Samsung offers HD-DVD player for $ 175
Before you start wondering when did Samsung start making HD-DVD players and even if they did why would they sell them so cheap, here is some info on the image. The following ad was published by Samsung in a Bombay (India) newspaper. Of course it is a goof up by Samsung India and it seems they are completely unaware of the HD-DVD standard.
The Samsung HD860 is a plain DVD player which upconverts conventional video and audio signals to 720p/1080i quality.
