  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Picture quality, sound quality, user interface, sleek design, online capabilities.
  • Cons: Initial powering on of the system is slow (about 20 seconds).
