    Guess I am lucky. I purchased a HD-DVD player a couple weeks ago. I couldn't get it to work with my new 1080p TV so I took it back.

    That's a great story Efc... anyone else have a close-shave with obsolete hardware? Like, you bought a tape deck for the car, but returned it since CDs were just released?!

    I have a bud that works at Best Buy and he says that peeps are still buying HD DVD stuff......just goes to show u how most folks go through life without a clue unless they have a friend in the know. You would think that the sales staff would guide them towards blu-ray and not let them piss away their money on soon to be..........................................gone technology.

    That is a good solution if you are a gamer. If not, it is just another very expensive option to get HD. I worry that there will not ever be a value priced option due to a lack of competition. Hope I am wrong.
