I am no super rich guy that can thow away for a few bucks that $20,000+ of dollars took to buy my over 1,200 red laser DVD discs, not counting disc players. This post has festered in my brain for some time. I can afford what I have in my red laser collection but to have the same amount of HD-DVD disc's and players is only a dream to me! I am retired but a lot of you have families to support, essentially we are in the same boat. What we want and what we actually can afford! How will you handle HD-DVD is the topic?
