How Much Does an HD or Blu-ray DVD Player Cost?

 
 average costMedium: $180-$500+ 

When HD (High-Definition) DVD Players first came out, there was a "standards war" -- a competition between two competing next generation DVD formats -- Blu-ray, championed by Sony, and the HD-DVD Format, promoted principally by Toshiba. Initially, the term HD DVD Player was sometimes used generically refer to one of two types of players -- a Blu-ray DVD Player (which used the Blu-ray format) or an HD DVD Player (which used the HD DVD format). In February 2008, Toshiba halted development and support for the HD DVD format, and so now the term HD DVD player generally refers to Blu-ray DVD Players.

Typical costs:

  • Budget Blu-ray players range from $160?-$200, though high-end players can range $350-$500+. More details are available at How Much Does a Blu-ray DVD Player Cost.
  • Although the other HD DVD format will no longer be supported, during the summer of 2010, the older kind of HD DVD Players and movie were sometimes available -- often at deep discounts -- as retailers cleared their inventories. More details are available at How Much Does an HD DVD Player Cost.
