BTW,

I'd bet you $10,000 cash you couldn't determine which was which of a 1080i/p playback to a 1080p TV. A 1080p TV displays 1080p PERIOD, regardless of what you feed it. Deinterlacers in current 1080p TV's produce the exact same image and you gain no benefit from sending 1080p versus 1080i from your playback source.

Quit swallowing marketing BS. The only thing at 1080 which makes a slight difference is 24Hz playback due to the elimination of judder caused by inverse telecine.

These players will be marketed entry level and will put HD DVD into the home. Cutting completely uncessary buzzwords and bulletpoints keeps costs down. I'd probably say "pfft" if you listed the display you have but I would also recognize the need for it in the industry.

Is that the set MSRP for these? I didn't see any mention of retail pricing anywhere...

Rumor is $179, but just a rumor. Toshiba's own branded players are expected to go as low as $249 when these hit. If these players get pushed into WalMart who knows what will happen.

There is really no way to make fun of this announcement, anyone who does is a BD fanboy. ( not referring to you )

Do you know if they are actually manufacturing the drive itself or are they just OEM'ing some other brand's drive and adding their housing/internals?

It somewhat looks like a Toshiba chassis, but I don't know.

1080p sets start from $999 now, so yes they should have them.

If sales of the Wii tell us anything, people love cheap.
