    Seeing as how most of the reviews for this item are back when HD-DVD was still in production, I thought it might be helpful to write a review after the fall of the HD-DVD format.

    In my estimation, this remains a great value even today. As you can see, you can pick up used versions of this unit for fairly cheap (I got mine for $20). Microsoft continues to support the players, so even with the latest xbox update, you can rest assured that this unit will still work. In addition, many of the HD-DVD movies can be found fairly easily for pretty cheap. Most movies can be found for less than $5, many of them even 2 or 3. Obviously, most people won’t want all of the movies that were released on HD-DVD, but you’ll definitely find a few favorites. I’ve saved over $170 from buying HD-DVD movies verses Blu Ray. There are even a select few that have yet to be released on Blu Ray.

    As far as sound and picture quality goes, they are every bit as good as their Blu Ray counterparts. Due to the xbox’s capibilities, you don’t actually get the full audio quality, but the difference is so minimal that you would only know if you had a $1,000 sound system and the two movies side by side. The picture quality is amazing. Most titles, you won’t even need to find the DVD to compare, you’ll know instantly that it’s a vast improvement. Since the drive is an extension to your xbox, most universal remotes will work with the play, pause, skip, etc. functions on the movies.

    If nothing else, you can consider this an extra drive for your xbox to quickly switch from playing a game to watching a movie. But for the dirt cheap cost of these drives, it’s a wise investment.

    After quite a while of going through options trying to find a player for a second television, I finally decided to go with this. I realized that HD DVD is a dead format, but that’s not the main reason I was looking for something like this. I have a PS3 hooked up to another television that I use also as a blu-ray player and this was purchased to mainly be used as an upscaling player for standard dvd’s and to purchase a few older cheap hd dvd’s. Another reason I went with this was to ease some of the wear on my xbox while watching movies on it. I was very pleased with the quality this player offered. It does a nice job of upscaling, and hd dvd’s look great as well. I can say that after owning this that I don’t really see a concrete reason why blu-ray won the format wars. Picture quality shows no noticeable difference, some things hd-dvd is better at, and others blu-ray is better. Still, i’m happy I went with this option for my needs and if you don’t absolutely need to jump to blu-ray right now, and you have an xbox 360 then this would be a smart buy.
