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
