Default Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD

Can someone give me the run down on this player vs the newer one toshiba model?

I see it on sale for $303 on Amazon w/ 5 free movies.... Seems like too good of a deal to pass up.

Would this be a major upgrade in pq and aq over the 360 hd dvd drive i'm useing now?

Well it has hdmi obviously, so that's an immediate plus over the 360 drive (both in PQ and it's ability to decode next-gen audio formats and output them as 5.1 PCM audio).

But I assume you're talking about the A2 vs. the A20. From what I understand, the only difference is that the A20 has HDMI 1.3 and 1080p, while the a2 is restricted to hdmi 1.2 and 1080i. So unless you're big on 1080p, you might as well go for the A2. Also, just be aware that the A2 and the A20 lack "deep color" specifications (which is odd because the a20 has 1.3), and you'll only get that on the XA2.

Thanks for the info.
