The LG Super Blu combo player has made my life a lot easier. I jumped into high def this past summer with HD DVD and built up a library of 48 movies. Of course, as my luck would have it, the tides have turned considerably in blu ray's favor, so rather than give up on my HD DVD collection, and not wanting to take up extra space with a blu ray player, this LG is the ideal solution. It delivers impressive audio and video on both formats and upconverts standard dvds to near high def resolution. Set up was a snap and the player is very user friendly. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who already started an HD DVD collection and is now ready to enter the "blu" world.

ADDENDUM: Written 8/31/08
I want to add to my original review posted above: I just purchased two more of these LG BH200 combo players at Best Buy, where they were just on sale for $339.99. At this incredibly low price, I could not resist getting two more, one for my second Toshiba 42 inch LCD 1080p television and the other for my Panasonic 32 inch LCD 720p televsion. All my hi-def tvs now have this magnificent LG multi format player connected to them via HDMI cables, allowing me complete flexibility to watch all of my HD DVDs, Blu Ray discs and standard dvds. I have not ceased to be extremely impressed with the amazing crystal clear video images on both hi def formats. The sound is equally impressive, and, as of yet, I do not have any HDMI receivers, so I am using 5.1 channel DD and DTS surround sound, which is clear and crisp. I can only imagine how awesome 7.1 channel hi def sound must be. The standard dvds I have are upscaled to near 1080p resolution, allowing me to enjoy my existing dvd collection with almot hi def images.

Verified Purchase
I began my HiDef odyssey with HD DVD (about 80 discs) and want to have the ability to buy Blu-Ray if I find a title I feel I just have to have. The Toshiba players are terrific, but they're limited to HD DVD and great upconversion (could probably keep me happy for years, but I'm greedy: I want it all!). I got my BH200 through Amazon for $599, a little pricey, but I've got 2 formats in one. I was immediately disappointed because the picture and audio were not what I was hoping for. THEN I realized I was trusting LG's default factory settings. Once I got into the Setup menus and upped the brightness and adjusted the color, I had a crystal clear picture (on my LG LCD widescreen) and great audio through my Onkyo home theater system. Surprise, surprise! The upconversion is terrific! I have a hard time seeing the difference between many HD discs (both formats) and the SD version. This is going to save me a lot of money. Seriously, there are a few discs where HD makes a real difference--titles like "Planet Earth" and "Bladerunner", but I'm happy with the upconverted SD versions on most.

The unit operates flawlessly so far. There is a little pause while the unit figures out what kind of disc you've fed it, but it's nothing extraordinary. It fast forwards from scene to scene rather quickly. The remote is very easy to use, and hooking up the unit to just one HDMI (all you need for all three formats and one optical plug for sound for all including great-playing CD's) is simple as pie. I was up and running in 10 minutes.

This is a great product. I save space, need fewer HDMI and optical connections, and get great reproduction! For those like me with a significant library of HD DVD's and a desire to view Blu-Ray as well, this is a unit that I know will serve me and many others well.

I purchased this player a few days ago. I decided to purchase this player instead of the Samsung combo player. Both players have issues but the Samsung appeared to have the bulk of them.

I tried the Ratatoiulle BD and it worked great. I didn't have the annoying camera icon everyone was talking about. There have been no audio or video drop outs, at least that have been noticeable. Hd-dvd menus are a bit sluggish,about the same speed as my hd-a2, but slower than my hd-xa2 (which I returned after the WB announcement). I have the first Pirates movie on BD and it looks AMAZING on this player, much better than on my PS3. While it still looked good, t whe PS3 bd image was always a little grainy (though not as noticeable to my wife!. Hd-dvd's such as Bourne Ultimatum look incredible.

As far as upconversion, this player is just as good, if not better than my old hd-xa2. It uses QDEO processing, which is very similar to HQV processing. You have all the same settings plus a little more! I tried various dvds, everything from Frasier to Finding Nemo. This player is great at upconverting.

If you have at least $225 worth of hd-dvd's or just want the best of both worlds, this player is for you. So far it plays all my discs without hesitation.

Got on clearance at BB for $199.99. Upgraded the firmware and works great and even looks good. Better than my Samsung BD-P1200 and faster. Colors are deep and rich and sound is excellent. Looking forward to years of High Def viewing.

12-9-2009 Update. The unit stopped working 1 month out of warranty and I have to pay to send it to Alabama (shipping & insurance approx $25) and a flat fee of $69 just to look at it. It is unresponsive and from what I have read, these units require a new circuit board for about $350. LG knows about this issue with these units and yet still charges a flat fee to just look at it and then whatever other costs are incurred to repair it. I figure it will be about $425 to repair. Very disappointing.
