Toshiba First to HD Video Format Market with the HD-1A


Today, Toshiba released their HD-1A HD-DVD player which makes it the first stand alone HD-format video player that is not an MCE (correct me if I'm wrong).  CNet News.com has a video review and I'd imagine that videophiles have already flocked to their local Best Buys and sold these puppies out.  A short editors take from about a month ago is linked off their article -- apparently the higher end XA1 was supposed to come out first.  Any ways, HD video is here, HD-DVD did it first, let's wait and see the FUD fly from the blu-ray camp.
