I actually owned an A2, but decided to return it when Wal-Mart offered a buyback (@ end of the 'war'). Resolved not to buy anything Sony, I picked up the LG Super-Blu player instead. So far, it's played everything I've thrown at it, and I haven't updated its firmware (have yet to try Avatar, though).

There's no way I'll replace my current HD DVDs; I don't mind being "purple".

I still have two HD DVD players but I will eventually replace all of the remaining HD DVDs with BDs. HD players are too slow, too buggy. And the movies themselves look soft compare to BD.

I disagree on too slow and buggy, a severe generalization, and I disagree on the movies being soft compared to BD, another severe generalization. In any case this is the wrong forum for HD DVD bashing, try the BD forum. As it says in the forum heading -- if you're not here for HD DVD, move on! The war is over!

The activity on this thread motivated me to purchase some additional HD-DVDs on Amazon and E-Bay. You can get some great HD movies for $5 with shipping.
