    The perfect gift to those HD-DVD fans who were worried about players being too expensive. Its funny that I hear from a lot of people who actually payed the full $500 for an A1 are now saying that they will wait until 2.0 players cost less than $200.Oh my.

    Will it support 2.0?

    Probably not. I guess you’re gonna say its now obsolete….

    Not obsolete. Just not up to par.

    Its not worth the price then.

    So which of the HD DVD players were worth the price? iirc, only two sold for $300 or less – the rest were more than $300… Were they too expensive also? Did all of us that paid $500 for the A1 get ripped off?
