This is a BD 1.0 player though which means it wont be compatible with future 1.1 and 2.0 discs. Some discs have been reported to not even play on old 1.0 players.

Also no HDMI 1.3 (not that you need it anyway) but more importantly no HD audio decoding (dont belive the info on that site) or bitstreaming. But it will pass uncompressed PCM.

However, it seems a multi region hack is surfacing for BD players, with a soldered chip.

Good price though, and hopefully a proper spec BD player will surface at a similar price soon.

good player but unfortunately beaten to joint 3rd in the HD (blu ray/HD-DVD) test in the jan 2008 edition of what hifi sound and vision....first was a HD-DVD player....now that will surely start the argument off again!
1st toshiba hd-ep35 HD-DVD player
2nd playstation 3 40gb blu ray player
=3rd sony bdp-s300 blu ray player
=3rd sharp bd-hp20 blu ray player

but the sony was tested with its rrp price as £400, so this does seem a good deal....i just paid almost that for a decent dvd player (denon 1940) as im waiting for one of the hd formats to die a miserable death or someone to bring out a decent dual hd player at a reasoanle price

the whole thing re: the war is crazy....if the blu ray forum had agreed to use the HDi format that HD-DVD's use then they could have killed HD-DVD....prob with blu ray is incompatbilities with PC's, specifically microsoft based ones and managed copying....but there are big companies who support both formats.....
HD-DVD
Microsoft*
Paramount
Universal
HP*
Intel*

BLU RAY
Sony*
20C Fox*
Disney*
*exclusive support

Logically it seems like blu ray being the winner certainly for the cinema, not because its better (not convinced it is) or cheaper (most arent) but because it has the advantage of the ps3 sales (so it wins via the backdoor).....but if so.....
then what about IT, well HD-DVD, yes but then that gives us 2 formats again until they resolve the compatbility issues...grr!

not that i'm interested in the format war myself, but those who are may want to read this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/technology/2008/01/hd_dvd_camp_implodes.html

perhaps blu-ray is the way to go.

Cant upgrade the firmware on this player?

So its more of a doorstop than the hddvd players :-D
#15
i am not trying to be funny, but can someone explain the reason why anyone would actually want to purchase this?
i really dont understand why you would knowingly buy something for £40 cheapr than something that will do far far more.

Just buy the playstation 3 for £265. Thats what I did last week when HD DVD died.

certified divx, upscaling dvds, wifi built in for streaming content from mac or pc. plus it has more games than you're led to believe.

A reason to buy a stand alone is if you have a home cinema amp which can't decode the HD audio formats off the HDMI ( very few can ). You'd need a standalone with a decoder so you can feed the analogue pre-outs to your existing amp. the HD audio formats are far-superior to DD and DTS, so a shame to miss out.

This player hasn't got a decoder, so I wouldn't buy it.

However, most people don't have 5.1 and 7.1 surround systems to get the true benefit of listening to HD audio.

I really can't see any other benefit from a player like this to buying a PS3 - plus for a few extra quid you get a significant number of additional benefits.

Bottom line is the PS3 is a well respected Blu-Ray player, nevermind a games console. A great deal of HDTV reviewers use the PS3 as their reference player.

I normally don't get involved in format wars but your information is completely wrong.

For starters HP is not HDDVD Exclusive, they are a blu-ray partner (http://www.blu-raydisc.com/index.html) along with Dell, Apple, Compaq (now owned by HP), Sun Microsystems and disc manufacturers such as TDK.

The only problems with Blu-Ray on windows is that it doesn't have built in Blu-ray support but with the installation of drivers and software this is not an issue and many pc's by HP now come with Blu-Ray drives as their optical drives with no problems at all.

I work as an IT professional for the NHS and HD-DVD has no use whatsoever to us. Try going onto the internet and buying a HDDVD Writer along with some blank media, having problems?? of course you are.

Blu-ray disc writers are readily available for around £160 for a Dual Layer BD Writer (that means 50gb of storage per disc). This makes it an ideal format for data archiving. And before people start bringing up 51gb HDDVD discs, They do not currently exist and neither do the writers so once again they are no use at all.

People seem to only think of the format war as a movie war but one of the main things that made DVD so popular was the ability to burn dvd discs in home/business pc's. HDDVD are missing out on a very big industry because of this.

-END RANT-

It always was 'more of a door stop'.

Thanks to how much Blutamax sucks, any Blutamax player you can buy now is already legacy and outdated - to run an actually working version of the Java crud they include with Blutamax, you need the latest player 'profile' lol and it doesnt exist yet.

btw - people seem to be forgetting that China has gone exclusively HD DVD - thats 40% of the world population...

Your only choice for an upgradeable player is a PS3. And instead of getting a second rate games console with inferior graphics, you could get an Xbox 360 AND a standalone HD DVD player for less...

Well, that's clearly your opinion...others would say that the hddvd drive for the xbox is mince however - not to mention noisy as hell.:whistling:

It can't even display 1080p at 24fps.

China may constitute a large populace, but they can't be buying too many hd dvds, as blu-ray outsells it at a ratio of 5:1. Hardly surprising given the majority of the population in China are on the poverty line.

Could this be the first format war Sony has won?
If so, wait for the prices to rise!
Especially on a format (unlike Betamax, Mini disc) that is inferior.
I've allways loved, and bought Sony products.
But BD is bovine excrement.
Toshiba has been clever.
Flooding the market with cheap HD players, will create a large customer base for the HD DVD discs.
Can Warner ignore this?
Time will tell.
