The first High Definition DVD Player to come to the UK is set to hit the shelves next month, the Samsung BD-P1000 will be priced at around £999. This Blu-ray format player will be closely followed in November by the HD-DVD Toshiba HD-E1, at a more affordable £450 this is Toshiba's entry level offering which will be followed a month later by the HD-XE1 at around £650. The main difference between the two Toshiba players is the HD-E1 only outputs 1080i and the HD-XE1 outputs 1080p. If your thinking of making the move to HD soon it maybe worth waiting until December for the HD-EX1, at over £300 cheaper than the Samsung offering, it looks like an interesting proposition. It seems the run-up to Christmas and beyond is going to be exciting for the HD market, so keep an eye here for the latest news.
