Can you go wrong at this Price,
This review is from: Xbox 360 HD DVD Player (Xbox 360) (Accessory)
As previously mentioned this is available from £99 from certain high street games outlets.
Having recently bought a 37inch LCD I was a little disappointed with the quality of terrestial television. Anyone who has a HD tv will know what I mean - get too close and you can see the blockiness of the SD picture.
Like many people I was reluctant to "buy into" either bluray or HD-DVD at this early stage. However as I already have an XBOX 360 spending £100 to find out what the HD hype is really about wasn't too agonising a decision.
So far I have watched King Kong and Serenity on this player.
I know there have been mixed reviews on picture quality but let me assure you - if you output this player to a decent HD ready TV you will not be dissapointed. Colours look vivid and beuautifuuly saturated whilst the level of detail is breathtaking. You can pick out the individual beads of sweat and pores on an actors face and huge amounts of extra background detail.
It really is impressive.
FOr £100 - a real bargain.
Even if BluRay wins the day you haven't lost a great deal have you??
