Blu-ray, HD DVD players: Clunky, unimpressive

OK, so the new Blu-Ray DVD players are not all that great. Boy, Sony had better get it together if they plan on selling these devices for the asking price. I mean, I don’t think many folks would pay for a unit that looks like it came from the 1980’s?

All kidding aside, it was shocking how entirely un-high-tech most of the Blu-ray and HD DVD players on display looked. Each of the formats was represented by machines from many of the leading consumer electronics manufacturers–Toshiba, Hewlett-Packard, Sony, RCA, Mitsubishi and so on–yet one would have walked away from perusing each of the exhibits with a sense that the companies had neglected line items for design in their budgets.
