Besides being a smarter purchase, you also have the option to move the other in different room. [-X It's $1,499 CAN and it's Exclusive to Future Shop, comes out first week of March.


I'd love to read some reviews here.

For $1200, better off buying PS3 60GB and 360 Elite+HD DVD add on.

Picking a side is the last of your worries if u spend over a $1000 on a piece of LG hardware. A dual Format player is the way to go, if u dont own either player. Caus buying a first rate games console will not get u a first rate HD movie player.
But wait for the summer. Hopefully Samsung or Pioneer will have something better, with proper support for both formats.

Default Great experience so far ...

I have it and I'm really enjoying it so far. Granted, I picked it up as an open box for $800 (plus $120 gift card) - so it certainly took the edge off a bit.

Anyway, I've only had it for about two weeks but it is definitiely a blu-ray player first, HD-DVD player second.

Great picture quality on both formats, but I did run into some trouble with the POTC: Dead Man's Chest blu-ray disc, I can't play the dice game. However, I haven't tried updating the firmware yet.

Ironically, I haven't had one issue playing any of the HD-DVD's that I own.

So I guess the moral of the story is, if you can get a great deal on it, I think it's a fine machine. Otherwise, as it's been said so many times before, it's a bit overpriced.
