Toshiba's HD DVD player, the HD-A1, has been alone on the market for about 2 weeks now. The units
seem to be selling well, but they are 'bout to get some competition from Circuit City and RCA. You can't find the
Toshiba model in any Circuit City store but they are still going to carry HD DVD players. The first one is from RCA
and is currently up for pre-order at CirucitCity.com
. Looks a bit like the
HD-A1 you say. Well, we hear that it is the same inner workings as Toshiba's model. The HDV5000
is going to retail for the same price and include the HDMI cable just like the Toshiba.
