For those that don’t know, for the past several years a format war has been taking place over the next generation of DVDs. The two competing formats are HD DVD and BluRay. Both offer a high-definition version of movies that look great, but I’d put off buying a unit until one format became the standard.
I’m still not sure which format will be the eventual winner, but in advance of Christmas the price of HD DVD players has dropped so low in the last few days that we couldn’t resist the urge to buy one. Most deals have been for limited quantities so we missed a few, including Leandra’s trip to a Walmart at 7:45a on Friday (Leandra: grrr!), but we finally snagged a great deal on a brand new Toshiba HD-A3 this Saturday.
We can’t wait to watch Top Gun in its full high definition glory!
