HD DVD Fights Back

Toshiba isn’t going down without a fight! They have slashed hardware prices across the board. Their entry line player is now only $150 and their top of the line sits at $300. Combine that with Amazon’s disc sales and you have one heckuva deal. However, for most tech folks, it would be pretty hard to plunk down this kind of money knowing you might not be able to buy a movie for it in a few months.


Toshiba has announced it is not laying down yet. Effective yesterday, the HD-A3 MSRP has dropped to $149.99, the 1080p-capable HD-A30 to $199.99, and the top of the line HD-A35 to $299.99. Combined with an extended "perfect offer" of 5 free HD DVDs with every purchase, Toshiba’s HD DVD Concierge service, and a sudden 50% off sale on Amazon.
