HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray War
With the HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray war going on, buyers are torn between which format to buy. I thought is that we should support the one that gives us the most vlue for our money. That to me is HD-DVD. Why support brands that force consumers to pay 3 times more than the competitors prices? Don't give in to these companies that are trying to monopoloize the industry standard when neither formats have any performance advantages to the other. Each side can argue their points, but in the end, it's all about who will be ripping you off. Blue-ray supporters strategy is to make it seem like just because some top movie studios are supporting their format that it is the superior format. Don't be fooled by their claims. HD-DVD has just as much to offer in quality and performance as Blue-ray. In fact, Sony's Playstation III doesn't even offer DTS surround sound audio in its Blue-ray player. My advice to anyone who is still on the fence about these two formats is to buy an HD-DVD player now. Watch what you still can in the HD-DVD format. And use it as an upconverter for regular DVDs. If and when Blue-ray finally wins the format wars, don't give into them unless they dramatically drop their prices. I have a Mitsubishi 1080p 65" LCD and regular DVDs look great on my Toshiba HD-A3 Player HD-DVD Player. You can't hardly see the difference!
Solid low priced HD DVD PLayer
The Toshiba HD-A3 is an outstanding value. It replaces the model HD-A2. I bought one for my Father for a Christmas present and he is delighted. I own a Toshiba HD-A20. It too is an excellent player now replaced with the model HD-A30. When the A3 came up on eBay I decided to bid on it. I got it for a very reasonable $87!! Plus $22 shipping. Now I have the A20 and the A3. I notice that the A3 loads much faster than my A20 and the overall size of the A2 is smaller and thinner than the A20. As for performance, the A2 played everything I threw at it: HD DVD, DVD and CD. Excellent picture quality and great sound. I won't bore you with all the technical details as you can look those up on the web. Let me just say that this HD DVD player is everything that most peope would want from a HD DVD player. Excellent quality, picture and value.
Toshiba HD-A3 Player
On the plus side, this unit gives a good picture, and has a lot of features. On the minus side, it takes several seconds to power up, and load. Also there are not enough out put ports when using the rca type cables. In my case, I needed extra audio outputs for my surrond system. The player only has 1 set of outputs. If using the HDMI output, it will resolve the problem, but that will be the only option.
HD DVD Player Good/Bad
Excellent unit! Very well priced and great addition to A/V system. Disappointments with only 2 channel audio out. (no 6 channel for surround) Very happy with formats that it plays and the quality on a 1080i HD monitor. A little disappointed with how it shows full screen movies - picture is distorted. Widescreen format shows up AWESOME! Minimal negative, but cannot hook it up to switched power on receiver. Unit loses settings if not plugged into constant power. Would buy again, but it is definitely not a single DVD player solution for system.
Toshiba HD-A3 Player HD-DVD Player
I decided to go with Toshiba's HD-A3 mainly because of Toshiba's reputation and the price. I wanted a nice little player that would play HD DVDs that wasn't gonna cost $300 or $400 dollars. I don't see the point of spending over $120 on some player that plays HD DVDs when HD DVDs are still pretty rare and can't be rented at most Blockbusters and Hollywood videos. You go to Wal-Mart and they have like 10 different movies to choose from. Plus the new releases cost up to $34! The look of this unit is nice. It's shiny and black with a thin silver strip at the bottom and matches perfect with my Sharp Aquos 32in HD TV - which is another reason I chose it. It comes with 2 HD DVDs, but I don't see the freakin' point when you can't even watch them!!!!!! Here I was all excited to get this thing after waiting a week for it to arrive from Fed EX just to find out they don't give you any component cables or HDMI cordS to hook the freakin' unit to your HD TV! How ridiculous!!! What is up with these new electronics these days? You buy one thing and then you gotta go out and buy all these other little things just to get that on thing to work. It's like buying a car, but it doesn't come with the engine or something. Ridiculous. Now I gotta spend my day looking for cables, etc. Otherwise, it looks great and I'm sure I will be very satisfied with it after I get the cords to actually watch it.
