Good HD DVD solution if already have xbox 360
Strengths: Cheapest HD DVD player
Weakness: Has to use with PC or xbox 360
Got the Xbox 360 HD DVD player with free Heroes season 1 boxset, free king kong HD DVD, xbox 360 media remote and 5 hd dvd by mail in rebate. A lot of free stuff with the right promotion.
To output 1080p you need either a hdmi or vga output.
As for sound, don't think it can output trueHD, but my receiver does not support trueHD anyway.
All in all, an inexpensive way to get into the HD world.

XBOX 360 HD DVD
Strengths: Very simple to connect with the XBOX 360.
Weakness: Does not have a direct HDMI port. Must rely on the new version XBOX 360 for the HDMI.
The quality of HD DVD playback is excellent. Highly recommended if you have a XBOX 360. The player looked simple, clean, and very compatible with the XBOX 360. You cannot go wrong with this one if you decided to jump into high definition.

Reasonably Priced Addition to an XBOX 360
Strengths: Plays HD-DVDs. Loads HD-DVDs faster than any stand-alone player.
Weakness: Loud, especially since the XBOX has to be running concurrently. Would be ideal if the HD-DVD drive was integrated into the XBOX itself.
If you already own an XBOX 360, this is a worthy addition for HD-DVD playback functionality, rather than a stand-alone player. The biggest problem is the fact that this drive must be plugged into the XBOX for functionality, and that the XBOX must be powered on for this drive to work, meaning that users are cursed with noise from two devices when they're using this drive. The best thing about this...

The best thing about this drive is the price, but this advantage is quickly being diminished by the dropping prices of stand-alone players. Bottom line--if you already own an XBOX 360, consider this player. Otherwise, go with a stand-alone player.

HD on the cheap
This is a great little unit. If you've already got a 360, you can add HD to it for a ridiculously low price. It's a no brainer. The quality is awesome, interface is decent. Highly recommended

HD DVD Xbox 360
Strengths: High Definition player and a good deal
Weakness: unsettled format war
I bought it because it is really cheap. HD-DVD player, remote, and 6 HD-DVD movies for around 150 bucks. What can I say more? I am concerned about its unclear future, but even though Blu-ray wins this format war, it'll be fine with me. I can enjoy excellent high def. movies at a reasonable price NOW.
