Picked it up yesterday. My wife has been giving me strange looks because I've been fiddling around with TV settings all afternoon (I tried calibrating the new player with a Sound & Vison tune up disc). We have a date to watch Blazing Saddles on HD-DVD tomorrow night, so that will be the true test to see if I can get a convert to the new format.


Edit: I thought Blazing Saddles looked really good. I asked my wife if she could tell if it was HD, and she replied "I guess so, I wasn't really looking, I just wanted to watch the movie". So she's not a convert yet. It may take a while, she said similar things when we first got HD cable, but now she knows when her favorite shows are on HD and refuses to watch them on the other TV.

Got mine this afternoon at Circuit City. The $40 off coupon was a deal I couldn't pass up.


Kong looks fantastic. I plan to watch it this weekend but I did get a chance to skim over some scenes. My next purchase will be Batman Begins but I will probably rent the majority of my HD material from Netflix until the format war sorts itself out.

As soon as my local Blockbuster starts renting HD-DVD movies I might pick up a player. I'm in no hurry though. Would prefer to just wait out the format war. Really curious to see how well Blu-Ray does now that PS3 is here. I'll be more likely to get a stand alone player than the 360 addon though just for the sake of better sound.
