    Well, maybe by the holiday season at year's end we will see prices on the players and disks come down to more reasonable levels. At this point – the dispute took so long that I expect the internet and cable and satellite delivery is going to have a big hold on the HD market. Personally I just keep picking up 500GB portable hard disks to store my HD movies and concerts. At about $100 a pop it is a lot more cost effective.For the long run – we really are at a point where files are the future.

    I saw my first HDTV in a doctor's waiting room recently and although the detail was quite impressive, the cost is not worth it.

      It'll continue to drop. Before you know it, they'll be pasting them onto Post Toasties boxes.

        Oops, forgot the Post Toasties boxtops with my Contact! It would have to drop a lot to be worth it because I almost never just sit and watch TV/DVD. I almost always do handwork at the same time, so in a lot of ways, I'm listening to TV/DVD with occasional glances at the screen.
