With right around one million HD DVD players sold, it is going to be a very slow fade.

In my case, my HD DVD player is the xBox add-on. I always considered this a temporary solution, as one day my xBox will suffer red-ring syndrome and the add-on is as good as a brick when the xBox dies. My intent was to use the add-on as an affordable means of enjoying high definition films until combo players like the Samsung 5000 become not only affordable, but hopefully also Blu-Ray 2.0 compliant.

same with me, i got the cheapest of each(360 addon and 1400) it only cost me 400 as BB gave 4 free in store titles and i got 10 free movies from the rebates. personally i'd wait untill the bd-up5500 drops below $500 or another stable company comes out with a low cost player( i have a toshiba dvd/vcr combo and it does things on its own randomly, like rewinding the tape 45 minutes after i hit stop) that supports the full 2.0 profile.
