If you've been waiting to get your hands on one of NEC's HD-DVD HR-1100A internal HD DVD drives, now's your chance. A seller on CDFreaks is offering one of the drives, which reads HD DVD discs at 2x, for a mere $120. That seems like quite the deal, given that the first home HD DVD players are clocking in at about $500 -- and won't be available until at least next month. Of course, we can't really think of anything you can actually do with this drive -- though it is backwards compatible with DVDs and CDs, so you can always use it for your old media and software discs. But where's the fun in that?

Any good new mid season HD shows?
