Lowest price I have seen on this HD DVD Player. There was an original post back in Dec 2006 from "the jammyster", but thought it worth a mention due to the falling price point.

Product desc as follows;

High Definition DVD Player
720p & 1080i HD Output Resolutions
Multi-format Compatibility
HDMI & Component Connections
HD-DVD is here! The HD-E1 is a High Definition multi-format DVD Player from Toshiba. It can playback HDDVD, DVD, DVD-ROM,DVD-R/RW, CD and CD-R/RW and provides a variety of connections including HDMI and Component. The HD-E1 provides HD output resolutions of 720p and 1080i and is both PAL and NTSC compatible and can even upscale Standard Definition material to up to 1080i via HDMI.

With High Definition being the ultimate viewing pleasure, the HD-E1 is a must have for all HD Ready television owners.

More details can be found on the web link.

Like the good old days of beta & VHS :giggle:

I thought it might kick up a bit of a stink with some, but at that price I thought it might be worth a mention

HD-DVD is no dud nor is Blu-Ray, wait a while and the players that will be able to play both format will be in the shops.
#5
The lack of 1080p output should be a consideration for potential purchasers.

Edit: To clarify, this gives the best output that a 'HD Ready' TV can handle, but the best that a 'Full HD' TV can handle.
#6
Only if your TV does 1080p

Wait for prices to fall more - you can get HDDVD players for this price in dollars. Unlike a lot of other things, a lot of electronics prices are actually competitive with the US now, so we should be looking at players in the 130-150 pounds region really.

blockbuster announced theyre not stocking HD DVD in the US yesterday which people are saying is a nail in the coffin :o

either way this is a good price for the kit - at the moment, hd-dvd is the better format (due to price and avialabilty). Lovefilm rents hd dvds too, so its not dead quite yet...

Also, dont forget that you wont see the benefit of 1080p on anything less than 42". Pretty good price really, voted hot.

Remember that you can get 2 free HD DVD's too when purchasing a toshiba hd dvd player until the end of August.

Blu Ray does appear to have the edge so far in the US with Blockbusters announcement....but Blockbusters have not always got things right ;-)

I guess 2007 could be a make or break year for one of the formats :?

DVD -r and +R never really sorted itself out, but writers allow for both formats.

I remember when DVD first came out and the big companys were worried about the copyright on sending out a digitally perfect copy of a movie. I think the HD is a bit of marketing there will be HD2 then HD3 etc to keep us upgading TV and the like.

HD E1 is an excellent player for that money. If your receiver can take new audio formats, you could listen what you have never listened / experienced before :)

I don't think so. I seem to recall it is the Sony backed systems that have failed historically.:whistling:

There are a number of sources on the web that are reviewing Blockbusters decision to pull out of HD DVD. Try one of the following;

True, but I am not convinced this time around....

It makes it competitive which can only be good for the consumer anyway :)
