After at least 3 years of reliable service, my Samsung DVD player gave out and started freezing during movie playback. Perfect timing since today the Toshiba A3 HD-DVD players are going for $169 at Sears with 7 free movies – 2 inside the box and 5 via mail in coupon. Toshiba has a really good website dedicated to HD-DVD here. I’m not sure if either Blu-Ray of HD-DVD formats will both be supported ultimately, but I hope so!
