Acerdirect are showing a model at £399.97. No other details though.
Both Amazon and Play are giving away the EP-30 for a ridiculous £77. The EP-35 is also available for around the £150 mark. That EP-30 price is quite good considering that it does a great job of upscaling DVD. Look at it as a standard def DVD player with Hi-Def functionality thrown in.
They can't be that different. There are a couple of dual format players out there and I have an LG Combo drive sitting in a media centre PC at home. If that little LG drive can incorporate all the relevant enginerring to cope with any differences then surely it just comes down to firmware/driver software. Tosh could release the firmware code to the opensource community and let them get on with it.
Writing on the wall at Asda
My local Asda used to stock both Blu-ray and HD-DVD but a week or two back both formats were removed from the shelves. Really anoyed me too as they had plenty of movies at £20 or under e.g 3:10 To Yuma new release at £15.98. I am looking upon their removal as a clear sign that the company is making a decision as to which format to support in the long term.
