Default First "Star Trek:TOS" HD-DVD Review! (Hint: and it ain't from Beatboy)

It's instead at www.themanroom.com and not surprisingly it sounds like this set is awesome. Personally, I can't wait!!

Yes, thanks for this - far more informational that anything Beatboy comes up with.

I can't wait either!

Instead of buying this for myself, I may just buy this for my dad, and see if I can get him more into HD. He'd love it much more than I will (I'm still buying it as soon as I can get it in a store or on the 27th).

Well, it's technically correct. I wouldn't say that anything from Beatboy's site is "professional" in the least. It's sort of a "Digital Bits Jr.".

here's an interesting thought. so when this gets released, it will *technically* count as a hi def disc because they're combo only... and since it's only available as a combo this could be a big week for hd dvd.

It'll sell HD DVD players, that's for sure. That Phaser Remote mail in offer is also going to help out tremendously in selling players.

I got it from Barnes and Noble using their 50% off coupon(expired now) for $82. Even though I already have an HD-A1, I need to get another HD DVD player after the 20th to qualify for the Phaser Remote. I am currently trying to figure out what'd be a good upgrade for my HD-A1.

The review says the series was remastered / retransfered , I wonder what the japanese 16/9 version looks like. There's some captures on the web, but they are from transmitted 16/9 copies, they might differ on the actual HD discs.
