Supermarkets are doing great deals on HD-DVD players

Don’t buy one. HD-DVD is deader than a particularly dead dodo.

    I’m not sure that wouldn’t be a good deal. HD-DVD films will probably be dirt cheap very soon and the player will be too (who would buy an obsolete media player!). You would still end up with a decent upscaling DVD player and a bunch of HD movies on the cheap.

    It all depends on the deal. Until 2 weeks ago the 360 hd-dvd add-on was great value. £100+5 free disks.

    If you’re in the market for a decent DVD player (not HD) then I think that HD-DVD would be worth a look.

  2. I bought one recently. I wanted a decent but cheap VCR/DVD combi, and have no interest in HD (at least, not for a while yet), so it made sense.

    Yep, if you want a DVD player and don’t care about HD then sure, it’s worth considering if it’s a good deal – although my current DVD player cost a grand total of £29 in Asda (bare-bones Philips one) and it’s fine too.

    That’s the Toshiba HD-EP30 down to £80 including 300 and one of the Bourne films and an HDMI cable.

    It seems some sellers are renaming their HD-DVD players as upscaling DVD players:
