HD-DVD players
Ayup,
Is it possible to get a HD-DVD player for less than thirty quid yet? (That isn't the X-Box one) I've just ordered the Star Trek remastered set (Only £17.95!) and want to try out the HD-DVD side.

Yes, I know it's a dead format, but at that price it was worth it for the DVD side alone.

Not that many HD DVD (no hyphen) players around nowadays because the hardware has been discontinued. Haven't seen a standalone for that price.

I'm happy that I've got 2 for my meager collection of about 15 movies.  Happy

Well I do declare madame, the nerve! lol Wink

Canuk bucks have been worth more or less the same as US bucks for the last 2 years. Right now I think they're at $0.95 cents US, but they fluctuate to as much as $1.05 US depending on the time of year and the price of oil.

It's been great for buying things across the border since it's still such a HUGE rip off to shop here.

As for the original question, if you can find an HD DVD player at all anymore the cheapest I've seen is about $120.

He knows that once you visit and we have your address, we fly to where you live every time you call us flappy heads, strip you naked, cover you in honey and then bring you to the zoo for playtime with the bears.

Very Happy

I'm just kidding. We don't always strip you naked. Wink

You might want to look on the AVForums for a player. People are selling them on there, but the prices are still holding at around the £100 mark.
