Excerpt: It may seem strange to write a review on an obsolete product that uses an obsolete technology, but if you find one of these players cheaply somewhere then you may like to consider buying one. I had no interest in HD-DVD as a format as I was happily enjoying Blu-Ray on my PS3 and thinking about maybe getting a standalone Blu-Ray player at a later time. Then these players started to become available at lower and lower prices.
Summary: This is the Euro version of the Toshiba HD A35. I've had mine for just over a month now and I think it is an amazing player. It upscales regular DVD superbly and it's HD DVD playback is flawless. It's true that loading times are a little slower than regular DVD, but surely everyone by now knows this is the case - these players are far more complex than regular DVD. Think of it like this; you wouldn't expect your PC to come on instantly, would you?
