I know it's a dead format but if you need HD-DVD player (like me) to play your collection on or simply a DVD player with excellent upscaling then you can't go wrong.

The Littlewoods Clearance store in Flint (North Wales) had about a dozen left. They were all unopened and brand new. As an added bonus they were doing 10% off electricals today which means I got this excellent DVD player £44.10. Bargain
I spent this afternoon watching Hot Fuzz on HD-DVD and will spend tomorrow watching The Bourne Trilogy.
