I couldn't hold out anymore. At 10:00 CST, 8:00 Pacific tonight, nearly my entire collection of standard def DVDs goes on the auction block on eBay, along with my Samsung DVD-HD931 player thrown in. There is a lot of good stuff in there, and many a good box set, so hopefully the lot will fetch a decent price. It's been a fun 8 years, but the HD-A1 is too tempting to pass up, and it's time to snag a TrueHD capable player for under $500 while I still can. The titles coming out (and recently released) from Warner and Universal alone are enough to where I will not consider this a bad investment even if it goes the way of Betamax. With Toshiba successfully targetting both the early adopter and the second tier market with their player and disc prices, while Blu-Ray focuses only on the wealthy early adopter, I'm hoping this will be a solid, long term investment. If not, I'll still have Batman Begins and Supes Returns in TrueHD. If Lionsgate has decided to go format neutral come the new year as rumored, that's all the sweeter.... Of course I could get no offers on my eBay listing and look like an idiot for posting this, but hopefully by the end of the month I'll be enjoying Ash, Batman, R.J. MacReady, and others in high def.
