That's little complex to answer. What TV/projector do you use it with? That's important as the A3 is only capable of 1080i (maximum resolution) and thereas needs a good deinterlacer.

ok i have a samsung 40inch 1080p lcd and will be using hdmi also so is the A30 worth it dont want to get no freezing locking up issues as it seems to be an issue with most of these players from what i read also is it REALLY a BIG DIFF from 1080i to 1080p

There is also the HDA35 which is a fantastic unit if you are interested in getting a surround sound audio system. Do you have one now or are you interested in upgrading in the future?

The HD-XA2 or the Onkyo clone are the best HD DVD players but at the current price, the HD-A35 is the best value.

Does your receiver have RCA audio analog connections...like 5.1 or 7.1? Or is it HDMI?

Both XA2 and A35 have full audio out connections, if your receiver lacks HDMI - like my HK receiver.
