Some of the best value upscaling DVD players are in fact HD DVD players. They aren't of interest to me personally because I play all other 5" shiny disc formats I own a lot more than I play HD DVD but for someone with interest in only region 1 DVD-V, CD and HD DVD, the players are great values. The market that wants the best DVD-V performance but doesn't care about HD DVD probably doesn't even know much about the Toshiba HD DVD players since the Toshiba standard DVD players have been consistently poor over the years.
