Just came into one of these along with a few HD-DVD movies from someone who was going to junk it. Works fine although I haven't tried any Blu-Rays in it since I have the 4K Sony for that. Had a Toshiba HD-A30 back in the day which broke, and all my HD-DVDs were accidentally given away in a move.
Anyway, glad I have this player since I rebought the HD-DVD version of The Big Lebowski, which looks so much better than the Blu-Ray that the machine is worth keeping in my setup solely for that!
