Both current generation HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players will provide pristine 1080p/24fps video for your 110. The HD video PQ of the players are identical. There is a wide variability in source material quality, however.
Your trade off and value decision would be based on the other features and what they mean to you, like SD DVD upconversion, audio interfaces, cost, and if your favorite movies happen to be exclusively on one format or the other format. To get the most PQ out of SD DVDs, the XA2 (with its well implemented Reon chipset) is the best while the A35 is close.
Lots of info in the HDDVD and Blu-Ray player forums, you can spend months there in research. I'm more familiar with HDDVD players and you can't go wrong with either the A35 or XA2, but they may have features/capability you don't need, and the lower cost A20 will play HD DVDs just as well as the top line A35 and XA2s.
