you watch a lot of movies filmed at 24frames the player is excellent in 1080P/24hz. Read More at
