    HD-DVD price cuts start to filter through to UK

    When Toshiba slashed prices across its HD-DVD range in the US, we wondered how long it'd be before we saw something similar in the UK. Fortunately, it has come sooner than we thought at Amazon.co.uk.

    Yep ordered one today To make it potentially even better, you're covered by Amazon's "refund the difference" on any price-drops within 30 days, which I imagine is quite likely! I'll get a BD player when they drop to a similar price, HD-DVD will do me for now.

    Sorry Jim, but I've updated the article, the Amazon deal was a cracker, but Play.com has bested it as it's now selling the same bundle (HD-EP30 and 7 free HD-DVDs) for £119.99!

    Toshiba HD-EP30 from Play.com

    That's a pretty tempting deal!
    Unfortunately, not one that I can afford.
    Haven't all the picture studios gone to Blu-Ray now?

    Not yet, but I think it is only a matter of time!

    I think I will grab myself a PS3 when my bonus comes through. If we get one!
    Not around too often!

    Another update, Amazon too has dropped its price to £119.99

    Jim, if you ordered it the other day, you can contact Amazon and claim back the difference.
