Gadgetaholic reviews the new LG BH100 Blu-ray and HD DVD player.
The photo shows the HD DVD menus of the LG BH100. They are not as extensive as on HD DVD players because of the lacking HDi support. The review is detailed, but does not make it easier to put down the $1,199 for this unique gadget. As I mentioned in the Words of Wisdom on Blu-ray versus HD DVD on the weekend buying a Blu-ray and a HD DVD player is cheaper.
Quote from the BH100 review:
"For this test, we used our resident hi-def players mainly for feature comparison. These players are Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray Disc player and Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD Player. The test movie was Training Day (2001), one in Blu-ray Disc format and the other in HD-DVD.
To test the player's DVD upconversion capability, we used about 10 DVDs from our collection, ranging from “Finding Nemo” to “Star Trek: The First Contact”. First off, the load time. It took 30 seconds to load the Blu-ray Disc version of Training Day vs. 40 seconds for the HD-DVD version. "
