Well, I had thought I was going to wait this whole format war thing out, but Fry's offered a deal I couldn't refuse. They had the HP external HDDVD drive on sale for $180 - $50rebate = $130 (~$145 after taxes) and it included the HD version of PowerDVD (~$75 value). I figured at that price I could afford to play with HDDVD even if it ends up losing the war. The downside is that I don't currently have a disk top try on it, but I should have one on Wednesday from Netflix to try it out with. If that works out, I am going to buy a copy of Serenity and possibly the HD version of DVE. I'll post up the results when I get the disk.
