Excerpt: An ongoing complaint has been the high price for a HD DVD player, but few seem to remember that the first DVD player cost upwards of $1000 USD dollars, or that it takes a few generations for the price of any electronic device to drop. So we should be patting Toshiba on the back for the rapid release of new models featuring prices well under $500 USD. Lets’ take their HD-A20 for example.
Pros: Provides full 1080p resolution; ethernet port for networked content; reasonably priced
Cons: Average performance playing regular DVDs; inactive USB ports; remote is difficult to use in dim light
Excerpt: The new models of HD DVD and Blu-ray players are coming faster and faster. Even better, they're getting cheaper and offering more features. The big draw for the HD-A20 is its 1080p output. That, and a price tag of $499.
Excerpt: Introduction HD DVD vs. Blu-ray. It seems, once again, consumers are in the middle of yet another format war. While round one has seemingly come and gone with the introduction of both parties’ initial efforts a little over a year ago, like all good fights, nothing is ever won in the first round and consumers now find themselves entrenched in round two.
