They're getting there, slowly but surely. Once they hit $199 things should start to get interesting.

This is awesome news. It seems that Toshiba has really stepped things up for the HD DVD camp lately. We've heard some really great news over the past several days!

don't sign, you got 3 free hd dvds right?

it's not too bad, you get to enjoy first and without having to worry about when the A20 comes out.

The first gen is already near that price... $280 at amazon. Prices are falling quicker than I expected, which is nice.
