consumers are more likely to choose either a HD DVD player or a BD player than a dual-format model, the sources analyzed.
consumers are more likely to choose the best value format and a dual format one would be the best value, who ever the sources are the need to re-examine their information.

i agree. consumers dont care about some lame format war. these dual players are the best solution and nice big screw you to the corporations who think they can take advantage of us.

Only US$545, that's really cheap IMO for a Dual Format Player. LG's Combo Player is $1100, and doesn't have all of the features of HD-DVD/Blu-Ray. This is really cheap, and something I'd get.
