Many things led me to HD-DVD. A good article in Sound and Vision magazine. Glowing reviews by users of HD-DVD. The price, at the time was $225 (alot in my eyes but I got it lowered nearly $90 within a month). 10 free HD-DVD's. The biggest thing that got me to say fine I'll buy one before a winner was decided is this. I read all over the palce that Warner Bros was gonna stick with the dual format. To quote Stan (or was it Kyle?) from South Park, "You bastards!"

Luckily I love my HD-DVD player. I will get a bluray player too at some point because I am just a whore for movies and Fox puts out alot of my favorites.
