I'm leaning towards going for a Toshiba HD-XE1 and have 2 main concerns:

1) How do current owners feel about the machine overall? Are there any obvious weaknesses that aren't hinted at in the marketing material.

2) I will be buying a UK PAL player, but plan on importing HD discs from region 1. Does it allow for multi-region playback of both HD-DVDs and regular DVDs. (I haven't been able to find any definitive info on this elsewhere).

Any answers to the above would be greatly appreciated! Can't wait to enter the HD arena, couldn't stand waiting on the sidelines any longer and am feeling confident with choosing HD-DVD!

As far as I know it'll play HD DVD titles worldwide, but not regular DVD titles that are region coded. Fantastic player btw.
