This is pretty much the same as the Tevion model Aldi are selling however its minus the usb port, that means no Profile 2.0 support as there's no memory to stick it on. It also has a HDMI handshaking issue

HMV have a Toshiba Blue-Ray for £99, a better make maybe?

No they don't.
Toshiba do not and never have made Blu-ray players.
They did make high definition HD DVD players (which also upscale regular DVD beautifully).

Personally (if it is an HD DVD player) I might be tempted depending on the model (if it's an EP30 or EP35) there are 450+ or so high def movies out on HD DVD and selling for peanuts (as little as £2.99 @ HMV for a brand new 1080p HD movie = the same as a Blu-ray but at a fraction of the cost).

If accidents or breakdown worries you then it's easy to take the Xbox HD DVD add-on route (it makes a brilliant PC ROM drive with a simple USB connection).
Mine cost £20, new.
You could even, ironically, rip your HD DVDs to your PC & then burn them to Blu-ray blank media with one.......assuming Blu-ray burners and blank media ever get cheap enough for enough people to ever bother with them.

I'd be very wary of these cheap Blu-ray players.
You need to be able to update the firmware easily as the Blu-ray specs are (ridiculously) so fluid that new discs can be released and the players need their firmware updating to play them.
That requires on-going support from the manufacturer which is far from guaranteed with no-name bottom of the market brands
(heck it's a worry with some of the name brands).

Saw this at my local Asda (Great Bridge), they had 2 left

I'd hold on as the Blu Ray group has just started licensing to Chinese manufacturers ready to flood the market in December.

You might see players as low as £50.

In the specs it says - HD DVD Compatible: Yes.

Ha!
If it really was a dual format hD DVD/Blu-ray player @ this kind of money it might be a great buy.

Well I have a HD player and a ton of HD DVD's so ill give it a try when im back at home and report!

Thanks dani121 that is the exact player I have

P.s. I forgot to mention in the original post its finished in that shiny samsing black (remote too) so doesnt look too cheap!

I'd stick with the Sony PS3 for a blu ray player, best there is. It's updated often as well so you always got the latest firmware. And it's got HDD/Games.
