http://www.homemediaretailing.com/ne...rticle_ID=9539 I know I'll get flamed for this, but seeing as the Samsung costs double the price of the Toshiba unit, this is good news indeed. To be fair, the article mentions more HD DVD units have been sold in the past 3 weeks: those who were waiting for BD or Samsung in particular jumped in immediately. HD DVD enjoys strong word of mouth and better quality transfers. We'll see how the sales come out with Panasonic and Pioneer players about to hit in the next 6 weeks. Sharp & Sony have their players in October, I know a lot of people are waiting for Sony's in particular. I know the HTF in general is tilted towards HD DVD, but sales figures like this is what the studios look at. Universal is probably watching this with interest.
