      LG's had a dual player for some time now. I saw an open-box unit at Best Buy last week for $600. I'm glad a competitor's finally come out with one! Also, if you have a mediacenter pc, you can buy the LG hybrid rom for only $300 at newegg. Congrats on your new player tho! I'd love a full report.

      Me I'm waiting for Apex to come out with their play-anything $40 player. I just know that'll happen once I drop the cash on a new hd-dvd/blu-ray player.

        LG's was the first... but it was only 1080i and did not play the enhanced HD-DVD menu system... the new Samsung 5000 plays both Hi-Def DVD formats at 1080p and fully supports all features of BOTH formats...even thou it looks like HD-DVD is dying IMO and Blu-Ray is the winner... but it's nice to have any and all disk playable from one machine... I had one of each, took up to much space and time to set up and play the right format.

                The BIG difference for me is that although the ROMS play both and at a fraction the cost, there is no pc sound card that outputs the latest Blu-ray/HD-DVD sound codecs, such as DTS-HD and Dolby True-HD. This new Samsung 5000, however, does. It really is a bad to the bone player. For now, though, the rom will probably be my pick for now. Just because I don't have a home-theatre receiver that decodes those new formats anyhow.
