Summary: I am tempted to just write "You can do better than this item" but this probably would not be very useful even though I don't even know if this is still sold. 1. Very very slow load times 2. No java menu support for HD-DVD's (who cares now really) 3.
Won't let you play Special or Bonus Features on HD-DVD Discs!

Summary: None of your HD-DVD disc's special-bonus features can be played on this unit. ONLY THE MOVIE ITSELF! In fact, the title menu will not even appear when playing an HD-DVD disc. YOU WON'T LEARN THIS THROUGH THE PRODUCT SPECS!
Summary: One tray solution to the HDDVD/Blu-Ray format war. Put in either a HDDVD or a Blu-Ray disc and it plays. Period. Makes format irrelevant. Both formats look equally good and more and more of these hybrids will be the answer. Price needs to drop a bit still.
Summary: For people who don't want to live in a mechanical jungle, i.e a dvd player, Blu Ray as well as HD DvD player - then the LG BH100 is a good option. It also makes sense for those who have purchased HD DvD's and do not wish to spend hundreds of pounds dumping these and replaceing these with Blu Rays.
Awful. Should be called Blutamax. Buy an HD Player instead for less...

Summary: Put quite simply, dont waste your money. Spend £119.99 on an HD DVD player instead. This oversized piece of junk takes nearly 2 minutes!! to turn on and load a disk. It's also obsolete already.
Summary: I have only had this unit for 2 weeks but it DOES play both Blu Ray & HD DVD as well as up convert your stock of regular DVDs to High Def! It won't play the HDi "special features" menus w/o some manual selection, it will do the Blu Ray menus.
Excerpt: Saw this at a friends house the other day - well i couldnt miss it since he was carping on and on about it. You might ask what all the hullabaloo was about? Well, this is the first dvd player that incorporates both blu ray and hd-dvd in one pretty little package.
Pros: both formats in one system, great pictures as you'ld expect
Summary: Que deciros de este pedazo de reproductor si que encuanto calidad de imagen y sonido es insuperable eso es verdad y que utiliza las ultimas tecnologias en formato BluRay y HD DVD pero seamos honestos quien tiene tanto dinero para aceder a este reproductor ?
Pros: Ultima calidad de imagen
Cons: Tener que pagar el precio de una tecnologia punta
