    A decent buy if you have a 360. You should, in theory anyway, be able to get some cheap HD-DVD’s soon, as I would expect a fire sale to start on them soon. I just picked up the Matrix Trilogy in HD for $45, it goes for $80.

    @statnut: That is what I want to pick up. I have a 360, and a projector that is 800×600. The horizontal resolution is slighly higher than standard def, but when letter box the vertical is actually lower than standard DVD. I had the HD-DVD drive, and the MUCH improved color compression did make movies look noticably better. I sold it for over $100 a year ago as I needed the cash. For $50, it might be worth getting again, to get the Matrix and Planet Earth. I’ll probably be upgrading to a 720p projector within a year and i’d rather spend my money on that then on a P3S (only Blu-Ray player worth buying).

    Not even worth that price if you ask me. I bailed on my XBOX360 and picked up a 60GB PS3.

    Still too expensive. I’ll bite if the price reaches $20.
