A High Quality Upconverter/HD Player for the price of Standard DVD Players
Pros: Plays HD DVDs in 720p/1080i, while Upconverting Standard DVDs to 1080i.
Cons: No longer a viable choice for new HD movies.
A definite buy for about $60, even if only used as an upconverter, you will save money in the long run over Blue Ray DVDs. Read More at Epinions.com

Pros: Picture quality, sound quality, user interface, sleek design, online capabilities.
Cons: Initial powering on of the system is slow (about 20 seconds).
Great value and amazing quality. I am still very confident that HD-DVD with it's plethora of online advatages, identical quality and cheaper prices will win over Blue-ray. Read More at Epinions.com

I LOVE HD!
Pros: Cheap, amazing picture quality & sound quality, easy setup, easy to operate, great upconverter
Cons: appears to be a dying format, no HDMI 1.3
if you want HD-DVD, I'd get the HD-A3 for a little more (lossless audio), if that desn't matter to you, it's a nice player for cheap. Read More at Epinions.com
